Sweet Nothings | The Sound of Love

Aw, love. We all feel it. Whether it’s towards someone else, a pet or even Taco Bell, we all love someone or something. Love is like a roller coaster – it has it’s ups and downs, sometimes a few spirals or heavy drops that leave your stomach in your throat, it makes you scream and laugh and maybe even cry.  Musicians are always singing about love in some shape or form. They sing about new love, old love, broken and loss love. Music is the best way to express love, it says the words you can’t always say and, for me at least, evokes emotion that can move you in ways a card just can’t. So let’s take a look at some of my favorite love songs.

The Falling In Love Songs

Otherwise known as the honeymoon stage, where you first start learning about someone and you start to fall in love with them. You smile like an idiot and get the butterflies in your stomach. “Real Love” by Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne captures that feeling. The upbeat tempo of the song mixed with Glynne’s emotional yet strong vocals carries this song straight into new lover’s hearts everywhere. Other favorites include:

  • I Would Do Anything for You – Foster The People
  • Truly Madly Deeply – Savage Garden
  • Just Like Heaven – The Cure
  • First Time – Lifehouse

 

The “We’ve Been Dating For A While but I Still Like You” Songs

These are the songs that we listen to when we’re a few months – maybe even years – deep into a relationship but when you’re binge watching Netflix and look over at them, you still get a little gooney about them. My personal – and obvious – favorite song for this is “Still Want You” by Brandon Flowers. His instrumental song filled with lyrics expressing his love even through troubled times makes you swoon because you can tell, he still wants you. Other favorites include:

  • Still Into You – Paramore
  • All About You – McFly
  • More Than Love – Extreme
  • All The Small Things – Blink 182

 

The Sexy Love Songs

These are the songs you put on when you’re feeling yourself. “Body Say” by Demi Lovato came at me this year and slapped me in the face it was more sexy than I expected it to be. I mean, she’s basically talking about her body controlling the action happening in the bedroom – and I ain’t mad about it. Her husky voice with the sexy lyrics and music let’s you know she’s not messing around and you best listen up to what she wants. Other favorites include:

  • Shape of You – Ed Sheeran
  • Love Myself – Hailee Steinfeld
  • Versace on the Floor – Bruno Mars
  • Desire – Years & Years

 

And lastly, Heartbreak Love Songs

The not so fun part of love can be heartbreak; it’s all a gamble we take. “Pictures of You” by The Cure will always make me feel some sort of way that makes my heart ache. Robert Smith’s voice was basically meant to sing sad songs and it doesn’t fail in this song, talking about losing the one you love and thinking back on the things you could have done differently. We all go through that with a break up, reminiscing on the past and even looking at pictures with that person, wishing it hadn’t ended. Other favorites include:

  • Was It Something I Said – OMD
  • Somebody Else – The 1975
  • Don’t Go Away – Oasis
  • Love Stinks – The Wedding Singer

 

Love comes and it goes, it catches us when we least expect it and leaves far too soon. But each time is new – it’s different and exciting. And while the people or things might come and go, these songs will always be there, waiting for you to play them when the time is right.
