Ned’s Picks: Our Favorite Love Songs
Love is a beautiful thing. Whether you’re spending Valentine’s Day with the love of your life, dear friends or family, here’s a list of songs that best capture that perfect feeling you have whenever you’re with your people.
“I Will Always Love You” – Whitney Houston
Who doesn’t know this song? Although written by Dolly Parton, it became Whitney’s signature song and it’s easy to see why as she hits those notes you wish you could hit.
“Love Will Keep Us Together” – Captain and Tennille
This bouncy tune ranked number one on the Hot 100 for four solid weeks in 1975, and it is still a classic love song all these years later.
“Crazy Little Thing Called Love” – Queen
Freddie Mercury can do no wrong in our eyes and this song, which he wrote while soaking in a bathtub, is a perfect example. Queen gives us “hot and cold fever” when we hear this song.
“You Are The Best Thing” – Ray LaMontagne
Bring all of the horns, strings and folksy sounds. Ray LaMontagne sings a lesser known, but equally fantastic love song with “You Are The Best Thing.” Honestly, this song might be the best thing that has ever happened to us.
“Kiss Me” – Sixpence None the Richer
Hello, 90s nostalgia! We adore this song. It’s fun and romantic, and truth be told, who doesn’t want to be kissed “beneath the milky twilight”?
“Come Away With Me” – Norah Jones
Soft and reminiscent of the crooners in the past, Norah Jones is a classic love storyteller. “Come Away With Me” came into our lives in 2002 and almost 20 years later it is still one of the go-to love songs.
“Baby, I Love Your Way” – Peter Frampton
We love this song every day, but especially on Valentine’s Day. Don’t hesitate to add this song to your love song playlist.
“You Make Loving Fun” – Fleetwood Mac
Let your hair down, clad some flowy lace and dance with your sweetie while listening to Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham sing about fun loving. It’s no rumor that they make us believe in miracles.
“First Day of My Life” – Bright Eyes
We can’t have a full list without a little emo pop in the mix. Bright Eyes softly sings about the eye-opening power of falling in love. It’s soft, sweet and perfect for slow dancing in the kitchen with your lover.
“Wonderful Tonight” – Eric Clapton
What better way to end the evening than with this classic from Eric Clapton. After all, no matter what your love is wearing, they look wonderful to you. That’s the beauty of love.
