Red roses, chocolates, and extremely overpriced stuffed animals have dominated your local pharmacy store chain, which can only mean one thing: Valentine’s Day is here. Whether you will be stuffing your face with chocolates, serenading the posters on your wall or going on a date with your significant other this holiday, these songs will be creeping into the walls of your heart. Here is a list of 10 enthralling love songs to listen to on Valentine’s Day:
“Where Do I Begin” by Andy Williams
This beautiful ’70s ballad was written for the romantic-tragic-drama, Love Story. As the song progresses, the chords and the lyrics become more beautiful.
“Unchained Melody” by The Righteous Brothers
If you have seen the movie Ghost, then you are certainly familiar with this beautiful ballad. If you have never heard of this song, then be prepared for your heart to melt.
“Make You Feel My Love” by Adele
Cue the waterworks. Adele’s take on this Bob Dylan classic will bring tears to your eyes. The chords of the piano and the emotion she evokes when she sings the heartfelt lyrics will make you feel one million things at once. Personally, my favorite lyrics are:
“When the evening shadows and the stars appear / And there is no one there to dry your tears / Oh, I hold you for a million years / To make you feel my love.”
“Put Your Head On My Shoulder” by Paul Anka
This oh-so-cute doo-wop sung by Paul Anka in the late ’50s will make you want to sway back and forth with your lover, as they put their head on your shoulder.
“Still Loving You” by the Scorpions
This is hands down one of the most beautiful love songs ever written. There is so much power, so much emotion, and so much love expressed in this song.
“I Melt With You” by Modern English
It’s very likely that you have heard this 1982 bop before. This song will make you smile and dance around like no one’s watching.
“Sleep Walk” by Santo & Johnny
Although there are no lyrics to this song, it still manages to be one of the most beautiful love songs to exist. This song will bring you back to a ’50s high school prom, as you slow dance with your lover.
“Only You (And You Alone)” by The Platters
This Platters classic is simply too beautiful for words. The synchronization of beautiful vocals, along with lovely lyrics, grasps your soul in great enthrallment.
“Strangers In The Night” by Frank Sinatra
This charming classic helped Frank Sinatra climb his way back up to the charts in the mid 1960s. This song is a masterpiece.
“Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Elvis Presley
Pretty sure it would be morally wrong not to include the ultimate love song on this list of love songs.
May you have a lovely Valentine’s Day. Don’t wait around for someone to show you love — go out and buy yourself some chocolate and flowers, and listen to this playlist!
