Music and love have long since had a friendship in the world, but as a nation, what are our favourite love songs of all time?
In today’s blog we take a look at some of the most highly regarded love songs. Would you choose any from our list?
Minnie Riperton’s Loving’ You was released in the seventies and this is probably one of her most famous songs and favourited by many!
Who remembers the film Belin? Well remember when Tom Cruise does a bit of Karaoke? It’s the song You’ve lost that Loving Feelin’ by the Righteous Brothers he sings.
The producer was the infamous Phil Spector and this song is favourited by people the world over. However, despite it being considered a love song – it’s definitely not a positive one.
No love song list would be the same without a Celine Dion number! So we thought we’d highlight The Power of Love. This was a chart topper for Celine in 1994 and found her international success. Titanic came after this and who can forget the vocals on this! However, it was first covered in the Eighties by a singer called Jennifer Rush…seems like she got their first!
Stevie Wonder’s I Just called to say I love you was a hit in 1984. This was a massive hit and unlike many love songs is actually a very cheerful, upbeat number! Go Stevie!
I think I love you by the Partridge Family was a hit in 1970. David Cassidy and his step mother were the only cast members of the television series who actually appeared on the recordings. Still used today, this classic is a great little love song.
Queen took a step outside of their rock for a fifties styled number called Crazy Little Thing called Love and in 1980 it topped the charts. Still a firm favourite for those who enjoy their love songs.
There are literally hundreds and hundreds of songs made famous in the name of love. Some are cheerful, some are great break-up songs but we all have our favourites. What’s yours?
