Butterflies in your stomach, a happy, swoony feeling… Love songs give me those feelings all the time.

Falling in love with a song is one of the greatest things. That feeling you get when you first hear a song you absolutely love is indescribable. It’s falling in love with the feeling of love, even if that sounds kind of crazy. And love songs specifically give me that feeling over and over again.

I am the kind of person who listens to A LOT of love songs (sometimes sad love songs) and sometimes I get teased for my very weird mixed music preference. The lyrics are what speaks to me, and in my opinion, the 90s and early 00s, and country songs, have the best lyrics. Okay, sometimes modern day music has good lyrics too. But just sometimes 😉

So with Valentine’s Day around the corner, I thought it would be time to put those songs in a list! There are so many to choose from, but – with a little help from my sister – I’ve narrowed it down to 14.

My top 14 love songs (in no particular order):

1. Florida Georgia Line – H.O.L.Y

Because of the lyric: You made the brightest days from the darkest nights

2. One Direction – Little Things

Because of the lyric: If I let you know I’m here for you, maybe you’ll love yourself like I love you

3. Jason Mraz – I Won’t Give Up

Because of the lyric: I won’t give up on us, even if the skies get rough

4. Rachel Platten – Stand By You

Because of the lyric: If your wings are broken, borrow mine ’til yours can open too
