100 Best Valentine’s Day Songs

Published on

100 greatest love songs ever

What makes a song perfect for Valentine’s Day? It’s probably different things for different people, but in most cases, it is the same thing for all of us. It’s the memories that come flooding back when we hear a special song that reminds us of someone special.

Music has the ability to date stamp our lives, sometimes so perfectly that we can remember the exact moment we first hear a song. So often the time machine takes us back to a moment involving someone special and that’s what makes love songs so personal, so intense and so timeless.

We have collected together 100 of the greatest love songs…ever – the perfect playlist for Valentine’s Day. Just take a look at our list and we think you will agree that these are the very best love songs, but possibly you think we may have left something off. We would love to hear from you about your favourite love songs.

This is the one day a year that all of us can be unashamedly romantic, nostalgic and unafraid to crank up those guilty pleasures.

Happy Valentine’s Day – the most romantic day of the year.

    No list of this nature would be complete without Rick Nelson’s “It’s Up To You”, Bob Lynd’s “Elusive Butterfly”, David Cassidy and The Partridge Family’s “It’s One Of Those Nights”, Little Anthony and The Imperials’ “Going Out Of My Head” and Stevie Wonder’s “My Cherie Amor”.

    Why would you have the Diane Shurr version of At Last, and not Etta James..that is like what President Obama did by having Beyonce sing it for him, over her.
