Because Prompts are Fun: My Favorite Love Songs

I love music. Loud, with killer guitar riffs and lots of drums. Sometimes fast, thrashing, but always feeling it to my very core.

Because I want to rock.

But…sometimes there’s a song that speaks to my heart. Some would call that a love song. So! Let’s take a look at some of my faves.

My Favorite Love Songs

1. “Love of a Lifetime” by Firehouse
Total hair ballad but it is our song and the first song we slow danced to as husband and wife.

2. “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi
Sticking it out together through good times and bad is the very definition of love – isn’t it?

3. “It Must Have Been Love (but it’s over now)” by Roxette
It sounds like a one night stand, but it is sung with such emotion that it always stirs my feelings and reminds me what loneliness feels like.

4. “Never Going to Give You Up” by Rick Astley
No, you aren’t being rickrolled but I felt this deserved a spot.

5. “More Than Words” by Extreme
Best acoustic love song ever. The lyrics are truly beautiful too.

6. “Everything I Do, I Do it for You” by Bryan Adams
I always loved the romance in Robin Hood, but this song sealed it for me. Now it seems almost cheesy but, I like this song.

7. “Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinead O’Connor
Another song sung with so much emotion. Plus nothing can compare to the love of your life.

8. “I Would Do Anything for Love But I Won’t Do That” by Meatloaf
Love a man who respects me…but I love power ballads even more.

9. “Without You” by Mötley Cru
Another phenomenal hair ballad. I really thought they felt lost without me.

10. “Baby” by Justin Beiber
Just kidding, see #4.

Wow this was way harder than I thought it would be. I kept getting distracted by hair band songs I love (but aren’t love songs) and songs that always make me cry (again not about love exactly).

Well, spill it – name one of your favorite love songs!

    i love that sinead o’connor song, too! I’d pick a Tori Amos song – maybe Northern Lad or Never Seen Blue. I’d be pretty happy if someone I met knew those songs.

    Dude, you TOTALLY just rickrolled me. NEVER GONNA GIVE, NEVER GONNA GIVE.

    Nothing Compares 2 U was just the best AND Without You! I had the cassette single, listened to it to death.

      I completely forgot to put Bryan Adams on my list, and even better was the Bryan Adams/Sting/Rod Stewart All For Love!

    Great list! Bon Jovi has multiple songs that can be on a list. I stopped mine at 12, and that was hard! I wanted a Motley Crue one, but couldn’t think of one of theirs.

    Darcy!!!! I did not know what Rickrolled was and so I just ignored that sentence on your post, but then when I wrote mine I still had the song in my head and “accidentally” rickrolled my readers. Of course, then I had to ask what a Rick-roll was…and now I know… ;)

    I’m a punk rock girl, so I don’t know if anyone would know half the songs I’d pick. My favorite is probably Forever by the Dropkick Murphys. LOL at Rick Astly, my grandfather actually used to like him!

    Some really good songs up there. “More Than Words” is probably my favorite out of your list. It’s so simple, both in lyrics and arrangement.
