HERE ARE SOME CLASSIC OL’ LOVE SONGS FOR YOU!

Love Me Tender - Elvis Presley

Love me tender, love me sweet

Never let me go

You have made my life complete

And I love you so

Is there anything better than Elvis’s melodious voice, serenading you on this day of love?

La vie en rose- Louis Armstrong

When you kiss me heaven sighs

And tho I close my eyes

I see la vie en rose

See life in pink with this classic love song.

Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper

If you're lost you can look and you will find me

Time after time

If you fall, I will catch you, I'll be waiting

Time after time

A song about unconditional love sang by the beautiful Cyndi Lauper.

Unchained Melody - Righteous Brothers

Oh, my love, my darling

I've hungered, for your touch

A long, lonely time

Time goes by so slowly

And time can do so much

Are you still mine?

The Righteous Brothers are making women swoon till this decade with their sultry voices.

These Arms of Mine - Ottis Redding

These arms of mine, they are yearning

Yearning from wanting you

And if you would let them hold you

Oh, how grateful I will be

Soul musician Ottis Redding perfectly depicts a man in love in this song.

Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You - Frankie Valli

You're just too good to be true

I can't take my eyes off you

You'd be like heaven to touch

I wanna hold you so much

This Grammy-nominated classic is a must listen to every Valentine’s Day.

Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now - Starship

Let 'em say we're crazy, I don't care about that

Put your hand in my hand baby don't ever look back

Let the world around us just fall apart

Baby we can make it if we're heart to heart

Take on the world together with your partner as Starship did! 

Stand by Me - Ben E. King

When the night has come

And the land is dark

And the moon is the only light we'll see

No I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

Ben E. King sings about the courage a man will have when he has his darling by his side.

FOR ALL THOSE DRUNK IN LOVE, HERE ARE SOME SONG CHOICES TO ELEVATE THAT LOVE-LY FEELING:

Your Song - Elton John

If I was a sculptor, but then again no

Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show

Oh I know it's not much but it's the best I can do

My gift is my song

And this one's for you

Rocketman truly has a way of making a girl feel oh so special by gifting a song that speaks from his soul. *Sigh*

Watermelon Sugar - Harry Styles

Breathe me in, breathe me out

I don't know if I could ever go without

I'm just thinking out loud

I don't know if I could ever go without

Watermelon sugar high

One of the hottest songs on the charts right now, satiate your sweet tooth with this saucy tune this valentine’s day.

I Want to Hold Your Hand - The Beatles

Oh please, say to me

You'll let me be your man

And please, say to me

You'll let me hold your hand

This timeless love song puts new-age love songs to shame, showing love with a simple gesture of holding your lover’s hand.

Love On Top - Beyoncé

Honey honey

I can see the stars all the way from here

Can't you see the glow on the windowpane

I can feel the sun whenever you're near

Every time you touch me I just melt away

Nothing better than Beyoncé this Valentine’s Day. You can bop to this song this V-Day with your partner, your friends and even just by yourself! 

Best Part - Daniel Caesar ft. H.E.R

I know you're a star, 

Where you go I follow, No matter how far

If life is a movie ,Oh you're the best part

Fall deep in love with your partner as you listen to this melodious tune sung by the angelic Daniel Caesar and H.E.R.

Only Love - Ben Howard

Give me shelter, or show me heart

Come on love, come on love

Watch me fall apart, watch me fall apart

And I'll be yours to keep

A song dedicated to a lover surrendering to his true love.

Dermot Kennedy - Outnumbered

But there's beauty here that's yet to depart

There's still a song inside the halls in the dark

I'll come for you, if you just stay where you are

And I'll always hold your hand in the car

When you’re so in love with a person, you’d wanna explore the good and bad, and always be there for the person. This Irish musician puts his heart out on his sleeve and expresses his deep love for his lover in this song.

FRUSTRATED AT THE COMPLEXITIES OF LOVE? NO MATTER IF YOU’RE DEEP IN LOVE OR TRYING TO GET OUT OF LOVE, HERE ARE SOME SONGS FOR YOU:

Love on the Brain - Rihanna

Oh, and baby I'm fist fighting with fire

Just to get close to you

Can we burn something, babe?

And I run for miles just to get a taste

Isn’t it frustrating when you’re going back and forth in a relationship? Enjoy this powerful song for a raw emotional experience of a woman in love.

Love Stinks - J Geils Band

You love her

But she loves him

And he loves somebody else

You just can't win

From the ancient ages, love triangles would be the most complicated situation you’d find yourself in. If you are currently entangled in one, this is the perfect song for you.

Wish You Were Gay - Billie Eilish

To spare my pride

To give your lack of interest an explanation

Don't say I'm not your type

Just say that I'm not your preferred sexual orientation

It hurts when the one you love, doesn’t love you back. Maybe if there was a better explanation of the unrequited feelings, it wouldn’t hurt so bad...right?

Love Sick - Bob Dylan

You destroyed me with a smile

While I was sleeping

I'm sick of love

That I'm in the thick of it

This kind of love

I'm so sick of it

When you’re just so over the whole thing and counting hours for February 15 to arrive; this is the song for you.

UGH! WHO NEEDS A RELATIONSHIP WHEN YOU’VE GOT YOUR AWESOME SELF, AWESOME COMPANY PROVIDED BY YOUR AWESOME FRIENDS AND/OR PETS?! HERE ARE SOME SONGS FOR THOSE WHO LIKE ROCKING IT OUT SOLO!

Irreplaceable - Beyoncé

You must not know 'bout me

You must not know 'bout me

I could have another you in a minute

Matter fact he'll be here in a minute, baby

For years women have quietly put up with being cheated on and it's made us feel like trash. Then comes Beyoncé with this banger and BAM! Cheater who?

When You're Smiling - Judy Garland

When you're smilin', when you're smilin'

The whole world smiles with you

When you're laughin', oh when you're laughin'

The sun comes shinin' through

A simple smile can do wonders and change the mood of your entire day. So show off those pearly whites and smile through this day of Love!

Lizzo - Soulmate

I know I'm a queen but I don't need no crown

Look up in the mirror like damn she the one

'Cause I'm my own soulmate (Yeah, yeah)

I know how to love me (Love me)

Love that beauty in the mirror cuz she deserves it! It doesn’t matter if you gotta go solo this V-Day, cuz you got You for life and You are amazing! 

Primadonna - Marina and the Diamonds

Beauty queen on a silver screen

Living life like I'm in a dream

I know I've got a big ego

I really don't know why it's such a big deal though

We’re all made for that luxe life and we shouldn’t feel sorry to want it all. This Valentine’s day, the only validation you need is from yourself; YAS QUEEN! 

I love it! - Icona Pop

You're on a different road, I'm in the milky way

You want me down on earth, but I am up in space

You're so damn hard to please, we gotta kill this switch

You're from the '70s, but I'm a '90s b****!

This is the anthem for absolute empowerment - after a breakup and you feel stronger day by day, knowing you deserve better! Dance and jump to this iconic song this V-Day!
