“Crack the Shutters” by Snow Patrol
Best known for their hit “Chasing Cars,” Irish group Snow Patrol creates a
beautiful ballad in “Crack
the Shutters.” Capturing that lazy moment in the morning, the song also expresses the desire to love and care for someone — guaranteed to appeal to romantics.
“Look After You” by The Fray
With groovy, swaying songs such as “Over My Head (Cable Car)” and “How to Save a Life,” The Fray have a lot of expectations when it comes to their love songs. “Look After You,” with its grand violins, soothing piano and romantic lyrics, makes a fine love song with relaxing undertones.
“Love Song for No One” By John Mayer
As the title suggests, this song is for the true love you haven’t found yet. Perfect for the moment when you finally do find him or her. This song showcases John Mayer’s amazing musical talent as well as being a catchy tune.
“Something Beautiful” by Needtobreathe
Probably one of the most epic love songs out there, “Something Beautiful” is a high
wire balancing act between the amazing, raw vocals of Bear Rinehart, and the stellar
guitar work, creating a song that never gets old to listen to.
“Overjoyed” by Matchbox Twenty
When it comes to love songs, almost no one does it better then Matchbox Twenty. Their newest return to form, “Overjoyed,” takes you way back to the ‘90s and makes you feel good and in love. It’s almost like they never left.
“Truly Madly Deeply” by Savage Garden
Savage Garden created several love songs including “I Knew I Loved You” and “I Want You.” “Truly Madly Deeply,” however, is the perfect slow dance song, with groovy vocals and sing along lyrics. This song is almost mandatory for a love song playlist.
“Happily Ever After” by He Is We
This song takes the fairy tale ending and makes it a question: “Do I end up happy?” Rachael Taylor’s phenomenal vocals make the song the romantic anthem that it is, and if you’re looking for a great romantic song, you’d be a fool not to include it.
“Right Thru Me” by Nicki Minaj
Bizarre babbler Nicki Minaj may be unconventional, but darn it all if she can’t do a good love song. “Right Thru Me” is groovy, confessional and best of all, romantic as ever. Well done, Nicki, well done.
“Punch Drunk Love” by The Summer Set
We all need a good love song to rock along to. The Summer Set delivers on that need and makes “Punch Drunk Love” a fun anthem that will still appeal to your significant other.
