TIFEM’s All Time LOVE Jams

This Valentine’s, we thought it would be a great idea to compile a list of our top 14 favorite all time love songs.

In many ways, the relationship of one to another in love is a lot like the relationship between a pretty melody and an eloquent lyric, or a moving rhythm and a riff. Two entities dancing together in time, complimenting and shadowing each other to create something greater than the sum of it’s parts.

Of course, throughout the years there have been so many musical expressions of love that it’s almost impossible to choose a list that’s going to make everyone happy.

Speaking of happy, we also thought it fair game to select not only the songs about the good times for lovers and friends, but also some of those songs about the nasty side of love. The unfortunate, unrequited type of love that makes you want to turn the volume up to eleven, just to drown out the noisy thumping of the heart.
