A lot of times when we hear a certain song, we automatically think of a special person in our lives.
Heck, I didn’t even know I still had feelings for my ex until Sarkodie’s ‘I’m In Love With You’ was played one day on the radio.
There’s nothing like being by yourself with nothing but you – your thoughts, and some poignant love song lyrics.
Somehow, music has a way of touching emotions we never knew existed. It is the song’s lyrics that give you the chance to connect, to feel, and to know what is missing in your life when you didn’t even know they were.
There are times I ball out my eyes listening to some songs, not just out of sadness but happiness as well, because the lyrics remind me of a feeling of pain and because I can relate to every single lyric in the song. It’s nice to know what you feel is not abnormal and that others understand where you’re coming from or how you feel, especially if it is your favourite musician.
Love, an intense feeling of deep affection, which sometimes hurts can be the most amazing feeling in the world, especially if you just experienced it.
Love encompasses a range of strong and positive emotional and mental states, from the most sublime virtue or good habit, the deepest interpersonal affection, and to the simplest pleasure.
The majority of songs out there are about love or things relating to love.
Here are the best love songs of all time for your romantic playlist, along with quotes from the lyrics sure to get stuck in your head and make your heart sing.
Darko Vibes & King Promise – ‘Inna Song’
Produced by Streetbeatz, Inna song (gin and lime) has a rhythm that can make you groove and fall in love at the same time. The lyrics harness a certain feel that has the ability to have you bopping your head in no time. The lyrics depict the story of a young man gaining support and love from his woman and putting it into his singing career “I put all the energy you give me in a song, all the good vibes you give me in a song, I put all the loving that you give me into everything. My pretty little thing, see I’ll never never never never.” And it’s nice to know that someone could give your support, your lover, and your energy.
King Promise – ‘Sisa’
Although this is more of a heartbreak song, King Promise’s ‘Sisa’ is a cool afrobeat song with an upbeat tempo that is very relatable. With lyrics that talk about how a lover went from being loving and kind all the time to an overnight change in behaviour which seemed to depict her loss of interest in the relationship. The story of a young man trying to find out why his partner changed when all he wanted to give her love and affection.
“All I want was to give you loving, all I want was to make you smile, you are the sweetest girl, now you most dangerous, now you change so serious.” Sisa is sure to make you understand that love is not always rosy but is worthwhile.
Kwesi Arthur – ‘Turn on the lights’
He’s another one for the people looking to find love. Kwesi Arthur, in this song, talks about needing to find love at this time after working so hard to make some money. The lyrics talk about him needing to find a girl who will be by his side and not just anyone at all. “Turn on the lights, I’m looking for a boo. I just want to put my hands on someone’s daughter, true. So turn on the lights, I taya being single. Who go give me sugar? Give me sugar.”
Finding the right partner who fits in the grand scheme of happenings in your life is very important. As much as having a connection with someone is good, it is important to find someone who gives you peace and compliments you. Kwesi Arthur’s ‘Turn on the lights’ also talks about the need to find that right partner who will be there so that he too can change her life.
Akwaboah – ‘Posti Me’
Have you ever been in a ‘situationship’ where you are unable to tell if it is leading to something serious or just in the spare of the moment? Have you ever wondered if that relationship is worth it and why your partner never wants to show you to the world? Then you will surely enjoy Akwaboah’s ‘Posti me’. In this song, Akwaboah wonders about his partner’s true intentions for him and whether she really cares as she says. He also questions why she never wants to show him off as her partner or why she does not want people to know they are together. “Why you dey worry when people see me with you? Why you dey bore that I posted the picture we took? If the love we share is real, ode yewu e posti me, posti me (My love post me).”
Aside from the purpose of love, these songs are also a great listen on their own. Be sure to update your playlists with these four songs and enjoy your music experience.
