13 Love Songs for Valentine's Day ...


Of all the things I've done for my husband in the nine years we've been married, about two-thirds of them have involved finding the best love songs for Valentine's Day.

I can't sing or play an instrument to save my life, but there's just something about the right music that can set the mood for pretty much anything you want to do.

To that end, here are some of my favorite love songs for Valentine's Day.

I've tried to cross different genres, but some are more appropriate than others.

1. To Make You Feel My Love-Various

Since this song has been β€œcovered” so many times-Billy Joel, Adele, Garth Brooks are just a few-many of us wouldn't know that it was written by none other than Bob Dylan.2

Whoever sings it, it's one of the best love songs for Valentine's Day I've ever heard.

Come on, I dare you to listen to it all the way through without tearing up.

I'm getting misty just writing this.

2. I Will Always Love You-Various

I know this was also on the breakup song list, but I'm putting it here because it shows another side of true love-wanting your partner to have the best in life, even if it's not with you.

It takes a very strong mind and heart to be willing to let someone you love go like this.

3. In Your Eyes-Peter Gabriel

A college boyfriend played this song outside my dorm like that scene in β€œSay Anything.” No lie.

It was the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for me, both the gesture and the song.

4. Far Away-Nickelback

I know this band gets a lot of hate, although I'm really not sure why.

Regardless of what you've heard about them, this is an incredible song.

5. I'd Die without You-P.M. Dawn

This is probably one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard, both in music and in words.

I'd quote you a few lines, but I honestly can't decide which ones I like the best.

You'll have to look it up;

when you do, be sure to have a box of tissues handy.
