My All-Time Favorite Love Songs

John Marine | 2/14/2010 06:55:00 PM | | |
Valentine's Day gives me a chance to share some of my favorite love songs. What you're about to see in this blog entry are some of my personal favorite love songs. A good thing about Valentine's Day is that there is actually a day where we can chat on love. I don't believe in Valentine's Day because I can't fathom why there should be only one day out of the whole year to show love to others? How come love can't be year-round? It's like Mother's Day and Father's Day (my mom had to be mom AND dad in my time). Enough babbling from me... let's kick this thing off proper, players!





--- Favorite Love Songs: Modern ---
I'll be sure to offer you some of my favorite love songs from both the past and the present. This section concerns recent songs. I mostly mean songs from 2000 to now.

NOTE: This section contains links to Amazon products. You are welcome to click on images and links to learn more about each item or even purchase these items if you so choose. Please see "An Important Amazon Note" in my blog's sidebar to see more information on any Amazon items shown.

Since the cool kids have these things called MP3 players, I'm willing to let you check out MP3 downloads of some of my favorite love songs.

* "I Wanna Love You Forever (Album Version)" by Jessica Simpson
This was the first song I've heard from Texas native, Jessica Simpson. This song from 1999 remains a classic to me because Jessica just sounds so pure and so lovely. Let her bold voice captivate you as you listen to this song.

* "I Think I'm In Love With You (Album Version)" by Jessica Simpson
I like this song for the same reasons I like the previous songs. This song is very fun.

* "Take My Breath Away" by Jessica Simpson
B00137O7OO
Let me tell you something... I had no idea that I'd start off with three songs from an artist I'm not usually a fanatic of. This one is the beautiful song from Jessica Simpson.

* "Clumsy" by Fergie
First hearing this song back in 2008, this is a rather catchy song.

* "No Air" by Jordin Sparks feat. Chris Brown, and "One Step At A Time" by Jordin Sparks
Jordin Sparks' self-titled album features two wonderful songs. The former American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks, has a bold and sweet voice accompanied by some great beats. "No Air" is a great song. I'm certainly a fan of "One Step at a Time" as it's a great song.

* "You Mean The World To Me" by Toni Braxton
This was my favorite song hearing it in 1994. It's my all-time favorite song from Toni Braxton.

* "Let's Get Married" by Jagged Edge
Not many artists or groups wanted to celebrate love to the point of talking marriage. That is, until Jagged Edge made their song.

* (various songs from Legacy - The Greatest Hits Collection)
This is the only full CD I'll feature in this blog entry because there are too many to name that I recommend. Favorite songs of mine (relevant to this blog entry's theme) include: "I'll Make Love to You," "End of the Road," "On Bended Knee," "One Sweet Day," and "4 Seasons of Loneliness." All songs can be found on the CD I mentioned. I think Boyz II Men is the last great R&B group. As far as celebrating love while also singing beautifully, Boyz II Men were the Isley Brothers of the '90s.

* "The Very Best Of Prince" by Prince
This 1995 song is one of my personal favorite songs of 1995. I sometimes feel like singing or playing this song to every beautiful girl I know or see. This song is as good as it gets in making a girl feel beautiful.

* "Two Is Better Than One" - Boys Like Girls (feat. Taylor Swift)
This is a very awesome song. Just listening to how the song flows is just awesome. Just the harmony of the voices is something amazing.

* "Goin' Crazy" by Natalie
Natalie was a former Houston Rockets Power Dancer. When she came along with this song somewhere in 2005 or 2006, the Clear Lake, TX native struck a chord with me with this song. This song is beautiful. This may be one of my favorite songs of the 2000s.





--- Favorite Love Songs: Classics ---
Here's some old school love!

* "For The Love Of You (Part 1 & 2)" by The Isley Brothers
Honestly... how can you NOT love this song? NOBODY has ever made a song that has even surpassed the original. Only one that comes close was a saxophone rendition by Candy Dulfer.

* "I Just Called To Say I Love You" by Stevie Wonder
The messages in this song are wonderful. It's to show that it doesn't have to be a holiday or some other special time of year just to tell the one you love "I Love You."

* "All I Do" by Stevie Wonder
Bold singing, great instrumentals, nice beats... this is another lovely performance by one Stevie Wonder.

* "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston
Good songs last forever. This is a classic song you'll hear in karaoke, American Idol, singing games, and things like that. Purely classic. I've better appreciated this song as I got older.

* "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" by Whitney Houston
Most of you know that I can't stand fandom of the '80s. Of the many misses of the '80s, this one is a hit. I was only four years old when this song was released in 1987. This is actually one of my personal favorite Whitney Houston songs.

* "Never Too Much" by Luther Vandross
This is perhaps my favorite song of the late Luther Vandross.

* "Waiting For A Girl Like You" by Foreigner
I've commonly heard this song in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City." Again, I can't stand the '80s, but it doesn't mean that every song was terrible. This one is just great to listen to.

* "How Am I Supposed To Live Without You" by Michael Bolton
This song is a love classic to me. I think there's no shame in liking this song, especially the way Michael Bolton sings so boldly. Only other Michael Bolton song I've loved is "This Christmas."

* "You Are My Lady" by Freddie Jackson
Here is another love classic. It's the best way for a guy to say that his girl is everything he needs.

* "Love Train" by the O'Jays
You don't need no ticket to ride the Love Train. Truly a love classic even today.

* "Love TKO" by Teddy Pendergrass
Finally, with the death of Teddy Pendergrass, I HAVE to include this very cool song.





These are as many favorite love songs. Maybe you have your own all-time favorite. This MP3 clip widget features just about all the classic songs. So have a look and thanks for reading!
