Why Do So Many People Listen to Love Songs?
There are more love songs than anything else. If songs could make you do something we’d all love one another. -Frank Zappa
Even if you haven’t written them yourself, I bet you have some favorite romantic love songs for her from the heart, right? I am pretty sure you do. Love songs can stir the soul in many ways.
I remember way back my mother always listening to nothing but romantic love songs. This was every Saturday around noon. My sister and I had our chores to help her clean the house and she would put on those eight track tapes (yeah I did say way back) and hear nothing but songs of love. What was interesting to see was that she could be sad or happy and she still played those sentimental tunes. I used to wonder why and think to myself, here we go again, but funny thing was that at times throughout different periods of days I found myself singing these songs. My sister and I would sing along with our mom and many times my mom would take one of us and dance around the room. Memories of times like these are to treasure. I know I do.
Heartfelt love songs are very popular for so many reasons. It can have a meaning to one person and a totally different meaning to another. There are people that can be sad and still listen to sad love songs. There are those tunes that just seem to melt your heart away and there are those that make you feel mighty and powerful. Like pictures can sometimes help you tell someone how you feel, so does music, and especially love songs.
When I was a teen (yes way back), I remember a moment where I wanted to anxiously tell someone that I was attracted to how I felt. No matter how I tried I just froze. I remember listening to a song that soon became one of my favorites to listen to. I went out and bought a 45 rpm record of it. It was the perfect love song for her. Here is part of the lyric:
Yeah, I know it’s kinda strange, but every time I’m near you I just run out of things to say, I know you’d understand ‘Cause every time I try to tell you, the words just came out wrong So I’ll have to say I love you, in a song
Okay if you are not familiar with the lyric it’s a song by Jim Croce (may he rest in peace). You know it’s true though. Sometimes it’s hard to tell someone how you feel and there is always that perfect song you find that can do it for you and more so when the subject is love. Love songs from the heart can make you cry and still feel happy. They can make you like feel already in love but you might not have anyone in mind at all. You love life and you can find a love song that can express that emotion too.
Experience Amazing Emotions
I think you will agree with me when I say that love is a wonderful feeling. When we are in love then it is very enjoyable to listen to love songs when you are away from your partner. It can give you a feeling of closeness to them, and give you very intense emotions.
Also, if you have just experienced the painful experience of just breaking up with somebody, then love songs can help you remember the good and special times. They can help you forget all of the negative things that happened, so that you can focus on the good times and get warm and happy feeling about your past relationship.
It can also be very romantic to listen to love songs with your current partner. There is nothing more relaxing and soothing in the world than sitting in the dark with your girlfriend or wife, in each others arms and listening to special love songs for her. You can really make a deep connection doing this.
There are some great songs about love out there and some of the most famous love songs of all time are “I just called to say I love you” by Stevie Wonder, “Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton and “You are so Beautiful” by Joe Cocker.
Listening to these great songs will make you feel great wherever you are in your life right now. If you really listen to the words closely and accept them into your soul, then they will hold a special place in your heart forever.
Whatever your situation, whether you are deeply in love with your current partner, have just started dating a wonderful person or have experienced a painful breakup, one thing is for sure, love songs should definitely be something you listen to on a regular basis. If you do this then you will experience amazing emotions time and time again.
It’s a powerful thing music. A love song can bring people together. It can bring up memories that reside in your heart and silently put a smile on your face. Listening to some can give you goosebumps and make it seem like the world is just perfect everywhere. It can also make you very sad and bring on loneliness. But overall it can make you want to dance around the room and make you want to shout out to the world, hey everyone I’m in love! So tell me what are some of your favorite love songs for her or even just for you?
