Sometimes there’s just nuthin like a love song, am I right?
A few years ago I came up with a list of my very favorite love songs (as well as some of the saddest) …and ya know what? I think I’d stand behind that list to this day. When it comes to giving me all the feels, nothing hits the spot like Love Me Tender or The Luckiest.
In the spirit of Valentines Day, I decided to ask some people in my life to share their favorite love songs and give a little explanation why. So here you go: songs to love from people I love…
Sarah, 31, sister + big fan of classic movies
Signed, Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder
“My first thought was Signed, Sealed, Delivered, but I was looking at the lyrics and realized that the song is…mmm…probably about a guy asking for his girl to take him back? Still, it’s a song that’s technically about love and it’s one of my faves.”
Claire, 15, high schooler + most likely to be a famous fashion blogger one day
Speechless by Dan + Shay
“It makes you feel so happy and it describes a good, wholesome, happy relationship. It really makes you want to be in love.”
Creighton, 32, boyfriend + collector of fun socks
What Do You Say to That by George Strait
“To start, the melody and chord progression is the very sound of romance. In the lyrics our narrator is understanding the depth of his love. The story told in the lyrics depict the narrator having a realization of that depth for the first time, and recognizing not only the distinction, but the uniqueness of it, then turning to the object of his affection, to ask with anticipation and a smile, the line: What do you say to that?”
Katie, 14, middle schooler + lover of PetLand
Love Story by Taylor Swift
“It’s so fun to sing to.”
Derek, 27, co-worker + podcast extraordinaire
Refuge by John Legend
“I like that it talks about how your girl is a refuge when you’re going through stuff.”
Shiloe, 24, friend + fellow Bachelor fan
Alps by Novo Armoire
“I walked down the aisle to this song. It’s the prettiest song in the world.”
Happy Valentines Day, friends!
