Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor really outdid themselves in this movie musical about an aspiring poet and a writer who falls in love with a prostitute in late 1800s France. This song, a true powerhouse of a ballad, is the culmination of their love story and a beautiful expression of forever love.

2. “Better Love” - Hozier

Hozier wrote this song for the Legend of Tarzan movie starring Alexander Skarsgård and Margot Robbie, and once again, he’s outdone himself with moving lyrics and a heartfelt backing instrumental piece. This song is a perfect choice for you and your “better love.”

3. “1000x” - Jarryd James ft. Broods

4. “Hunger” - Ross Copperman 

This is a true slow-dance song. The distinct piano melody mixed with a rhythmic pulse for the chorus makes it easy to sway along to the music, and the lyrics remind us of the all-consuming power that love has over each of us. And let's not forget how this song played in the series finale of The Vampire Diaries and had every viewer crying.
