Valentine’s day is coming and if you’re like us, your love language must be also music. We have made a list of our favorite romantic songs to dedicate to someone special. You can follow our playlist for more.
1. Can’t Take My Eyes Off You – Frankie Valli
We’re starting with a classic. Who wouldn’t want to dance to this song with somebody? The tune itself is almost an institution – It’s one of the most covered songs of all the time
You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off of you
You’d be like Heaven to touch
I wanna hold you so much
2. Treasure – Bruno Mars
Can you spot any similarities?
Treasure, that is what you are
Honey, you’re my golden star
You know you can make my wish come true
If you let me treasure you
3. Be my baby – The Ronettes
Another classic one by The Ronettes. It was produced by the famous producer Phil Spector and besides being one of the most romantic songs in history, is also a 60’s anthem. The song is also known for being the first one ever recorded by Cher. One of the singers that was supposed to be in the recording session didn’t appear so she joined the rest of the girls.
So won’t you, please, be my, be my baby
Be my little baby, my one and only baby
Say you’ll be my darlin’, be my, be my baby
Be my baby now, my one and only baby
4. Dilemma – Nelly & Kelly Rowland
Sometimes, even if we’re in a relationship, we can’t help but have feelings for someone else. We can’t control who we fall in love with.
No matter what I do (woo)
All I think about is you (uh-huh)
Even when I’m with my boo
Boy, you know I’m crazy over you (check it)
5. Sweater Weather – The Neighbourhood
If you’re looking for a contemporary sound to confess your love, without sounding cheesy, The Neighbourhood could be the best option. Hip-hop beat, thick bass sound, and sensual vocals. The song is also known for its link to the LGTBQ community, as a coded question to ask someone if they are bisexual, a similar case to Girl In Red.
‘Cause it’s too cold
For you here
And now, so let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater
6. These Words – Natasha Bedingfield
Sometimes we complicate things in our relationships. Natasha is here to remind us that love can be easy if we let it flow.
These words are my own
From my heart flow
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
There’s no other way
To better say
I love you, I love you, I love you
7. Happy Together – The Turtles
Another 60’s classic to express your love for someone… “Imagine me and you, I do…”
Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night, it’s only right
To think about the girl you love and hold her tight
So happy together
8. I.F.L.Y – Bazzi
Bazzi declares his love in a very unique way. The song starts with a jazzy songwriting style but breaks that pattern when Bazzi starts rapping through the beat. The song tells the story of someone that can’t remain faithful to anyone until he finds “the one”.
I guess what I’m sayin’, I guess what I’m sayin’
I guess what I’m sayin’ is, I
I fuckin’ love you
9. Build Me Up Buttercup – The Foundations
Sometimes love ain’t as easy as we want it to be 🙁 (Right, Natasha?) If your special one is on a hot-and-cold behavior, maybe you should send them this song. “Don’t build my hopes up if you’re going to bring me down again“.
Baby, baby, try to find (Hey, hey, hey)
A little time and I’ll make you happy (Hey, hey, hey)
I’ll be home, I’ll be beside the phone waiting for you
Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh
10. Ode To A Conversation Stuck In Your Throat – Del Water Gap
If you’re in a situation where you want to be exclusive but you’re unsure of the other person’s opinion, this one’s for you. A difficult but necessary conversation.
And it hits me
I don’t want anybody else touching you like I do
Like I do
