“If it weren’t for music, I would think that love is mortal.”

Art exists to speak on the human experience, and music is one of its ultimate forms. It inspires me as an artist, and as a human being. I have fallen in love with many songs over my lifetime because they have expressed emotions and realizations that I couldn’t have put into words. It felt like I was not alone. Our experiences are powerful and they are special to us. This is the gift that music and other art forms can give. A way to say “this is how I feel,” and that is something can connect us to one another.
I have many favorite songs for different reasons, but I am a wedding photographer so today I wanted to blog my top 5 personal favorite romantic songs!
These are songs that I think express a pure true love. I think it can be harder to express this lasting contentment in love than suffering in heartbreak. Anyway, I hope you can enjoy a few of these tunes on your next date night. Here is my list of most romantic songs! <3
5. “Our Love is Easy” – Melody Gardot
“If you ask me plainly I would gladly say
I’d like to have you round just for them rainy days
I like the touch of your hand, the way you make no demands”
4. “Young and Beautiful”- Lana Del Rey (Orchestral Version)
“Dear Lord, when I get to heaven
Please let me bring my man
When he comes tell me that you’ll let him in”
3. “The Dress Looks Nice on You”- Sufjan Stevens
“I can see a lot of life in you.
I can see a lot of bright in you.”
2. “It Had To Be You”- Frank Sinatra
“I saw them all, just couldn’t fall, ’til we met”
1. “Sophia”- Nerina Pallot
“You, with your new born eyes,
Have you ever loved a man like I love him?
Do you hurt but still feel alive, like never before?”
