So to kick things off, here's some tunes to get that lovin' feelin' regardless of whether you're coupled up or not:
Lior - This Old Love
God knows how many weddings this song has been played at as a first dance/general wedding song, but either way it's 3:07 of pure beauty. The amount of lovey-doveys feel I get from this song give me life....as does the next song....
Split Enz - Message To My Girl
This Enz classic might sound a bit cheesy, but I adore the sentiment and the sense of realism in the lyrics. Neil Finn is a fucking genius IMO. Come to think of it, so is his older brother Tim.
Josh Pyke - Love Lies
My favourite male singer crafts some beautiful songs and this IMO is one of his finest. Despite the title, lyrically this isn't entirely about love; but the chorus is and I adore the imagery in those particular lyrics.
Brooke Fraser - Without You
I'm choosing this over one of her other tunes (Arithmetic) for this post because (a) I love the honesty & self-awareness in the 2nd verse & (b) I want to give kudos to the director for depicting various types of love in the video (the bit with the lady & her prize-winning greyhounds at 2:22 ♥) Love doesn't just come in the romantic form you know!
Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros - Home
I know I mentioned this in my post about mood-boosting songs, but lyrically this is also totes appropes for February 14th too.
Opshop - One Day
Another love song with a sense of realism. If I recall correctly, the frontman wrote this song for his (at the time) fiancée...awwww!
Bic Runga - When I See You Smile
No, not a cover of the Bad English song. This one is short, but oh so sweet in every single way.
Kimbra - Love In High Places
This isn't exactly your traditional sort of love song (I'd say this is more about a spiritual love), but I'm throwing it in this list anyway because it has the desired effect and the bass work is bloody good.
Paramore - The Only Exception
This song (lyrically) proves that even the cynics & hard-of-heart can find a love to believe in & trust.
Ladi6 - Like Water
A theme for all of you who feel like you and your love are unstoppable. Enjoy Ladi6's vocals on this track because they are on FIRE!
Groove Theory - Tell Me
Because this list needs a good 90's R&B lurve song!
Adele - Make You Feel My Love
Bob Dylan may have sung this first, but IMO Adele's version is better. Controversial probably, but THERE I said it. Again, beautiful sentiment & I'm sure most of us want to find a love like the one described in the lyrics.
