So what do you think would happen if ‘Music’
died? I’m not sure if ya’ll feel the same – but to us it would be the end of the world as we know it!
Music – the chords, the beats, the words… what we cannot say, don’t have enough words to express – we leave to music. Oh yea. Come forward one dude or lady, and prove that you haven’t been grateful —- for the music.
So here’s the thing – we at Crushaider were wondering if sometimes a starry eyed lover wants to say something to his/her heart’s delight – and cannot. What is to be done then? How can the unsaid feelings, the rush of emotions be described — expressed and communicated.
So we thought up an awesome idea. How cool would it be if we compiled a list of Top Ten Love Songs to help ya’ll folks to express your unspoken feelings with?
Listen up people – you may not be a poet, a singer – no matter. Here’s a list that will help you say it all – even when, you say nothing at all
Thank us later folks. Have fun devouring this list!
And I’d give up forever to touch you
Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be
And I don’t want to go home right now
The Original Sound Track from the movie ‘City of Angels’ (by the band: Goo Goo Dolls) is for those who are so passionately, so insanely, so absolutely in love that they don’t care what they lose or gain – but for that one, look, one touch, one moment in time — they could give up eternity for!
One note of caution: This song isn’t for the faint hearted, nor for those who are attracted to the idea of love, but cannot risk ‘falling’ in it! So take a rain check on your emotions – if you are using this song to convey how you feel, first make sure you feel it!
Song Personality: Intense, Aggressive, the sort of love that cackles.
You and I
I lose control because of you babe
I lose control when you look at me like this
there’s something in your eyes that is sayin’ tonight
I’m not a child anymore, life has opened the door
to a new exciting life
This song is recorded by one of the awesome-st bands ever – The Scorpions. Most of us may or may not have heard this song, but who can ever have not heard the unforgettable, haunting ‘Winds of Change’ sung to such a mind blowing perfection!
Anyway – as a love song, this song has a strange old world charm, like something tender – like something of a new discovery being made. This song has an underlying tone of intensity but the way its sung, like a soft, delightful encore, it can be the perfect song if you’re dedicating it to someone who have known for a while, not a very long while and are still getting to know!
Oh and this song so reminds one of the Beatles – the dream, the lifelines, and the sense of unity…
Song Personality: Tamer, but powerful nonetheless. This song is most likely to be used by artistic people. As mentioned before – it has an underlying sense of ‘unity’ in passion.
Imagine you and me
Imagine me and you,
I think about you day and night
It’s only right
To think about the girl you love
And hold her tight
So happy together
If I should call you up (call you up)
Invest a dime
And you say you belong to me
And ease my mind (ease my mind)
Imagine how the world could be
So very fine (very fine)
So happy together
Sung originally by The Turtles and later recreated by Simple Plan – this is a fun love song. Endearing, absolving and, well, absolutely endearing! It’s the sort of song that makes you want to build a movie inside your head… ‘Imagine me and you…’ Who could resist an offer like that?
Not someone in love for sure
On a side note – another reminder of The Beatles, what with the ‘Imagine’ and all!
Song Personality: Happy, fun, hopeful. Oh, and — endearing. No dispute!
This romeo is bleeding, but you can’t see his blood
It’s nothing but some feelings
That this old dog kicked up
It’s been raining since you left me
Now I’m drowning in the flood
You see I’ve always been a fighter
But without you I give up
Now I can’t sing a love song
Like the way it’s meant to be
Well,I guess I’m not that good anymore
But baby, that’s just me
Yeah I, will love you, baby
Always and i’ll be there
Forever and a day, always
First, before we forget – here’s an uncontestable fact: If Jon Bon Jovi were a food, we’d all be chronic eaters. Lay it off guys – even you’d agree to that, even if a tad grudgingly!
Moving on – Recorded by who else – but the Adonis incarnate JBJ and his Band, Bon Jovi, this is the sort of song that can give you that strange feeling of butterflies going dizzy in your stomachs. It’s just not the passion in this song – it’s the raw honesty, a feral confessional-like passion, an oncoming sense of such primal surrender you have to think twice before you can even dare – to bat an eyelid.
Always – that’s a freaking huge, blunder-size-huge promise to make. Think before you tread. This song is a sure shot dangerous territory!
Song Personality: Raw. Very Raw. Dangerously RAW!
Oh my love, my darling
I’ve hungered for your touch
A long lonely time,
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much,
Are you still mine?
I need your love,
I need your love
God speed your love to me.
‘Longing personified’ – this song, sing it, dedicated it when you feel the run of longing so strong it borders a little — well, sad. Remember the movie, ‘Ghost’?
This song is for those ‘feel’ a lot. And deal in a lot of feelings. Lovely song, but unrushed, gentle and somewhat – needy.
But ‘needy’ scores well in the check list of Love. So go for it!
Song Personality: Longing, Desirous, Yearning.
You’re still the one
(When I first saw you, I saw love.
And the first time you touched me, I felt love.
And after all this time, you’re still the one I love.)
Looks like we made it
Look how far we’ve come my baby
We mighta took the long way
We knew we’d get there someday
They said, “I bet they’ll never make it”
But just look at us holding on
We’re still together still going strong
(You’re still the one)
You’re still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You’re the one I want for life
(You’re still the one)
You’re still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You’re still the one I kiss good night
This is one helluva song sung by one absolutely OMG-She’s-Stunning! – helluva lady – Shania Twain.
If her nasal twang has not already melted you in places, you have to imagine a woman singing words as these —- dripping with sultry, subtle sex appeal; this could the ‘THE’ song any man couldn’t resist!
Song Personality: Sexy! Very Sexy!
I’d like to see ya – thought I’d let ya know
I wanna be with ya everyday
Cause I got a feelin’ that’s beginning to grow
And there’s only one thing I wanna say
I’m Ready – To Love Ya
I’m Ready – To Hold Ya
I’m Ready – To Love Ya
I’m Ready – To Hold Ya
Ready as – I’m gonna be
The less said – the better. Like really, what else is left to be said once you have simply – very straightforwardly stated – ‘I’m ready.’
And especially if you’re as husky voiced, unassuming and still, as forbidden-ly attractive as Bryan Adams, this song will tempt, cajole, plead – but mostly command surrender from whoever it is that this song’s been sung to!
Song Personality: Strongly Assertive, Confident, Passionate. A No Nonsense Song. We like!
Can’t help falling in love with you
Wise men said, “Only fools rush in”
But I can’t help falling in love with you
Shall I stay?
Would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with you
Like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling, so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand
Take my whole life, too
For I can’t help falling in love with you
So retro, but so fresh! It almost demands worship! This song sung by the King (re: Presley) and UB40! There is such a vivid sense of ‘natural continuity’ – like something eventual – like ‘you and me, belong together, naturally!’ Like rivers flowing, surely into the sea.
Dedicate it to someone, you lovely deeply!
Song Personality: Benign, Committed, Comforting.
When you say nothing all
How you can speak
Right to my heart
Without saying a word,
You can light up the dark
Try as I may
I could never explain
What I hear when
You don’t say a thing
Ronan Keating may be no Cobain, Morrison or Marley – but this song, excessively sweetened as it is, is still such a feel good song, you can’t help smiling when you listen to its words, just washing down loads and loads of sweetness, ALL OVER YOU!
There is such a lovely sense of everyday, uncommonly common oneness in this song that it’s refreshing in its simplicity!
Song Personality: Sweet, Nurturing, Comforting.
Drops of Jupiter
Now that she’s back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there’s a time to change, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey
But tell me, did you sail across the sun?
Did you make it to the Milky Way
To see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated?
Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star?
One without a permanent scar
And then you missed me
While you were looking for yourself out there?
Oh OK. This one’s a little tricky. A mindbender. Not your traditional love song with the ‘feel good’ flowing out of its incredible lyrics. Be careful if you chose this song to dedicate to your special person – this is no uncommon song. Mostly because it’s an ‘uncommon song’.
This song is fantasia – stuff that imagination cooks up and lets loose in the environment to take whatever shape it wants. Sung by the awesome ‘Train’, it’s second to none.
Bottom line is – you use this song if you’re familiar with ‘awe’ and are ‘inspired’ but the one you love, and are not just ‘in’ love with them. This song is demanding. And wistful. And a work of art!
Song Personality: Fantasm, Existential, Wistful and Commemorative! In other words – I.N.C.R.E.D.I.B.L.E!
Have a blast!
