That’s very specific. The other two lists had songs primarily from those decades so they obviously still apply, but I’ll try to do new ones just 4 u. You can find the other two here and here.
1) There Is A Light That Never Goes Out by The Smiths (1986). ‘To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die’ can only sound romantic when Morrissey sings it.
2) Such Great Heights by The Postal Service (2003) This is one of my favorite songs in general, not just in the lovey dovey genre. So well written. So good. The Iron & Wine cover is equally as beautiful.
3) Faithfully by Journey (1983) This song is so nice and pretty that it’d almost be unbearable if it weren’t so classic. When I think 80s and love songs, I think Faithfully. I’M FOREVER YOURRSSSSSS.
4) I Got You (At the End of the Century) by Wilco (1996) This is just a way cooler version of I Got You Babe. Way cooler. Because Wilco is nothing if not effortlessly cool. And he loves you for centuries.
5) Wonderwall by Oasis (1991). I mean, look. As if this isn’t one of the most classic love songs ever. And also it’s fun to blare and scream in your car no matter how old it gets, because it never gets old.
6) Mother We Just Can’t Get Enough by New Radicals (1998) I hate that You Get What You Give is the only song most people know by New Radicals because this one is a gem. It’s so happy and free and fun. And it’s a love song so there.
7) Hands Down by Dashboard Confessional (2002) The mid 2000s is my favorite time of music because of all the angst-ridden teenage jams that came out like this one. ‘Your kiss might kill me / So won’t you kill me / So I die happy’ UGH. (Stolen is a close contender too, but this one’s more dramatic so it wins.)
8) Maps by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (2003) This kind of doesn’t sound like a love song but it is one. And it’s the best.
9) Head Over Feet by Alanis Morissette (1995) Jagged Little Pill is one of my favorite albums of all time. This song is only like 1/12 reasons why. The music just stopping when she says ‘I am aware now’ is the best moment in the whole song other than that fantastic chorus.
10) Sea of Love by Cat Power (1998) It’s just sweet. That’s all.
