Hello all of my beautiful Top 10 fans, I hope you have had a great start to February and are ready for one of the most romantic days of the year. This sensual Top 10 list will take you through my top romantic songs if you catch my drift.

  1. “Across the Stars” by John Williams and the London Symphony Orchestra

This song is the love theme from “*Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones,” which is the second movie chronologically in the “Star Wars” franchise. There aren’t any lyrics in this song, but the orchestra tells an amazing story through the instrumentals and it is such a romantic and powerful piece of music.

  1. “Just the Two of Us” by Grover Washington, Jr. featuring Bill Withers

“We can make it if we try,” this soulful tune explores wanting to spend time with someone that you love. The bass lines and horn section make this song very sultry, pairing the instrumentals with vague lyrics that could be interpreted in many different ways makes this a great romantic song.

  1. “Iris” by Goo Goo Dolls

An absolute powerhouse of a song, I really like how the lyrics of this song seem to pick up in the middle of a deep conversation about love and connection with someone. While “Iris” has pangs of sadness, I think the overarching themes of desire really make this intense song a Top 10 spot on my romantic list.

  1. “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye

The introductory guitar part of this song is truly iconic, and this song is used in seemingly every steamy scene for the last 30+ years. The title of the song is a pretty clear indicator of what the song is about, I will let you interpret the meaning.

  1. “Faithfully” by Journey

The iconic Journey piano sound lends itself to this heartfelt track paired with a story about yearning for the person you love while you are away from home for an extended period of time is really touching. “Faithfully” isn’t flashy by any means, but delivers such a strong message.

  1. “Burning Love” by Elvis Presley

This Elvis song might serve as a bit of a foil in comparison to “Faithfully,” but that doesn’t mean it’s any less of a love song. “Burning Love,” as the name might imply, details the more passionate, fiery side of a loving relationship.

  1. “Careless Whisper” by George Michael

The intro saxophone solo might just be one of the most recognizable pieces of music of all time. While the lyrics of “Careless Whisper” might not seem super romantic in themselves, the overall groove of the song is really what drives it home.

  1. “Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton

First off, as a guitar nerd, the solo that starts this song is suuuper tasty. Back to business, this song is about a couple who goes out for a night, and they complement each other and it really is just a sweet song.

  1. “Your Love” by The Outfield

Starting off with one of the most iconic first lines of a song, “Josie’s on a vacation far away.” This classic 80s hit isn’t the most lyrically complex, but it is a really fun song. “I don’t want to lose your love tonight” is a pretty self-explanatory lyric of what this song is about.

  1. “Kiss From A Rose” by Seal

We made it to the most romantic song! “Kiss From A Rose” by Seal is probably one of the most cheesy/fun songs ever. I think the song tries to be profound and deep but comes across as a corny but fun love song. The clarinet solos matched with medieval-sounding guitar tracks really lends itself to this epic quest of a song.
