The top 10 relationship songs are hard to define

10 most romantic songs - Wantmatures Blog

Picking a top 10 category is always a challenge, and the top 10 romance songs are no different. The sheer amount of songs makes this an unenviable task. That is why it is a divisive but popular discussion point on online dating services such as Wantmatures. Breaking it down into separate musical genres makes the task a little bit easier. Still, again, everyone has their own taste and conflicting opinions. Love songs for him, love songs for her, country love songs, indie love songs, rock love songs, and even modern love songs all divide opinion in their own unique ways.

Top 10 slow songs

When you think of the slow song, your mind automatically diverts to the last song in a school disco where you all partner up before going home. If you are a bit older, then it will switch your attention to a Bride and Groom’s First Dance song or again the final song of the evening at the wedding party. A slow song can trigger many emotions from a sad scene in a famous film or invoking painful memories of loved ones that are no longer with us. A slow song plays at the heart-strings like no other can. Here is an example of some top 10 slow songs and where you might hear them;

Top 10 couple songs

Couple songs can be defined in various ways and can be interpreted entirely different by each recipient. A conventional couple song would be about a break-up or the love between two people. Now, if you are thinking of that special moment where you and your partner thought, ‘this is our song’, it doesn’t have to be a romantic love song. It could be a hard house track from when you met in a club, a random country’s National Anthem from when you went to the Olympic Games and sat in the crowd for a medal ceremony. These moments are unique to each individual, and every couple will be contrasting. It is up to you if you choose your wedding song or a club classic from Ibiza that was played on loop during your first holiday together.

Alternatively, ‘couple songs’ could be performed by a famous couple, not necessarily be written for a couple themselves or coupes around the world. Many global superstar duos’ have recorded tracks whether you see them as a traditional couple (Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan), singer brothers (Liam and Noel Gallagher), singer sisters (The Cheeky Girls), celebrity singers (David Baddiel and Frank Skinner), or fictional comedy singers that release a song for fun or charity for example (Noel Edmonds and Mr. Blobby from Noels House Party or Zig and Zag from the Big Breakfast)

To take another twist on a top ten list for couples, we listed (in no particular order) the top 10 songwriting couples/duos below:

  • Robbie Williams and Guy Chambers
  • Elton John and Bernie Taupin
  • Bennie Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus (ABBA)
  • Paul McCartney and John Lennon
  • Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller
  • Burt Bacharach and Hal David
  • Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson
  • Carole King and Gerry Goffin
  • Keith Richards and Mick Jagger
  • Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards

Old romantic music

Any old romance music can warm the heart and bring a nostalgic love feeling between you and your partner. The senior and mature audience may appreciate this more. Even if they are divorced. The selected tunes can remind a man or a woman alike of the happier times during their marriage or relationship. The risk, of course, is that the single members and users on Wantmatures can experience a lonely feeling with such memories being invoked. The love may have gone, but the pain doesn’t always fade as quickly, and hearing a lyric from an old romantic song can be a quick and sometimes brutal reminder of this for both men and women. Some old romantic classics include;

Artist: Stevie Wonder

Song Title: For Once In My Life

Well known Lyric: ‘As long as I know I have love, I can make it.’

Fun Fact: Stevie Wonder used this tune as a celebration of love and its strength after it was originally written as a slow ballad type tune.

Artist: Sister Sledge

Song Title: Thinking of You

Well known Lyric: ‘What did you think brought the sun out today?’

Fun Fact: This song can put a smile on your face just like being in love can. It brings jubilation and romance in a catchy disco beat.

Artist: Fleetwood Mac

Song Title: You Make Loving Fun

Well known Lyric: ‘I never did believe in miracles

Fun Fact: Creating sustainable love music was quite the feat for this band. Fleetwood Mac had many well-documented bust-ups following love triangles within the group.

Artist: Otis Redding

Song Title: That’s How Strong My Love Is

Well known Lyric: ‘Any kind of love you want, I’ll be with you.’

Fun Fact: This timeless classic is very powerful because of the strong imagery used to create a beautiful setting between the sun and the moon.
