Love with Annie Nightingale

Annie Nightingale looks at love across 50 years in music to celebrate Radio 1's 50th anniversary - expect pure love, painful love, sweet love and overwhelming love...

Radio 1 was born a whole 50 years ago, at the height of the first 'Summer of Love' in 1967. So in this, the second of four special shows celebrating on our 50th anniversary, Annie Nightingale looks at Love.

Love is pure, painful, sweet, dreadful, overwhelming and it's one of the most written about topics in songs. But this isn't a Love Letters, Valentine's or Slow Jams compilation - this is love with a twist, dedicated to anyone, whether they're in love, out of it, or just a lover of pure, good music. Of course you can expect some normal love song culprits like Adele, The Beatles and The XX, but all with a good measure of spice to give it that extra kick.
