5 Amazing old love songs you should listen to again

Must read

Add these 5 amazing old love songs from the 1980s to your playlist. They are one of the best love songs ever recorded, from new classics to timeless romantic cuts.

1. Crazy for you Madonna

This is one of the amazing old love songs on our list. “Crazy for You” is a song recorded by American singer Madonna for the film vision quest (1985). One of Madonna’s best love songs that earned Madonna her first of many Grammy Award nominations.

Crazy For You Lyrics

Swaying room as the music starts
Strangers making the most of the dark
Two by two their bodies become one

I see you through the smokey air
Can’t you feel the weight of my stare
You’re so close but still a world away
What I’m dying to say, is that

[Chorus:]

I’m crazy for you
Touch me once and you’ll know it’s true
I never wanted anyone like this
It’s all brand new, you’ll feel it in my kiss
I’m crazy for you, crazy for you

Trying hard to control my heart
I walk over to where you are
Eye to eye we need no words at all

Slowly now we begin to move
Every breath I’m deeper into you
Soon we two are standing still in time
If you read my mind, you’ll see

[chorus]

It’s all brand new, I’m crazy for you
And you know it’s true
I’m crazy, crazy for you

2. How deep is your love by Bee Gees (1977)

The second amazing old love song is by Bee Gees. The Bee Gees were a music group formed in 1958, featuring brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb.

“How Deep Is Your Love”

I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again

And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love then you softly leave
And it’s me you need to show
How deep is your love

How deep is your love,
How deep is your love
I really mean to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You’re the light in my deepest darkest hour
You’re my saviour when I fall
And you may not think
I care for you
When you know down inside
That I really do
And it’s me you need to show
How deep is your love

How deep is your love,
How deep is your love
I really mean to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love then you softly leave
And it’s me you need to show
How deep is your love

How deep is your love,
How deep is your love
I really mean to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me
[Repeat fading out]

3. I Want To Know What Love Is by Foreigner (1984)

I Want to Know What Love Is” has continued to garner critical acclaim, and is listed as one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s greatest songs of all time. Definitely one of the old love song that we can’t neglect.

“I Want To Know What Love Is”

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
Through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I’m gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I’ve got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
I can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is
And I know, I know you can show me

Let’s talk about love
I wanna know what love is, the love that you feel inside
I want you to show me, and I’m feeling so much love
I wanna feel what love is, no, you just cannot hide
I know you can show me, yeah

I wanna know what love is, let’s talk about love
I want you to show me, I wanna feel it too
I wanna feel what love is, I want to feel it too
And I know and I know, I know you can show me
Show me love is real, yeah
I wanna know what love is…

4. Total eclipse of my heart by Bonnie Tyler (1983)

The song became Tyler’s biggest career hit, topping the UK Singles Chart, and becoming the fifth-best-selling single in 1983 in the United Kingdom.

“Total Eclipse Of The Heart”

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you’re never coming round
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you’ll only hold me tight
We’ll be holding on forever
And we’ll only be making it right
Cause we’ll never be wrong together
We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time (all of the time)
I don’t know what to do and I’m always in the dark
We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever’s gonna start tonight
Forever’s gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I’m only falling apart
There’s nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there’s only love in the dark
Nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit restless and I dream of something wild
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit helpless and I’m lying like a child in your arms
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit angry and I know I’ve got to get out and cry
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit terrified but then I see the look in you eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you’ll only hold me tight
We’ll be holding on forever
And we’ll only be making it right
Cause we’ll never be wrong together
We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time (all of the time)
I don’t know what to do and I’m always in the dark
We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever’s gonna start tonight
Forever’s gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I’m only falling apart
There’s nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart

A total eclipse of the heart
A total eclipse of the heart
A total eclipse of the heart
A total eclipse of the heart

5. All my life by K-Ci & JoJo

“All My Life”

Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby

I’m something better

I will never find another lover sweeter than you
Sweeter than you
And I will never find another lover more precious than you
More precious than you

Girl you are close to me you’re like my mother
Close to me you’re like my father
Close to me you’re like my sister
Close to me you’re like my brother

And you are the only one
You’re my everything
And for you this song I sing

And all my life I prayed for someone like you
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
All my life I prayed for someone like you
And I hope that you feel the same way too
Yes, I pray that you do love me too

I said you’re all that I’m thinking of, baby

Said, I promise to never fall in love with a stranger
You’re all I’m thinking of, I praise the Lord above
For sending me your love, I cherish every hug
I really love you so much

And all my life, baby, baby, I prayed for someone like you
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
All my life I prayed for someone like you
And I hope that you feel the same way too
Yes, I pray that you do love me

You’re all that I ever know
When you smile, on my face, all I see is a glow
You turned my life around
You picked me up when I was down

You’re all that I ever know
When you smile, my face glows
You picked me up when I was down

I’m telling you
You’re all that I ever know
When you smile, my face glows
You picked me up when I was down

And I hope that you feel the same way too
Yes I pray that you do love me too

And all my life I prayed for someone like you
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
All my life I prayed for someone like you
Yes, I pray that you do love me too

All my life I prayed for someone like you
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
All my life I prayed for someone like you
Yes, I pray that you do love me too

All my life I prayed for someone like you
And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
All my life I prayed for someone like you
Yes, I pray that you do love me too
