Friday Playlist: Getting to Know You

Songs to trade with a new crush.

This playlist tells the story of two people who got to know each other (and fell in love) by sending songs about falling in love to each other via YouTube. Give this mix to someone you REALLY like. Who knows? Maybe it could work for you, too.

    I love the last song very much! It describes soooooo well the situation of having feeling for someone, but with a HUGE question of love in mind….

    By the way, the Kings of Convenience song is so cute. I hope I can play it for someone I love one day :)
