15 Best Karaoke Love Songs - Music Grotto (2023)

Serenading the person that you love is a romantic gesture as old as, well, romance. If you’re thinking about trying out a love track at your next karaoke night, you don’t have to stick to a slow ballad. There are great karaoke love songs in every genre, range, and tempo, so you can find the perfect one.

1. Your Song — Elton John

Your Song

It is almost impossible to choose which of Sir Elton John’s songs is his best, but his 1970 track Your Song might be one of his most legendary. The ballad made him a pop icon and has long been considered not just one of his greatest, but one of the best tracks of all time. It was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. The lyrics are a little precious at times, with the singer stumbling over his words as he tries to express his feelings. What could be more relatable?

2. My Girl — Stevie Wonder

My Girl

My Girl was originally recorded by The Temptations in 1964, and that version may be the best known. But Stevie Wonder gave the track new life with his cover in 1967. Whichever version you prefer, you can’t go wrong with this classic, upbeat love song. It is easy to sing, and it is one of those tracks that immediately puts you in a good mood—which is exactly what the tune is all about. If you have a significant other who makes you feel like you’re on top of the world, this is the perfect song to cover at your next karaoke night.

3. When You Say Nothing At All — Alison Krauss

Alison Krauss - When You Say Nothing At All (Official Video)

Alison Krauss’ sweet, ethereal voice is absolutely haunting in the song When You Say Nothing At All. But you don’t have to have her talent to make your significant other melt at your performance. The track is all about how when you’re with the person that you love, you don’t need to say sweet nothings to each other. Just existing together in silence is the best way to express your love, especially when you have been a couple for many years and know how to communicate without words.


4. You Are So Beautiful — Joe Cocker

You Are So Beautiful was first recorded by Billy Preston but made famous by Joe Cocker. As a love song, this 1974 hit hits all the perfect notes—no pun intended. Soft and gentle, it is a simple praise of everything the singer loves about his significant other. It just goes to show that you don’t have to be a natural poet to express your love, you just have to be able to share the reasons that you can’t get enough of your partner.

5. I Got You Babe — Sonny & Cher

Sonny & Cher - I Got You Babe (Official Audio)

Sonny & Cher got their start as a dynamic duo in the 1960s as a married power couple. Though it has become known as one of the greatest romantic duets of the decade, Cher hated it when her husband first played it for her. But she eventually changed her mind, and the song became the duo’s signature track. It has a fun hippie vibe and is a great, upbeat love song to sing either as a solo or as a duet with the person that you love.

6. My Heart Will Go On — Céline Dion

Céline Dion - My Heart Will Go On (Taking Chances World Tour: The Concert)

Here’s a fun fact: both Céline Dion and director James Cameron disliked this track so much that they didn’t want to include it in Titanic. It’s a good thing they were convinced otherwise, since the song won a stunning number of awards, including multiple Grammy and Academy Awards.

It is also known as the singer’s signature track. Most of the song is fairly easy to sing, as long as you can deliver some power in that famous chorus. With the track being named among the biggest songs of the 20th century, it is hard to do better than this when you want to serenade your significant other.

7. Crazy Little Thing Called Love — Queen

Queen - Crazy Little Thing Called Love (Official Video)

Want to sing a love track, but romantic ballads aren’t your style? A fun rockabilly song like Queen’s Crazy Little Thing Called Love might be more up your alley. The track features all the pep and energy that Freddie Mercury was known for but also has plenty of sweet lines about how great your sweetheart is. It also has lots of fun lines like “Shakes all over like a jellyfish, I kinda like it,” so you can have a great time up onstage while still serenading your significant other.

8. You’re Still The One — Shania Twain

Shania Twain - You’re Still The One (Official Music Video)

Shania Twain was the Queen of Country Music back in the 1990s when she released most of her most famous tracks, including the classic love song You’re Still The One. The track is about how being with the person you love never gets old, no matter how long the two of you have been together. It’s a beautiful ballad about how even if the thrill of new romance fades, the excitement of love never goes away.

9. Like I’m Gonna Lose You — Meghan Trainor Feat. John Legend

Meghan Trainor - Like I'm Gonna Lose You (Official Video) ft. John Legend

John Legend might well be called the King of Contemporary Romantic Pop Ballads; he has become widely known throughout the 2010s for tracks such as All Of Me and Love Me Now. But his 2015 duet with pop singer Meghan Trainor stands out for more than one reason. If you’re looking for a great romantic karaoke duet, this slow but jazzy song is a great choice. Don’t be shy if you don’t have a singing partner, though, because it is just as great as a solo piece.

10. Lady — Kenny Rogers

Kenny Rogers - Lady (Audio)

(Video) BEST KARAOKE SONGS OF ALL TIME (VOL. 20): BEST MUSIC from Oasis, Panic At The Disco, Green Day

Lady was composed by the great Lionel Richie, but it was country singer Kenny Rogers who made it famous. His performance made both musicians superstars, and this became one of the most iconic love songs of the early 1980s. There is something to be said for its sweet and simple lyrics that just make it the perfect love track to sing to your significant other, whether it’s your first time on a karaoke stage or one of many.

11. Hopelessly Devoted To You — Olivia Newton-John

Hopelessly Devoted To You (From “Grease”)

Olivia Newton-John was best known for her performance in the movie Grease, where she played the female lead of Sandy Olson. She wowed audiences by unleashing her powerful voice in the ballad Hopelessly Devoted To You, an amazing transformation from the shy, reserved character she played in most of the movie. If you’re feeling brave, this is a fantastic track to bring out at your next karaoke night. But be forewarned: you’ll need to have some power and range to do the song justice.

12. You’re The First, The Last, My Everything — Barry White

You're The First, The Last, My Everything

R&B singer Barry White released one of his most famous tracks in 1974. It was an instant success, climbing to the top of the charts. It remains one of the most iconic love songs of the era. This soulful hit hearkens back to the days of disco and doesn’t skimp on the flowery lyrics, describing the singer’s lover as “the answer to all [his] dreams,” his “guiding star,” and even the morning dew. If you don’t know how to write your own romantic poems, this is a great substitute.

13. Just The Way You Are — Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars - Just The Way You Are (Official Music Video)

(Video) RnB Music Instrumental 10 Hours

Bruno Mars became widely known in the early 2010s after he released a series of romantic ballads. The most famous ones included Grenade, Marry You, and Just The Way You Are. The song addresses a partner who feels self-conscious about the way they look, with the singer assuring them that he loves everything about them and wouldn’t change a thing. It’s a conversation that many of us have had with our own partners, and we can relate to wishing they knew how beautiful they are.

14. With You — Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey - With You

Few people can perform a romantic ballad like Mariah Carey, but she is best known for her love songs from the 1990s and early 2000s. But she is still releasing new music—such as her 2018 hit, With You. The track is all about feeling safe and secure when you’re with the person that you love, and in turn, promising your partner that you will take care of all their needs. In typical Carey form, the song offers a big vocal challenge, but ultimately, what matters is the passion you put into the performance.

15. Have I Told You Lately — Rod Stewart

Rod Stewart - Have I Told You Lately (Official Audio)

Have I Told You Lately was originally composed by Van Morrison, but it was the British musician Rod Stewart who made it famous. This slow ballad has been covered by countless artists over the years, and it is always ripe for another. Unsurprisingly, it is also a popular choice for karaoke nights and wedding receptions. Sometimes, the classics are worth another visit—and it’s not too hard to sing, either! It is hard to beat this slow, sweet ballad that reminds us about the importance of telling each other how we really feel.
