Friday Office Party! 

It's all about the love!

It's the Source's Love edition of the Friday Office Party! Don't expect every song to be of the romantic nature—but each one does include the word love.

The opening track "I Love It" by Icona Pop is anything but a bubbly relationship song. Instead it's a feisty dance track, a fist-pumping break-up anthem. From there our playlist travels to electro-R&B via Sam Sparro and gets tongue-in-cheek with "Love You When I'm Drunk" from euro-pop artist Mika.

Of course, our musical love gauntlet isn't without some throwback tunes: we've got tracks from The Darkness and The Time as well.

But perhaps the most random song we decided to include is from Punk Goes Pop Volume Three. It's a blend of scream metal and synth from Michigan band We Came As Romans that sees them cover the Justin Timberlake song "My Love." For some reason we can't quite put our finger on—this combination totally works.

In all, 15 songs await your love-longing ears. Just don't expect the playlist to spark any office romances. You're much better off just using it to pass the time until the clock strikes 5 p.m. Trust us.
