The Elements of a Great Love Song

Love songs that are considered to be the best of their era share many things in common. First and foremost are the lyrics. Love songs should convey love’s depth of emotion.

A love song that makes the top list for a specific year puts words to feelings that are hard to express for many but become their collective voice. Many musical artists draw upon their history to craft meaningful love song lyrics.

The tempo and rhythm of a love song can vary from genre to genre. Some songs are soft and slow while others are uptempo dance tunes. In all cases, the best love songs are those in which the music complements the romantic message that is being delivered.

Love song lists that are organized by a specific year often reflect the changing ways in which love is expressed. The most recent years will contain songs that draw upon current romantic influences.

Older love songs possess a certain nostalgia that reminds one of their first romantic love.

In our love song lists, you can find choices from the year you were born, the year you graduated, and the ones that match other important milestones

A great love song can take you back to a specific moment in time that you want to fondly remember — like a wedding anniversary
