Top 10 Love Songs

Posted by Troy on 14th February 2015 in Entertainment

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I decided I would do a list of my top 10 favorite love songs.  I will say that this was much harder than I thought.  I will also say that I didn’t add anything out of obligation (such as Unchained Melody).  Here is my list:

10 – Go Love by Mark Knopfler. The melody of this song just sucks me in.   However, granted, it’s a bit of a self-ish love long.

9 – Reason to Believe by Mason Williams or Rod Stewart. Rod has the cooler version, but Mason’s has a frank honesty that generally comes from the original artist.  This goes the other direction.  It’s about a person so in love that no matter what his lover does to him, he always looks for that reason to believe that she loves him.

8 – Signal Fire by Snow Patrol.  There’s something about this song that grabs you.  I personally think it’s the opening.  Then it turns into a really cool song.

7 – Love Song by The Cure or Adele.  I prefer Adele’s version which is slower and more heartfelt.

6 – Lord, I’m Discouraged by the Hold Steady.  This is a pure love song.  It’s not romantic.  It’s about a man loving a girl with all his heart and being unable to help her.  The last line will break your heart unless you’re made of stone.

5 – Song for a Winter’s Night by Gordon Lightfoot.  I’ve always loved this song.  I always felt it was a very honest song.  Just a man missing his girl and wishing she were there.

4- If the World Should End from the Spiderman Musical.  You might think this is an odd choice, but there is something hauntingly beautiful about the lyrics and the melody.

3 – God Only Knows by the Beach Boys.  Again, I’ve always just felt like this was one of the purest love songs ever written.

2 – Heaven Can Wait by Meatloaf.  A beautiful song with beautiful lyrics.  ”All we have is time until the end of time.”

and finally

1 – Bernadette by the Four Tops.  This is what love should be.  If you go online and read the lyrics, it sounds like a love letter.
