Romantic love songs we adore
1. Golden Hour – Jvke
We couldn’t stop playing this TikTok fave even if we wanted to. Jvke takes this love song quite literally in his Golden Hour music video by covering himself in gold glitter. He sings about the love of his life, speaking sweet nothings of her to an imaginary audience. The combination of the piano and violin melodies along with his adoring lyrics convey a passion so sweet you can’t help but belt out with him.
2. Sway – Michael Buble
This classic love song is a timeless classic. With Michael Buble’s smooth, crooning voice and romantic lyrics, it’ll set the mood for when you wine and dine your lover. The Latin-inspired rhythm is the perfect background for slow dancing, too. Go ahead and create unforgettable memories with your special someone!
3. Valentine – Jim Brickman feat. Martina McBride
Classic, classic, classic! The lyrics, the melody and the title of this 1997 song easily make it our top track when we’re thinking romance. And in case you didn’t know, Australian singer Olivia Newton-John also has her own take on this tune.
4. Ribbon in the Sky – Stevie Wonder
One of the greatest songwriters of all time, Stevie opens the ditty by saying he’s been praying for the moment his path crosses with that special someone. Surely, that’s something your soulmate would love to hear.
5. Thank God I Found You – Mariah Carey, Joe and 98 Degrees
This melody led by Mariah Carey (aka the queen of our hearts) waxes lyrical about being grateful for finding “The One”. It’s all about sunshine after those dark days, and we’re so here for it.
6. Just The Way You Are – Bruno Mars
How about telling your partner how amazing they are by just being themselves? We’d say this is one of the best compliments a person could ever receive.
7. I Love You – Celine Dion
Now, it doesn’t get more straightforward than having these powerful little words as the title of the song. We could listen to Celine belting it out all day!
8. At Last – Etta James
If you want something a tad more old school, why not blast this classic from blues legend Etta James? The iconic song was also covered by Beyoncé, who performed it at the inaugural ball where former US President Barack and Michelle Obama slow danced.
9. Perfect – Ed Sheeran
For the modern lovebirds among us, this good old wedding favourite from love song guru Ed Sheeran will do the trick.
10. Angel of Mine – Monica
Oh, to be so in love with someone that you think they’re sent down from heaven. This number perfectly nails that feeling!
11. Everyday I Love You – Boyzone
If you grew up in the boy band era, this tune will surely ring a bell. To make things more magical, you’ll be serenaded not by one, but five charming Irish crooners.
12. Unless It’s With You – Christina Aguilera
“I don’t want to get married unless it’s with you”, Xtina sings on this track. It’s a sweet song about tying the knot in the most meaningful way.
13. All My Life – K-Ci & JoJo
Who loves a classic 90s R&B jam? We sure do. Go ahead and profess to your partner that you’ve been waiting for someone like them all your life!
14. Love Story – Taylor Swift
For fans of old school country Taylor, perhaps you’d like a throwback to this sugary song that references Romeo and Juliet.
15. This I Promise You – *NSYNC
If you’re the kind of lover who makes promises and keeps them, this ballad is for you. Just don’t mind the cheesy video of these five guys swearing their love in the middle of the forest.
16. Wonderful Tonight – Eric Clapton
Gentlemen, don’t forget to tell your ladies that they look wonderful on this special night (and every night, tbh).
17. I’ll Make Love To You – Boyz II Men
In the mood for some sexy time? This titillating tune is the original Versace on the Floor.
18. Hold on – Chord Overstreet
This underrated song is about the fear of losing the person you love – come heaven or high water, you want them next to you. Its tragically beautiful tune accompanied by hard-hitting lyrics is the perfect pick to win your loved one back.
19. Sweet – Cigarettes After Sex
Lead singer Greg Gonzalez is known for his sultry, dream-like voice and it arguably sounds the best in this number where he croons about how he’d gladly break his heart for his significant other. The descriptions of her body and wanting to run his fingers through her hair are sure to make your lady blush if you dedicate this to her.
We hope you enjoyed our collection of sentimental songs. Happy Valentine’s Day!
