The Best Spanish Love Songs of All Time
Inside: The best Spanish love songs: A Latin Playlist.
It’s no secret that Spanish is a romantic language– and no, I don’t mean that it’s one of the Romance Languages! Rocket Languages says:
As one of the world’s most widely spoken languages, Spanish tops off our list as one of the world’s most romantic languages because of its passionate, sensual sound.
I think this is probably true. No wonder Latin music and poetry are famous. And of course, music in Spanish can make your perfect background for Valentine’s Day, or whatever love-is-in-the-air sort of time it may be.
You’ll notice this list is more classic– I’m working on the following lists to add to my Songs in Spanish collection:
- Valentine’s Day Songs for Spanish Class
- Sad Spanish Songs (A Break-up Playlist)
- Classic Spanish Songs (Folk Songs)
The Best Spanish Love Songs
Let’s take a tour of our top picks, and don’t forget you can access this list on Spotify too. If I missed one of your favorites, let me know in the comments below!
1. BÉSAME MUCHO
Can it get any more classic than Bésame mucho? This is an iconic Spanish love song that belongs on every romantic Latin list.
2. NO TE APARTES DE MÍ – VICENTICO
I love this duet: “Todo amor que yo espere de la vida , Lo he encontrado solo en ti…”
3. LA COSA MÁS BELLA – EROS RAMAZZOTTI
Eros Ramazzotti’s iconic voice is unmistakeable, as are the lyrics in this classic.
4. RAYANDO EL SOL – MANÁ
I love Maná, so this romantic song in Spanish is one of my personal favorites. Anytime a crowd hears Rayando el Sol, it’s impossible not to sing along!
5. TE AMO
Of course, Franco de Vita and a song that croons Te amo over and over belong on the top love songs in Spanish list.
6. No Sé Tú – Luis Miguel
Luis Miguel is one of the most beloved Latin pop singers, and new generations are discovering him in the new Netflix series based on his life and career. Here’s one of his best romantic hits.
7. SI TÚ NO ESTÁS AQUÍ – Rosana
This is the essence of Spanish music: guitar, lilting voice, and deep sentiment. Beautiful. Some songs capture the giddiness of new love; this one holds the depth of that couple who’s been through thick and thin.
8. Mi Forma de Sentir – Pedro Fernández
Remember the best of romantic Mexican ballads with this gorgeous song.
9. LA CANCIÓN MÁS BONITA DEL MUNDO – LA OREJA DE VAN GOGH
This was one of the first songs I learned as a young Spanish speaker. Rosas is another good pick from the group, but I still love this one!
10. TE REGALO UNA ROSA – JUAN LUIS GUERRA
Here’s some Spanish love bachata-style (and incidentally, what we danced to at our wedding!).
11. Cuando Me Digas Sí – Richie Ray, Bobby Cruz, Miki Vimari
This bolero will bring back all the feels of Latin love music.
12. SIN MIEDO A NADA – ALEX UBAGO
13. LUZ DE DÍA – ENANITOS VERDES
14.YO NO SÉ MAÑANA – LUIS ENRIQUE
More lighthearted than most on this list, Yo No Sé Mañana speaks to the uncertainty of new love with an upbeat salsa tone.
15. Contigo Aprendí – Alejandro Fernández
16. Antologia – Shakira
It’s hard to beat Shakira’s old classics. This one, she says, was written at age 16 and captures her original sound and romantic song-writing skills.
17. Porque Nadie Sabe – Fonseca ft. Nahuel Pennisi
This one might be too new to include, but it has quickly become one of my favorite Fonseca songs. The poetic lyrics and melody are so good I made room for it on this list of more classic tunes.
18. Por El Amor de una Mujer – Julio Iglesias
19. ES POR TI – JUANES
Juanes is another iconic Latin singer and Es por ti is one of his best love songs. I love this live version.
20. Por Fin – Pablo Alborán y Bebe
21. TODO CAMBIÓ – CAMILA
21. Tiempo de Vals – Chayanne
One of the most-played songs at quinceañeras, Tiempo de Vals is another romantic classic in Spanish.
22. El Reloj – Pedro Vargas
23. Tú Amor Me Hace Bien – Marc Antony
