“Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs,” or so the brilliant lyrics of Paul McCartney have said. Love songs are an amazing and heartfelt way to say I love you. It doesn’t matter whether you and your significant other have been together for a few weeks or a few decades, the heartstrings that these songs tug on remain the same.
Don’t know how you feel?
They say that when you fall in love, suddenly all the songs make sense. The way the notes complement the heartfelt lyrics no long sounds like a mish-mash of words and music. Instead, every love song sounds like it was written especially for you. It sounds silly but these love songs are designed to remind you that there is still a little magic left in the world, and it always appears when you realize how you feel about that special someone.
Have you ever found yourself crying over a song with no explanation as to why? We learn love first from our parents, and then later from our peers. Many people believe that love songs resonate with us at a level that’s much deeper than our understanding of the lyrics or the notes. Emotions that we feel deeply, like love and desire on the positive side, or rejection and grief on the negative, are ones that can only be learned by being experienced. Love songs appeal to that deeper side of our hearts, in many cases bypassing our minds entirely. These songs can help us to understand these emotions in a way that no other thing can.
Saying I Love You
Saying those three little words for the first time can seem nearly impossible, which is why there are so many love songs for him and love songs for her that are designed to help you do just that. These songs are the perfect way to convey your feelings to that special someone. Pick a good love song for your karaoke night and end it with your declaration of love. “I Just Called to Say I Love You” is a good moderate tempo song that can get your point across without feeling too heavy.
Winning over that special someone
So, you’ve found that special someone but you have no idea how tell him or her how you feel. You’re in luck, because playful pop love songs are a great way to say “Hey, I’m into you,” without making the object of your affection feel too pressured. There is an enormous variety of songs about crushes and young love, so you’ve got plenty of tracks to choose from.
Love Songs bring people together
While a solo act can be fantastic, the greatest thing about love songs is the unlimited potential for duets and the fact that these duets can and often do bring people together. From the innocence of “A Whole New World” from Disney’s Aladdin to the heart wrenching emotion of “Come What May” from Baz Lurhman’s heartbreaking epic Moulin Rouge, a good duet can bring that special someone close to your heart. If you sing it together, it can be so much better. There is nothing more romantic than finding someone to sing with you.
It doesn’t always have to be love songs for a good duet though. All you need to do is have fun with it. A playful duet is just as good at breaking the ice as a romantic one.
Find songs for him….
If you’re looking for a love song for your boyfriend, then you are in luck. There are easily thousands of love songs that are perfect to profess your feelings for that lucky guy. Find a song by a female singer, or find a song by an equally talented male singer that you can sing just as easily and make a cover of the song especially for him.
…or for her
There are just as many love songs for your girlfriend as there are tracks for the opposite gender. If singing isn’t your thing, put together a mix tape (or CD, or Spotify playlist) with a collection of your favorite love songs. A special playlist dedicated just to her could be just the thing to let her know how you’re feeling.
Once was lost
Love songs aren’t just for happy relationships. They can be a great tool to help you once your heart has been broken as well. You know how these words and lyrics make you feel when you’re in love, so they can help to remind you when you’re feeling down or hopeless. Don’t let the loss of a relationship make you forget the amazing feeling of letting someone into your heart.
Now am found
Use the power of a love song to bring that special someone back into your life, once a relationship has ended. Tell that special someone how much they mean to you, or that you’re sorry for something that might have torn you apart. These powerful lyrics, when used properly, can convey all the emotions that your words may not be able to express.
There are love songs for every occasion. There are songs for falling in love, for staying in love, and for falling out of love. There are songs to say I love you, songs to say I’m sorry, and amazing lyrical creations to say that I’ll love you forever. They have topped the charts around the world for as long as there have been charts, and will continue to do so as long as there are human beings who are capable of love. There is something inherently special about a song that can touch your heart, and the artists who are able to write them are something to be cherished. There is nothing more important than a good love song, and in the immortal words of The Beatles classic 1967 hit…”All you need is love, and love is all you need.”
