There are more to love songs than the sweet mellow voices of the singer, and the mood it puts you in. There are lessons to be learnt. So here are 10 relationship advice that love songs offer from love songs from pop to rhythm and blues.

- I Got You Babe by Sonny and Cher

This is a fun-loving classic that we all love because the message is

simple and resonates throughout all generations, love your significant other no matter what.


All of Me by John Legend

We all fell in love with this beautiful song. It will be a love song for the ages, not just because of John Legend's seductive voice, but because of the message. It's about loving 100 per cent with all your curves and imperfections.

Like I Will Never See You Again by Alicia Keys

Kiss her like you will never see her again, hug her and treat her that way. Life is short and filled with many unexpected events, you are never certain about tomorrow, so treat your partner like every day is the last day.


- Don't change by Musiq Soulchild

Love is not superficial and the words of this song says it all. "I'll love you when your hair turns gray, girl. I'll still want you if you gain a little weight, yeah the way I feel for you will always be the same."


Two Wrongs by Wyclef and Claudette Ortiz

If you cheated in your relationship, don't try to justify it. Follow Wyclef and take responsibility for your error and do not make the same mistake twice.


Someone Like You by Adele

When you find someone you truly love, you never forget them. You or they may have moved on, but you will never forget what you had.


Part of Me by Katy Perry

This is a break-up song. After all the tears, be like Katy Perry - don't lose yourself. You will eventually heal and become stronger.

Reunited by Peaches and Herb

Some of us break up and make up, but ensure that it is better the next time so that you are "reunited and it is feeling good".


Put a Ring on It by Beyoncé.

Well not if you like it, but if you love it put a ring on it.


 Thinking out Loud by Ed Sheeran

One of the greatest gifts we can ever have is to experience true love. And when you find the one, hold on tight and love them forever.
