As the temperature drops, the desire to cuddle on the couch rises. With all seasons come songs that set the mood perfectly; however, love songs in our day and age don’t always have to be sappy. Every person has a different way of falling in love—here are a few songs that’ll help.
“The Way” by Ariana Grande feat. Mac Miller
In her breakout single, “The Way,”Ariana Grande manages to make a smooth transition away from her Disney Channel beginnings. Seeming to have taken notes from the divas that came before her, Ariana’s vocal range, paired with her bubbly personality, give this love song a vivacious kick. This song will remind you of a lighthearted high school romance.
“Treasure” by Bruno Mars
Taking a delightful trip back in time, Bruno Mars makes this a love song worthy of the disco era. Glorifying the girls in the crowd, Bruno makes “Treasure” a feel-good love song without the nagging feeling of nostalgia. The only reminiscing you do when listening to “Treasure” is longing for more songs like it!
“Hold On, We’re Going Home” by Drake feat. Majid Jordan
Debuting this track off his new album entitled Nothing Was The Same, Drake has gone back to his singing ways. Regardless of whether or not you like his vocals, you will find yourself singing “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” Exposing a kind of emotional honesty you don’t see from most rappers, Drake is sure to win some hearts over with lines like “You're everything that I see, I want your hot love and emotion, Endlessly, I can't get over you, You left your mark on me.” Old school Drake has made a comeback with this love song, making you feel as though you should be going home with the one you love.
“I Need Your Love” by Calvin Harris feat. Ellie Goulding
Erring on the House genre of music, Calvin Harris pairs his up-tempo techno beat with vocals done by the lovely Ellie Goulding. The video captures a love story quite beautifully in its relation to how we keep our relationships digitally logged (i.e. pictures, videos). What captures the essence of love in this song is its attention to the feminine aspect of desire.
This indie-electro duo takes love into a whole other realm with “Safe and Sound.” By applying their bumpin’ beats to love, Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian lure your ears in with lines like “You could be my luck, Even if the sky is falling down, I know that we'll be safe and sound.” The combination of dance music and cutesy lyrics about keeping your loved one safe make this song a must-have for your iTunes!
Keeping love in your playlists will always set the mood for finding it. What new songs have got you falling fast? Leave us a comment!
