Most bands you know have written a love song, and not all of them are your traditional let’s get under the sheets Barry White R&B jams. In fact, because most songs are from the artist’s point of view often speaking to their emotions, there are a large number of love songs that you may not know are love songs.
Many artists will say their songs are meant to be interpreted anyway the listener sees fit. This is largely because artists know songs create an emotional connection. Have you ever been to a concert and see someone cry because they are so excited to see their favourite group?
