20 Greatest Love Songs I’ve Ever Heard
Truth be told, when it comes to love songs, there are so many that have spoken to me over the years, many of them from the same artist. So this is how I’m going to do this. I’m going to try my best to refrain from putting more than two songs from the same artist on this list.
Also, there are loads of love-making songs, but none of those will be on this list. The sex we’ll save for later. There are also even more songs that are about painful love, love that is love in spite of all its ugliness. Again, those are for another list. These are pure, unadulterated, sappy, I’m so in love I could puke songs.
So without further ado, my list of the 20 Greatest Love Songs I’ve Ever Heard.
20. I Can’t Help It – Michael Jackson
Written by Stevie Wonder, this track from Michael’s Off The Wall album is one of those songs with a mellow groove that could equally get you in the mood and proclaim love. It’s a borderline love-making track; however, the lyrics are all about the spiritual journey of falling in love rather than the physical manifestation of love.
19. Dreaming Of You – Selena
This is probably on the list for sentimental reasons – it’s one of the first songs I remember falling in love with as a kid. But there’s no denying its pure romantic inclinations. The lyrics may be sugary sweet, but the emotions are absolutely real. Starting with, “Late at night when all the world is sleeping, I stay up and think of you. And I wish on a start that somewhere you are thinking of me too”, you can’t help but feel the young love pouring from this song so brilliantly wrapped in Selena’s tear-dropped voice [MV].
