Sometimes, just playing a song for that special someone isn’t enough, and you need to step up to the microphone just to convey how much and how deeply you care. Here are the top 8 romantic songs to sing to your boyfriend.
(I’ve Had) The Time of my Life by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warner This is best known for its use in the climactic dance of the romantic movie Dirty Dancing, but it makes a fantastic song to sing to your special someone as well. If you can get him to join you on stage, make it a duet!
Love Shack by The B-52’s This is more of a silly song than a romantic one, but it can be a great way to break the ice and get everyone on their feet and dancing. It’s silly, it’s sweet, and it’s one of the best songs for bringing a smile to everyone’s faces.
XO by Beyonce No one can compete with Queen Bey when it comes to beautiful heartfelt lyrics. This is a sweet song that perfectly conveys how you can carry your love, even after they’ve turned the lights out. Her lyrics are perfect, and the song is fairly easy to sing, making it a popular karaoke choice.
She Keeps Me Warm by Mary Lambert Most music listeners have heart part of this song in Maklemore’s “Same Love”, but the full version of the song is just as amazing. It is the perfect track to convey how much you love him, and if you’re using it as a romantic song to sing to your boyfriend, it is very easy to change the lyrics from “she” to “he.”
400 Lux by Lorde Lorde is quickly becoming a pop sensation for her unique perspective on the things that most of us take for granted. The lyrics are filled with all of the little idiosyncrasies that you notice and adore after you’ve been with someone for a long time. It’s also a lot easier to sing than some of her other tracks.
