Music sometimes can be used as a powerful tool. It can be used for many purposes such as setting the mood in the right environment or training your mind to forget about a broken heart. Most people can recall a song that helps you to think of a first, lost, and rekindled love, but for the purposes of this being the LOVE month this list will focus on songs that could be the soundtrack of your love-life. Fourteen of them to be exact, in celebration of Valentines Day which is celebrated this month, just in case you forgot.
1. Joe Cocker – “You Are So Beautiful To Me”
Only because everyone always remembers how their first true love looked the first time you laid eyes on them.
2. Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway – “The Closer I Get To You”
After meeting that special someone words can’t explain those butterflies in the stomach or uncontrollable urges to smile at just the mere thought of them.
3. Minnie Riperton – “Lovin’ You”
Much like this song your growing love for the other person is a wonderful sight to but is just too annoying to bear if heard over and over again.
4. Billy Ocean – “Suddenly”
That “growing “ love you had is now full fledge “jump off the cliff” feelings for this other person, and for some reason you don’t know how it happened this fast.
5. Bryan Adams – “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You”
At this point in the relationship it’s all about that other person and you’d do anything in the world to keep it that way.
6. Norah Jones – “Come Away With Me”
When you feel the way you feel about someone right now it’s all about the quality time you spend with them. You can’t stop the feelings of just wanting to run away and escape reality, and frankly no one else matters except the person you’re in love with.
7. Percy Sledge – “When a Man Loves a Woman”
Missed appointments with friends and colleagues, late assignments, if you’re able to even focus on work at all. These are all by products of the all or nothing love you feel for that special someone.
These next four songs need no explanation at all, at some point you have to express physically that love you emotionally feel.
8. Marvin Gaye – “Let’s Get It On”
9. Boys II Men – “I’ll Make Love To You”
10. John Mayer – “Your Body Is a Wonderland”
11. Barry White – “It’s Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next To Me”
Okay, I said no explanation but you’re not making love if you don’t have at least Marvin Gaye and Barry White somewhere in your playlist. It just makes sense.
12. Celine Dion – “When I Need You”
After showing and expressing this love you now have its still amazing to you how everything has come about. Your in love, you’re happy, and everyone
knows it. It feels good to know that you’ll have someone in your corner whenever you need them.
13. Heatwave – “Always and Forever”
This is exactly how long a love like this should last, no better feeling in the world than this.
14. Sinead O’Conner – “Nothing Compares To You”
Although it’s good to feel that way, sometimes love just doesn’t last no matter what your feelings were to the relationship. If for some chance it doesn’t at least you can rest knowing that feeling of TRUE love can never be paralleled.
