Top 10 Love Songs
With Valentines Day soon approaching, we here at Matt Strafford Enterprises have compiled a top 10 list of love songs we get requested for Weddings & Parties. There are some personal favourites in here too … Enjoy!
Number 10 – Bruno Mars ‘Just The Way You Are’
Bruno Mars seems to be the king of love at the moment, however with lyrics that make us wonder ‘ is he mental’ and ‘ Would he actually catch a grenade for me?’…. I’m sure we have all got a soft spot for a bit of Bruno!
Number 9 – Norah Jones ‘Come Away With Me’
Being a massive fan of Norah Jones this was an obvious choice to include into the top 10 love songs. She is hugely popular at weddings too and this is her classic song Come Away With Me.
Number 8 – Des’ree ‘Kissing You’
A classic love song from the film ‘ Romeo & Juliet ‘ sung beautifully be Des’ree this song has made its way into our top 10 because it has been many couples first dance and continues to be too.
Number 7 – Celine Dion ‘ Because You Loved Me’
Confession time…. I am personally a huge Celine Dion fan, i’m not sure if it was because my parents used to subject me to hours of listening when i was a innocent young boy, but i seem to have a (very) big soft spot for her. Because You Loved Me is our number 7 love song.
Number 6 – Aerosmith ‘ Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing ‘
This must be one of the most popular first dance songs requested which is why we had to include it in our top 10 love songs. Not forgetting that it is one of the best rock/pop ballards of all time!
Number 5 – Stereophonics ‘First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’
A classic song by a relatively modern artist. This version is one of the best i have heard and very romantic lyrics too.
Number 4 – Joe Cocker ‘You Are So Beautiful’
Classic, absolute classic! We love playing this song when it is requested. Joe Cockers amazingly gravelly voice and heartfelt lyrics makes this song our number 4 love song
Number 3 – Alicia Keys ‘If I Ain’t Got You’
Covered by many artists but we had to include the original, Alicia Keys is our number 3 love song. Again it is a popular first dance song at weddings and requested quite a lot at parties too. Fantastic song with real lyrical meaning.
Number 2 – Tony Bennett ‘ The Way You Look Tonight’
An all round fantastic song that just missed off the top spot for us.
Our Number 1 Love Song – Van Morrison ‘ Have I Told You Lately That I Love You’
This is many couples first dance song. Gaining the number 1 spot on our top 10 love songs list. The lyrics are beautifully written and the song is simple too… Enjoy!
