Awesome Romantic Songs
1. Lucky – Jason Mraz with Colbie Caillat
Lucky features cool reggae and island rhythms along with a great message. My wife just recently discovered Jason Mraz. I dedicate this song to her!
They don’t know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I’ll wait for you I promise, I will
I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
2. Your Body is a Wonderland – John Mayer
The smooth sounds and powerful lyrics in this one are a surefire way to set the mood for love! John Mayer is always a trustworthy choice for great listening.
You want love
We’ll make it
Swim in a deep sea
Take all your big plans
And break ‘em
This is bound to be a while
Your body is a wonderland
3. Better together – Jack Johnson
Jack Johnson is one of my favorite artists and Better Together is up there as one of my favorite songs. You’re significant other will love this one!
Love is the answer at least for most of the questions in my heart
“Why are we here?” and “Where do we go?”
And, “How come we’re so hard?”
It’s not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together
4. Come Fly With Me – Michael Buble
A remake of a Frank Sinatra classic. This version is light and airy. It has a fun, celebratory tone that I really enjoy.
Once I get you up there, where the air is rarefied
We’ll just glide, starry eyed
Once I get you up there, I’ll be holding you so near
You may hear the angels cheer because we’re together
5. You’re Beautiful – James Blunt
We saw James Blunt in concert and he was fantastic. You can never go wrong telling a woman that she’s beautiful!
You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do
6. Wonderful Tonight – Eric Clapton
Clapton is classic and this song is an oldie, but a goodie. That lovin’ feeling just oozes from this great ballad!
Its late in the evening
Shes wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me
Do I look alright
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight
7. Light My Fire – The Doors
Turn up the heat with another classic rock favorite from The Doors. Light My Fire might just be the invitation you’re looking for!
You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn’t get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire
8. Don’t Happen Twice – Kenny Chesney
For the country music lovers out there, here’s a fun song about young love. Don’t Happen Twice will reach the sentimental lovers and flood them with great memories!
To this day I still taste that first kiss
How I prayed it wouldn’t end
In a way, seeing you like this
I guess it never really did
9. Come a Little Closer – Dierks Bentley
This one is sure to set a smokin’ hot mood late in the evening! There is nothing coy about this country music favorite.
Come a little closer baby
I feel like layin’ you down
On a bed of sweet surrender
Where we can work it all out
There ain’t nothin’ that love can’t fix
Girl it’s right here at our finger tips
So come a little closer baby
10. Wicked Game – Chris Isaak
Chris Isaak belts out a smooth, but smoldering number in Wicked Game. In fact, the whole Heart Shaped World CD is highly recommended.
The world was on fire
No one could save me but you.
Strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I’d meet somebody like you
