Some people collect stamps, or sports memorabilia, or Pez dispensers.
I collect love songs.
But not cheese-tacular junk like “My Heart Will Go On” or “Lady in Red.”
We’re talking modern, upbeat songs about real love—no heartbreak or unrequited love in this round-up.
Which makes my little unknown love songs collection the PERFECT ready-made Valentine’s Day gift from you to your honey.
Plus, these songs are so good you’ll want to add them to your own everyday playlist.
For an easy DIY Valentine’s Day gift that’ll get you major brownie points, buy a few of the love songs listed below and follow my tutorial on how to share a playlist. Wrap your playlist, maybe throw in a box of chocolate, and you’re done!

1. Stuck on You† by Meiko
‘Cause you are the one I could see having fun with
Not just for the night, but for the rest of my life
You are the one I could never be done with
I want you tonight and for the rest of my life
2. Love Love Love (Let You Go) by Andy Grammer
No defenses I’m too deep for common sense
Well it’s love, love, love, love, love
Oh my I’m so delighted; I don’t try to even fight it
I think you should know that I will never let you go
3. The Little Things by Carlos Bertonatti
Run, run, run
Underneath my pillow case
And come, come, come
Closer to me, yeah
If life has taught me anything
It?’s all about the little things
4. Overwhelmed by Tim McMorris
I could sing a thousand songs about you, still that would not do
There’s a million tiny things that make the things that you do, you
I wouldn’t trade our time together, wouldn’t trade for anything
‘Cause nothing else here in the world can bring the happiness you bring
5. Thank You by Mozella
You fight off my enemies
You’d take a bullet for me
And you know I’d do the same for you
‘Cause that’s how we roll
Connected at the soul

So if you choose always me
I’ll make a promise to choose all of you
And if you will follow me now
I’ll be always there to follow you

Can’t understand the things you do
Nothing turns out the way we planned
You’re still my baby, and I’m still your man
8. Love by Matt White
And I, I, I, I, I…I can feel it in your kiss
It just gives me tender bliss
What is love, what is love?
I just want it to be love
9. Lucky by Kat Edmonson
Feels like this
Your heart upon your sleeve
There’s a place
In time and space
Where we can all be free
10. 3 Rounds and a Sound by Blind Pilot
They’re playing our song
They’re playing our song
Can you see the lights?
Can you hear the hum
Of our song?
11. Brand New Day by Tim Myers
Open your sleepy eyes
Make up the bed now
Kissing your face again
Coffee is waiting
12. You Are the Only One I Love by Jaymay
The first thing that you said to me was
“Jamie I love you, Jamie I love you, Jamie, Jamie, I love you”
And I’ve never been one to believe in love at first sight
But now I know it exists
13. Love Is What You Are by Old 97’s
Love is what you are
Not what you do
I know what you are
And I love you
14. Don’t Let Me Fall by Lenka
You’re just the one that I’ve been waiting for
I’ll give you all that I have to give and more
But don’t let me fall
Don’t let me fall
