29 BEST Love Songs For Him – Dedicate These To Your Boyfriend

You love him.

You can’t wait to be around him.

He’s surprised and delighted you on countless occasions.

He’s your boyfriend.

Sometimes, you can barely express your feelings – it’s hard to put them into words.

That’s okay, because we’ve always got music.

Here are the 29 best songs to dedicate to your boyfriend.

“Kiss Me” by Sixpence None The Richer

Song Year: 1998

This song was near unavoidable on late 90s radio.

That might have something to do with the fact that it’s a great song, mind you.

Poetic and romantic, this is the perfect song for your boyfriend if he’s a bit of an intellectual:

“Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight/Lead me out on the moonlit floor/Lift your open hand/Strike up the band, and make the fireflies dance/Silvermoon’s sparkling/So kiss me.”

This song is sure to make your boyfriend feeling weak in the knees.

“Wow” by Kylie Minogue

Song Year: 2008

If your boyfriend keeps you on your toes and never seizes to amaze, you could dedicate this song to him.

It could even be a great song for your crush – just make sure he’s also into you before you send such a strong message.

Every guy loves to feel great about himself and if he knows you mean it, this song will leave him feeling on top of the world.

When that special someone has got a hold of your heart, this is a great song to share.

“Thank God I Found You” by Mariah Carey

Song Year: 2005

Let it be said that there are plenty of romantic Mariah Carey songs you could dedicate to your boyfriend (though if you dig into the lyrics, you’ll often find her songs about love lost).

Anyway, do you ever feel like your boyfriend saved you?

Do you feel like your life was dark until he came into your life?

Did he change everything as you knew it?

If you’re deeply in love, this is a great song to share.

“Heartbeat” by Carrie Underwood

Song Year: 2015

Do you feel like running far away with your lover?

Few songs express this sentiment quite like Carrie Underwood’s “Heartbeat” does.

It can be fun to spend time together in public or at parties, but sometimes you just want to get away together.

“I wanna feel it like a kick drum, beating faster in your chest/I wanna feel you holding onto me and make me hold my breath/You pull me closer, my head on your shoulder, baby we won’t beat the song/We’ll make a fallen star wish, one more slow kiss, what are we waiting on?”

“Love Story” by Taylor Swift

Song Year: 2008

Have you ever wanted to run away with your guy?

Do you wish you would get swept off your feet?

If so, then you’ve found your song.

“Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone/I’ll be waiting, all there’s left to do is run/You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess/It’s a love story baby just say ‘Yes.’”

“What A Girl Wants” by Christina Aguilera

Song Year: 1999

Sometimes you aren’t ready to jump headlong into a relationship.

But over time, as you work through your emotions, there can come a time when you’re ready to embrace new love.

If that describes you, and your man stood by you even as you were preparing for him, then “What A Girl Wants” isn’t too strong a message to send.

If he gets you like no one else, have him listen to this song.

“When I Found You” by Britney Spears

Song Year: 2001

Sometimes it’s hard being alone.

It can feel as though you’re waiting endlessly for someone special to notice you.

And, your life changes in a flash when that man comes into your life.

“When I Found You” is the perfect song when this scenario has played out in your life:

“I found the closest thing to heaven/That’s in you/I found the deepest love I knew/Ooh oh I believe/Yes it’s true/I found myself, when I found you.”

“I’ll Take Care Of You” by The Dixie Chicks

Songs about obession in love

Song Year: 1998

Love isn’t always easy, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad.

At the end of the day, you want to go home to the caring embrace of your loved one.

And, they’ll have their bad days too.

But if you still want to take care of them as you go through thick and thin, this song is for him.

“You Are” by Dolly Parton

Song Year: 1977

This is a simple song about being in love:

“You are my inspiration, you are the song I sing/You are what makes me happy, you are my everything.”

Does your boyfriend give you a reason to get up in the morning?

Does he make your day that much better?

Tell him in a song.

“Teenage Dream” by Katy Perry

Song Year: 2010

People often say relationships make them come alive.

When you meet someone who truly cares about you, that can be the case.

Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” doesn’t mince words in getting this point across.

But if you don’t mind being bold, send your special man a special message:

“My, heart, stops/When you look at me/Just, one, touch/Now baby I believe/This, is, real/So take a chance/And don’t ever look back/Don’t ever look back.”

“I Wanna Love You Forever” by Jessica Simpson

Song Year: 1999

Love can be dramatic.

There can be ups and downs, highs and lows, pleasant surprises and heartbreaking disappointments.

Despite that, you can feel irresistibly drawn to someone.

Jessica Simpson’s “I Wanna Love You Forever” is a good song to share with your boyfriend when you know 100% you’ve found someone to hold onto.

“Feels Like Home” by Chantal Kreviazuk

Song Year: 1999

As this song alludes to, we can all go through periods of loneliness.

But when that special someone enters your life, it can all change in a moment.

And, you can feel even more grateful for them, having waited.

When the right one comes along, it can feel like home.

“Breathless” by The Corrs

Song Year: 2000

It’s hard not to feel uplifted by this expertly written early 2000s pop hit with lush sibling harmonies.

If your man has ever left you feeling breathless, then surely you can relate to this song:

“It’s like a dream/Although I’m not asleep/I never want to wake up/Don’t lose it/Don’t leave it.”

If you’ve found someone like that, you’re one lucky girl, and you should let your boyfriend know.

“Underneath It All” by No Doubt

Song Year: 2001

Underneath it all, they can be lovely.

“Crazy In Love” by Beyoncé

Song Year: 2003

Love can make you look crazy.

That’s because love is often the furthest thing from rationality.

This upbeat number is one of Beyoncé’s signature tunes.

If your boyfriend has you doing things that are out of character, this song is for you.

“I look and stare so deep in your eyes/I touch on you more and more every time/When you leave, I’m begging you not to go/Call your name two or three times in a row.”

“I’m Into You” by Jennifer Lopez

Song Year: 2011

Like “Crazy In Love”, this is a song about love bordering on obsession.

As the narrator says:

“When I look into your eyes, it’s over/You got me hooked with your love controller (yeah)/I’m trippin’ and I could not get over/I feel lucky like a four leaf clover.”

If you feel lucky right now, feel free to share it with your boyfriend.

“Love Me Some You” by Mya

Best Songs To Dedicate To Your Boyfriend

Song Year: 2011

Is your boyfriend the first person you think of when you wake up?

And, the last person you think of before you fall asleep?

Then you’ll probably relate to Mya’s “Love Me Some You”:

“You are the first thing on my mind babe/Last thing I’m thinking I babe/Love me some you, love me some you.”

As this song demonstrates, love can be addicting.

“I Love You” by Avril Lavigne

Song Year: 2011

If you love someone for who they are, not the façade they’ve been hiding behind, then this is a good song to dedicate to your boyfriend.

So often we confuse lust and obsession for love, and for better or for worse, that can be triggered by someone wrong saying the right things.

But if you see through all of that, and love the person you’re with, “I Love You” says it all:

“You’re so beautiful/But that’s not why I love you/And I’m not sure you know/That the reason I love you, is you/Being you, just you/Yeah the reason I love you/Is all that we’ve been through/And that’s why I love you.”

“I Love You Always Forever” by Donna Lewis

Song Year: 1996

This brilliant song was on high rotation on the radio in the mid- to late-90s.

Its message, however, is simple and heartfelt:

“I love you always forever/Near and far closer together/Every where I will be with you/Everything I will do for you.”

If you think you may have found your one and only, it’s okay to dedicate this song to him.

“When You Kiss Me” by Shania Twain

Song Year: 2003

You can’t help but hear wedding bells listening to this song.

And, that’s probably when you should save this song for.

We know the narrator has found someone special, because she’s quick to say:

“I can see you with me when I’m older/All my lonely nights are finally over/You took the weight of the world off my shoulders (the world just goes away).”

When a simple kiss brings unspeakable joy, this is a good song to put on.

“The Way You Love Me” by Faith Hill

Song Year: 2000

Just a simple song about being in love.

Are you in love with your boyfriend?

Do you love watching everything he does?

You couldn’t avoid this song in the early 2000s, which takes advantage of modulation to create that vital “lift” to the song.

“Ooh, I love the way you/Love the way you love me/There’s nowhere else I’d rather be/Ooo, to feel the way I feel with your arms around me/I only wish that you could see the way you love me.”

“I Belong To You” by Whitney Houston

Cute songs for your crush

Song Year: 1990

Love ultimately requires surrender.

You must trust the person you’re with.

You must accept them for who they are.

But it’s a great feeling when you’ve finally found someone to love, to feel like you belong to them.

“You are the flame in my heart/You light my way in the dark/You are the ultimate star/You lift me from up above/Your unconditional love/Takes me to paradise/I belong to you.”

“Only U” by Ashanti

Song Year: 2004

Themes of obsession pick up again in Ashanti’s “Only U.”

But who can hold back a feeling as powerful as love?

It’s okay to be crazy about your boyfriend.

“Boy, you got me doing things that I would never do/And I can’t stop the way I’m feeling if I wanted to/I’m crazy ‘bout the way that you could make me say your name/And if I couldn’t have you, I would probably go insane, ‘cause/Only you can make me feel.”

“Still Into You” by Paramore

Song Year: 2013

Have you been with your boyfriend for a long time?

As this song acknowledges, love isn’t always a walk in the park.

But if you still love him, there’s no doubt he would love your reassurance.

This song is sickly sweet for a band like Paramore, but it offers both a heartfelt and realistic view into relationships.

“I should be over all the butterflies but I’m into you, I’m into you/And baby even on our worst nights/I’m into you, I’m into you/Let ‘em wonder how we got this far/’Cause I don’t really need to wonder at all/Yeah, after all this time/I’m still into you.”

“You’re Still The One” by Shania Twain

Song Year: 1997

Relationships can be challenging.

But that doesn’t mean they aren’t worthwhile.

Love can stand the test of time if you give it a chance.

“You’re Still The One” tells the story of a couple that “took the long way” but stayed together.

Regardless of what’s happened, if your boyfriend is “still the one”, you can dedicate this song to him.

“No One” by Alicia Keys

Song Year: 1997

Sometimes, love can take the form of “us against the world.”

There’s nothing wrong with that.

Many couples who’ve stood the test the time had the same attitude.

If there’s no one in this world that makes you feel like your boyfriend, you can share this song with him:

“You and me together/Through the days and nights/I don’t worry, ‘cause/Everything’s gonna be alright/People keep talking, they can say what they like/But all I know is everything’s gonna be alright.”

“Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding

Song Year: 2015

Does your boyfriend leave you feeling disoriented?

Do you constantly crave his presence?

Have you surrendered to his love?

Then your story might not be unlike the one told in “Love Me Like You Do”:

“Yeah, I’ll let you set the pace/’Cause I’m not thinking straight/My head spinning around, I can’t see clear no more/What are you waiting for?”

“Love At First Sight” by Kylie Minogue

Song Year: 2002

Did I mention that Kylie Minogue has a lot of great songs you could potentially dedicate to your boyfriend?

Well, now you know.

Her songs are sure to leave your boyfriend feeling cared for.

If you believe in love at first sight, and that’s your story, feel free to send this one his way:

“And everything went from wrong to right/And the stars came out to fill up the sky/The music you were playin’ really blew my mind/It was love at first sight.”

It might be an even better pick if your boyfriend is a DJ or a musician.

“When You Say Nothing At All” by Alison Krauss

Song Year: 1988

Do you feel like your boyfriend knows you better than anyone else?

Do you feel like you can communicate without speaking words?

Then this song is for you – and for him:

“The smile on your face lets me know that you need me/There’s a truth in your eyes saying you’ll never leave me/A touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever I fall/Now you say it best when you say nothing at all.”

Love Songs For Him, Final Thoughts

Ultimately, you can dedicate whatever song you want to dedicate to your boyfriend.

No one knows better than you the exact trajectory your relationship has followed.

You likely have inside jokes, your own language, your own way of relating to each other.

But we hope you’ve taken some inspiration from this list and you can at least use it to begin the brainstorming process.

We wish you all the best in your relationship.
