Songs have the power to evoke an atmosphere and transport us back in time. For example, when I hear "The Way We Were" by Barbara Streisand, I'm instantly whisked away to my childhood home on Long Island. The song's lyrics capture a specific moment- the setting sun over the ocean, two teens falling in love for the first time, and make it feel accessible to anyone who has ever experienced love.

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we've decided to put together a list of some of our favorite classic love songs. Whether you're looking for a ballad for your wedding day or simply want to have a good cry on your significant other's shoulder, we've got you covered.
