Whether you’ve just met someone special and you want to win them over, or you want to let your partner know how you truly feel about them, here’s a list of songs that will help you find the best words to speak your heart.
‘Crush’ by Jennifer Paige
You know that feeling when you meet someone that makes your heart skip a beat, but you also know you are not having a ‘date with destiny’? The massive 1998 summer hit is a song about meeting someone new and liking them but also going with the flow and not rushing things. After all, it’s just a crush.
‘Love at First Sight’ by Kylie Minogue
We all have those moments when we feel tired of chasing after destiny, and we are ready to give up, but then magic happens. You are at the club having fun, not paying attention, and — bam — you see him/her on the dance floor and ‘it’s love at first sight.’
It is one of the best songs about meeting someone for the first time and immediately realizing that they are something special.
‘Call Your Girlfriend’ by Robin
Fast forward to 2010, Swedish dance-pop smash hit is the song you want to send to your new fling who is not quite available yet to start something new. If you like what you see, why not go for it?
‘Falling for You’ by Colbie Caillat
Colbie Caillat’s hit from 2009 turned into a summer love anthem. The sweet melody and her silky voice make it one of the best songs about falling for someone you just met. Some people are not always the obvious choice, but they eventually turn out to be precisely what we need.
‘When I Saw You’ by Mariah Carey
Have you ever locked eyes with someone and felt like the moment you shared was ‘transcending space and time’? The powerhouse diva, Mariah Carey, found the perfect words to describe the moment when you realize you have found ‘The One’. It’s that kind of love that changes you forever and makes you want to spend eternity with your loved one.
‘You Don’t Know My Name’ by Alicia Keys
Remember that time when you kept bumping into this cute guy at your local coffee shop? Your heart was racing, your palms were sweating, and all you wanted to say was “Hi,” but you couldn’t find your courage? Well, this sweet and soulful song about meeting someone special will remind you of the sparkle in their eyes after you finally approached them.
If you like Alicia Keys then you probably know “Distance and Time” a great love song about a long distance relationship.
‘Love Story’ by Taylor Swift
Talking about teenage dreams and summer love, I have the best tune for you. ‘Love Story’ put Taylor Swift on the music map, and millions of teenagers identified with the new pop/country Princess. She sings about those first love pains — first time holding hands, first kiss, first night together but also first fights and first tears.
‘Butterflies’ by Kacey Musgraves
The title says it all. It’s one of those songs about meeting someone for the first time and falling for them unexpectedly. Kacey sings, ‘Now I remember what it feels like to fly, you give me butterflies,’ crooning about the warm and fuzzy feeling we get when we finally meet someone we have been waiting for a long time.
‘Call Me Maybe’ by Carly Rae Jepsen
This is probably the catchiest tune ever. ‘Call Me Maybe’ is the perfect song about meeting new people. It talks about running into a stranger that you immediately want to go out on a date with.
‘I knew I loved You’ by Savage Garden
Have you ever dreamt of that one perfect person who is the missing piece of your puzzle, but you haven’t met her/him yet? Well, Savage Garden sings about this incredible feeling of falling in love with someone you are yet to meet. This love anthem is probably the best song about meeting someone special, even if it’s just in your dreams.
