Love, especially the romantic kind, is the most wonderful and exciting part of being human – as well as the most difficult. It certainly does “take two” – the trick is to get and keep those two on the same page. That’s why so many different types of love songs have been written, about everything from new love to forever love to unrequited love. The list is as endless as the feelings love inspires. Here’s a peek at what each sign likes to hear, no matter what they’re feeling.
This fiery sign doesn’t go for your basic Air Supply type stuff – and don’t ever, ever play Barry for them (Manilow, that is … Barry White will do fine, especially with champagne and chocolates). In particular, they’ll like love songs that have a rock and roll beat to them. Something that reflects their Fire element – like “Fire” by the Pointer Sisters, a classic that will rev them up in all the right departments, or “Fire on High” by ELO. Oh, and if they’re angry? Expect to hear “Love Stinks” (J Geils Band) or “I Will Survive” (Gloria Gaynor).
Taurus natives play for keeps in all departments, and when it comes to romantic love, the person you love belongs to you (in your mind, at least!). You, Taurus, are the personal property of Venus, the Goddess of Love, so the perks of being your companion are excellent. Still, there are two romantic songs that immediately spring to mind when it comes to the type of love Taurus feels: “Always and Forever” (Luther Vandross) and “Let’s Stay Together” (Al Green).
Okay, so everything you’ve ever read about your sign says that you’re fickle. Well, that’s not exactly true. You can be as faithful and reliable as a Taurus, provided you’re amused. That’s not as tough as it sounds. You’re tough, but you’re easy, too, as long as you have a mental equal who understands your need to banter and play. So let’s start with “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” (Animals) for obvious reasons, and to dispel all those rumors about that fickleness, how about “Unforgettable” (Nat King Cole), a tribute to the one ultra-special person they truly must be to have landed you!
Your sign is famous for many things, but what all your traits have in common is an incomparable talent for expressing love and affection. Even romantically, you do it through nurturing, protecting and letting the lucky object of your attention know, in many ways, that you cherish them more than anyone or anything else on the planet. There are two songs that really work for you: “Love Me Tender” by none other than Elvis “The King” Presley, and “Lady,” the ultimate tribute to a loved one, by Lionel Ritchie.
Every sign has its own way of loving, and their own way of treating their loved one. Leo, however, thinks of love the same way this regal, royal sign thinks of everything else: as a magnificent, noble, elegant gift – the best and truest thing any two people can exchange. For that reason, there are two songs that suit your particular style of loving just perfectly: “The Glory of Love” by Bette Midler, and “Shining Star” by Earth, Wind and Fire, which describes their beloved as the Sun, the center of life itself – and Astrology’s very own “shining star.”
You approach love the same way you approach everything else, Virgo, and it’s all reflected beautifully by “What’s Simple is True” (Jewel). In many ways, it’s an ode to the way you live your life: by the basics. You work very hard to keep your life drama-free. No scenes, no crises and as few arguments as possible. You’re also famous for being quite picky, and in the department of romance, that’s something other people really should learn. Once you do find your soul mate, there’s only one song you’d dedicate to them: “Waiting for a Girl [or Guy] Like You” by Foreigner.
In all things romantic, your objective – and your M.O. – remains the same, Libra: to find the right person, entice them to get to know you better and then, if and when things work out, to romance them better than anyone else. The end goal is to find and keep your soul mate. The songs that come to mind for you are “Your Song” by Elton John, and “I Will Always Love You” by Dolly Parton (and many others), a classic that’s inspired more than one proposal.
Say the word “sexy” to any group of astrologers, and their immediate, unanimous response will be “Scorpio.” Obviously, any love song you identify with absolutely must have sexy words and a sexy beat. No sweet stuff here – just a potent, throbbing message, and lyrics that don’t play games. In that department, there are two songs that immediately come to mind: “Private Dancer” by Tina Turner, and “Sexual Healing” by Marvin Gaye. Play those for a new flame. If they appreciate the message, great. If they play them for you first, pick up your jaw discreetly and start thinking about two-bedroom apartments.
You’re a free-wheeling kind of soul, Sagittarius. You always have been and you always will be. For that reason, there are very few love songs that appeal to you. They’ve got to be the kind that reflect: (1) your love of freedom and (2) your secret wish to have the absolutely perfect travel partner on your arm as you patrol the planet looking for the next adventure. So, “Cowboy, Take Me Away” by The Dixie Chicks, regardless of your sweetie’s gender, is perfect for category 1, and “Almost Paradise” (by several artists) is tailor-made for number two.
Your sign’s symbol has always been the Mountain Goat, who easily navigates even the most perilous ridge, showing its penchant for living life on the edge – but safely. So while you take your chances, especially with romance, they’re planned and deliberate. You wait until it’s safe, then go all out to scale that mountain. For all those reasons, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terell is a classic that suits you … your inner desires and your ambition to succeed once you’ve set any goal. Now, there’s one way for you to present yourself, and one thing you ask, hence song number two: “Just the Way You Are” by Billy Joel.
“I’m Real,” by Jennifer Lopez. To be honest, it’s the best song ever written about your sign, and you should hand-deliver it to anyone you’re initially drawn to. The main reason is one line: “What you get is what you see.” You, Aquarius, are the most open, honest and genuine sign out there. Song number two, “The Closer I Get to You” by Luther Vandross, should also be hand-delivered, but not until you’re sure that he or she is the real deal. You know how you get with the independence thing, so until you are sure your love will be returned and your love of freedom will be respected, song number two will have to wait.
The three Water signs are the most sympathetic, understanding and warm-hearted of the twelve signs, and you’re the eldest of the bunch – so if anyone knows how to express love (sometimes to a fault) it’s definitely you, Pisces. That makes choosing love songs a tough job – mostly because no matter what feeling the song describes, you’ve been there. Dozens appeal to your tender hearts, especially when you’re madly, passionately in love, and absolutely spellbound by your beloved. Take, for example, “The Wonder of Love” by Elvis. “Dream Weaver” by Gary Wright reflects your spiritual side and your love of all things magical.
