1. “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston (1992)
“I Will Always Love You” has become Whitney Houston’s anthem after being made famous in “The Bodyguard,” a film that made the song famous. Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” (originally a Dolly Parton smash) is the best love song of all time because of her unparalleled singing prowess and powerful emotional performance.
2. “September” by Earth, Wind, and Fire
Earth, Wind, and Fire’s “September” is one of the greatest songs of all time, yet it’s also a wonderful love ballad. “Ba de ya” is the song’s anthem, and we couldn’t have it any other way.
3. “You Make Loving Fun” by Fleetwood Mac (1977)
“You Make Loving Fun” is a simple, chicken-soup-for-the-soul classic in the uptempo rock genre of love songs. What a beautiful sweetheart you are!
4. “At Last” by Etta James (1960)
“At Last” is one of the few tunes that can enthrall a room with just the first few chords. Our eternal prayer is that the spell cast by this timeless Etta James beauty lasts forever.
5. “Thinkin’ Bout You” by Frank Ocean (2012)
Musician Frank Ocean is one of the most intriguing artists working today. In addition, “Thinking About You” has an uncanny warmth even by Frank Ocean’s standards, while “Forrest Gump” and other tracks provide equally beautiful tones of pain and love.
6. ‘Let’s Stay Together’ by Al Green
‘Let’s Stay Together’, the Reverend’s famous 1971 love song, encapsulates the vows of marriage: ‘We’ll stay together, no matter what.’ These promises, however, take flight when sung by Green. While Green’s original has been covered numerous times since its publication, Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction gave it a new lease on life. In 2012, Barack Obama sang the song during a fund-raising event, and it was a huge boost for the song.
7. ‘God Only Knows’ by the Beach Boys
When Brian Wilson first heard Phil Spector’s symphonic vision for the Ronettes’ “Be My Baby” in 1963, it apparently had him so infatuated with the song that he would listen to it 100 times a day. Wilson and the Boys surpassed the master three years later with a tune that elevated the concept of the sophisticated love ballad to new heights.
Soaring transitions from intro to verse fit well with the uncertainty of the first line (‘I may not always adore you’). We’re left with a heartbreakingly delicate song of longing, commitment, and fidelity as the harpsichords and angelic brass fade and the opening caveat is laid naked. Back in the mid-’60s, combining phrases like “What good would living do me?” with the use of God in the title was a hazardous move. There was nothing to be concerned about. Since its universality has made it nearly nondenominational and humanist, the song has magically given succor to all forms of love, regardless of religion.
8. ‘Be My Baby’ by the Ronettes
There are many notable covers of this track, including those by John Lennon, Martin Scorsese, and Brian Wilson. Scorsese used it to herald his directorial debut in Mean Streets and used it to announce his entrance in Mean Streets. Phil Spector added a bow tie to the bubblegum love song with ‘Be My Baby,’ released in 1963, portraying the urgency of love and the sweaty palms that go along with it.
9 “Kiss Me” by Sixpence None The Richer (1997)
“Kiss Me” is one of those songs that rises to prominence because of the films it appears in. In the Freddie Prinze Jr.-led romcom, She’s All That—even if we enjoy Prinze’s onscreen chemistry with Rachel Leigh Cook—the picture would have been lost without the Sixpence None the Richer song.
10 “Come Away With Me” by Norah Jones (2002)
Norah Jones’ silky jazz sound and smoky voice attracted notice when she first appeared in the early ’00s. It was arguably this song that put the musician on the map, both as a brilliant artist and as someone who could create a good love song. She’s also been writing love songs for a long time now.
11 “Die a Happy Man” by Thomas Rhett (2015)
Thomas Rhett is a master of the love song. As evidence, check out “Star Of The Show” and “When You Look That.” But where are Rhett’s showstoppers? 2015’s squeal-inducing smash We dare you not to crack a smile as you listen to this one!
12 “My Heart Will Go On” by Celine Dion (1997)
This song by the legendary Celine Dion instantly conjures images of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet in Titanic’s sad raft scene (think: “I’ll never let go, Jack!”). It isn’t really necessary, but you should definitely watch Titanic again to reactivate your memories!
13 “Realize” by Colbie Caillat (2007)
A 2007 song by Colbie Caillat and an interpretation of my middle-school journal, “If you simply realize what I just realized, then we’d be ideal for each other, and we’d never find another,” she sings. Young and in love, oh, the joys of youth!
14 “You Send Me” by Sam Cooke (1957)
“You Send Me” has a winning combination of Sam Cooke’s pitch-perfect vocals and comforting lyrics. This ’50s classic is a timeless love song.
15 “Moon River” by Frank Ocean (2018)
Of course, “Moon River” wasn’t written by Frank Ocean. Audrey Hepburn sang the song in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and it has since become a classic. Nonetheless, Ocean has taken the scene-stealing hit in a new direction, and his appealing sound makes it worthy of inclusion on a list.
