Announced on February 11, The Knot, leaders in weddings and Spotify, leaders in music, have teamed up just in time for this Valentine’s Day and have curated a wedding playlist aptly titled “Wedding Songs by The Knot” on Spotify, influencing couples everywhere.
In association with the teaming, Spotify and The Knot teamed up with pop superstar, Meghan Trainor, to include her full, six song EP, The Love Train, on the playlist, with inside commentary from Trainor herself about her EP, which has a lot to do with her husband (whom she recently married). Some takeaways from Trainor’s commentary include:
- I wrote ‘Marry Me’ when I was on tour, and I was dating Daryl…it was our one month anniversary. On our one month anniversary, I was still nervous to write songs in front of him but I went into the other room with my ukulele and I wrote a love song for him, and it ended up being [Marry Me], saying please marry me. It’s a bit aggressive after one month, but he loved it and it ended up being our wedding song when I walked down the aisle.”
- “I wrote ‘I’m Down’ because in the beginning of dating Daryl we both fell for each other right away. And instead of saying ‘I love you’ because it was very early and we were both scared to scare the other person, we would say ‘I’m down'”
- “I’m so excited to be teaming up with The Knot and Spotify to spread the love this Valentine’s. Everybody deserves love, so I hope these songs inspire you all to dance, sing, smile and maybe even shed a tear.”
