We always ask the tough, hard-hitting questions — this week, for a special V-Day feature, we took to the (metaphorical) streets to ask Batesies, “What’s your favorite love song?” Batesies are such romantics at heart – here the songs that make Bobcats melt: 

Everything by Michael Buble

“My 7th grade crush sent it to me and told me it was our song.” — Emily Kafka ’17

I Don’t Want To Set The World On Fire by The Ink Spots
“I don’t really have a cut and dry reason why I like it…[My girlfriend and I] both just get really gooey when it comes on.” — Noah Prince ’15
I’m Yours by Jason Mraz 
“[I] Made a video for my now girlfriend playing that song on Valentine’s Day, back when I was making moves.” — Graeme Welds ’15 
Angel by Jack Johnson 


“It’s poetic and beautiful, and he talks about his girlfriend like she lights up his world.”– Emma Katz ’17

by Kendrick Lamar 


“Just listen; you’ll understand.” — Lydia Rubenstein ’15

Come Away With Me by Norah Jones


“You know how after you take a quilt out of the dryer, wrap it around yourself, and it’s the warmest feeling ever? That’s what this song feels like.” — Bianca S. ’16

Skinny Love by Bon Iver

“It’s pretty, honest, and relatable and not a stereotypical description of love.” — Julia Grace ’17

Stacy’s Mom by Fountains of Wayne “

“I love MILFs.”– Joe Lawton ’17

Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley 

“My counselor played it for us to go to sleep at night when I was 7, and then the meaning of the song evolved and attached meaning over the course of my life.” — Max Kraus ’15

Whatever You Like by T.I.  


“It’s easy to learn all the words and jam to…Also, I wouldn’t mind a boyfriend who could buy me ‘whatever I like.'” — Sofia Elbadawi ’18 

All of Me by John Legend


“People’s imperfections are what makes them special.” — Eric Wainman ’15

Do You Love Me by The Contours

“I really like it because it’s a catchy fun classic. My boyfriend and I always sing the chorus to each other.” — Jessica P. ’16

All My Life by K-Ci and JoJo


“It’s a soothing song that shows how much they love their girl” — Gerald Nelson ’17

If There Was No You by Brandi Carlile


“It’s honest and cute, but not sappy, you know?” — Erin Cooper ’15  

My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion

“It’s just a classic.” — Sarah Stanley 

Editor’s Choices: The Gambler by Fun.

“This song is an entire lifelong love story in four minutes — not a dramatic, heartbreaking love story, but just two ordinary people who fell in love. I also just have a thing for piano music.” — Becca Carifio ’15 

Do You Realize by the Flaming Lips

“I’m going to play it at my wedding. I love it because each time I listen to it it reminds me of the finite time we have to give infinite love to all those around us. Because everyone you know, someday will die. Instead of saying all of your goodbyes, let them know you realize that life goes fast – it’s hard to make the good things last.” — Michelle Pham ’15

Becca Carifio is a senior history major at Bates College. Obsessed with coffee, scarves, videos of cute animals and polka dots. Currently trying to convince her parents that reading comic books for her thesis on Wonder Woman during World War II is worth their tuition money.
