Valentine's Day Playlist: Top 5 Songs About Love

Happy Valentine's Day everyone. Make sure you Instgram a picture of the flowers you got along with the cards and candy. A piece of advice I received from a professional photographer, turn your camera (phone) at a 45 degree angle to make a boring picture more appealing to others.

In the spirit of Valentine's Day I've compiled a list of five of my favorite songs that have the word "love" in the title. Obviously there are hundreds (thousands?) of songs with this word in the title, but 1. I don't have that kinda time and 2. I'd like you to post your faves in the comments section below.

Remember today; embrace love of all kind. Oh, and don't be a dick (I think that applies for every day, but try a little harder today). Without further ado, the five songs you've been waiting for.

1. Ace Enders and a Million Different People - "Bring Back Love"


Ace has written just about every song in his history of song-writing about love. But this one has a special place in my heart. I think you'll thoroughly enjoy it as well.

2. John Legend - "I Love, You Love"  


Ok, look, I really like John Legend. The dude has a silky smooth voice, is a talented pianist (hehe), and has one of the cleanest cut beards known to man. But some of his songs just get too repetitive and I find it hard to get through. "I Love, You Love" is not like that. Enjoy.

3. Boyz II Men - "I'll Make Love to You"


23 Million YouTube views CAN'T be wrong, and the script and soft lighting of the video are SO 90's and quasi-porn. And the costume changes, could they possibly make anymore in a 4:19 video? Irrelevant. This song has been baby-making music since 1994 and hasn't lost steam since then. So "pour some wine, light the fire" and listen. (Editor's note: There is a incriminating video of me singing this song on a friend's phone. I hope that phone gets dropped in the toilet.)

4. The Monotones - "Book of Love"


I'm a sucker for doo-wop, soda fountain 50-60's music. I'd like to think of these guys as kind of a pre-Boyz II Men power group with their dancing and spot on harmonies.

5. The Beatles - "All You Need is Love"


How could The Beatles not make this list? Rock 'n' roll was founded on love and broken hearts. These guys are the birth of modern Rock 'n' roll (and probably experimenting with drugs) and the cry "All You Need is Love" has been shouted for generations.

Happy Valentine's Day and let us know your favorite "love" in the title songs in the comments.

I enjoy music, style, writing and my own opinion. I enjoy one of these much more than the others. Enjoying the life I've been given and always excited to learn new things, gain new experiences and meet new people.
