More often than not the journey a newlywed couple embarks upon begins with the Honeymoon. It is the time of love, the time of passion and the time where gestures are sometimes more than words. But what better way to confess your feelings to your beloved than through music; through songs that relate everything that you probably would have wanted to? So here is a list of love songs to listen on your Honeymoon!
10. Always (Bon Jovi):
A classic in its own right, ‘Always’ by Bon Jovi, has this innate feeling of longing hidden in it. When you are yearning for moments of togetherness with your soul mate; Bon Jovi’s ‘Always’ is sure to touch the cords of eternal emotions.
9. I wanna grow old with you (Westlife):
Yes, I know boy bands can be mushy but mushy is what you need on a honeymoon; don’t you? I wanna grow old with you is a wonderful song by Westlife; more so for the lyrics which are absolutely apt for expressing feelings to a loved one.
8. I Want to Hold Your Hand (The Beatles):
Well, you cannot have a list of all-time favourite love songs to listen on your honeymoon and even otherwise and not include one by the Beatles? Yes, it’s not the Glee version but the original track by the masters themselves; that unequivocally has to be one of the top songs to be featured in this list.
7. The Way You Look Tonight (Frank Sinatra):
Frank Sinatra has given us a hoard of wonderful songs and among them ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ is something that touches the sensibilities of a true romantic; especially when on honeymoon. So yes this is another marvellous song that has to feature in this list.
6. Unchained Melody:
The ‘Unchained Melody’ is just like the feeling of unchained love for the first time. The song gives me goose bumps every time I listen to it. It is soulful, melodious and loaded with emotions! What better way to spend an evening on the honeymoon than slowly gliding to its tunes in the arms of the one you love?
5. You’re the First, the Last, My Everything (Barry White):
Not many singers have the panache that Barry White had in his songs. ‘You’re the First, the Last, My Everything’ is a brilliant song; one that very much deserves to be on this list.
4. Truly, Madly Deeply (Savage Garden):
When you are truly, madly and deeply in love which song do you listen to? Of course; its Savage Garden’s soulful piece of magic woven into music ‘Truly, Madly Deeply’. When there is talk of love; this song has to be included without any reservations!
3. Tonight I Celebrate My Love (Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack):
Picture yourself on a candle light dinner near the beach when this song suddenly plays on the background and you dance slowly under the moonlit sky with your partner. Wonderful isn’t it? This song is one of the best R&B duets ever; one that oozes romance and love.
2. Everything I do (Bryan Adams):
Well, well you wouldn’t expect a list of love songs without ‘Everything I do’ by Bryan Adams, would you? It is perhaps one of those songs that reaches straight to your heart and hence deserves a mention on this list.
1. We’ve Only Just Begun (Carpenters):
It’s a song about a couple setting off on life’s path together and thus perfectly befitting as a honeymoon song. This song catapulted the Carpenters to stardom and frankly very aptly so.
