Whether you’re in a romantic relationship or not, the celebration of love in February is a great thing, and be it a parent, sibling, neighbor, or co-worker, you can always find someone around you who needs a little love.

With the holidays behind us and winter still in full effect (not that sunny Los Angeles is affected by that much), now’s a great time to take a moment to appreciate those we love. Here’s a few songs to help you to do so.

5. Whitney Houston – “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)”
This 1987 hit topped the top 100 chart for two weeks and is a great power ballad for tearing up the dance floor. While I’ve heard numerous remixes over the years, I still maintain that it doesn’t get better than the original.

4. Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris – “We Found Love”
This song topped the charts for 10 weeks in 2011 and is one of the catchiest of Rihanna’s career. The pairing with superstar DJ/producer Calvin Harris lead to this song being widely played in the festival circuit as well.

3. Elvis – “Can’t Help Falling in Love”
Cheesy as it may be, this classic is by far one of my favorite love songs. Originally released in 1961, this song still is played frequently and is one of those that always leaves me wishing I were waltzing across a dance floor in the arms of my love.

2. Sara Bareilles – “Love Song” 
Throwing it back to 2008 for this one, Sara Bareilles’ debut song is both spunky and fun while capturing the essence of independence. This track also topped the Adult Contemporary and Adult Pop Songs charts and was the #1 song of the year on those lists.

1. Above and Beyond – “A Thing Called Love”
Above and Beyond has been making music for over 20 years, but this recent addition to their catalog is one of the best. My favorite line in this song is “You live your life just once, so don’t forget about a thing called love.” Be inspired as you listen to this acoustic version, and take a moment to tell someone you love them today and always.
