Cuffing season is underway and there’s nothing I love more than seeing people in love. It just brings a certain warmth to my heart, especially when it’s the cute old couples holding hands or sneaking kisses. There’s just something about having that special someone to share your life with. If you want to sweeten the deal, shoot your shot with a playlist dedicated specifically for them. If the love doesn’t feel like 90’s R&B I don’t want it. Shout out to Famous. That being said, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite songs that’ll make you snuggle up close with your special person. Without further adieu, here we go.
The Sweetest Thing- Refugee Camp All Starts feat. Lauryn Hill
This song reminds me of the beginning stages of meeting someone. Where everything was…well sweet. It was all about the simple things. The kisses, the glances, the slight touches that made you smile in the middle of the way with the very thought of them. It’s that intoxicating adrenaline rush when you can’t get enough of someone. Ms. Lauryn Hill’s vocals provide the perfect balance of depth and compassion, and if you listen closely, you’ll find some lyrical gems.
Kissing You- Keith Washington
This is one of those songs that you play when you are deeply in love. Washington’s voice takes you on a musical high as he professes his love. It gives you a reassuring feeling, that you are wanted, needed, and desired. Who doesn’t want that? This song is sure to give the one you love all the feels and I am here for it. Kiss me away Mr. Washington.
Someone to Love- Jon B. and Babyface
Forget the fact that you can’t tell who is who on this song. Believe me, after years of listening I still can’t. Babyface and Jon B. came together on this song about finding that special person you don’t want to be without. It was a realization that their lives are better by having someone to love.
Suddenly from nowhere, baby you appeared
You dried my tears, you cared for me
Baby your love for me, truly rescued me
C’mon lyrics! If someone dedicated this song to me I’d be over the moon. Their smooth voices blend together effortlessly and we all know that Babyface doesn’t make bad songs.
