Top 10 Valentine’s Day Songs


They’re the songs that touched our hearts, and filled us all with the feelings of love and romance. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we are counting down our picks for the Top 10 Most Romantic Valentine’s Day Songs.

While the topic of love is a popular one, these are the lovey-dovey tunes that make you think of candlelit dinners, red roses, and steamy nights cuddling with your significant other under the stars. So grab your valentine and curl up with some of these romantic tunes.

#10: “Come Away With Me” (2003)
Norah Jones

This sultry and slow moving musical declaration of love helped make Norah Jones a smash hit star back in the early 2000’s, and it’s not hard to see why. With her soft, crooning voice combined with lingering piano key-strokes that encapsulate the feeling of exhilaration of falling in love, listening to this song could bring out the romantic in anyone. This jazzy number is the perfect slow dance track for a quiet night in on Valentine’s Day.

#9: “I’ll Make Love To You” (1994)
Boyz II Men

This sexy #1 R&B hit has been one of the most played songs at weddings everywhere due to its saturation with romantic imagery and smooth vocal styling. Oozing with arousing promises of passion, sensuality, and deep emotional connection, this is more than just an anthem for knocking the boots, but a declaration of true and everlasting love. Arguably the perfect mood-setting jam, the song is notable for the group’s harmonies, which are quite sensual in their own right.

#8: “All Of Me” (2013)
John Legend

Everyone dreams of a partner who will love them at their best and their worst, and this song delivers a message that true love means accepting and caring for all sides of your significant other unconditionally. By outlining the good and bad times, and painting a portrait of his lover as both flawed and human this R&B ballad details the true meaning of “for better or worse” with delicate precision. “All of Me” is inspired by Legend’s marriage with his wife, and has probably inspired the same feelings in listeners everywhere.

#7: “Hero” (2001)
Enrique Iglesias

Some of us dream of a knight in shining armor to sweep us off our feet, leading us away from pain and the disappointments of the past. “Hero” made all these dreams come true when Iglesias serenated the ears of listeners everywhere back in 2001. With breathy vocals, a slow build up to a powerful chorus, and utterly sexy delivery, we couldn’t deny the romantic fantasies this sultry jam offered, making us all want to find a “hero” of our very own.

#6: “Love Story” (2008)
Taylor Swift

This teenage romance has puppy love written all over it. Filled with Romeo and Juliet references galore, Taylor Swift does not disappoint in weaving a Disney-fied portrayal of romance complete with all the typical clichés. You have a damsel in distress, a Prince Charming, and star crossed lovers destined to be together forever...aww. Written by Swift about a real life “forbidden love” of hers, many fans can relate to Taylor’s longing for a storybook ending.

#5: “I Can’t Stop Loving You” (1962)
Ray Charles

Ray Charles redefined music genres when he stepped out of his gospel and R&B roots to record an entire album of country music in 1962. This song off that album outlines the desire to rekindle a relationship and win back lost love or suffer the fate to live in the past forever. With earnest and sincere vocal delivery and fearlessness to take on a different genre of music with ease, who could resist giving him another chance?

#4: “Let’s Get It On” (1973)
Marvin Gaye

Sometimes you gotta cut to the chase and let your partner know what’s really on your mind. This 70’s slow jam delivers deep sensual arousal with little effort through a universally recognizable smooth musical melody and soulful vocals that outline the reasons to “get it on” tonight. While this song made Marvin Gaye a sexual icon, it was originally written as a religiously themed political piece before Gaye’s emotional delivery and lyric alterations made it the anthem of sexual liberation we know and love today.

#3: “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe” (1974)
Barry White

All it takes is those few starting notes and those deep baritone whispers, and you know you are in for a funky and soulful slice of sexy time. This 1970s classic has become a staple of love making playlists for couples everywhere. This is one song we've all rocked out to whether it be on the dance floor or in the comforts of our bedrooms. However we’re still working on getting our voices as low as Barry.

#2: (“Everything I Do) I Do For You” (1991)
Bryan Adams

Let's face it: when we are deeply in love, we would do anything for our significant other. This power-ballad from the Canadian rock star gave us all a humanizing and identifiable peak into what goes through our heads when we fall madly in love with a new flame. Originally written for the 1991 film "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," this slow dance song became a chart-topping success due to its relatable lyrics about being head over heels in love.

Before we unveil our #1 pick, here are some honorable mentions…

- “I Don’t Want to Miss A Thing” (1998)
Aerosmith

- “You’ll Be In My Heart” (1999)
Phil Collins

- “Amazed” (1999)
Lonestar

- “We Found Love” (2011)
Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris

- “Kiss Me” (2011)
Ed Sheeran

And our #1 pick for best Valentine’s Day Song goes to…

#1: “Endless Love” (1981)
Diana Ross and Lionel Richie

What could be more romantic than a song about undying passion sung as a duet? We couldn't think of anything either. Schmaltzy, yes. Pandering, most definitely. But you can't deny that the voices of these music legends rolls through your ear like a romantic gondola ride, creating a melody you won’t soon forget. Coming from a place of sincere mature love and understanding, the compatible vocal styles of Ross and Ritchie show us that love is sometimes friendly, comfortable and can last for an eternity.
