Is romance even possible without music? The right song can put you in the mood or else help you process and relive the romance after the fact. As Valentine’s Day draws nearer, it is of extreme importance that your playlists are ready and romance-ified. Here are six songs that perfectly capture what I love about love. Click on the title of each song to listen to it!
1) The Gambler by Fun.
This is my favorite romantic song of all time, because it’s the story of completed love. It’s easy to believe in the first blush of attraction, but my heart really swoons at this story of a married couple with grown children looking back at their beginning and forward to their ending. It’s absolutely beautiful.
You come home from work, and you kiss me on the eye
You curse the dogs, you say that I should never feed them what is ours
So we move out to the garden, look at everything we’ve grown
And the kids are coming home so I’ll set the table; you can make the fire
