40 Sentimental Love Songs to Call Your Very Own

You may have a ballad that you belt it out loud in the shower. But there’s something special about a song that makes a couple remember the moment they first met, first kissed, or the day they said “I do.” Regardless of the age, that song becomes a sentimental favorite. As they say, “They’re playing our song.”
