A Song For Every Stage of Love, Lust & Beyond

There are two kinds of people: those who are searching for love and liars. Society has drilled this desire for love deep in our minds. The desire to find, attain and enjoy love.  

While you don’t need love to feel complete, we gotta admit that it’s a lot of fun. Whether you’re a hopeless romantic or you find romantic gestures repulsive, you have to agree that finding your person is wonderful. And if that doesn’t happen, you still have a cute crush to gaze at. A win-win, right?

One thing that could perhaps elate the feeling of falling in love is music. A lyrical symphony to accurately describe the butterflies in your stomach. Ahhh, love.

Lucky for you, we’re sharing the perfect song for every stage of love and lust. Add them to your playlist and let’s get it on!

The Crush Stage

The one thing that remains constant from middle school to adulthood is the thrill of having a crush. The brief period of admiring someone from afar can cause sleepless nights and unwelcomed blushing. The whole affair (wink, wink) is up there on the cute-o-meter.
