We all feel the need for romance sometimes. When we sit late at night, mostly alone, but sometimes with friends, we often remember that feeling. The butterflies in the stomach, the endless talks, the sleepless nights, many of us have experienced these memories with people.
There are many people who haven’t had these emotions yet. Those too, seek them many times.
But all of them, seek a romantic feeling in music. It is true, music has the power to express the feelings of people in many ways. Most of us view romance and love in different ways, therefore, we feel the need to listen to different romantic songs or we perceive romantic songs differently.
That is completely normal. After all, if you think about it, most artists have written and composed the songs, feeling completely different to us when we listen to them. This is the beauty of human race, the presence of diversity.
Now, let’s get to the playlist, which is probably why most of you are here. There are many songs that have caused emotional romantic feelings to me through time. I value greatly romance and love, especially because I find it fascinating how people crave human interaction that way. Of course, many species experience romantic feelings, but humans have always been dictated by hatred and, maybe, fear, towards their rivals.
So, here is the playlist:
I love the songs and the artist. Dion’s voice is powerful and emotional at the same time, therefore it has the power to move every kind of audience. She was one of my parent’s favorite artists, so she is really important to my childhood memories.
One of the most well – known love songs of all time, and if you don’t know it I suggest you give it a listen right now! It is from a movie called “The Bodyguard”. It is a cover, the original song was performed by Dolly Parton and it was released in 1973 in the country version. I grew up with the cover song, as well as many people my age, so I suggest you listen to Houston’s version, but since the song is Parton’s, you should also give her a chance. (I Will Always Love You – Dolly Parton)
How Deep Is Your Love by Calvin Harris and the Disciples will be the first song shown if you search just the title. Even though that song is great, I don’t really find it romantic, so I didn’t include it in the list. And, no, Harris’ song has nothing to do with the Bee Gees version. I absolutely love Bee Gees and their music so I suggest you listen to this song.
Now, this is a classic. Apart from the fact that you will love this song, it is also really well – known, I believe you definitely know it from somewhere, whether it’s the movies or the radio. So, give it a listen, it might be the song you’ve been looking for for so long!
Now, this is for the people who love rock n’ roll a little more. Bon Jovi is one of my favorite bands of all time and it would mean so much if you gave them a chance by listening to this song.
I love songs that show admiration and respect for women, even though not many exist out there. This song makes me feel special and it is also created by a great band that I love. I suggest you listen to it!
The Beatles are classics and they have created many legendary songs, however I couldn’t imagine them writing a romantic song until I found this one. I highly recommend it, especially to people who love rock, but can’t imagine rock n’ roll artists creating romantic songs.
I am including another Lionel Richie song because I love his work. Honestly, whenever I think of this artist, romantic songs always come to mind. It’s like he has a talent on this genre.
This is also a classic, but not so well – known, at least as far as I know. I believe that it might have been very popular when it first came out, but right now not many people listen to it. It really is a pity, because the song itself is great and I’m sure you will love it once you give it a listen.
I love that this song is gender neutral, therefore more people of different genders can relate to it. This is really important when it comes to romance. Since many people experience it in different ways, it is crucial to include as many people as possible.
Humans relations have changed through time, some would say that people became colder or less approachable to one another, but this hasn’t affected romantic interaction at all. There’s something in humans that keeps them together, something that gives them the need to interact romantically with each other.
(Keep in mind that I chose these songs based on my experience and they are not necessarily romantic to everyone. Many people may perceive them as boring or not so good, but I decided to include them because they mean something to me and my life’s experiences. Nevertheless, I’d love to read your comments on this topic and feel free to add more romantic songs that you love!)
