The BEST Love Songs – 50 Plus Picks!


Here’s a great idea for a last minute Valentine’s Day Gift that won’t make her or him feeling like it was!

Create a music playlist not only as an important element of a romantic evening, but as a love letter to your Valentine this year. It’s a personal and memorable gift. You can easily create a playlist on iTunes.

Get in mood. Music may be just the thing to help you set the right tone for your Valentine’s Day celebration. When you need some help because you can’t quite find the right words or you simply need an aid to get there, use music to express yourself. Your music may start off “safe” and fun loving or it may be all about “crazy love”. As always, consider your audience and vibe when selecting your music.

Whether it’s young love, new love, or mature love consider all the decades and styles of music when selecting your “love music”. We compiled some of our favorites ranging from current music back to the 60’s. Our barometer was how the song moved us – some in a reminiscent way (we associate specific songs with certain times/events in our lives), some are just fun lovin’, some pay tribute to the angst and joy of young love, while others are just so darn romantic that you can’t resist getting swept up in the romance! So enjoy our list – it’s full of love!
