I just made a mixtape for my partner and it made me think real hard about the noble art of the love song. Do you have a favorite? What makes you cry? Let’s get real sappy in here!
Here are some of the love songs I love:
One of the old standards of the Brazilian Tropicalia movement. This song was performed by so many important musicians, but I love this English version from Os Mutantes. The lyrics really hit me hard.
This song is a perfect evocation of the adolescent confusion of a first love.
This song makes me wanna marry someone.
