Love songs come in many varieties: simple or soaring, unrequited romance or crazy in love, just starting out or been together forever. The quality of a love song can vary just as much, with some describing a relationship so dysfunctional you can’t help but wonder why these people are still together. But this playlist is not about those songs. No, this is a collection of songs that evoke love so well they can only be described as “relationship goals”.
These are the love songs you want your love life to be like. Some capture the feeling of falling head over heels and reveling on the way down, while others speak about the strength their love gives. One is the dysfunction of being unable to stay together but unwilling to stay apart. All of them, though, have something about them, whether it’s joy or solace or a love as deep as the Marianas Trench, that makes their audience sit up and say “that’s what I want out of love.”
