Well I don't think there's a better way to express your love for someone, than through songs. Cards, or the well planned 'unexpected gift at an unexpected time', all pale in comparison. In life, all you need is love, uhhh, & chocolate, & a good bank balance, & high speed internet!! Ok, jokes apart, I'm now gonna share my favorite love songs with you... 

"I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you.."

'Hoobastank' from the song-The Reason

The song topped the charts globally, & it's no surprise. The vocals, lyrics & song structure are bodacious. Change is usually difficult, but when spurred by love, it's smooth & easy( or atleast it seems so!!)...

"Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don't know where I am
I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go.."

'Brighty Eyes' from the song-First day of my life

Though I'm not into this band all that much, I absolutely luuurrrvvve this song. The song lines are too good to be true. And anyone who's been in love knows that your life begins anew, from the moment you fall in love...Right??!!

"If the love that I got for you is gone
If the river I cried ain't that long
Then I'm wrong, yeah I'm wrong, this ain't a love song..."

'Bon Jovi' from the song-This ain't a love song

Though most people consider 'Always', as the best love ballad by Bon Jovi, this is my pick. This song is taken from the album 'These days. The lyrics & the song structure give you an instant eargasm. For those of you who haven't checked it out yet, it's high time you did.....

"Lying close to you feeling your heart beating
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming,
Wondering if it's me you're seeing
Then I kiss your eyes and thank God we're together
And I just wanna stay with you
In this moment forever, forever and ever..."

'Aerosmith' from the song-I don't want to miss a thing

The soundtrack of the movie Armageddon, was filled with awesome rock songs, but all of them paled in comparison to this gem of a love song. The song climbed upto number one on the global charts, in a jiffy...

"You fill up my senses like a night in the forest,
like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain,
like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again..."

'John Denver' from the song-Annie's song

This song by Country rock giant John Denver is simply mindblowing. The lyrics & music are nothing short of perfect. After listening to this song, you'll feel like you just walked out of a Monet painting...

"I can't deny what I believe
I can't be what I'm not
I know our love forever
I know, no matter what.."

'Boyzone' from the song-No matter what

Though the boyband has belted out way too many perfect love ballads, this is my favorite. Love the simple lyrics & the awesome music. If you've been in love, you know that nothing else really matters, & you'll do anything to make it last forever....

"Please forgive me
I know not what I do.
Please forgive me
I can't stop lovin' you
Don't deny me.
This pain I'm going through...
Please forgive me if I need you like I do..."

'Bryan Adams' from the song-Please forgive me

Sandpaper voiced Rock icon Bryan Adams has been revered for his unbelievably mushy love songs. This mother of a love ballad, is one of my favorite love songs ever...Love the lyrics & the perfect song structure..

"My love throws me like a rubber ball
Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing
She won't catch me or break my fall
Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing
Baby's got blue skies up ahead
But in this I'm a rain cloud
You know she likes a dry kind of love
Oh oh oh, the sweetest thing.."

'U2' from the song-The sweetest thing

Bono & gang are considered to be the best Rock band ever. They have more than their share of uber mushy love ballads, to their credit. This short sweet love song, is my favorite by this band....

"Nothing you can know that isn't known
Nothing you can see that isn't shown
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be
It's easy

All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need...."

'The Beatles' from the song-All you need is love

The list of Rock love ballads, will never be complete without the quartet that started off writing mushy love ballads. The lyrics & song structure are simple yet strong & soothing. Trust me it'll give you an instant eargasm!!

That's all for now.....
