Roses are red. Violets are blue. Here are some Valentine’s songs for you. Cheesy? A little. These songs? Definitely not—that’s why they made the cut.

Led Zeppelin “Whole Lotta Love”

Nothing says love like a signature Zeppelin guitar riff and Plant’s high-pitched vocals.

Eric Clapton “Wonderful Tonight”

This ode to Clapton’s then-girlfriend (but also future wife) has become a wedding staple. And for good reason—those lyrics.

The Beatles “Something”

Because can you really have a list of greats without including The Beatles?

Neil Young “Harvest Moon”

Real talk: Hearing Neil Young croon “Because I’m still in love with you” will make you want to slow dance under the stars.

Van Morrison “Crazy Love”

Van the Man has a way with words, and this song is no exception. It’s the perfect lazy morning track and ideal for Valentine’s Day.
