Top Ten Best Love Songs


The Top Ten

1 I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

LOVE IT! Amazing Vocals! Great Meaning! Dolly did her thing writing it, and Whitney did her thing singing it! This song messes with your heart when you listen to it!

So beautiful, it's not every day you hear a song that is so powerful and so full of emotion. Every note, every sound gives you something to think about and some sort of amazing feeling. I love, love, love, the way this song makes me feel. I've never had my heart broken because of love before. But listening to this makes my heart ache, as if I already have. And it makes me love that feeling.

Whitney houston is my idol. If she were to walk into my house right now I would get down onto my knees and start crying. She is so beautiful and I was abosolutly devastated when she dies. Whitney houston will always be in the hearts of people and she will never be forgotten. Whitney houston changed the lives of many. The sound of her angelic voice brightens my mood to the point of rejoicing. If only she were still alive...

I love this lovesong. It's about a very deep feeling which actually shouldn't be possible to describe. But Whitney did it. And I have to say, the movie is also prefect for this song and it's story.

2 God Only Knows - The Beach Boys

Poetry set to music. - truckturner

This has to be number one. Brian Wilson's arrangements are brilliant, and the lyrics are unlike most pop songs. It feels more honest to me. - Gg2000

There's not enough I could say about this song. Brian Wilsons is a genius. This song has changed my life. I've never felt so attached to something. Hearing Carl's voice along with the brilliant score composed together by Brian. From the beautiful French horn in the opening to the voices all on top of eachother fading out this has it all. Brian manages to make a song so amazing you could listen to just Carl's voice and be touched or even better listen to just the instrumental track and feel amazing g. Very few songs can capture this genius but Brian Wilson and the beach boys managed to. This song truly captures everything anyone could ever ask for about music and love. This song has been with me in the best of times and the worst of times. I love it more than anything else in my life

The best love song ever. This is one people will be listening to 100 years from now.

3 I Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Aerosmith

This song is really and truthfully beautiful! Between the incredible and emotional vocals and amazing guitar playing, I don't know how else to describe this song other than amazing! - xFadexToxNeonx3

This song honestly made me cry. It is so amazing! I love it!

This song is amazing! If I'm being honest, the first time I heard it, it made me cry. I don't even know why!

I have a hard time hearing this song, whenever I hear it play on the radio. This was the song that I always made me think of my girlfriend. She passed away though, so now it is just hard when it comes on. However, it brings back good memories though too every-time I hear it too.

4 My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion

I love this song sense I heard it it is one of my favorites. titanic was an amazing movie as well as this song that's why it should be number 1

This song is amazing... I don't know why this song is on number 11... This song should be way up in the top 5 maybe even number one... I LOVE this song It just moves me whenever I listen to it...

I think, this has become a little overrated. Although, it is a good song - Ambuj904

Fantastic song that defines love in an awesome way. Fantastic!

6 Heaven - Bryan Adams

My favorite deep beautiful should be much upper enlisted please vote. the song will live for decades and centuries. the very best piece of art from Mr Adams.

Yea I completely agree. Why is "Everything I Do" not in this list. The list is 50% incomplete without that one song. Now I have to write something cause of thi - romitvarerkar

Everything I DO no where to be seen in the list. Everything I do and heaven must be in the top 10 such epic songs great great great. Bryan Adams is the best love singer. Better than MJ Japan X and all

Most beautiful songs from him

My 6th most played song on Itunes... and out of 700 songs, that ain't half bad. Awesome song, with a good guitar - nic1997ps3

The passion of the singer in this song is unmatched

In my opinion the most heartfelt love song ever, hell, entire love ALBUM of all time!

Not only the best love song but also the best song

8 Manhattan Skyline - A-Ha

What a wonderful and sad Love song, just read the lyrics and then listen how Morten gives a soul to this words... Don't want to cry again :-(

"We sit and watch umbrellas fly
I'm trying to keep my newspaper dry
I hear myself say,
"My boat's leaving now"
... So we shake hands and cry
Now I must wave goodbye

You know
I don't want to cry again
I don't want to say goodbye
Don't wanna cry again
I don't wanna run away
I don't want to race this pain
I'll never see your face again

Oh but how
How can you say
That I didn't try...
You see things in the depths of my eyes
That my love's run dry

... So I read to myself
A chance of a lifetime to see new horizons
On the front page
A black and white picture of
Manhattan Skyline"

A-ha has the best songs ever! They are so awesome specially because Morten Harket has the most amazing voice he sounds like an angel WOW is one of the many words I would use to describe this song

I just started listening to a-ha aside from Take on Me and Crying in the Rain, and hey, this song found its way to my heart. Totally falling for a-ha, how I wish I was born in 1960's in Norway or UK, so that I have stood a chance being married to Morten Harket (a-ha's lead singer). What a voice. A-ha makes me A-ha, I finally found you!

The BEST Love Song with the lyrics and melody and Bryan's voice full of feeling and tender loving emotion. Oh my, definitely must be in #1! Love songs sung by men are always more beautiful!

9 Still Loving You - Scorpions

I was conceived with it (true story)

This is the greatest love song ever! It must be in #1, this is the best love song... - canessie

What is this song doing at #41?!?!
It deserves #1! Listen to it and you'll see this is better that those stupid Jonas Brothers or anything lmao - klausmeine

This song I am going to say to my girlfriend not because scorpions is my fovourite band but because it is the perfect song for me. I am going to sing it with my friend playing the guitar and she is going to love me and the song. If she loves me I am going to come back to this page and say that this song is the best of the best! Love you scorpions

10 Something - The Beatles

The beatles are awesome

Nothing beats Something and nothing WILL ever beat Something. George Harrison's writing and singing in this songs displays so much emotion and love, it can never be recreated. This is a song for anyone and everyone. I think it should definitely be number one.

Something is quite possibly the greatest love song ever written. It's one of those songs that becomes more compelling with every listen. Why is it so great you may ask? It's so great because of it's simplicity. It's not to specific and it's an all out declaration of love for all. Then it gets better with George delivering what may just me the most meaningful and beautiful guitar solos ever. George's masterpiece and why it isn't #1 is beyond me.

27th? really? I spent my entire life listening to songs.. no love song effected me like this one

11 Everything I Do (I Do It for You) - Bryan Adams

It is amazing! It shows how a man would fight for his girlfriend! It should be 1st place in this list!

Best love song ever made or sung! It must be in 1st place of list! Truly deserve the 1st rank!

Hey what has happened to everyone. It is the best ever love song. It shows the feeling that a guy does everything for whom he loves. Please vote it must be at least in top ten.

There's no love like your love,
And no other could give more love...
There's nowhere, unless you're there,
All the time, all the way!
Please vote for the song! It should be at top ten trust me!

12 You're Still the One - Shania Twain

Wonderful Love song. Definitely should be in the Top 10. Shania's voice is so touching, emotional and melodious. And the video for this song was just fantastic! Really Fabulous song! - Irina2932

Its the best song ever. my boyfriend sang this for me at a karaoke in goa

I'm sorry but nothing beats this... this is by far the best love song ever written and sung. The music, the voice everything. Shania is awesome and she can sing this live EXACTLY the way it sounds in the video so there's no voice editing.

What is passionate love you only knew if listen this songs.. It has to be on number 1... Love songs never made it before and no will ever make like this in long future..

15 Somebody to Love - Queen

George Michael for me!


A gorgeous song for many people

I love this classic! It made my cry into happiness. It shows lots of terrific emotion. Other than that, it's a KILLED CLASSIC, thanks to Justin Bieber. We are now on the topic of "Somebody to Love Remix". Usher did not kill the classic. Justin Bieber did. Nonetheless, I will always love Somebody to Love whether it is the original or remix (WITHOUT Justin Bieber! ) version. Usher is a very fantastic singer and could voice Sonic the Hedgehog, singing and speaking voice (both heard in the Somebody to Love music video).

17 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

I came here just to vote for this lol - Peppapigsucks

Dunno why this a love song lol - AlexZoraj

This is best song, and the only song that change my bad day to endurable one. Hello by adele, Mirro by Justin timberlake, My love by westlife, don't matter and hold my hand by akon, Helium by sia, God your mama and me by florida george line, as long you love me justin beiber, I don't want to miss a thing by aerosmith, careless whisper by G. michael, written in the star by westlife, fallen angel by chris brown, am alive and power of love by celine dion and close to you by carpenter are all great.

Love this song. Come on, One Direction higher than this? Everyone will forget about One Direction in two years the way they did this the Jonas brothers. What sets Metallica apart is how they can do heavy stuff that sounds good, and soft stuff that sounds good.

20 Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N Roses

This song deserves to be in the top 5s for sure. I will always feel free to listen to this godly song forever. It's so insanely perfect! Axl Rose (the lead singer) could voice Lucas (From the Earthbound franchise). He has such a very nice voice. This is the best song I have ever heard in my life. Go Guns N' Roses! We will forever be in your irresistibly persistent debt.

28 Romeo & Juliet - Dire Straits

A really beautiful song with nice guitar

Great, intelligent choice! Dire Straits doesn't really have many of what would be considered love songs--I guess So Far Away might be another--but this is just proof of what a talented musician and songwriter Mark Knopfler is. Two suggestions for this list that I haven't seen so far are How Can I Tell You by Cat Stevens and Love is Our Cross to Bear by John Gorka. Google them if you haven't heard them, I think you'll be glad you did.

Brings back old times for me! - Airacobra5102

Simple, Stunning and just perfect in every way. The vocals are perfect for the lyrics and the story told is so romantic. can't praise it enough!

I love this song! It's my favorite ever everyone knows me for this song!
Hey there delilah is my trade my trade mark laugh out loud

Love it!

I was listening to this song. I decided I would look up the meaning of this song, which is something I've never done before. Turns out that the song is about a girl with same last name as the girl who was the reason I was listening to the song. Fate... this song is the reason I still try.

33 Iris - Goo Goo Dolls

Much better than those cheesy love songs of nowadays. - Userguy44

This is my absolute favorite song! And it's so true once you've fallen in love... "when everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am"

I fell in love with this song so many years ago. The words just have so much emotion and a deep and powerful meaning. I never tire of listening to this work if art. The feeling I get while it plays, just is like nothing else I've ever experienced with any other song.

An absolutely amazing song that touches every part of your soul... So poetic, sad and meaningful. I think it should be the number one love song of all time as its lyrics are unique. I can listen to it over and over again... It brings on a warm smile on my face, so does it bring tears... The most beautiful love song ever!

34 A Thousand Years - Christina Perri

So beautiful, heartfelt, and simple, even if you don't like Twilight or haven't seen/read it. It took me some time to understand it, but now that I do, I love it. It's about someone who has loved someone else for 1,000 years and has been waiting for them for all that time. Even after all that long hard waiting, they would still wait a thousand more years. I heard it a lot in summer 2018, and it always made/makes me think of my crush, and even though this makes the song more sad it makes me love it more because I can relate to it. Thousand Years deserves SO much better than 38th place!

Just beautiful. Only thing I can say. Just beautiful.

It's so soothing and meaningful and perfect. It should at least be on top ten. - Richa_Rajput

35 Nothing Compares 2 U - Sinéad O'Connor

Prince's version is ten times better in my opinion - AlexZoraj

This song was written and performed by PRINCE she sang it and did not give him any credit for it on her album, sure the artist formerly known as prince writes so many songs for people but this was his song on his album.

36 Hay Amores - Shakira

Shakira's lustful voice in this song just wraps me in a blanket of warmth. I know what the lyrics mean, but if you want to then I suggest you learn Spanish. Translator sites don't translate it well, they translate it literally, not in context. But you don't even need to know what the lyrics say to understand the passion of the song. - theOpinionatedOne

I don't even speak Spanish (wish I could) but this is simply amazing!

40 Bed of Roses - Bon Jovi

This was a hard call for me because I love both this song and "Always". Both beautifully written, and so heart-felt. However, this one is still my fave BON JOVI love song.

Should be a tie between 'bed of roses' I don't wanna miss a thing' by aerosmith and 'when you say nothing at all' by ronan keating. Just irresistible. Can't stop singing along!
The song is so moving! Got addicted to it and just love it

I want to lay you down in a bed of roses
For tonight I’ll sleep on a bed of nails
Come on, Some one who is willing to lay you down in a bed of roses and is willing to sleep on a bed of nails. How is this not emotional? It needs to be ranked higher and much closer to Always.

Crazy for You is considered the best Love song from Madonna. Yes, that song is great but Cherish is even better - much more romantic! The lyrics is so sweet. So is the video!

It's not typical Madonna - you won't find any provocative lyrics or controversial videos. "Cherish" is fantastic! One of my favorite songs ever
