If it doesn't seem to fit anywhere else, this is probably the place for it.

I'm not the biggest bob dylan fan but I always like listening to 'All I Really Want To Do' from Another Side to Bob Dylan as it sort of strips away all the not-so-great reasons people want to get with eachother and has a very upbeat message compared to the rest of that pretty cynical album.

Another one is "Everyday is new" by Tanita Tikaram, from one of her more recent albums which didn't really get much attention but I love it, it feels so sunny. I think it was recorded live with the whole band which gives it that sparkly feeling.

"All of Me" by John Legend is pretty good. I also really love "Enchanted" by Taylor Swift, "Still Into You" by Paramore, and "Mirrors" by Justin Timberlake. There are so many good love songs out there! :D

"Picture in a Frame" by Tom Waits, "Twin Human Highway Flares" by the Mountain Goats, "Take a Giant Step" by The Monkees, and "You're So Square (Baby I Don't Care)" by Buddy Holly are all favorites of mine

I looooove Ingrid Michaelson's cover of "Can't Help Falling in Love." Also a sucker for Helpless from Hamilton :)

An unusual take on a love song: I just discovered "I'll Take Today" by Gary Allan, and I love it because I think it's the first song I've heard (it might be the first representation I've found in any media!) in which a person talks to his current partner about an old relationship, acknowledges that he did enjoy the old relationship and does look back on it fondly, but also firmly says that now he loves the current partner and wants to be with them.

Some others I like are "Follow You Follow Me" by Genesis, "Where Are You Going" by Dave Matthews Band, "How Your Love Makes Me Feel" by Diamond Rio, and "Sugar" by Tonic.

I'm a big musical theatre person so these might be out of fashion but "Ten Minutes Ago" and "the Sweetest Sound" from Cinderella are amazing. "I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy" from South Pacific is really cute.

Hey KittyPink,

Here are three of my favorite love songs <3:

"Layla" - Eric Clapton: This is a very passionate and heart wrenching song about unrequited love, as Clapton was in love with Patty Boyd, George Harrison's wife.

"He's My Sunny Boy" - Diana Ross and The Supremes: This one is very bubbly, and for me it seems to epitomize having a gigantic crush!

"Triad" - David Crosby/The Byrds: This one is a very mellow song about polyamory. I especially like that this song is open-minded and encourages people to go outside their comfort zone.
