15 Modern Day Love Songs That Will Melt Your Heart ...


There’s nothing like a good love song to pull on your heart strings, and as good as the old ones are, there are some modern day love songs that provide stiff competition.

As much as the music has changed, the message is the same — love, being in love and letting the person you love know about it.

If you are in the mood for feeling all gooey or have got someone special on your mind, then take a listen to these 7 modern days love songs and let the love flow!

1. The Lumineers - Ho Hey

After Jeremiah Fraites' (drums) brother died in 2011 he and his friend Wesley Schultz (guitar/ lead vocals) found solace in music.2

The two boys eventually moved to Colorado from NYC and found their final band member Neyla Pekarek on Craigslist.

11 years on and Spotify has named The Lumineers' first single ‘Ho Hey’ as the third most played song in the US.

This is one of my favorite modern day love songs, and it proves that less is always more, with simple lyrics and a catchy rhythm.2

'Ho Hey' steals your heart at first listen.

2. Adele - One and Only

You knew it was bound to happen.

How could I write a list of modern day love songs and not include one of Adele’s songs?

This song is heartbreakingly beautiful and full of soul, the kind of song that gets you all teary just by listening to it (not that I would know or anything… tissue anyone?)...

3. Lana Del Rey -Video Games

First released on the internet in 2011, Lana Del Rey’s ‘Video Games’ is a slow, dark, modern day love song that reached the top ten on the charts in over 10 countries worldwide.

Maybe a little too ominous for some people’s tastes, ‘Video Games’ saturates you in nostalgia, setting your mind wondering to the matters of your heart.
