It seems like there are some topics that artists and creatives have done to death at this point because there are some things that we all think, feel and experience. They know that this will make their work appeal to more people. Either that or they've not been through much so they have to fall back on the stuff that they definitely have been through. Either way, it means that there is a hell of a lot of songs out there that deal with love, making it impossible for anyone to think that they're all great.
We wanted to create a quiz taking a look at the huge number of songs that deal with love, so we've put a little something together. We think that by you rating these various songs, we'll be able to figure out what song you'll have on at your wedding, possibly during your first dance as the rest of your loved ones look on. It's an important choice! Hopefully, we'll be able to show you a song that you would love to have at your wedding.
So, are you ready for us to guess what song you're going to have played at your wedding? Want to rate some of the best and the worst love songs out there? Well then, let's get started!
Can’t Help Falling In Love by UB40
Weird to think that one of the most famous love songs out there was created by a band named after a form that you needed in the UK to claim benefits. That being said, it doesn't stop this tune from being a lovely look at the human desire to find somebody you love.
400 LUX by Lorde
We're pretty young here so we're not sure how to feel when somebody fairly young breaks into the music business. Can they really be old enough to know what love is all about to be able to create art about it? What do you guys think?
Baby Love by The Supremes
Quite possibly one of the best songs on this list, The Supremes managed to create a tune that sticks in everyone's head for so long. Not only that, but it taps into exactly how it feels to be in love with someone.
Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis
There's a crazy thing to how quickly people can fall out of public favor, managing to push themselves into the charts but not lasting too long before they're out. Seriously, how can that feel? It must be pretty horrible if we're being honest.
You've Got The Love by Florence & The Machine
We don't know about you, but we like it when solo artists out there use more than just their name. There's something a little bit boring about that sort of thing in our opinion. Maybe that's just us though? What do you guys think?
Your Song by Elton John
What you may not know is that Elton John doesn't actually write his lyrics, just the music, so this declaration of love wasn't actually put into words by Elton himself. That being said, as we said before, these universal things make sense to all of us anyway.
You Are The Sunshine Of My Life by Stevie Wonder
Stevie Wonder's career has been an odd one, filled with absolute bangers that make you want to groove but also consisting of sentimental tunes like this one. It's interesting that this man seems to jump between the two throughout his career.
Crazy For You by Madonna
Madonna has spent a lot of her career courting controversy, but that doesn't mean she hasn't spent a lot of her time in the limelight singing about love as well. She has a softer side and this comes across in tunes like this.
Crazy In Love by Beyonce
This was the song that really proved Beyonce was going to last as a solo act, absolutely blasting her way into the world of solo acts with a fairly aggressive tune about love. Love can be soft and calm, but sometimes it absolutely smashes you over the head as well.
What's Love Got To Do With It by Tina Turner
One of the strongest voices on this list, her ability to absolutely blast the lyrics out still astonishes us. On this tune, Turner's voice turns to the subject of love and the way that it can mess with the human head. It messes us with all!
Everlong by Foo Fighters
While Foo Fighters are known for their harder tunes that mostly appeal to older rockers and dads, that doesn't mean they don't often turn their hand to some softer songs as well. Everlong is their best tune that deals with the concept of love.
Fix You by Coldplay
Coldplay is like the polar opposite to Foo Fighters, with almost all of their tunes being pretty soft, even if they're not slow. This tune is their best about love, even though a lot of their songs seem to be about love anyway...
Hey There Delilah by Plain White Ts
We often wonder about songs like this, wonder whether they're about actual people, because it must be pretty weird to know that loads of people around the world are listening to a catchy song about you. Imagine if you didn't even like the song...
How Deep Is Your Love by The Bee Gees
We often wonder how it's possible that some men have the highest voices of all time. As people we fairly normal voices, if not voices that are too deep, this also freaks us out a little bit. Is there a scientific reason for why it makes us uncomfortable?
Use Somebody by Kings Of Leon
Sometimes bands decide that their albums aren't selling well so they change the way they sound completely. They'll pretend that it's because they've got a different creative vision now, but we all know that it's just not true...
Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars
How do men like Mars end up convincing people that all they care about is women and having fun? There must be some worry and doubt locked up down in his soul... Maybe that's what happens when you're handed everything you wanted by showbiz.
Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran
When you think about it, it's pretty crazy that somebody who looks like this has managed to make a huge career in the music business. So much of the business is based on how you look, but this guy has come along and disproved that.
Sway by Michael Buble
Buble has managed to bring back an old form of music and turn it into something that pleases the masses, but usually the older generations. That doesn't mean some younger people love his take on love that he often puts on his albums.
Steal My Girl by One Direction
It must be weird being in a band that pretty much entirely caters towards young girls. Especially if you have some sort of creative nature in your mind, not being able to let yourself get unleashed just in case you upset your fanbase.
She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5
It amazes us that Maroon 5 is still a band. How have they managed to cling on by the skin of their teeth with only a handful of popular tunes? It makes no sense to us and if somebody could explain we'd really appreciate it.
She Loves You by The Beatles
If there are any bands that exemplify how perfect you can make a love song, it's The Beatles. These guys knew how to pull on the heartstrings and worked it to their advantage for their entire career. Seriously, does anybody do it any better?
Same Love by Macklemore
It's good to see that non-LGBT members of the music industry understand that it's important for people to write love songs about homosexual couples as well. These people exist and it's about time we stopped ignoring them.
Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper
There will always be some songs that remind us of times or things that they actually have nothing to do with. For us, this track will always make us think of Napoleon Dynamite, despite the fact that they shouldn't really be put together...
One And Only by Adele
Like many musicians both before and after her, Adele has managed to make an entire career out of singing about love and heartbreak so we knew we have to put this woman in the quiz. What do you think of Adele's take on love?
My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion
Sure, it may have been made for use with a film, but that doesn't stop many people from arguing that this is one of the greatest love songs ever made. Do you agree with those people or do you think it's just that little bit too cheesy?
Love Takes Time by Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey is known for being a total diva, so we find it hard to believe that anybody could claim to actually love her. That being said, her entire musical career would seem to argue against this, as she's constantly going on about love.
Love Story by Taylor Swift
While some songs on this list have a bit of an obtuse or subtle title, Swift decided that she wouldn't leave anything to the imagination and call her song Love Story. You know exactly what you're getting into with this one!
Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding
See, now this is the sort of woman that the music business is always looking for as she's beautiful and therefore easily marketable to the world. You know what is easily marketable? Any songs that happen to be about love.
I'll Make Love To You by Boyz II Men
There's a weird eccentric nature to this group of lads, with there not being many vocal groups out there that focus on R&B. Seriously, can you think of anyone who looks like this in the music industry at the moment?
I Want To Know What Love Is by Foreigner
There's even a place for love with bands that have dedicated their career to stadium anthems, ones that lend themselves to more of a cruder lifestyle, not one that seems to allow for a high level of love and caring.
Unchained Melodies by The Righteous Brothers
Whatever happened to the musical duo? There used to be so many of them and now people don't seem to spend a lot of time creating them. These days, it's all about the bands, not just a couple of singers on the stage.
To Sir With Love by Lulu
When we were younger, we always thought that most of the famous singers out there were American, but we obviously grew up to find out that this isn't true. Doesn't stop a lot of them from singing in an American accent though...
I Think I Love You by The Partridge Family
Does anybody else think it's messed up that there was once a time when it was usual for parents to force their kids into a family band? Their lives are changed forever and they had no say in what happened to them.
I Knew I Loved You by Savage Garden
We were never a massive fan of this sort of music if we're being honest, and this Aussie duo doesn't do anything for us either, although we have to admit that we love this name. Savage Garden is a fantastic name for a band.
I Found You by Alabama Shakes
Good to see a modern and angry band spend their time throwing out tunes that talk about music. It's this sort of stuff that keeps us interested in modern music, even though it can be pretty easy to ignore the more modern stuff...
