Fourteen Love songs for Valentine’s Day

by Jessica Gregory

With Valentine’s Day approaching fast, it’s important to remember who we love. What better way to do that than with love songs? I asked around the Barnard community so I could give you a list of good love songs to play on this Valentine’s Day.

Here”s fourteen(ish) of the songs people love:

1. “Weather” by Novo Amor: It’s a sadder, sensitive song meant to make you, in the words of the one who suggested it “feel the feelz”.

2. “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” by Elton John: How can you go wrong with Lion King? This song is a sweet one worthy of every Valentine’s celebration.

3. “You’re The Reason I Come Home” by Ron Pope: This song is “sleepy and relaxing”, singing of deep love without being depressing.

4. “Come to Me” by the Goo Goo Dolls: This is an upbeat, uplifting song without all the sap!

5. “We Are Love” by Il Volo: This song is deeply passionate and moving, singing about love for all.

6. “Hello” by Beyoncé: This song is an observation, what someone loves about their partner. Also, Beyoncé.

7. “All of Me” by John Legend: We all have imperfections, but to someone else we are perfect.

8. “I”m Yours” by Jason Mraz: This love song is relaxed, kinda bouncy, and sweet. See his song “I Won’t Give Up” for a softer, more serious tone.

9. “The Way You Do the Things You Do” by the Temptations: The Temptations have a million perfect love songs, but this one will make you want to dance with someone.

10. “Everytime We Touch” by Cascada: Speaking of dancing, here’s a song to take you back to Middle School.

11. “Ma Belle Evangeline” from the Princess and the Frog: You didn’t think there’d only be one Disney song, did you?

12. “XO” by Beyoncé: Also, more Queen B. This song is all about appreciating the moment.

13. “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson: Simple and beautiful, “The Way I Am” is about down-to-earth love.

14. “Like You’ll Never See Me Again” by Alicia Keys: This song is emotion-filled, reminding us never to take our loves for granted.


15. “Me Without You” by Sam Tsui: This is one of my personal favorites, added because someone very special in my life sings this to me often. This is one of the most romantic (and catchy!) songs I have ever heard in my life. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
