Love is one of those emotions that can make you feel like you’re either on top of the world or like you need to look up to see the roots of grass growing. As a result, songs that are related to love are just as varied as the emotion itself. In fact, there are more than a few songs from the 1990s about love that are so uplifting, they’ll make you feel like you can practically conquer the world. By the same token, there are at least as many that will have you reaching for a box of tissues in no time.
Below are 10 of the best songs about love recorded during the entire decade. Just for fun, they’re rated from number 10 all the way to number one, complete with a YouTube link so you can listen for yourself. Keep in mind, your personal favorite might land somewhere else on this list. Perhaps you even have a favorite that isn’t listed, one that you can add to the group for your own listening enjoyment.
10. Because You Loved Me (Celine Dion)
Who doesn’t love any song performed by Celine Dion? This is definitely one of her best. It’s also an incredibly sweet way to pay homage to the relationship that blossoms when love takes hold. It is a beautiful song about being able to conquer anything that comes your way, all because you have the love and support of someone special.
9. Amazed (Lonestar)
Even for those who don’t necessarily consider themselves country music fans, this is a song that’s worth checking out. It centers around being so in love with another person that it’s hard to believe they even exist. Any person who has ever been fortunate enough to have a relationship like that will love this song, no matter which genre of music they usually listen to.
8. I Want It That Way (Backstreet Boys)
Who hasn’t daydreamed about finding the perfect love? Truth be told, it’s something that an overwhelming number of people spend a great deal of time thinking about. Why? Love can genuinely change everything in a person’s life. That’s precisely what this song is all about.
7. When You Believe (Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey)
Just like the title of the song implies, nothing is truly impossible when you believe that there is even the slightest chance it could happen. In this particular case, it’s all about love. As long as you believe that you can have that kind of love, you can. By the same token, you can also believe that love can change the entire course of your life for the better. This is a beautiful song that attests to these truths and fully celebrates them.
6. From This Moment On (Shania Twain, Bryan White)
Think about finding that one person who is most special to you. Now imagine that your life together is only just beginning. This song serves as a deep dive into learning to live as one. It’s no longer about two people living individual lives, but instead two people who share their hearts and souls as one.
5. Right Here Waiting (Richard Marx)
Sadly, there are those times when all the love in the world doesn’t make things go as smoothly as you would like. This is a melancholy song about loving someone so much that you choose to wait for them, no matter where they are or what they’re doing. In a manner of speaking, it’s about love that is so pure, nothing can change it, even to the point of waiting an entire lifetime for someone who may never be ready.
4. I Swear (All-4-One)
This is a song about promising to do everything that is right by the person you love. It tells a sweet story about making the kinds of promises you keep, no matter how hard it gets to do so. The song is all about promising to be there for another person, through anything and everything that life has to offer.
3. My Heart Will Go On (Celine Dion)
This is one of the saddest songs ever written. It centers around the two main love interests in the movie “Titanic,” but the lyrics fit any person who has ever loved someone with their entire heart and then lost that person. The very idea of losing the person you love more than anyone else in the world is absolutely terrifying, not to mention heartbreaking. It tells the story of finding a way to survive through the pain, all while holding the memory of the person you’ve lost close to your heart forever.
2. I Will Always Love You (Whitney Houston)
This is another song about loving someone your entire life, even when the two of you can’t be together. In this particular case, it’s about someone who moves on from the relationship in question. Sometimes, love may not work out. However, that doesn’t always mean that one or both individuals don’t still feel an intense connection to one another, even if being together isn’t in their best interest.
1. I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing (Aerosmith)
Isn’t it amazing how something as simple as spending a few extra minutes laying next to a loved one can transform your entire day? That’s precisely what this song is about. It might be something a lot of people would take for granted, but it truly is a beautiful thing. It also serves as a testament to the ability of love to make something that was once mundane become the most magical experience in the world.
