Music Column: Love Lullabies and Lately Lyrics

By Jade Glaister

The month of February, thanks to its possession of Valentine’s Day, provides the opportunity to listen to love songs all month long. No matter your situation, you can take a break from studying by laying in bed, eating chocolate, and listening to a plethora of sweet and beautiful songs… which may be my current position right now. To help you achieve this mode, here is a list of love songs, both platonic and romantic, inspired by many of my peers’ favorites. 

  • “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley (all hail the king)
  • “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” by Elton John (reminding me of “The Lion King”)
  • “Next To Me” by Imagine Dragons (my personal favorite)
  • “I GUESS I’M IN LOVE” by Clinton Kane
  • “It’s Been a Long, Long Time” by Harry James (in honor of Captain America)
  • “Until I Found You” by Stephen Sanchez
  • “Please Notice” by Christian Leave (crushes can be cute)
  • “Tenerife Sea” by Ed Sheeran
  • “From Eden” by Hozier (honestly, most songs by Hozier)
  • “Sweet Creature” by Harry Styles
  • “Till Forever Falls Apart” by Ashe and FINNEAS (yay platonic love!)
  • “Somebody To Love” by Queen
  • “You Are In Love” by Taylor Swift (along with most of her “Lover” album)
  • “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra
  • “With or Without You” by U2
  • “Marry Me” by Train

There are also many fantastic recently released albums and songs in case you want a break from all the love songs this month. In January, The Lumineers released their album “BRIGHTSIDE,” which features nine magnificent songs highlighting optimism. Despite car crashes and other disasters, this album demonstrates that there is always a silver lining. With this album, The Lumineers continue to blow fans away with perfectly assembled lyrics and instrumentals that draw from personal experiences and make them relatable to the listener. Also using their own stories in songs, Hippo Campus captures common feelings during one’s youth in their newest album, “LP3.” Recently, Rex Orange County announced the future release of their fourth album “Who Cares?” in March through the release of the song “Keep It Up.” Other great singles include “Jigsaw” by Conan Gray, “Numb Little Bug” by Em Beihold, “Pick and Choose” by Daniel Nunnelee, and “she’s all i wanna be” by Tate McRae.
