Romantic films are quite a popular genre, but what makes one of these movies stand out from the rest is the soundtrack. Songs and music are very important in films to get the audience feeling the right emotions. There are a lot of romantic movies out there, all with their own set of love songs included in the soundtrack.
But there are only a select few that are the best of the best and really make us remember the song and the movie for years to come. Some songs that were coupled so well with the scene of the movie that makes the audience want to buy both the movie and the song. There is pretty much never a bad time to watch a romantic movie!
With so many love songs from movies, it can be difficult to choose just some of the best. But have a read on below at just a few of the most popular love songs from movies:
Everything I Do (I Do It For You) by Bryan Adams, from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
This track spent a pretty significant amount of time at #1 so it certainly deserves a spot on this list. While you might not really think that Robin Hood: Prince of Thieve is a romantic film per se, but the track, Everything I Do (I Do It For You) really helps make the moment in the film much more romantic.
My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion, from Titanic
Who can forget this 1997 romantic classic? It is a movie that many still watch to this day and it was a massive hit for both Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio. The song works so perfectly well in the movie and the flute at the beginning is so recognisable it starts to make everyone teary, because you know how this ends.
It Must Have Been Love by Roxette, from Pretty Woman
Another classic 1990’s romantic film that has certainly been able to stand the test of time, it’s got a stellar cast and stellar soundtrack. The audience was taken on a rollercoaster ride and the scene where Julia Roberts’ character leaves Richard Gere’s character, with It Must Have Been Love playing in the background is truly heartbreaking.
Take My Breath Away by Berlin, from Top Gun
While Top Gun really doesn’t fall under the romantic film’s genre, it still has a few romantic undertones throughout. The song Take My Breath Away was actually written specifically for this movie and the moment is so iconic that people remember it to this day, even though the movie was released in the 1980’s.
Shallow by Lady Gaga, from A Star Is Born
A Star Is Born is as 2018 musical film and a remake of the 1976 version, starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson. If there is a list with the most romantic love songs from movies, there is just no way that Shallow cannot be excluded. The song and film coupled together to make something even more extraordinary, which will surely stand the test of time.
Unchained Melody by Righteous Brothers, from Ghost
It’s certainly not hard to forget THAT clay scene, even people who haven’t seen the movie still have heard about that particular scene. The song playing during this scene is Unchained Melody by Righteous Brothers, and the song helps take not only that one scene but also even the whole movie, to another level. It has a star-studded cast as well, which doesn’t hurt, with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze playing the two lead characters.
