Creating the Perfect Valentine’s Day Playlist: 50 Great Love Songs

Every couple has their song. For my husband and I, its Eric Benet’s Never Want To Live Without You  that he sang before he proposed. We danced to it at our wedding and it still makes me smile whenever it comes on the radio. We love dancing in the kitchen or singing in the car to some of our favorite love songs—it’s a quick little way to spend time together and remind each other of our love. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, love is in the air and in the airwaves, so why not turn to music to set the mood?

If you need a playlist for romance or just a pick me up, here are 50 great songs to get you started. With a little soul, country, rock, and alternative, there’s something for everyone—feel free to dance away and let the love flow.
