Romantic Song Suggestions for Your Valentine’s Day Playlist | Rogersville

Music sets the perfect mood on Valentine’s Day or any day. Here are some great love songs to add to your playlist this February 14th.

“Something” from The Beatles

This cut of “Abbey Road” from 1969 was written by George Harrison. It was a love song to Pattie Boyd, Harrison’s first wife, and was first gifted to Joe Cocker. It was good that the Beatles kept it, though. Time magazine called it the best “Abbey Road” track, and John Lennon and “Abbey Road” producer George Martin agreed.

“Unchained Melody” by The Righteous Brothers

Written by Alex North and Hy Zaret, “Unchained Melody” was originally the theme for a 1955 prison movie, “Unchained.” Of the many recordings of this song, the Righteous Brothers version is arguably the most popular, although it has also been recorded by Elvis Presley, Heart, U2, Barry Manilow and others.

“Crazy” by Patsy Cline

Patsy Cline started singing at her local radio station at the age of 15, but became a star with “I Fall to Pieces” in 1961 and “Crazy” in 1962. It was written by Willie Nelson and appears on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. .

“My Girl” from The Temptations

It was The Temptations’ first No. 1 single, inspired by Smokey Robinson’s wife, Claudette Rogers Robinson. He appeared on the 1965 album “The Temptations Sing Smokey”. The song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998.

“Let’s Stick Together” door Al Green

This song reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and remained on the charts for 16 weeks. It has been covered many times, including by Tina Turner in 1983’s “Private Dancer” and Isaac Hayes. He’s also a movie staple, appearing in “Pulp Fiction,” “Higher Learning,” and “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” President Barack Obama performed part of the song during a 2012 appearance at the Apollo Theater.

“I Will Always Love You” by Dolly Parton

Dolly wrote and recorded this song in 1973, originally as a farewell to her former business partner Procter Wagoner. It reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs twice, once upon its release and then again in 1982 as part of the soundtrack to “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”. Whitney Houston recorded and released the song again in 1992 for the movie “The Bodyguard,” and it again spent 14 weeks at No. 1. It’s one of the best-selling singles of all time.
