There are times when we find solace in the most unexpected places. What music teaches us about love, life and relationships may at times be profound. From sultry to practical, these songs hold beneficial advice for those in relationships! The 10 Best Love Songs Of 2011

1) "Say" by John Mayer

Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems,
Better put 'em in quotations

Say what you need to say…
Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open…

True to life, these lyrics are the epitome of sage advice for couples. You find it difficult to say what's on your mind and in your heart. At times, you hold onto everything until it crushes you. So say what you mean and mean what you say. But say what you mean with tact because words, once uttered, can't be undone. 14 Ways To Decode 'Guy Talk' On Dating Profiles

2) "Breakeven" by The Script

Her best days will be some of my worst
She finally met a man that's gonna put her first
While I'm wide awake she's no trouble sleeping
'Cause when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven...even...no

What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you,
And what am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're ok
I'm falling to pieces, yeah,
I'm falling to pieces…

Amazingly real in its description of heartache, when relationships end, sometimes we are caught in a whirlwind of emotions to which we all respond differently. Some of us bounce back rather quickly, much to the surprise of everyone, while some of us never seem to get over the 'one who got away.' We're left wondering and playing the mental 'what if' games that taunt us, resulting in Facebook stalking, weight fluctuations, sleep deprivation and other unhealthy choices. That is, until we come to the realization that maybe it was all for the best.

3) "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Raitt     

'Cause I can't make you love me
If you don't
You can't make your heart feel
Somethin' it won't
Here in the dark
In these final hours
I will lay down my heart
And I'll feel the power
But you won’t, no you won't... 

There are those who stay in relationships knowing that the guy they share their bed with doesn't love them. He's cold. He's distant; he uses your bed when it pleases him to do so. He loves you and leaves you. You know this, but when you share your bed with him all reason fades away. Doubt goes asunder and for mere minutes when he is inside of you, you can quake in his arms. There you can pretend that because he is with you, you are in his heart. You fool yourself. You see the indecision; you see the hesitation behind his words. There is no loyalty, but you succumb to the pleasure he presents, the half life he is willing to give you. Michael Jackson's Greatest Love Songs
