Love songs are generally associated with happiness and love; sad songs about relationship breakdowns are also included in this category. These songs, however, can be categorized separately as 'heartbreak songs'. Another variant is the category of 'bawdy songs'; these songs emphasize more on the physical aspect of love than the emotional.
The list could have been much larger than the one given below, as there are a umpteen number of good songs available. However, this is an attempt to present a select list.
