Love Songs for Your Valentine’s Playlist

The day of love is almost upon us! There’s no way to celebrate a holiday than making a perfectly curated playlist. Here’s a little inspiration to get you started on yours!


Ben Rector – Brand New


This is one of my all-time favorite love songs. It describes the feeling of love when it’s fresh and new, and all the hope associated with that. It’s unique and special and makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud


No list of love songs would be complete without some Ed Sheeran. He is the modern master of love songs, and listening to just a verse of this will make you want to fall in love for the first time or all over again.

If you like this you might like… Perfect Duet (ft. Beyoncé), Fall, Hearts Don’t Break Around Here (all by Ed Sheeran)



Mandy Moore & Zachary Levi – I See the Light


For all you Disney lovers out there… This is hands down the most romantic song from any Disney movie. “All at once everything is different, now that I see you”? Bring on the water works!

If you like this you might like… Whole New World (Aladdin), Once Upon A Dream (Sleeping Beauty), So This is Love (Cinderella)



Lifehouse – You and Me


This song gets me every. single. time. The idea of time stopping when you’re with the person you love makes me swoon. The early 2000s were a fabulous time for hyper-romantic songs.

If you like this you might like… Fallin’ (Alicia Keys), She Will Be Loved (Maroon 5), First Day of My Life (Bright Eyes)



Marc Cohn – True Companion


This was my parents wedding song, so no other song makes me think of love more than this one. There’s not much else in the world we can ask for from someone than to be our true companion. I hope you all get to spend your Valentine’s Day with yours.

If you like this you might like… Have I Told You Lately (Rod Stewart), Book of Love (Peter Gabriel), Time After Time (Cyndi Lauper)


I hope all your Valentine’s Days are filled with heartfelt music and love!
