Since yesterday was Valentine’s Day (I like to call it Platonic Relationship Day), I thought it would be fitting to talk about some amazing love songs:

Everything Has Changed, by Taylor Swift

This is beautiful duet, and I like listening to it. I especially love the harmony.

Let’s Stay Together, by the Annie Moses Band

This song was originally performed by Al Green, but I mostly listen to the Annie Moses band version. I love this song because it talks about a lasting love, rather than a temporary emotional high. It promotes commitment even through hard times.

 

Love Story, by Taylor Swift

I listened to Love Story even before I started listening to music on my own. I like this song because in the end, the main characters find a way to work through their struggles, instead of run away from them.

I Courted a Sailor, by Kate Rusby

My voice teacher introduced me to Kate Rusby, and I’m quickly becoming addicted to her way of making simple songs excellent and interesting. This song is fascinating, and it has a happy ending.

Our Love is Here to Stay, by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong

I’ve talked about Ella and Louis in a different Earworm, so I’ll just say that I love romance that lasts for longer than a few days, or months, or years. It’s easy to get caught up in emotion of “falling in love” with someone else, but without commitment, relationships crumble. I love songs that accent long-term relationships, rather passionate feelings that will eventually fade.

 What are your favorite love songs, and why? I’d love to hear about them in the comments section!

    Could I have this dance for the rest of my life by Anne Murray. It was our wedding dance song.

      I love that song! I haven’t listened to it in a while, so I think it’s time to fire up the YouTubes!
