Let love fill the air and fall head-over-heels for these 10 songs that are SURE to make your significant other fall in love with you all over again.
10) “Please come to Boston” by David Allen Coe
“I’m the number 1 fan of the man from Tennessee”

9) “Cannibal Queen” by Miniature Tigers
“Not a test or an SOS”
For all the peoples who have significant others that stick around when they don’t have to.

7) “Little Spoon” by Andrew Blodgett
“I love you to the moon”
Written by one of UTD ’s own, Blodgett conveys the simplistic idea of love. With this song, it’s hard to hear and not think of your significant other with a smile on your face.

6) “Rollercoaster” by Bleachers
“Those endless nights that we traveled we stole”
This speaks to the fact that love doesn’t have a linear path. It has ups and downs and sometimes isn’t easy to do, but you keep going because…… well you love them. This is about someone that takes you to the edge; that thrill of love someone that whenever your with you feel that rush only a rollercoaster can give you. They may not be the best for you, but there no doubt that whenever you’re with them there’s never a dull moment.
5) “Ooh” by Jon Bellion

4) “Valentine” by Atlas
“You’re the ice that’s glistening inside my cup of tea, which is also you… interesting”
This song truly speaks for itself; a short song that expresses the reason your significant other is your significant other. From start to finish, this lo-fi rap song is all business, and Atlas does not beat around the bush about how much this romantic intimacy means to him. This is simply a song that just has a very ‘Atlas’ way of saying “I love you”.
3) “24/7/365” by Surfaces
“You’re Mr. Wrong, I’m Mrs. Right”
All about that mystery couple, the person that seems to be at every party and you don’t know how or why they are with you but you’re lucky they are. Describing the night these two met, Surfaces leads the listener down a lyrical path of a night of love.
2) “Stay” by The Hails
