Nothing captures all the myriad human emotions better than songs. Some human experiences are just that universal. There is a song to heal a broken heart and then there are songs that celebrate the highs of falling. Here are 30 songs about love, soulmates, and everything in between.
- All of Me by John Legend
A contemporary classic with Legend’s smooth vocals, heartfelt vocals, and simple tune that is all about love.
- Halo by Beyonce
Heavy on the violins and drums but gentle and honest on the lyrics—this Beyonce song usually flies under the radar but the song is simply beautiful.
- Superstar by Marina
Celebrating each other and support through thick and thin is what a relationship should be and Marina Diamandis captures this in this wonderful song.
- Cherry Blossom by Lana Del Rey
This unofficially released song from Lana Del Rey is all about acceptance and kindness towards the one you love.
- Lover by Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift’s last single has been on the radio waves and has been making us fall in love all over again with the simple but stunning lyricism and easy melody.
- Crystalline by Parekh & Singh
This indie Indian dream-pop due would fly under most people’s radar but a sudden Spotify discovery led to one of the sweetest, most heartfelt songs on love.
- I Will Wait by Mumford & Sons
Mumford & Sons have plenty of great love songs, but this one in particular about coming home to your partner is filled with tender domesticity and love.
- Unchained Melody by The Righteous Brothers
A retro classic, the lyrics still hold the same magic; the bittersweet ache of wait and the final meeting of the river and sea makes this song still among the greatest love songs to be produced.
- Right Here Waiting For You by Richard Marx
You and your partner might be oceans apart right now but this song comes as a balm to the pain and the simple melody will manage a few tears—happy ones, of course.
- Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper
Again, a forever classic, Lauper’s song hasn’t lost its charm and probably never will as she croons of love unchanging and true.
- Save The Best For Last by Vanessa Williams
After many failed relationships, when you get the one who was always meant for you, Williams’ song suddenly makes sense.

We are still going retro, so it’d be a shame to not mention this classic love song, this duet of endless love by the two best powerhouse singers of all times.

With witty lyrics and a plain guitar, Jason Mraz gives love songs a refreshing twist that would have you smiling and dancing like no one’s watching.
- For Life by EXO
Sung by vocal powerhouse K-pop group EXO, this Christmas special song, when translated, is as sweet as it can be where promises of love are made.
- Hero by Enrique Iglesias
Everyone’s favorite Spanish singer has given us many, many love songs but Hero wins because of the lyrics and the raw emotions in Iglesias’s voice.

- Soul Meets Body by Death Cab For Cutie
This band has a penchant for producing the most melancholic love songs and this one is no different, yet the hopefulness in here can’t be missed.
- The Cure by Lady Gaga
Like Fix You, Gaga too wants to help her partner heal themselves with her help.
- Empire by Shakira
The magnanimity of falling and committing is best expressed by Shakira’s strong vocals and the enticing electric guitar sounds.
- Unless It’s You by Christina Aguilera
Aguilera says how she’s not going to marry if it isn’t her current partner and don’t we all want the same when we meet the one?
- Paper Rings by Taylor Swift

Love is something that singers love to sing about and when we find our soulmates, all the love songs make sense.
