Songs To Dream of Slow Dancing With Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes To

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Pace chapter.

I have been listening to jazz and oldies so much recently that I felt compelled to compile a playlist of some of my favorites. As I added songs, I realized they all had a similar vibe. These are all songs I would dream of slowing dancing to with our favorite Marvel studs, Steve and Bucky. Also, to clarify I’m talking about 1940s Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes and pre-serum Steve Rogers. That’s just how my mind is working with this playlist so don’t pick me apart for choosing skinny Steve. I don’t care if he’s canonically 5’4 and 95 pounds; he deserves a slow dance too. Anyway, rant about my little guy Steve aside, I present you with my 70 song deep pride and joy of a playlist. My musical child, if you will.
