February is the month of LOVE with Valentine’s Day at it’s heart, so I decided to make a playlist of my favourite Love songs to share with you. There are so many songs out there that people automatically associate with love and if you search for love themed playlists you often see the same one’s appearing every time. My selection is personal to me and the songs all have an association or meaning in my life and have been chosen for that reason.
I think any song could become a love song depending on the personal experience that is attached to it. There are some songs that just have that ability to transport you back to a certain time, place or situation in the first couples of bars, music is magical in that way and everyone’s experience of it different.
I decided to choose my top 14 songs in honour of the 14th February and believe me it was much more difficult than I originally thought to whittle them down!
(Your love keeps lifting me) Higher and Higher by Jackie Wilson
Love is an Open Door by Kristen Bell & Santino Fontana (Frozen Soundtrack)
You’re the First, the Last, My Everything by Barry White
Iris by The Goo Goo Dolls
Back for Good by Take That
You Can’t Hurry Love by Phil Collins
I Just Called To Say I Love You by Stevie Wonder
When You Say Nothing AT All by Ronan Keating
All of Me by Collabro
(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life by Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes
To Be With You by Mr. Big
That’s My Goal by Shayne Ward
Can’t Help Falling In Love by Elvia Presley
Heaven (Candlelight Mix) by DJ Sammy
As I have said they all have a special meaning in my life, however the last three are the most special. That’s My Goal was our first dance at our wedding and the lyrics are so apt for our love story. Heaven was the song I walked down the aisle to and Can’t Help Falling In Love was played during the signing of the register after we were married. Just hearing these songs puts a (good) lump in my throat and transports me back to our special day.
I would love to know your favourite Love Songs, leave me a note in the comments.
