The concept of love at first sight is debatable. After all, how can you possibly love someone when you’ve just met them? For those of you who are skeptical about this concept, these songs might just change your mind.
Kylie Minogue – Love at First Sight
Let’s start off the list with a happy dance song about falling in love at first sight. In this song, Kylie sings as a lovestruck woman whose day turns from blue to bright when she spots a musician that catches both her eye and her heart. If you’ve fallen in love with a musician, this is the perfect song to sing to them because it’s about finding love the minute you heard them play.
Love at first sight lyrics: And everything went from wrong to right
And the stars came out and filled up the sky
The music you were playing really blew my mind
It was love at first sight
’cause baby when I heard you
For the first time I knew
We were meant to be as one
The Brobecks – Love at First Sight
This song starts off with one of the cheesiest pickup lines you can ever use to reference love at first sight. In this song, the protagonist is trying to come up with something worthwhile to say to a girl he just met and has already fallen in love with. It doesn’t hurt that his acoustic guitar and soothing voice makes this song so much more romantic.
Love at first sight lyrics: Could this be love at first sight, or should I walk by again?
You’re photogenically dressed,
The conversation begins.
Oh God, now what did I say?
Let me start over again
Kix – Love at First Sight
Yes, even glam metal bands like Kix wax poetic about the wonders of love at first sight, though not without at least one sexually explicit line in the song. Nevertheless, the singer is caught lovestruck when he lays eyes on a beautiful woman. However, he admits that love isn’t enough for him, and he wants more than just affection from this beautiful woman.
Love at first sight lyrics: Oh what an explosion, my hearts gonna fail
It was 6.8 on the Richter scale
A vision of beauty, well I’m caught in a stare
A red light turns green – not even aware
I just can’t help it – I’m daydreaming at night
But just one look and it’s love at first sight
It was love — love at first sight
Styx – Love at First Sight
Styx’s take on love at first sight is about a man who’s going nuts just trying to find the girl he shared a moment with. He can’t believe he’s falling head over heels for someone he only saw once, and he’s driving around her house to catch a glimpse of her once again. He’s so convinced of the passion between them and so desperate for her to love him that he’s willing to play the part of the stalker.
Love at first sight lyrics: Love at first sight
I know that this can’t be happening
No, not to someone like me
Love at first sight
It’s hard to keep your balance
Moving past the point of no return
Kenny Chesney – You Had Me From Hello
If you know this title from that famous line from Jerry McGuire, then you might be interested to know its history. Kenny Chesney was inspired to write this song when he saw Renee Zellweger’s character deliver it in the movie. About 9 years later, Chesney and Zellweger got married. Sadly, the marriage only lasted four months. But hey, at least they got a great song with lots of history out of that relationship!
Love at first sight lyrics: Well, you had me from “Hello”
I felt love start to grow the moment I looked into your eyes,
You won me, it was over from the start.
You completely stole my heart, and now you won’t let go.
I never even had a chance you know?
You had me from “Hello”
John Mellencamp – Love at First Sight
This acoustic ballad is all about the many things that can run through a person’s head when they get ahead of themselves. In this song, John meets a woman and immediately thinks about their future together – from their first kiss to their marriage to their kids, and finally, to their eventual breakup. However, it’s all in his head because the woman he’s been fantasizing about is just his friend.
Love at first sight lyrics: So I suppose it’s just hello
And that it’s time for us to go
We got a little ahead of ourselves
Like everybody else
Maybe some other time
I suppose that’d be just fine
So until we meet again
I suppose we’re just friends
But remember what they say
Cause it happens every day
I believe in love at first sight
So there, I said it
Chris De Burgh – The Lady in Red
This is one of those songs with an incredibly romantic inspiration. De Burgh was inspired to write this song when he saw a gorgeous woman in red across the room at a party. Little did he know that it was actually his wife. He goes on to say that this song was inspired by the memory of when he first saw his wife, while so many men can’t even recall what their future wives were wearing when they first met.
Love at first sight lyrics: I’ve never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I’ve never seen you shine so bright
I’ve never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They’re looking for a little romance, given half a chance
And I have never seen that dress you’re wearing
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes
I have been blind
Savage Garden – I Knew I Loved You
What beats love at first sight? Knowing that you love them before you’ve even met them. I Knew I Loved You is a song about finding the person you were destined to be with, even if you’ve only just met. There’s no logic behind it because you just know in your heart that you’ve finally find the person you’re meant to be with for the rest of your life.
Love at first sight lyrics: I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life
Michael Buble – Love at First Sight
Michael Buble’s song about love at first sight is about confessing his feelings to someone he has fallen in love with. In his confession, he tells her that he started to believe in love at first sight when he first met her, and his heart is just bursting with emotion because of it.
Love at first sight lyrics: The first time I saw you
I knew love at first sight must be true, so true, oh so true
Roberta Flack – The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
For the ultimate song about love at first sight, we just had to choose Roberta Flack’s The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. This song epitomizes what it’s like to fall in love with someone you just met in a way that’s so sweet and romantic.
Love at first sight lyrics: The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless skies
