, , , , ,

Hey Soonlywed,

Being romcom queen I am, I wanted to share 15 of my favorite love songs with you. Most are oldies but goodies, some new, some rock and some country! Leave a comment below with your favorite love songs, and what song you chose for your first dance!

These songs are in no particular order, I love them all equally… Doesn’t that sound just like something your parents would say about you and your siblings? HA, it’s the truth!!

Some of my favorite Love Songs… Light a candle, drink some wine, and enter the love zone.

1. “LOVE.” by Kendrick Lamar feat. Zacari 

I first heard this song in Hawaii at a wedding go figure, and I loved it! I think it’s the perfect slower song for a wedding reception. It’s not super slow to where it could kill the dance party when it comes on but gives everyone time to remember why they are there.

2. “Perfect Duet” by Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé

If you thought Thinking out Loud was romantic, Perfect Duet is next-level romance. Ed Sheeran’s songwriting skills with Queen Bey’s soulful range this song is GOLD.

3. “Best Part” by H.E.R feat. Daniel Caesar

Now if I am being honest, I could listen to Daniel Caesar all day! If you have never heard this song before and you are looking for the perfect first dance song, go listen to this one right now! Every time this song comes on I make my boyfriend dance with me… It’s the best part of my day (pun intended)

4. “Get You” by Daniel Caesar 

I told you its an obsession at this point! Like “Best Part”, “Get You” is a great love song that would be great on your wedding playlist. This song would be a great prelude song at your ceremony or a great first dance song. Again, if you’re sleeping on Daniel Caesar, go check him out right now!

5. “Caramelo Duro” by Miguel feat. Kali Uchis

This song is song predominantly in Spanish (no, I’m not bilingual) but I know a love song when I hear it, and it’s Miguel!

6. “Sweet Creature” by Harry Styles

Even though my love affair for boy bands did not include One Direction (90’s kid), I do enjoy this song by Harry Styles. This acoustic love song is about the rough patches of in relationships and living through them.

7. “Touching Heaven” by JOHNNYSWIM

If you haven’t heard this song from JOHNNYSWIM, you need to! This Husband and Wife duo are all things romance & tenderness…. Oh, and they can Sing!

8. “Remedy” Adele 

My bestie in my head Adele needs no introduction. “Remedy” is a sweet love song that would make a great first dance song or processional song.

9. “Move you” Kelly Clarkson 

Have you heard this song? I get chills every time I hear it. It’s one of those songs that makes “I love you” more than just words you speak and turn them into actions.

10. “Die for you” Beyonce

All hail Queen Bey.

11. “You Send Me” by Sam Cooke 

This song is a Sam Cooke CLASSIC an Oldie but Goodie for sure!

12. “Holding on to you” by Miranda Lambert 

The vulnerability and tenderness in this song is what every great love song posses. “Holding on to you” is another great love song.

13. Prototype by Kevin Ross

This is new to me song that I currently have on repeat! If you haven’t heard it before do yourself a favor and go give it a listen.

14. “Tennessee Whiskey” by Chris Stapleton

Fact: Chris Stapleton, could sing the Alphabet and it would sound like the sweetest love song.

15. “You and I” by John Legend 

What’s a list of Love songs without John Legend? Not much… John Legend has so many great love songs but “You and I” is one of my all-time favorites.

I hope this list brought music to your ears! Leave your favorite love song in the comments below.
