Which of the Love Songs Describes Your Relationship?
Love songs permeate every pheromone-laced corner of society. You can’t escape them, whether watching sultry romances at midnight hours or listening to top 40 stations on the radio. The majority of songs that get popular are love songs.
Love songs pledge undying faithfulness to relationships. As long as people are together, bitter or breathtaking lyrics will marry slow tempos. Don’t freak out, that’s the last time the quiz will mention marriage. We aren’t here to be the judge, but we’ll give a verdict that will literally set the musical record straight on which of the many love songs hit your notes!
Does the old-school love song “Your Cheating Heart” encapsulate the uneasy feelings one of you constantly carries for the other? Are you much more willing to set differences aside to see the bigger picture like one of the best ballads by Elton John “Your Song” implies? Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” veers in the polar opposite direction, declaring you can’t make someone love you. “The Power of Love” commends those whose hearts are actually overflowing with eternal love. If you just shrug and go with the fine flow, maybe your song is “Good Vibrations” by the Beach Boys.
Love songs have left a lipstick-smeared imprint on the fabric of human culture. "Unchained Melody" by The Righteous Brothers is a classic hit that has stood the test of time. Country love songs like "Your Cheating Heart" have topped the Hot Country Songs chart and become genre-defining. Pop love songs litter the scene. Mariah Carey remains the most successful female pop singer of all time, soaring in vocals and popularity with relatable lyrics. Michael Jackson dominated the dance floor and album records with "Thriller." The best-selling album heavily features songs about making love or love gone both right and wrong.
Decades later, Taylor Swift built a record-setting career on romantic songs from a teenage dream/20-something's perspective, including "Love Story." Even the rock sector of the music world leans on love songs for louder hits. The dramatic love songs from Fleetwood Mac on Rumours, complete with real-life romance issues between essentially every member of the band, serves as an ultimate example.
