We may not talk about love on the radio very often.. But music and love go hand in hand. Seriously! Did you know 72% of songs are written about some form of love? Today we’re focusing on the good love, the love that gives you butterflies. We start this countdown with a love letter turned into a song that’s innocent, simple, and about avoiding everyone but that special someone.
Peter Bjorn And John - Young Folks
Queens Of The Stone Age - Make It Wit Chu
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Maps
In 2004 there was a rumour that this song was written for Jack White. Whether or not something was actually going on between Karen and Jack will remain unknown. However, she addressed the rumour and claimed that this song was written about her ex. The weirdest part is right after Karen clarified the rumour, Jack White covered the song at Reading Festival to stir up controversy.
Coldplay - Fix You
Arctic Monkeys - Why'd you only call me when your high?
Awolnation - Sail
This song broke a ton of music records. Spending roughly 20 weeks on the chart, the 2nd longest time inside the hot 1000 chart with 79 weeks, only to be surpassed by Imagine Dragons.
askmen.com named ‘Sail‘ the best lovemaking song of 2012. Not only because the lyrics are suggestive but also that the rhythm has been believed to be perfect for getting it on. So what are you waiting for? 😉
The Lumineers - Stubborn Love
- Lust, hormones, testosterone and estrogen.. This is the fun stage when you’re dating someone.
- Once you’re a love struck couple, Dopamine begins to take effect. If you have your brain examined during this stage it actually looks like you’re on cocaine! You don’t eat properly and you don’t get much sleep… sound familiar?
- Serotonin, the cuddle hormone… This is where you procreate and crap…
Rise Against - Swing Life Away
U2 - All I Want Is You
Bono tends to get inspiration from his wife Alli, almost every U2 song features her name.
Grouplove - Tongue Tied
Bob Marley - Could You Be Loved
She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break… her heart! So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze her, and don’t expect more than she can give … Smile when she makes you happy and let her know when she makes you angry or miss her when she ‘s not there.
Cage The Elephant - Cigarette Daydreams
Pearl Jam - Black
The White Stripes - Fell In Love With A Girl
Foo Fighters - Everlong
Nirvana - Heart Shaped Box
The idea of this song came from Courtney Love when she presented Kurt Cobain with a heart-shaped box full of precious possessions. The song switches meanings between Kurt’s feelings over Courtney and his feelings on how women are treated.
Mumford & Sons - I Will Wait
Marcus Mumford wrote this song for his wife. Unfortunately, it never became a hit single but was always the favourite when played live.
City & Colour - The Girl
“You don’t ask for no diamond rings (Diamond rings)
No delicate string of pearls (String of Pearls)
That’s why I wrote this song to sing
My beautiful girl.”
