"All of Me" by John Legend

"Have Some Love" by Childish Gambino
It's a cold, cold world out there. Sometimes it feels like the only thing that can match that heightened feeling of falling in love is a pounding pop song or a swoony ballad. Think Taylor Swift's sappy letter to her "Lover" or Summer Walker and Jhene Aiko's twisted love song about the lengths they're prepared to go to for their significant other. If that's where you're at, here's a list of the best love songs has given us so far. I'll admit that when I read the title of the song and saw that Jhene Aiko was featured, I assumed we'd be getting the version of Monica and Brandy's "The Boy Is Mine" or maybe even a Thelma and Louise -style revenge bop. But what Summer gave us, instead, was a sappy love song in which she and Jhene hurl threats at any woman who tries to come between their respective relationships. Taylor Swift's "Lover" feels like I've taken a step inside the singer's most romantic daydream. It's the cheesy, mushy type of love song that feels appropriate for weddings. Honestly, me too.

Maren Morris slides in with some relationship philosophy, while FKA twigs sheds light on a relationship's final stages. Lizzo, per usual, slays the house down with the vocal punch that is "Cuz I Love You," and for those teens in the room just looking for a romantic ear worm to blast at the pool, Shawn Mendes might have a bop in there as well.
