So you’re planning on popping the question? Or maybe you just want to woo and impress your lover with a few romantic nights or a really hot mixtape? Well, then head over to iTunes with your credit card in hand and start downloading because here are 100 must-have love songs that are perfect for plain old romantic nights, marriage proposal nights, or even hot date nights! If you’re shopping engagement rings right now, then hit some of the Classic love songs or ballads to add a little mood music to your proposal. Or if you’re just looking to have fun after a date, or give her a mix CD to play in her car, then don’t forget to include some pop or rock songs.
You definitely can’t pass up some of the good old-fashioned love songs that are out there. The Righteous Brother’s “Unchained Melody”, for instance, is a classic that won’t be forgotten and which was also featured in the Hollywood hit, “Ghost” starring Demi Moore. Many songs from the fifties are also wonderful for romantic evenings–from icons like Elvis and Roy Orbison. There are great slower songs that are great for quiet evenings, romantic picnics and the parks, and even cuddling and watching a movie.
If you’re in the mood to rock out with your loved one, then look no further than some of the more upbeat rock tracks that will surely inspire you to at least have fun during your romantic time spent together. Go out on a hot date, hit the bars, come back and crank up U2 or Nirvana for the after-party.
The pop songs are perfect for that mixtape and riding in the car, thinking about your loved one. There is nothing as bombastically fun and swoon-filled as The Knife’s “Heartbeats” or Bjork’s “It’s Oh So Quiet”. And Madonna’s “Crazy for You” is more than just background music, while the Hip Hop love songs are not only great for chill nights cuddling on the couch, but they’re also Hip Hop classics. Try them out for a more relaxed vibe.
Classic country music has produced some of the saddest love songs in the world, but also the sweetest. The contemporary fare included is more upbeat and crowd-pleasing. Whatever you’re looking for, there’s nothing like a little country to let her know you care.
Finally, the romantic ballads are the songs to play when you’re alone at night and, for one reason or another, can’t be together. They are the perfect songs to play when you really want someone!
