20 Best Love Songs About Him

By Brian

Every song is about love in some way. But not every love song (on this list) is about women or girls; there are plenty of songs whose lyrics are dedicated to the message of finding true love.

Love songs about men are an important part of the romantic music industry. And, for many women, songs whose lyrics are dedicated to love for a man help express their own loving feelings. For men, songs with lyrical messages about women can be touching and beautiful to listen to.
