TLDR; our team has curated our favorite 50 love songs to set the mood and spice up your love life. See the detailed song list below or access the playlist on Spotify.

At Zeta, our team is constantly thinking about how we can help couples and families thrive. And while we usually build financial products to help couples master money as a team, we wanted to do something a little different. So we asked around, and asked some more, and pulled together our favorite list of love songs from the 80s to present day. Want us to add something to the list? We’re game! Just drop us a note.

The Top 50 Ultimate Love Songs

Without further ado, here’s our top 50 love songs, shuffled not stirred. For good measure, we threw in a few you-shoulda-known-better songs and added our favorite lyrics from each song.
