10 Best Love Songs of 2018 So Far
From sexual freedom, to sacrifice, and self-confidence—a good love song can say a lot more than just a declaration of simple attraction. Janelle Monae, Kacey Musgraves, and even the late Prince have released songs in 2018 so far that have transcended the emotion into something greater, more complex, and ultimately more human.
G Flip – “About You”
You don’t need me to tell you that love isn’t perfect. Even the best relationships will eventually have their first fight. G Flip’s “About You” details the moments after a fight, where the choice is to try to make it better or just walk away.
Yuno – “No Going Back”
Sometimes the most important moment of any relationship is firmly making the decision to end it.
Troye Sivan – “My My My!”
It’s love summed up in three words—the same three words, in fact. This simple exclamation expressed with such passion by Troye Sivan feels so pure, so contagious that you don’t even need the qualification “living for your every move.”
Kacey Musgraves – “Butterflies”
Remember when Taylor Swift used to sing about love instead of fake news? That’s the warm world that Kacey Musgraves transports you to with the sunny “Butterflies.”
Janelle Monae – “Make Me Feel”
Let’s be honest: Love can best be boiled down to the free sexual energy of Janelle Monae’s “Make Me Feel.”
Yo La Tengo – “For You Too”
Sometimes being in love means bettering yourself for someone else. And that’s what Yo La Tengo offers in four simple verses.
Amber Mark – “Love Me Right”
As Amber Mark explains, it’s not enough to just tell someone you love them. You have to show it in more physical and emotional ways than just words.
Kali Uchis – “In My Dreams”
About mid-way through Kali Uchis’s excellent new album, there’s a little eight-bit indie rock song that completely deviates from the rest of the record. It’s like some oasis of perfection, where Uchis describes a utopia where she’s with her dream boy and “mama’s never on coke.”
Snail Mail – “Pristine”
As much as Big Hallmark and most rom-coms want you to believe otherwise, it’s very hard to be certain about anything when it comes to love. That’s why it’s so impressive that 18-year-old musical prodigy Lindsey Jordan knows exactly what she wants. Say what you will about the naiveté of youth, but maybe ignorance makes things a whole lot simpler.
Prince – “Nothing Compares 2 U”
Yes, this was written in 1984, but the first original studio recording of Prince’s version of “Nothing Compares 2 U” is, 34 years later, the best love song of the year.
