All you need is love - and a romantic, butterflies-in-your-belly love song - this Valentine's Day! Here are a few of my all-time favorite love songs to add to your heart-day smooch-fest playlist. Warning: I have weird taste in music. That is all.
1. Bungalow - Scott Helman
I adore this song, truly - it's just sweet and romantic and upbeat.
2. Closer - Travis
This is the best song for the beginning of a relationship.
3. Delicate - Damien Rice
The heartache of a love that just can't be.
4. Everything's Magic - Angels & Airwaves
Another upbeat song, just as much of a whirlwind as the end of a crush, and the start of a lover.
5. Fallen for You - Sheila Nicholls
For when your crush just. doesn't. get it.
6. Banshee Song - Gob
The words of this song are so sweet, even if the video is a little... dark?
7. Bloodstream - Stateless
I don't know why this song feels so sexy to me, in a sad kind of way, but I love it.
8. Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop - Landon Pigg
Where did you meet your crush?
9. Fix You - Coldplay
Is this a love song? Maybe, maybe not. But it feels like one to me.
10. Gotta Have You - the Weepies
Oh my goodness gracious, I love this sweet song! And the fan-created video that goes with it.
11. I Must Be High - Wilco
Finally, a happy, feel-good love song!
12. I Will Follow You into the Dark - DC4C
I love the message of this song - that no matter what, we'll be together.
13. Lost Together - Blue Rodeo
An oldie, but a (very twangy) goodie.
14. Mad about You - Hooverphonic
What a good song... the lyrics tell such a familiar story!
15. No One's Gonna Love You - Band of Horses
Heck yes, this is my all-time favorite love song.
16. Pumpkin Soup - Kate Nash
What kind of relationship is this? Are you friends? More than friends?
17. Rescue Song - Mr. Little Jeans
The lyrics tell such an odd but sweet story... love at the start.
18. Save Me - Aimee Mann
From the Magnolia soundtrack, this song is so spot on, isn't it? The lyrics are just perfect.
19. Song beneath the Song - Maria Taylor
She says this isn't a love song, but it sure feels like one to me. Yeah, it's from Grey's Anatomy, but still.
20. Stole My Heart - Little & Ashley
I first heard this song in an Amazon.com commercial... it's so sweet!
