Love Songs You’ll Love

You don’t have to be a romantic at heart to enjoy love songs.  But if you are… you don’t need to just wait for Valentine’s Day to spring romance – even weddings might be on the horizon for you or someone you know.

Classic, enduring love songs celebrate the range of emotions.  From new love to heartbreak, there is something for everyone.  Don’t believe me?  Come along and let’s enjoy some classic musical selections about love.  Even if you don’t envision Cupid fluttering around or hear angels singing choruses above, you’re bound to feel your heart lift a little.

I have to start with a Canadian singer songwriter (like myself!)  Celine Dion‘s global smash, “My Heart Will Go On,” continues to break hearts with its compelling lyrics and vocals that were showcased in the blockbuster movie “Titanic.”  Leading man Leonardo Di Caprio probably helped just a little bit:

Any post about love songs wouldn’t be complete without ole “blue eyes.”  Frank Sinatra really showed that he knew how to charm the ladies with “Fly Me to the Moon.”  Who wouldn’t be charmed hearing this song sung by his silky, smooth voice?

While I usually enjoy listening to the actual melody without focusing on lyrics, when it comes to this song, I have to make an exception.  Who could sing this one better than the talented Sir Paul McCartney (at the time singing with the group Wings?)

Whenever I hear “Maybe I’m Amazed,” I truly feel the same way:

Songs about love are often celebrations of seeing the world through your beloved’s vision.  80’s rocker and ambient music artist, Peter Gabriel created a smash hit that tapped such an experience with, “In Your Eyes.”  The hit was also featured on the soundtrack of “Say Anything.”

It is a charming movie, but not as stirring as its featured song:

Amazing gospel/pop singer Whitney Houston has one of the most impressive voices we’ll probably hear in our lifetime.  Her powerful song, “I will Always Love You,” propelled her to superstardom when she co-starred with Kevin Costner in The Bodyguard in 1992.

Its no wonder that the song is such a hit.  Houston’s powerful voice and heartfelt delivery have you believing that her emotions are 100% pure and genuine.  Pass a tissue, please!

Time to cue the screaming, fainting girls!  We simply have to mention Elvis Presley in a post about love songs.  When he first crooned “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” teenagers (and young women) around the world must have imagined Elvis singing directly to them.  The overwhelming emotion was regularly on display at concerts worldwide.

Once again, the enduring quality of this love song is the combination of lyrics and the personality and delivery of the artist.  Elvis could make many of us weak in the knees!

Rocker Eric Clapton has opened his heart many times in his music. Among so many wonderful songs is the classic, Wonderful Tonight.  Can you imagine your beloved singing these heartfelt lyrics to you?

So endearing and so classic!

Happy Love all year long!
