Naturally if you and your date have been spending time together on a regular basis chances are you have some favorites already so add in a few of those with some romantic classic love songs and you are sure to have a great date night.
Make You Feel My Love by Adele – Adele’s strong, smooth and sexy voice wraps itself around both of you as she croons about what she will do to make you feel her love. The slower tempo of this song is relaxing and incredibly romantic.
Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran – This song tells of how he intends to love her even when she has grown old and can’t do the things she used to do, and that age won’t dim his love for her. It’s romantic and speaks of a love that will endure time, with age being no barrier to how long he will always hold her in his heart.
Treasure by Bruno Mars – What woman can resist being a man’s treasure, a jewel, a gem, someone to enjoy holding in both his arms and his heart. This song has a bit of a Michael Jackson feel to it; a little reminiscent of the music of the 70’s with a modern Bruno Mars twist. Upbeat tempo, it still speaks to the romantic within.
Love Story by Taylor Swift – While the references to Romeo and Juliet may cause the listener to think of the tragedy of the Shakespearean love story it is actually talking about two people who feel they have waited for each other and that they are fated to be together. Nothing is more romantic than the story of love that faced difficulty from the beginning and yet the two ended up together forever.
Come Away with Me by Norah Jones – Norah Jones has a husky timbre to her voice that lends itself well to romantic songs that are ideal for playing on your perfect date night. The lyrics are just as romantic as her voice as she beckons her love to “come away with me”.
Have I Told You Lately That I Love You by Van Morrison – The perfect date night song to have playing in the background as you enjoy a romantic dinner, or even to slow dance to cheek to cheek whether at home. The relaxing tones of this beautiful song lend themselves well to strolling hand in hand along a sandy beach as the sun sets too.
I Want to Know What Love Is by Foreigner – An older song from the 80’s but still as relevant and romantic today as it ever was. Foreigner pour all their heart and soul into this emotional song that older couples will remember well, and younger couples can learn to appreciate as music of the 80’s enjoys a revival.
No One by Alicia Keys – Alicia’s powerful voice belts out lyrics that speak of how no matter what everything will be all right and that no one will stand in the way of what she is feeling. For those who may be facing opposition to the love this is a great song to make them feel that they are not the only ones to experience this but that together they can withstand the disapproval of others.
Never Going to Give You Up by Barry White – No perfect date night playlist would be complete without at least one song by Barry White and this is one of his best. A great song to end the night on!
There are literally millions of romantic love songs you can choose for your perfect date night playlist. Just remember that putting the list together is only half the fun, and that sharing them with someone special is the icing on the cake.
