So many artists have written songs about love in so many different genres, over so many years, that it would be all but impossible to compile a blog post to accurately reflect this. There is love songs for those special first few dates, love songs about losing someone you love, and so on and so forth. So instead of attempting to capture all, here is a list of my favorites:
- Alternative Rock – Weezer – El Scorcho
I am yet to hear a better song that really captures those feelings of really liking someone and asking and hoping for that first date. If you haven’t heard this song before, make sure to listen from start to finish before making a decision as it gets even better towards the end.
- Alternative Rock – Ash – Shining Light
This song is Ash’s biggest selling single to date and possibly my favorite song about love. To me, the lyrics are perfect for telling a loved one how you feel about them, especially if you feel quite a strong connection towards them. The girl that this was written for is very lucky.
- Electronica – Lamb – Gorecki
As this song is now quite a few years old, I had not heard it for ages. Listening to it, I was surprised to find it was as moving as ever. This is not as up-beat as most other songs I choose these days, which can be considered a good thing. Either way, the vocals and drum beat combine to create an incredible sound.
- Alternative Rock – Unwritten Law – Cailin
This song was written by Scott Russo for his daughter, Cailin. It is a very sweet song with touching lyrics.
- Electronica – Dan Black – U + Me
This is the latest addition to my list of favorite songs about love. With such a great sound and other songs such as Symphonies, Dan Black is going to be big.
- Australian Punk Rock – One Dollar Short – Satellite
A song about remembering your high school love that you are still in love with, missing them and wishing they were right here by your side side, and wondering if you will ever see them again.
- Piano Rock – Ben Folds – Luckiest
Great song for anyone coming out of a relationship that just didn’t work out into one that was a lot more promising.
