Classic Love Songs

The list given in this article has a blend of old as well as modern songs. Hope it will help you make your love more romantic and enjoyable.
Love songs are generally associated with happiness and love; sad songs about relationship breakdowns are also included in this category.

Another variant is the category of 'bawdy songs'; these songs emphasize more on the physical aspect of love than the emotional.
