Putting into words the rush of emotions when falling hard for someone is probably one of the toughest situations you can face. So, if you are also someone who has been crushing on someone lately, below is my playlist of the 99 best love songs about a crush.
Once cupid’s arrow has hit you, just being around them makes you excited, makes you smile more, and makes you lose your mind more. You probably even heard the violins in the background.
I once started developing feelings for my best friend and wanted to tell her everything. But thinking about making the first move kicked me right in the gut.
Gathering the courage to say, “Hey! Will you be my girlfriend?” made me shrink to my core.
Tingled by the idea “Old is Gold”, I tried the old-fashioned way: give my crush a slight hint with the best playlist I could find.
So here are my picks:
— ZOG RADIO (@zogradiofm) January 12, 2022
1. “Levitating” by Dua Lipa feat. DaBaby
The electro-disco-infused track “Levitating” is honestly an anthem to blast at total volume in your car thinking about running away to another world where there’s no one but you and your crush. Oh! Just the idea of it makes you float.
2. “Adore You” by Harry Styles
The third release from his album “Fine Line”, Harry Styles’ “Adore You”, captures the thrill and charm of adoring your love interest to the extent that you would do anything for them, including “walk through fire” for them. And the adoration keeps growing to outlandish proportions with every passing day.
3. “Me!” by Taylor Swift feat. Brendon Urie
Taylor Swift’s irresistible single, “Me!” featuring Brendon Urie from Panic! At The Disco, is more than just a pastel-colored and cute kitty-filled track. The bright jam highlights all the great things about being unique. No individual is free of errors, but there is always someone who’s your perfect match.
The track proves that Tayor is a great performer. But what about her songwriting skills? I had my doubts, so I made sure to talk about Taylor’s songwriting in my recent article. Just click the link to read it.
4. “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley
The platinum-certified pop track is undoubtedly one of the greatest romantic songs of history. Innumerable artists have brought their versions, but Elvis Presley’s voice brings that unusual element of a lullaby that sweeps you off your feet.
5. “Treat You Better” by Shawn Mendes
The smash hit “Treat you Better” is the definition of groovy. The song is a plea to a girl caught in an abusive relationship and reciprocating the love to the one who loves her. Every woman deserves a “gentleman” who understands her worth. So stop wasting your time and be with the one who loves you instead.
6. “Photograph” by Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran has a way with words. The heartfelt single “Photograph” from his second studio album is everything you want your little crush to know about love. Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it heals, but love is everything that keeps couples coming back to each other. The time you spent with your love interest stays in your memory like a necklace close to your heart.

7. “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran
Written and sung by Ed Sheeran, the renowned single “Perfect” describes the charm of crossing your eyes with your love interest you know from your childhood days. Ed also explains that if you love someone, tell them what you feel immediately because this opportunity can slip away from your hands. So go ahead and “Don’t give them up this time.”
8. “You are the Reason” by Calum Scott feat. Alicia Keys
The track by Britain’s Got Talent’s finalist Calum Scott, You Are The Reason, is one of the romantic songs that makes you realize how every relationship has difficult times. But you stick with it because you can’t bear the separation from your loved one. Calum suggests that love can fix every wound, every scar.
9. “Love Story” by Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift wrote this song in under 20 minutes, making it one of my favorite in the 99 best songs for your crush playlist. The iconic track not only became the best-charting single at the time of its release but remains the fourth-best single of all time in Billboard’s countdown. The track paints the age-old tale of a young star-crossed couple trying to make it work. This track feels like a Shakespearean ode.
10. “Nobody But You” by Blake Shelton feat. Gwen Stefani
This powerful duet by Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani is about knowing the person you are with is your soulmate with whom you want to spend the rest of your life. Their love draws you towards, and you can’t imagine being with anybody but them.
11. “You Belong With Me” by Taylor Swift
You Belong With Me is a typical love song about the unspoken emotions you feel for your crush. Confessing your love to someone can be complicated, especially when you know your crush is in a relationship with someone. You still can’t help and feel the protective urge to fight for your love in the hope they will understand they belong to you.
12. “Love You Like a Love Song” by Selena Gomez
It’s been said and done millions of times that love gets stuck in your head, and you never get tired of it. Well, nothing captures this emotion like Selena Gomez’s track “Love You Like A Love Song”. They hypnotize you, and you think about them whenever you hear a love song.
13. “Nice To Meet Ya” by Niall Horan
If you have had a crush on someone lately and don’t know how to ask them out, you should probably listen to Niall Horan’s “Nice to Meet Ya” for some pointers. The track centers around the innate feeling that accompanies you when you meet somebody but don’t know how to take it ahead. You can probably say: “Nice to meet you/ What’s your name?/ Let me treat you/ To a drink.”
14. “Bad Liar” by Selena Gomez
The ’70s-style “Bad Liar” is a perfect song to include in your playlist when you can’t hide your attraction to someone and find solace in daydreaming. You encounter your crush multiple times during a day but never interact with them.
15. “Teenage Dream” by Katy Perry
The track shows how a girl falls in love with her new crush. Putting a puzzle together, Katy Perry is reminded of her teenage years and dreaming about her charming prince.
16. “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri
This song is beyond beautiful, and its meaning is even more powerful. If you have loved someone for a while and your heart beats fast when he’s around, and you understand the joy of living, that is what this song is about.
17. “Shower” by Becky G
People tend to become the best version of themselves when they find true love. They “light you up inside like the fourth of July. I believe the song reflects how falling in love makes you do all the crazy things, and you think about your crush all the time.
— AnZoRadio (@anzoradio1) January 9, 2022
18. “Girls Like You” by Maroon 5
The track is about the intense passion hinting at the love you feel for someone so badly that spending 24 hours together with them is not enough. The song puts you in a light mood instantly.
19. “Into You” by Ariana Grande
The flirtatious track “Into You” by Ariana Grande describes how sometimes it’s hard to breathe when you are around your crush, and still you want to be closer to them. You want the relationship to be sensual and filled with cuddling and making love.
20. “Girlfriend” by Avril Lavigne
The track is as straightforward as it could get. Avril Lavigne says she could be a perfect girlfriend and wants them to come to you.
21. “Crush” by David Archuleta
This song is relatable on so many levels. “Do you catch your breath when you look at your crush?” I know how that feels. You want to be more than just good friends and take a chance.
22. “Call Me Maybe” Carly Rae Jepsen
“Call Me Maybe” describes the dating world perfectly. You meet someone, you like them, then exchange numbers, but you never know how it’s going to end.
23. “Can’t Blame a Girl for Trying” by Sabrina Carpenter
Sabrina tells the audience that she is not perfect, but in love, no one is. You sometimes tend to act dumb instead. But that is no reason to blame a girl. She is in love, and she wants to explore the possibilities.
24. “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding
The track is about a girl falling in love, making her unable to focus on her work. But she knows that her love is the cure she needs. It takes her high and sets her heart on fire.
25. “High” by The Cure
The radiant track by The Cure will soak you in the euphoria of being in love. You may be far away from your love but yearn to be with them. Your smile fades away when they part from you.
The sparkling melody of this track is quite different from the rest of The Cure’s catalog. Another song that I remember which is quite different to catch on is “Friday I’m In Love”.
I was curious to know what tune Friday I’m In Love is? So I analyzed it in my recent article. Click the link to read about it.
26. “All I Can Do” by Jump 5
Falling in love breaks all your guards down. You don’t feel the need to pretend, and you never want the feeling to end. Your personalities may be like “water” and “oil”, but you still mix. They become your world, and all you can do is think about them.
— Doja Cat Stats (@DojaCatStats) January 6, 2022
27. “Kiss Me More” by Doja Cat (Feat. Sza)
The next track to feature in my 99 best love songs to dedicate to your crush playlist is “Kiss Me More” by Doja Cat. The iconic track captures what a girl wants from her partner. To kiss her more because she is a good kisser. She wants him to make a move.
28. “Lost in Japan” by Shawn Mendes
The single by Canadian singer Shawn Mendes finds Mendes eager and willing to travel hundreds of miles to be with his lover. He misses his love interest so much that he can cross seas for her. Such strong is his love for her.
29. “Kiss You” by One Direction
The boy in the love song wants to know if his love interest feels the same way as he does. He wants to kiss her and take her “home tonight”. He is desperately in love with her and wants to give her everything she desires- which I am pretty sure he is hinting at making love.
30. “Holiday” by Little Mix
The stripped-back dance jam employs the metaphor “holiday” to refer to spending some intimate time with her lover. The girl is happy because her man makes her feel like they are somewhere hot even though they are not.
31. “Hands To Myself” by Selena Gomez
The whole song talks about how you are so attracted to a person that you find it impossible to “keep your hands to yourself.” You just want to keep touching them like you want to mark them.
32. “One More Time” by Britney Spears
Probably one of my favorite songs is Britney Spears’ “One More Time”. The track describes the confusion in teen love when nothing is clear and the loneliness starts to kill you.
33. “Body Rock” by Fifth Harmony
The song describes the deep fire you feel for your little crush and can’t escape the passion. You feel addicted to them, and the overwhelming feeling puts a spell on you.
34. “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran
The song refers to how their imperfect lovers are their perfect soulmates for so many people. This is the kind of love that lasts longer. It teaches so many things. To accept their errors and be able to love them. I think this is one of the most beautiful and best love songs ever written.
35. “Baby I” by Ariana Grande
The girl is in love and wants to send her message to her lover that her love cannot be explained in words.
36. “Wildflower” by 5 Seconds of Summer
The sixth release from 5 Second Summer likely announces his lover’s “wild” and “innocent” nature. And she is the only person who can ignite the fire in the singer.
37. “Crush” by Jennifer Paige
The track is about how couples try to keep their relationship a secret, but their unintended actions tend to slip away their secret that they are more than good friends.
38. “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head by Kylie Minogue
Oh! You just can’t get your crush out of your head. Kylie already knows the feeling.
39. “Can I Be Him” by James Arthur
The lyrics talk about the infatuation for someone you love and envy the relationship they are already in. But you know “they don’t deserve someone else but you.”
40. “I Like Me Better” by Lauv
It sounds a bit cheesy, but it’s true. One starts to like themselves better when they are in love. Probably even spend hours getting ready in front of the mirror to make sure your crush notices you.
41. “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover” by Sophie B. Hawkins
The song is a true love story for Sophie B. She had a good friend trapped in an abusive relationship, and Sophie wished to be her friend’s shoulder to cry on.
42. “Stuck Like Glue” by Sugarland
The comically exaggerated lyric describes how the thought of your crush gets stuck in your mind like glue. You cannot get them off of your mind. But it makes you happy.
— Mandy Moore (@TheMandyMoore) March 19, 2019
43. “Crush” by Mandy Moore
This song is real bubblegum. It’s a song that you cannot avoid singing along to when you have discovered you are crushing on someone special. Mandy Moore will always be Rapunzel to me, but that doesn’t mean she can’t write your favorite song for your first crush.
44. “Clumsy” by Fergie
This song shows how someone feels when they become infatuated with somebody, and they start doing silly things like tripping, slipping, sinking, and fumbling. Still, they can’t help it because it happens unintentionally.
45. “Hey Stephen” by Taylor Swift
The single from Swift’s Fearless album, “Hey Stephen”, is a song Taylor wrote for her little crush. But many are not as fearless as Taylor, who likes to mention the names of their lovers in her songs directly.
46. “One Thing” by One Direction
The song is about trying to get your love interest to notice that you had never felt so strongly about the concept of love before you met them. And they have that “one thing” that no one has.
47. “Sober Up” by AJR feat. Rivers Cuomo
The track doesn’t indicate sobering up from drinking but the love. The track’s point is that you become a different person and develop a new identity as a lover.
48. “Things I’ll Never Say” by Avril Lavigne
This is the most common notion when you start falling in love. There are so many things you want to say but cannot.
49. “Ooh La La” by Britney Spears
The song is all fun. Like “when a guy makes you giddy.” The track is full of scrambled vocals and dense beats that hook you into it.
50. “Girl Crush” by Little Big Town
According to a critic, the song is a jealousy ballad. You cannot see your love interest in the arms of someone else. You just want your crush to be with you.
51. “Domino” by Jessie J.
The song’s meaning is about the girl’s excitement for her recently discovered new crush. They spin you out of control.
52. “Leave Your Lover” by Sam Smith
The self-explanatory track is a request by Sam to his love interest. He wants her to leave the person she is with because he cannot love her the way he can.
53. “Secret Love Song” by Little Mix feat. Jason Derulo)
The song is about being in love, but you are not allowed to give it away in the public eye. Perhaps two celebrities who are deeply in love with each other.
Sucker just hit a BILLION streams on @spotify 🤯 You all are so amazing and we can’t thank you enough for the continued support and love. Thank you to the best fans in the world ❤️🍭https://t.co/NV0VfuPMBE pic.twitter.com/M4xnoikKW3
— Jonas Brothers (@jonasbrothers) October 6, 2021
54. “Sucker” by the Jonas Brothers
The song celebrates the power of a relationship. Your crush has drawn you to them so much that you cannot help but be a “sucker for them.”
55. “Golden” by Harry Styles
The song talks about the joy of being in love in the initial stage. The golden energy keeps overflowing your mind, and the spark cannot be doused until they become yours.
56. “Born To Be Yours” by Kygo & Imagine Dragons
The track simply means that you cannot act yourself but are dependent on your new crush because you feel like you were born for them.
57. “Everytime We Touch” by Cascada
The love song best captures the deep passion you feel for your love interest. Every time you are far away, you feel like a part of you has left.
58. “She Will Be Loved” by Maroon 5
The track stresses the state where the lover admits that he is not perfect. Even though he is a broken soul inside, he will ensure his partner gets the love she deserves. Oh wow. So romantic!
59. “Stay” by Zedd, Alessia Cara
In the song, Alessia asks her lover to stay longer with her. The electronic feel of the song with frantic beats is a danceable number you can turn on on a candle night with your loved one.
60. “Bubbly” by Colbie Caillat
The song represents a relationship and how it changes as time goes by. The tingles you feel when talking to your crush, even when they are sitting miles away from you, put a smile on your face.
61. “No Promises” by Shayne Ward
Basically, when the singer says “no promises” to his lover, he means that she doesn’t need to promise anything to him. She can make him happy just by staying with her.

62. “That’s The Way It Is” by Celine Dion
In this song, Celine Dion advises never to give up on your lover because faith and love can make everything okay. Every relationship goes through hardships. You will even have doubts about your compatibility but work on it together.
63. “I Wanna Grow Old With You” by Westlife
The artist describes the feeling of love at first sight. This is a deep song that means staying by each other’s side “for better or worse.”
64. “I Want It That Way” by Backstreet Boys
You are desperate to express your feelings to your little crush but don’t know how they feel about you. You are two worlds apart but still want them in your life.
65. “Hero” by Enrique Iglesias
The singer talks about how he wants to be the savior of the woman he wants to be with. He also asks her if this is true love? Or has he lost his mind? He is vulnerable in her love but will still try to love her.
66. “Back To December” by Taylor Swift
The song’s storyline is how the singer wants to go back to the past and decide to stay with her crush instead of moving on. Because once it’s late, there is nothing left but to regret your decision.
67. “Shallow” by Lady Gaga feat. Bradley Cooper
Shallow is perhaps one of my favorite songs on this list. It’s about living deep in love and not regretting any of it. The word shallow signifies the time when the couple is with each other.
68. “Fallin’ For You” by Colbie Caillat
The song captures the feeling about the first few weeks of a new relationship with your crush. You keep falling for them in a way you never expected.
69. “You’re Beautiful” by James Blunt
“You’re Beautiful” by James Blunt truly defines what romantic songs about your crush should be like.
The track captures the purest love for that special someone you know is out of your bounds. This idea that they will never be yours leaves you numb. My heart breaks every time I hear the lyrics, “But it’s time to face the truth. I will never be with you.”
It’s a favorite song for sure, especially if there’s a bit of sadness with your situation.
70. “Make You Feel My Love” by Adele
Adele’s song “Make You Feel My Love” is the song that gives the voice to millions of lovers who are unable to express their feelings. And let’s face it, while Adele is known for writing a lot of tearjerker breakup songs, she also writes some of the best songs out there about love.
Here, she is dearly in love with someone and wants the guy so much, and you’d do anything for them to make them happy. But her helplessness is apparent because all she can do is keep herself bottled up.

71. “I Want To Hold Your Hand” by The Beatles
“I Want To Hold Your Hand” by The Beatles talks about the narrator’s desire to be in a romantic relationship with the woman he loves. The singer uses appealing words to woo his lady into accepting him as her dream man. He is convinced that his love for her will go a long way.
72. Cupid’s Chokehold” by Gym Class Heroes (ft. Patrick Stump)
The single performed by Gym Class will make you smile for the one you are smitten. The 2005 release track was said to be an unintentional production. The members of Gym Class never sat down to say, “Okay, let’s write a song.” It just happened. Well, Lucky for fans! They got a song to dedicate to their crushes.
73. “So Into You” by The Atlanta Rhythm Section
The track describes a young man burning out of a passion for the woman he loves and desires her intimately.
It’s to the point that she is driving him crazy and consumes all his thoughts. All he does is think of her. Ohh! Man, how I wish I could move my crush that crazy.
The only one who goes berserk seeing me is my 2-year-old Labra.
74. “First Date” by blink-182
This track perfectly captures the dilemma of going for your first date and thinking how you want your first date to go perfect so badly but cannot help self-doubt yourself. I know we have all related to this feeling at one point in our lives. But don’t worry.
If you like your crush, boys feel self-conscious too. All you need to do is be yourself.
75. “I Wanna Know” by Joe
Personally, this is one of the numbers I first danced to. I think it’s a great romantic song. It’s about how your crush is broken thinking about a past relationship, and now all you want to do is make them happy.
It perfectly describes those stages where you know that you could do everything to make them happy. The only problem is you don’t know what made them cry.
76. “She Drives Me Crazy” by Fine Young Cannibals
The melody of this track by Fine Young Cannibals makes you go nostalgic. This track was THE song to explode in your car’s music system in those days. But seriously, its magic has not faded. This classic hit drives you crazy like no one else. It is also the band’s highest-charting single.
Alexa, play “Love You Out Loud” by Rascal Flatts
Happy National Girlfriend Day, beautiful girl. Your smile lights up my entire world. I love you endlessly 💜 pic.twitter.com/hQ35MHdGNc
— Erica Ann (@ewoolery_) August 1, 2020
77. “Love You Out Loud” by Rascal Flatts
Well! If you have always been a little shy, talk to your crush and never let your feelings show.
Then, you must include this catchy track by Rascal Flatts in your tracklist of 99 songs to dedicate to your crush. This is ultimately the best song. My favorite line is where the singer says, “Baby, I want the whole world to see just how good your love looks on me!”
78. “Me & U” by Cassie
At first, the song sounds like a track about physical pleasures.
But to me, it’s about showing your crush how much you love them and making them happy because sex isn’t the only thing that matters in a relationship. And we all see love differently. I think the singer says that she may have been playing games initially, but she realized that she didn’t want to lose her lover.
79. “U Got It Bad” by Usher
I think this track by Usher is meant for someone who didn’t believe in love first because they just messed around with every girl over a few dates. Until he finds that one girl he could dream his life with, feels obsessed with her now, and is insecure because she might not revert his love- “he doesn’t want to be alone.”
80. “Baby, I Love Your Way” by Peter Frampton
Written and sung by English singer Peter Frampton, “Baby, I Love Your Way” is the first song featured on Frampton’s 1975 album Frampton. This easy rocker track has a summery mood and reminds you of the class 70s pop sound.
81. “Like This” by Shawn Mendes
The simple track by Mendes describes the feeling when you are falling in love. You try so hard not to fall in love with your crush, but as they say, it’s always a battle you can never win.
The guy in the song catches feelings for his friend. He tries to resist, but he fails. This unrequited love track expresses this overwhelming feeling.
82. “Why Don’t You Make Up Your Mind?” by Tame Impala
This 2011 release by Australian band Tame Impala is one of my favorite crush songs. It describes how a simple guy likes a girl, and he’s completely unsure if she likes him too.
He grows impatient and thinks he is wasting his time unless the girl gives him any sign. He cannot decide to move on to a new girl but make her his.
— Kali (@AlwaysMeKali) October 20, 2019
83. “I’m On Fire” by Bruce Springsteen
The track may sound like a pedophile singing it, in its literal sense.
But, in music, the meanings behind a song are profound and need a much more clear mind to understand them. The same can be said about this track; now I’m not sure if I could ever have the guts to tell my crush, “I got a bad desire, and I can take you higher.”
84. “I Can Love You Better” by The Chicks
Another great song you could include in your list of songs about the crush is “I Can Love You Better.”
It’s how every lover feels—watching your crush stay in a relationship with someone else who mistreats him. He, too, is caught up in it only to realize that he deserves better. You have no idea that they will ever realize that you can love them better.
85. “Heartbreak Girl” by 5 Seconds of Summer
My interpretation of the song is that the boy is hopelessly in love with his best friend- who has recently broken up with her boyfriend. And now the friend is having trouble getting over the guy. The boy feels friend-zoned, but all he wants is for her to realize that he loves her.
86. “Breathe” by Faith Hill
The massive crossover by country singer Faith Hill, “Breathe,” will make you fall in love with your crush once again. I think the most comforting lines in the track are the ones that suggest that you feel the world is nonexistent when you are around with your lover.
87. “The Search Is Over” by Survivor
The powerful ballad number of the 80s, “The Search is Over,” is sung by Jim Jamison in his distinctive voice. It’s about finding the one that completes your life. It never gets older. The song is very symbolic and says love can be found in unexpected places.
— NSR (@NSR_broad) September 7, 2018
88. “Imagination” by Shawn Mendes
Mendes never fails to impress his listeners with hard-hitting romantic songs. He mentions a girl who has lived next to his house for his whole life. He hardly ever spoke to her. The guy is too shy to talk to her, so he imagines them together and in a perfect relationship. He wants to tell her everything he feels, but his crush doesn’t know it.
89. “Enchanted” by Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift is the queen of expression.
If you have a crush on someone or have been in love, are heartbroken, felt misunderstood, thinking about reuniting. Taylor has probably already written a song to help you. Enchanted is yet another track that conveys deeper meanings of crushing on someone. The song describes what it feels like to cross paths with your crush.
It chronicles the questions that come to your mind when you see your huge crush for the first time.
90. “Something to Talk About” by Bonnie Raitt
Canadian singer Shirley Eckhard wrote the song, and it was a great success. The track talks about a small-town gossip that has spread about the secret love of the singer and its effects on her. It turns out that the rumored affair is true. The rumor-spreaders keep asking the singer about her love affair to give them “something to talk about.”
91. “She’s Like The Wind” by Patrick Swayze (ft. Wendy Fraser)
The prevailing story behind the track’s meaning is that the singer has issues with self-esteem.
The singer tries to confess his love to the woman of his dreams. He feels she is probably out of his league because she’s too perfect. The couple gets physically close (feel her breath on my face), but to her, it may just well be a platonic love. Kind of bitter, but he nails the song perfectly.
Of course, this is from the classic Dirty Dancing soundtrack.
92. “Take Your Time” by Sam Hunt
The mid-tempo ballad describes Hunt attempting to impress a woman.
He doesn’t know how to move fast and come on strong. The lines in the song direct towards the lady and sincerely describe the interaction between the stranger woman he is in love with and feels shallow due to lack of words.
93. “My Eyes Adored You” by Frankie Valli
The 1974 single written by Bob Crew and Kenny Nolan, “My Eyes Adored You,” is about unrequited love. Valli sings about a woman he loved from his childhood but never went close to her. He thought she was miles away from him. It is such a sentimental song that cannot fail to remind you of your high-school sweetheart.
Westlife — Obvious pic.twitter.com/i1YKFttTxb
— Jaeda Savannah Lacea (@jdnnlacia) September 13, 2019
94. “Obvious” by Westlife
Who wouldn’t remember the third single from Westlife’s fourth studio album, Turnaround?
Written by Pilot, Savan Kotecha, and Andreas Carlsson, Obvious is a romantic song. It peaked at number three on the UK’s single charts and was initially planned to bid farewell to long-time band member Brian McFadden.
95. “Teardrops On My Guitar” by Taylor Swift
And the word-smith is back. “Teardrops On My Guitar” about an unrequited love interest is based on Taylor’s true experience.
She had a crush on a boy since her school days, and he never reciprocated her love as he already had a girlfriend. This is so unfair. Why does it always have to be?
Every time you find someone, they are already involved with someone. This song is one of Taylor’s earliest, so it’s a country song through and through.
96. “Don’t Ever Let It End” by Nickelback
My interpretation is that Nickelback reminisces about a guy who’s in love with someone special but refuses to admit it. He feels that his confession might destroy his friendship. And all he can think in his mind is, “don’t let it end.” According to the lyrics, the girl probably knows that the guy is in love with her but pretends she doesn’t know.
97. “Nobody Love” by Tori Kelly
The lead single from Tori’s debut album emulates the similar problem of pursuing your romantic interest.
Tori teamed up with Swedish hit-maker Max Martin. The song was described by Billboard magazine as “intimidating” and “amazing.” The song’s deeper meaning is how much the young generation is chasing what they want, but nothing is good enough for them.
So, the female narrator asks young lovers to be happy with what they have.
98. “Whenever You Come Around” by Vince Gill
The track has been co-written by American country artist Vince Gill with Pete Wasner. The number is a “beautifully written and impeccably performed” piece. It’s like a sweet ode he wrote for the love of his life- his wife celebrating the eternal bliss of marital life.
99. “Thunder” by Boys Like Girls
The track “Thunder” is about a summer romance never heard of before. The guy feels like he’s trapped. And this girl knows he’s in pain but is scared of expressing her love. Perhaps the romance ended too soon. The lovebirds want to find themselves back and show affection.
Having a crush on someone who is unaware of your feelings- a classmate, a childhood friend, a high school friend, a best friend, or just good friends – is the most painful thing to come across.
The raging hormones in you want to blast off anytime, but you can’t gather the courage to break the silence.
For many, making the bold move to take the lead isn’t always that easy; especially if it’s your first time. You can’t help but hide your emotions and put your best behavior forward.
But the heartache you feel after suppressing what you want to say isn’t healthy.
