Playlist: Love Songs

Let’s face it, we can’t really talk about love without talking about some of our favorite love songs! We all have them, those songs we listen to that make our heart skip a beat… They bring to mind loved ones, feelings, and experiences that we treasure.  There are so many amazing love songs out there but here’s a little collection of some favorites, both new and old. Tell us your favorite love songs in the comments!

  1. THRILLED to see The Avett Brothers on here… I knew Free People and I were soulmates for life. But “I and Love and You” is definitely not a good “love song.” I’d replace that choice with “February Seven” by the bros.

    “Belly Full” – Dave Matthews Band
    “Kiss Me” – Ed Sheeran
    “Such Great Heights” – Iron and Wine
    “Gray or Blue” – Jaymay
    “Forever” – Ben Harper
    “First Day of My Life” – Bright Eyes

  2. January wedding- the avett brothers
    A case of you- James Blake

    Totally make me happy and soothe my little soul

  3. Really good list.. I would add these:

    Dear True Love – Sleeping at Last
    Your Guardian Angel – The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

  4. Love this playlist <3
    Here is a few that I would add:
    Just Like Heaven – The Cure
    God Only Knows – Beach Boys
    Nothing But Our Love – Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

  5. “I love how you love me” – Neutral Milk Hotel
    Phil Spector wrote this song for The Paris SIsters to sing originally, and it melts my heart

  6. Yeah, I definitely have a February playlist entitled “What time is it? IT’S VALUMTIMES!” and there are no less than forty songs on it. I’m not gonna type it all out for you cause that’s insane, but a few highlights:
    “Mondegreen” -Yeasayer
    “Bad Bad Love” -Alexander Ebert (this is the guy from Edward Sharpe, his solo album is amazing_
    “Been So Long” -Vetiver
    “Blue Angel” -The Love Language <—these guys are friends, help make them famous!
    "You Are The Blood" -Sufjan Stevens
    "Corinna" -Taj Mahal
    "Hysteric (acoustic)" -Yeah Yeah Yeahs
    "Dirty Hands" -The Black Lips
    "Everlasting Light" -The Black Keys
    …and because no love playlist is complete without one sad bastard song….
    "Alone, Jealous and Stoned" -The Secret Machines

    You should know my endorsement is essentially a guarantee.

  7. I love some tearjerkering love songs, but my favorite type of love songs are the exquisitely beautiful ones that just take your breathe away and make you at peace.

    to list a few of my favorites:
    –The Devil’s Tears by Angus and Julia Stone…actually all of their songs are fantastic and soul touching. Big Jet Plane is my second favorite love song of mine by them.
    –Trains by Porcupine Tree. Another beautiful song by them is Lazarus.
    –Eyes by Rogue Wave
    –Soul Meets Body, Transatlanticism, I Will Follow You Into The Dark by Death Cab for Cutie…lets face it, Ben Gibbard is a heartthrob in knowing how to enchant a women. Every lyric he sings expresses so much of himself and how he feels, it takes me aback.
    –Honey and the Moon by Joseph Arthur
    –Nothing Like You and I by The Perishers
    –Out Loud or Carry You by Dispatch
    –Indian Moon by State Radio
    –No One’s Gonna Love You by Band of Horses

  8. I know this is a very “of-the-moment” band right now, but Rhye’s new album Woman would satisfy any diehard romantic. Furthermore, Nick Cave’s new record “Push the Sky Away” is an alternative to lovey dovey types, but Romantic all the same.

  9. …not sure what the song is actually called but I think it might be “The only one” (Angus sings it) by Angus and Julia Stone. This is the ultimate love song….
    It goes: “I am yours, you are mine…. let’s not fuck around…. you are the only one” , his voice is so haunting and full of emotion.

  10. Hello there! This article couldn’t be written any better! Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I most certainly will forward this information to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
