To celebrate Valentine’s Day this year, here are three phenomenal love songs with accompanying music videos that will definitely put you in the mood for LOVE:
1. “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding
As mentioned in a post in People magazine on February 8, 2015, Ellie Goulding Releases Sexy New Fifty Shades of Grey Song, “Love Me Like You Do” is one “steamy song [with] sexy lyrics, sultry vocals and an infectious beat” from the English songstress.
As noted by Lydia Price, author of the post:
“With lyrics like ‘On the edge of paradise/Every inch of your skin is a holy grail I’ve got to find’ the song definitely matches the boundaries-pushing romance of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.”
While the video has been out for little more than a week, it has already garnered over 41 million views on YouTube!
Here’s the video:
2. “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran
“Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran is an enchanting love song made all the more special by the sensually-sensational music video in which Ed himself appears with his dance partner, Brittany Cherry.
“And it’s not just any old appearance,” notes Julia White on the blog, Yahoo! Celebrity “– as he makes the fan world melt with a load of emotionally-loaded dance moves, whilst wearing a benedict Cumberbatch-style waistcoat.”
In the song itself, you’ll hear these lyrics:
People fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Well, me I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am
It’s definitely worth watching the brief behind-the-scenes video about the making of the music video for “Thinking Out Loud” to be inspired by the challenges – and head-bashing – Ed overcame to create a truly stunning music video for the song with his extraordinary team of choreographers and producers.

Here’s a snippet of the lyrics from “All of Me” that beautifully capture the range of emotions inherent in any intense relationship:
What’s going on in that beautiful mind
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright
My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind
