Silly Love Songs: A Valentine’s Day Collection of Favorites

“You’d think that people would have had enough of silly love songs, I look around me and I see it isn’t so. Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs. And what’s wrong with that? I’d like to know…” – Silly Love Songs, Paul McCartney

While sitting in the office thinking of something fun to post on social media this Valentine’s Day, my office mate Richie and I were listening to and discussing “love songs”. I found an article from a bridal magazine which compiled some favorites and broke them down into categories; new, old, alternative, country, etc. They did a pretty good job, but I think when it comes to love songs, it can mean something different for everyone.

For me, love songs aren’t always just about romantic love, but love for family, friends and the overall power of love in an uncertain world. I decided to write down my favorite love songs. I started off slow, but then they were coming to me faster than I could write them down! See what you think. (In no particular order)
