Radio stations and music channels are typically jam-packed with soppy love songs when Valentine's Day rolls around each year. Although, not everyone appreciates having to hear Adele's Someone Like You or Leona Lewis' Bleeding Love on the most romantic day of the year.
For those who are single, cynical or would just like a change from the norm, IBTimes UK have created a playlist that will leave you feeling empowered, uplifted and in the mood for a good dance. Happy Valentine's Day!
