What's the Definition of Love? These Songs Explain It Perfectly ...

By Holly

Whether you've been single forever or are currently head over heels in love, it's difficult to explain the feeling. When you're crazy about someone, your emotions are so strong that it's almost impossible to put them into words. Of course, that's why we listen to musicians. They use their lyrics and instruments to say what most of us struggle to explain. So if you're wondering what love really feels like, here are some songs that try to explain it:

1 Love Will Keep You up All Night by Backstreet Boys

When you genuinely love someone, you won't be able to stop thinking about them. They'll always be on your mind, and if you ever get into an argument with them, you'll be up all night thinking about how to fix it. There will even be nights when things are perfectly peaceful, but you'll be up all night anyway, thinking about how lucky you are to be with such an amazing specimen.

2 Love is an Open Door from Frozen

Even though Hans didn't mean any of the things he said in this song, the lyrics explain love perfectly. When you have feelings for someone, the world becomes a land of opportunities. You feel like you can accomplish anything. It just makes you happy to be alive, even on the most boringly bland day.

3 The Power of Love by Huey Lewis and the News

You've probably heard this song in Back to the Future. It's all about how bizarre love can be: "First time you feel it, it might make you sad. Next time you feel it it might make you mad." Love is different for everyone, and this song proves it. Of course, no matter what love does to you, it's a powerful force.

4 You, You, You by Julianne Hough

You'll do some crazy things when you're in love. Like Julianna says, she'd do anything in order to be with the man she loves: "I'd jump off a cliff, just to kiss your pretty lips." When you like someone, you just don't care what you have to do in order to be with them. You'll sacrifice everything you have for a moment of their time.

5 Everything I do, I do for You

This song claims that love is worth dying for. Why? Well, because everything this woman does, she does it for the love of her life. It's why she believes she exists.

6 I Love You by Avril Lavigne

In this song, Avril lists all of the things that she adores about her man, like his smile and the way that he dresses. However, those little material things aren't why she loves him. She loves him, because they've been through a lot together. He's her man, and he makes her feel a way that no one else can.

7 Every Little Thing She Does is Magic by the Police

When you're in love, you like every little thing about your partner. It doesn't matter if all your friends claim your boyfriend is a jerk, because you only see his positive traits. That's what this song is about. There's just nothing negative about the person you love.

Love is a funny thing. It's hard to explain, but one thing is obvious--it's a powerful force that anyone would be fortunate to feel. What song do you think describes love the best?
