There’s something about a good love song that really gets the emotions going. I feel like some of the best songs are usually about a breakup or falling in love, mainly, because there’s so much emotion behind the songwriting. Now I know we’re a few months ahead of Valentine’s Day but let’s be honest, any day is a good day for love.
So I compiled 50 of my favorite love songs for anybody who wants to celebrate their love, or just celebrate loving themselves. These aren’t ranked in any order because honestly, they’re all great. I will say, there are a decent amount of classics on here that some of the younger folks may not know. If that’s the case, I encourage you to take a chance and listen to some of these “oldies” because I really think a lot of these songs still hold up. Either way, here are my top 50 love songs of all time:
- “These Arms Of Mine” – Otis Redding (1962)
One of my all-time favorite love songs from Otis Redding. His voice is one that is timeless and good for any mood, but when he sings about love you can’t help but feel it in your bones.
- “Rewrite The Stars” – Zendaya and Zac Efron (2018)
- “This I Promise You” – *Nsync (2000)
Originally written by Richard Marx, this single from the No Strings Attached album spent 13 weeks at number one on the Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart. It was a top charter on MTV’s TRL for weeks, and had every young girl in my school absolutely melting for these guys.
- “I Swear” – All-4-One (1994)
- “All Of Me” – John Legend (2013)
- “ILYM” – John K (2020)
- “Speechless” – Dan + Shay (2018)
