Few things express love better than music.
Singing to your girlfriend or to a crush will let her know how you feel in a way that is far more special than merely saying the words.
But you can’t sing just any song.
Ideally, you want to serenade your girlfriend with a song she loves, but the message is perhaps even more important.
That’s why you can sing a style of music she doesn’t usually like and she’ll be just as thrilled, as long as the message is right.
Just the fact that you’re putting yourself out there like that will mean so much to her.
You don’t have to be an amazing singer either. In fact, you can be terrible and she’ll still love it. But I do recommend checking out some of my tips in this article on learning to sing.
Almost anyone can sing, and just working on the basics for a few hours will have you sounding much better.
Because you want your song to communicate the right message, I’ve included songs below to fit many different occasions. I’ve also tried to include multiple musical styles.
Some of the songs are easy, while others are a bit more challenging. They cover many vocal ranges, too. Check out the list below and hopefully you’ll find the perfect song to sing to your girlfriend.
