The 100 Best Love Songs

Updated on January 19, 2013

One Hundred Songs in the Key of Love

While I have written a description of each of one hundred great songs with the word love in the title and included videos and ways to buy each and every one, I thought it might be nice to have the whole list in a single place. I'll link to each of the pages with the sets of ten but here you'll find a straight-forward list of all 100 love songs (eventually, though for now there are only the ones I've posted to date). You can, of course, submit your own recommendations on the page for that, as well. I always welcome new music and if you don't see your favorite love song listed here I'd be grateful to know about it.

This is a work in progress as I create and organize the Top 100 Songs in the Key of Love but I'll keep updating it as I go. Please let me know in the comments below what you think of the list so far and if you've got any suggestions for making the whole pile of love songs even better. Thank you!

Love Songs 61-80

This is where I need your help, my darlings. I've got a pile and a half of lovely songs with the word love in the title (well, 84) but I need a few more. Won't you submit your favorite love songs and give a girl a hand?

But Wait! There Are More Love Songs to Own

I've got far more love song samples here because, well, you can see them without taking up the whole screen. I've included more versions of the various songs with love in the title than just the ones listed because, well, there are so many fabulous takes on the theme that I just couldn't resist. I have no idea how many songs are on the list right now but I do know that the whole Top 100 isn't listed. Some of them are a little obscure.
