This is for those crazy in love and the perpetually single that long for love. These songs feel like all the emotions you go through when you’re falling in love, aka the honeymoon phase. The lyrics make perfect captions for cheesy photos on Instagram, the whole nine yards.
‘Today Was A Fairytale‘ by Taylor Swift
This song was featured in the movie Valentine’s Day so it makes perfect sense for it to start off our list. Taylor Swift can write the hell out of a love song, it’s a proven fact. She understands how to tell a beautiful story in four minutes or less and ‘Today Was A Fairytale’ is no exception. She uses words that play on the fairytale theme like damsel and prince and magic and it just makes you feel like you’re living that fairytale!
Perfect lyric for a photo caption with your significant other: “You’ve got a smile that takes me to another planet”
‘Everything’ by Michael Bublé
This song is just a complete fluff fest. Arguably it’s one the most over-the-top lovey-dovey songs we’ve ever heard. Everything from Michael’s smooth incredible voice to how bright this song is, just makes us so happy. We can only dream that someday someone finds many things they love about us to sing about.

‘I Find The Light In You’ by Joe Brooks
No one has ever spoken more highly of someone than Joe did, when singing about his special someone in this song. It’s one of the most beautifully written love songs of all time. The premise of the song is that the person he’s singing about is everything good in the world. When talking about the injustice of trying to find a word to describe the person he says “It would be like smothering a star or covering a work of art”. Excuse us while we melt!
Perfect lyric for a photo caption with your significant other: “I don’t think there’s a sun that’s ever shone brighter than the radiance of you”
‘Pierre’ Ryn Weaver
This song blew up on TikTok and we couldn’t believe we hadn’t heard it before. It’s the most joyous- meant to be played at full volume with the windows down on a sunny day, type of song. Traveling and falling in love is at the top of the bucket list but for now, we will just live vicariously through this song. Also, a lover who could play the bass? The dream.
Perfect lyric for a photo caption with your significant other: “He’s kinda quiet but his body ain’t”
‘I Was Made For Loving You’ by Tori Kelly and Ed Sheeran
Perhaps the softest song you’ll find on this list. Ed Sheeran could collaborate with anyone and it would be magical, it just helps that Tori also has this insanely beautiful voice. The concept of being made for loving someone is what we daydream about. It’s very much like if vows were put to song and we’re obsessed with it. It will go down as a classic love song in our opinion.

‘Your Body Is A Wonderland’ by John Mayer
It’s an all-time classic, truly. Everyone knows this song and everyone has imagined laying in bed with a significant other as they play the guitar singing ‘Your Body Is A Wonderland.’ It’s a perfect song for the honeymoon phase. Especially when lust and love are at the forefront. Plus you get to listen to the sweet sound of John Mayer’s voice. How can it get better?
Perfect lyric for a photo caption with your significant other: “I take all your big plans and break ‘em”
‘Someone To You’ by BANNERS
‘Someone To You’ is the happiest love song. It just fills us with pure joy. We haven’t listened to a song in so long that just makes us want to scream the lyrics at the top of our lungs with the person we love. It’s chant-like and very 2014 pop-sounding but in only the best way. This song needs a place in all love playlists, it is pure serotonin.
Perfect lyric for a photo caption with your significant other: “I’ll make the moon shine just for your view”
‘Love You Like That’ by Dagny
Another unbelievably happy love song. If sunshine was a song it would be ‘Love You Like That.’ Dagny has this bright feminine voice that we can’t get enough of. It’s pop music at its best, Carly Rae Jepsen level perfection. We will be pretending to be in love while listening to this song forevermore.
Perfect lyric for a photo caption with your significant other: “I see myself next to you until we’re old”
‘She Is’ by Ben Rector
This man is in love. Plain and simple he’s down bad. If we don’t have this sung to us at some point in our lives what was the point? It’s just pure infatuation and love in its purest form. We could (and will) listen to this song on repeat anytime we need a little feel-good music. Ben Rector sings the most beautiful love songs and this is exhibit A.
Perfect lyric for a photo caption with your significant other: “She makes beauty look effortless”
‘All The Fucking Time’ by Loote
Can you say the most relatable love song of all time? This song feels exactly like how the talking stage feels right when you make things official. Right before things are serious, you will find yourself blasting this song and screaming its lyrics. It is the epitome of feeling like falling in love. It’s also a solid song to cry to, not that we would know or anything.
Perfect lyric for a photo caption with your significant other: “Boy your love is the shit”
‘Pumpkin’ by The Regrettes
A moment of silence for the best couple of all time, Lydia Night and Dylan Minnette. Lydia of The Regrettes is dating Dylan of Wallows and wrote this song about him and it’s just *chef’s kiss*. It makes references to movies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and also Wallows song ‘Pulling Leaves Off Trees,’ it’s just too good. And Lydia describing Dylan’s “blueberry eyes” excuse us while we sob. This song is just pure love. It’s so sweet and we want to dance around a room with the person we love to it immediately.
Perfect lyric for a photo caption with your significant other:“Now I get why Sarah was so hard to forget”
‘I Like Me Better’ by Lauv
Oh, to be drunk and in love in New York City. Truly sounds like a dream and it’s exactly what this song made us want to do. Lauv describes it perfectly by saying “I don’t know what is but I got that feeling.” This song is that stage when you’re realizing you’re falling in love. When it becomes so clear that the other person makes you better.
Perfect lyric for a photo caption with your significant other:“I like me better when I’m with you”
‘Paradise’ by George Ezra
This is a road trip song. Picture this: the sun’s out, the wind is blowing, and your hand is entangled with another, and these lyrics are being screamed by both of you. It’s the perfect scene. ‘Paradise’ is such a happy song and feels like how we can imagine falling into that true, once-in-a-lifetime love feels like.
Perfect lyric for a photo caption with your significant other: “My lover I’m in paradise whenever I’m with you”
‘You Are In Love’ by Taylor Swift
Did you really think we’d make it a whole playlist all about love songs and only include one song by the queen of love songs? Not possible. ‘You Are In Love’ is like a step-by-step look at how two people fall in love. It’s so beautiful. This is one of the slowest songs on the list but it had to be here. If the emotion of love were a song, it would be this once. We feel so warm and hopeful of that one true love every time we hear it.
Perfect lyric for a photo caption with your significant other: “Pauses then says you’re my best friend”
‘Young And In Love’ by Ingrid Michaelson
We had to end it with this super upbeat poppy good time. Young love is often underestimated even though it’s so fierce and real. Everyone remembers their first love from when they were young, it can be so magical. This song perfectly encapsulates the feelings that come with young love. It captures the invincibility young love comes with.
