I wanted to make a Valentine’s Day playlist with a literary twist, so I thought I’d imagine some song pairings for a few of literatures’ more well known couples. Try out the matching game to see if you can figure out what song I intended for what couple. I’ve provided a taste of the lyrics with each song in case you’re not familiar with it. Good luck!

The playlist can be found here, so do give it a listen.
