With Valentine’s Day approaching, maybe you’re planning to serenade your partner to show them how much you love them. Or perhaps you have something more extravagant planned for a proposal or anniversary. Or maybe you’re just a hopeless romantic and want to create a playlist of all the best love songs out there in the world. Either way, please keep reading for our top 10 romantic songs (in no particular order) that you need to get listening and singing to now.
Love Story – Taylor Swift
‘Love Story’ is an old Taylor song from back when her hair was long and wavy, and her music still had a country twang to it. Inspired by the Shakesperean play ‘Romeo and Juliet’, this song is reminiscent of the young teenage love of our more youthful days. Whether your love is ‘forbidden’ or not, this song speaks about wanting what you can’t have and finally being able to celebrate your love for one another.
Can’t Help Falling in Love – Elvis Presley
There’s nothing quite like Elvis Presley to make us feel weak in the knees. And this song of his is so admired and romantic. Many artists have covered it, including Bob Dylan! It’s about not having the willpower to stop your feelings for someone; no matter how much you try to fight them, you won’t be able to change how you feel.
I Wanna Dance With Somebody – Whitney Houston
Want to sing something more upbeat but still deeply romantic? Look no further than Whitney Houston’s ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’. It’s perfect for singing to that person you want to feel the heat with and getting a boogie on during date night at home.
Crazy in Love – Beyonce ft Jay Z
This husband-wife duo has created an outstanding dance track with ‘Crazy in Love’, and it is so widely favoured by Beyonce fans that a special, slower and sensual version was remixed. Whichever version is your favourite, both songs are deeply romantic and fun to sing. It’s all about the effect that love has on you – uncontrollable.
Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Queen
With hits like ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘Another One Bites the Dust’, it might be hard for some to imagine Queen creating a love song to rival legends like Elvis Presley. But they did – and we have to have an honourable mention to ‘Somebody to Love’ too! This is a great tune for you to get a boogie on while singing – it’s all about the highs of falling in love!
I Will Always Love You – Whitney Houston
Whitney is the queen of romantic songs, so we couldn’t end this list without more than one mention of her fantastic musical creations. ‘I Will Always Love You’ is iconic, and many of us belt out the chorus from the heart when it plays on the radio. This song is about accepting that you can’t be with someone, but still feeling very deeply about them nonetheless.
How Deep Is Your Love – Bee Gees
From the very first line of this song, we are sent into a dreamy haze, picturing our own love life flash before us. The Bee Gees do not disappoint with this romantic track that is perfect as background music for your date night at home. It’s an upbeat tune that asks the question of how somebody feels about you!
We Found Love – Rihanna ft Calvin Harris
While your mum and dad might not appreciate Rihanna and Calvin Harris, the younger couples in love will be able to relate and enjoy this song. This dance track has everything from the perfect lyrics to Rihanna’s melodic voice – so why not try giving it a go yourself?
God Only Knows – The Beach Boys
Now here’s a song your whole family will enjoy. Injected with romance, The Beach Boys have created a time-defying love song which is sure to be in top ten lists for decades to come. It’s all about a how much your life has changed since you’ve fallen in love.
At Last – Etta James
Now, we said this list was in no particular order, but it seems perfect to end it with what most people argue is the most romantic song of all time. Etta James grabs us straight at the heart with ‘At Last’ and doesn’t let go until the very last note. If you’ve never heard of this song, get online and listen now – you’ll be sure to be in love by the end.
Joining a Choir

Joining a choir can give you the confidence boost and added practice that you need to belt out these tunes to the best of your ability.
