The talented Brits really knew how to make our hearts sing.
It's been over half a century since The Beatles took America by storm, but they're still very much in our hearts. And how could they not be? John, Paul, George and Ringo were experts in the love song department, and their heart-warming lyrics resonate with us today just as much as they did in the 60s.
Here are our picks for the top 10 Beatles songs that make us feel the love, romantic or otherwise.
1. "All You Need Is Love"
No matter how many times you hear it, a list of love songs simply isn't complete without this splendid song (and reminder).
2. "Sexy Sadie"
For the woman who can make any man swoon. Men love what she's about, and they will sell everything they own (literally) just to sit next to her.
3. "If I Fell"
We all know how hard it is to fall in love. Some of us have a guard up and some of us have been burned in the past. Whatever the reason, this song shows us it's a universal sentiment.
4. "I Want To Hold Your Hand"
Don't roll your eyes just yet. Holding hands is a simple, intimate gesture that easily expresses love, and sometimes we forget it. It also relieves pain (really). One study showed that the touch or sight of a partner seems to anesthetize women, and even a photograph of their loved one is enough to have an effect. Maybe a song can, too.
5. "All My Loving"
This song is a simple reminder of how sweet love is. "And then while I'm away, I'll write home every day, and I'll send all my loving to you.”
6. "And I Love Her"
It's likely Sir Paul McCartney, as the story goes, wrote this about his long-time girlfriend, Jane Asher, because it's certain he penned it in her parents' home. And it's a ballad lovers have been relating to ever since.
7. "When I'm Sixty-Four"
A "let's grow old together" ditty that makes it easy for us to hope for a love that lasts forever and ever.
8. "P.S. I Love You"
Need we say more?
9. "Hey Jude"
If not for the message (this was about John Lennon's son), then for the memory you have of the very first time you heard this song. And how no matter what, the lyrics and sounds of this song will always take you to a special, happy place.
Frank Sinatra labeled this the best love song ever written, and who are we to disagree with the man?
