Welcome to Part 3 of our Valentine's Day 'Love' Songs Mix! Love songs come in all forms - some are your basic kind, some are about lost love, and others are a weird, stalker-ish obsessive kind of 'love.'
In this installment, Sarah and I each chose 6 songs - make sure to scroll down to the bottom to tune into our ongoing Valentine's Spotify playlist. If you missed any of the previous parts, you can start at the beginning right here.
