Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ voted greatest love song of all time
The greatest love song of all time is Whitney’s Houston’s take on the Dolly Parton classic "I Will Always Love You", according to research.
The study of 2,000 adults also revealed "Unchained Melody", by the Righteous Brothers, and "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion, are among top songs to make hearts melt.
The king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley, was the only artist to have two songs feature in the top 10, with "Can’t Help Falling in Love" and "Love Me Tender".
Robbie Williams’ "Angels", Aerosmith’s "I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing", and "I Want to Know What Love Is" by Foreigner, also feature highly in the top 20.
Commissioned by Uber, the research revealed half of adults who played love songs to potential partners do so in the hope of sparking romance.
Ed Sheeran was voted the best artist for writing love songs, closely followed by Elton John and Adele.
Other noteworthy songwriters in the love stakes include The Beatles, Lionel Richie and James Blunt.
Pop music was declared the genre of choice, when it comes to the sweet melodies, as well as R&B – and surprisingly, rock.
Six in ten adults admit playing romantic music can help them express their emotions, while 42 percent said love songs let them show someone how they feel.
However, nearly one in ten who celebrated Valentine’s Day during lockdown are planning for bigger celebrations to make up for lost time.
And with 59 percent not celebrating last Valentine's Day due to lockdown, Uber is helping customers to go bigger and better with the launch of the Uber Love Boat on Monday, 14th February, from North Greenwich Pier.
Jamie Heywood, Uber’s regional general manager for Northern and Eastern Europe, said: "Whether it’s with a significant other or your best mate, Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate love in all its forms.
