20 Most Romantic Songs for the One You Love

most romantic songs

It is said that music is the language of love. Cater to your lover’s musical tastes with these really romantic songs, and get that message across!

Imagine the most romantic scene you’ve ever seen in a movie, that scene where the leading man and his lady love are looking into each other’s eyes as they close in for that picture perfect kiss… Now mute the music. Not as romantic anymore, right?

The thing with music is that it affects us so strongly and so viscerally that it evokes so many emotions within us. It uplifts us, inspires us, and in many cases, makes us feel even more in love. Now if that’s not a strong argument for injecting music into your love life, then I don’t know what is!

When it comes to relationships, music can give us a clearer understanding of how we show love. It also helps us when we’re in a bad place with our partner. And even after all that, the best way that music can affect us is very simple. It heightens our emotions. No, really. Science says so.

    Nothin’ like driving down the I-90 while blasting a little Aerosmith. Crazy hits home because I’m usually on the road and away from home, but it’s a song I know I can put on while I’m in my rig and feel like I’ve never really left. My wife and I are both in tune with each other through that song and I know she’s listening to it while I’m bringing home the bacon. It’s not the same as being with her in person, but it’s better than nothing, you know? More than enough to ward off those long, cold nights on the road that’s for sure.

    Romantic songs can speak to the one you love like When a Man Loves a Woman seem like a song that makes this type of love seem so encompassing and I love that it brings attention to a man loving a woman with everything. Romantic songs bring such fun and is a soundtrack to that memory of where we were the first time we danced. I love the that it puts me on a pedastel.

    “Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol”. This
    is the song me and my girlfriend first sang to; duet even. Every time we hear the song play anywhere, we get our phones and make a video of that random moment. I find it awesome how a song can bring so much meaning into your relationship. I feel that without music, love is empty. I’m pretty sure most couples have a song they really love and brings meaning to their relationship. It also brings nostalgia every time and may even resolve a fight you may encounter in the future.

  • Nellie

    This is a solid list of great love songs. Some bordering on extremely cheesy, while others just make you melt. “Crazy Love” by Van Morrison would probably be one of mine and my fiance’s love songs. We both love Van Morrison and he has such a way with words. We haven’t officially had a talk about what “our song” would be, but I think if I asked him, he would say something by Van Morrison.

  • awdi

    Chasing cars is the most romantic song for us on the list and it really makes us happy when we hear that song on the radio or at some place.

  • Kelly

    Omg. The best list of love songs that I have encountered in a while. All the songs are pure magical. Me and Bf love to lie down in the bed and listen to songs after a along tiring day. This helps us to feel connected. Love someone and I will follow you in the dark are the best songs one can listen with their loved ones. Whether you are new in a relationship or have a partner from years; you need to spare some time and listen to these love songs with them. Highly recommended; they will sure spark up your love life.
