Happy Valentine’s Day: Grateful Dead Love Songs Playlist
Grateful Dead 1970
In celebration of today’s love-filled holiday, we here at JamBase have dug deep into the depths of the Grateful Dead’s catalog to create the perfect Valentine’s Day playlist for you and yours. Many musicians have a slew of love songs in their repertoire, but few can write ’em like Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia used to. Add in Bobby’s compositions and a few choice love-themed covers the band recorded, and the Grateful Dead had the perfect foundation to lay down timeless pieces about love lost or love found.
With a mix of studio and live recordings ranging from classic love ballads like “Jack-a- Roe” to Pigpen’s rendition of “I’m A King Bee” – this playlist is the ultimate Valentine’s Day soundtrack for any Dead fan.
