SONGS TO SWOON The Top 12 Songs to Woo the Ladies
Music is a beautiful art that can reach a vast range of emotions in an individual. The best part about it is that the creative freedom doesn’t end with the artist; it extends to the audience as well. Take a post-hardcore banger with screaming and more distortion than you can imagine. Due to its sound, most would assume it’s about violence and pain, but contrary to popular belief, it carries a deeper meaning about long distance relationships and is a tribute to dedication and love. That may not be your particular style, but we all want to express these emotions to the ladies we care about. There is nothing better than impressing the ladies, whether it be through our words, actions or emotions. But what would it look like to move that special someone with all those things at once? With a few chords and the instrument of your choosing, learn one of the following songs that are guaranteed to make women swoon:
12. Tenerife Sea- Ed Sheeran
This scruffy ginger has quite the way with words which never fails to tug on the heartstrings. This song is written from the perspective of a groom who is watching his wife on their wedding day. The melody line of the song reminds us of waves in the ocean which may have resonated with Sheeran, leading to the title Tenerife Sea. Call it a wedding song or just something to play, this tune is sure to bring out the love.
11. Say You Won’t Let Go- James Arthur
James Arthur was a no-name artist before showing his skills on Britain's Got Talent. With his first opportunity to produce a single, he made this amazing piece about the progression of life with a lady you love. Starting from a long night of partying all the way to existing as ghosts, he pleads that his love is eternal and begs that she won’t let go of him in her life. Show her how much she means to you by belting out this impressive chorus.
10. Bless the Broken Road - Rascal Flatts
The high tenors of Gary LeVox by themselves make the ladies go crazy, but when you add his voice to the melodic keys, you get the 2004 wedding song of the year. Rascal Flatts covered the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s, “Bless the Broken Road,” so why can’t you? This song speaks about the bumps and bruises that lead you to the love of your life. What says, “I love you,” better than a song about the terrible relationships you had before her? I’m just not sure.
9. Your Man - Josh Turner
I don’t know what it is about bass notes that drive people crazy, but this man’s voice sure hits a special feeling in women. Stretch your range into the lower octaves and soothe your girl’s mind with this catchy song. When she hears “turns me on” come out of your mouth, something is surely to happen that will sweep her off her feet.
8. A Thousand Years - Christina Perri
This song was made famous by the soundtrack of the famed vampire series Twilight. The lyrics alone speak volumes about love and what a relationship means, but could you imagine understanding that same meaning without hearing a single spoken word? Take a listen to the Piano Guys cover and learn this instrumental to make ladies hearts melt. It may seem a little soft, but nothing is sexier than a man mastering a musical skill.
7. Love Is a Verb - John Mayer
Just about anything you hear come out of John Mayer’s mouth makes you a happier person, but this song in particular says a lot about what love actually is. Show your significant other that love is more than a word by learning this song for her. Demonstrate your love and she will give it right back.
6. Ride - SoMo
There is really only one way to describe this song effectively; baby making music. If you can sing, find someone who can play piano. If the vocal cords aren’t strong enough, work out the fingers on a piano or guitar. Any medium you use, this song will bring out some strong feelings that may need to be acted upon sooner rather than later.
5. Still Into You - Paramore (Ashley Tisdale cover)
Not that Paramore doesn’t do a good job with this song, but the slow pace and calm melody done in this cover provoke a slightly stronger emotion. These words speak about the feeling of love over such a long span of time, no matter what has happened. No matter how long you’ve been with her, this song will drive her crazy and make her fall head over heels.
4. Can’t Help Falling In Love - Elvis Presley (Twenty One Pilots cover)
If classic tunes are more your style, Elvis has your back. His famed love ballad talks about the irresistibility of falling in love with “the one.” No matter how hard you try, you can’t fight that feeling deep inside you. Take the original approach, or try the Twenty One Pilots cover. No matter what your preference is, the water works will be flowing from her eyes.
3. Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton
This 1988 ballad has a simple set of lyrics that just hits home with any woman. A simple phrase and a catchy guitar riff made girls of all ages go crazy for Eric Clapton. Be the new Eric Clapton and serenade your lady by saying how wonderful she looks tonight.
2. The Girl - City and Colour
Our girls often get upset when we have to be away for work, leisure or any reason at all. Not that it’s anyone’s fault, but stuff happens and we can’t be together all the time. This song talks about our appreciation of her patience and explains that no matter where we are, we are still hers. Express your appreciation and loyalty with this heartfelt acoustic tune.
1. Hold Each Other - Great Big World
I don’t know what it is about big, bold glasses and singers but they sure do produce a lot of sentimental songs. This rhythmic jam is about how that one person in your life can make everything feel better. Whether we know it or not, there is always someone out there for us. Ask her on a date, or just play this jam; you won’t know until you take the risk!
