My Top 7 Favourite Love Songs
With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought I’d compile a list of my top 7 favourite love songs, these aren’t in order and I decided to only include one per artist but here you go:
1. I Wanna Be Yours // Arctic Monkeys
Lyrics based on the poem by John Cooper Clarke, I Wanna Be Yours is undoubtedly romantic and lovely and although Alex Turner certainly has a romantic way with words and their musical history is ridden with love songs such as 505, Reckless Serenade, Arabella, etc, I Wanna Be Yours certainly stands out.
“If you like your coffee hot, let me be your coffee pot, you call the shots babe, I just wanna be yours.”
2. Something // The Beatles
The Beatles are another band who have an overwhelmingly massive collection of beautiful love songs, but Something is for sure my favourite of the lot. It’s not just the lyrics, but the song has a stunning serenading tune throughout it.
“Something in the way she moves attracts me like no other lover.”
3. Thank You // Led Zeppelin
I can honestly say this song has blown me away so much that it’s made me cry (more times that I’d like to admit.) I could hardly pick a favourite lyric because it’s literally a plethora and beautiful, romantic lines.
“If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you, if mountains crumbled to the sea, there would still be you and me.”
4. She Is Love // Oasis
One of the loveliest Oasis songs out there, in my opinion, She Is Love off Heathen Chemistry and soft and acoustic and sweet and with Noel singing it, it makes quite the contrast with the typical Liam-singing fooking-ave-it Oasis song.
“I don’t know where you’ve come from, no I haven’t got a clue, all I know is I’m in love with someone who loves me too.”
5. Toothpaste Kisses // The Maccabees
Light-hearted, gentle, this song is uplifting in a subtle way from the beautiful romantic lyrics. Probably the cutest love song out there.
“Lay with me, I’ll lay with you, we’ll do the things that lovers do, put the stars in our eyes.”
6. She Changes The Weather // Swim Deep
This song is lovely, soft and puts a slightly different spin on typical love songs by making the whole theme a lot more metaphoric. Goes perfectly with Austin’s voice.
“She takes my time, but I don’t mind she makes me feel like, like I can see for miles.”
7. Lovesick // Peace
This song is uplifting and fun and not as deep and soft as regular love songs. Really fun live as well.
“I don’t wanna go to school, I don’t wanna take the call, I just wanna be a fool and get lovesick with you.”
