long distance relationship songs

Music is a wonderful thing, and every couple has their song. With long-distance relationships, music can be just another way of bringing you closer together and cherishing your love. A good song can lift up your spirits when you’re down one day, whereas a rhythmic melody might make him think about you. You should steer clear of sad and soppy songs that can make you doubt each other or become paranoid. Instead, listen to cheerful, uplifting tracks with strong and powerful lyrics that cherish the love and distance between two people who are in a long-distance relationship.

You can use those long-distance relationship songs to create a common playlist that you can both listen to when you’re on your way to work or when you’re at the gym or even as you’re flying to meet each other. Music has always supported love, and it can help strengthen your bond. So use music to your advantage in a smart way! You will enjoy each and every beat even more when you know that your special someone is listening to the same track you are.

Below you will find a list of amazing songs that are appropriate for people in long-distance relationships.

    Very good list! I actually love the song Ed Sheeran – All Of The Stars. I would add that one in. It is clearly for long distance between America and another country. Very beautiful song. I relate to it a lot being in a long distance relationship myself.

    Great list! Thanks for some new music.

    A good song that would fit well on this list would be Days and Days by Camera Can’t Lie.

    Thanks for the list and new music in comments!
    I want to suggest “Fall” by Brandy. Well… That’s not really talking about missing the other one or being in a ldr. But I think it’s a great hymn to love because it teaches to not be afraid to fall in love and trust the one we love. I listen to it when I miss him and it puts me in a good mood. And I’m not afraid of loving him.

    Thank you for this list. It really helps me. There is a long distance between America and Australia. I can relate to some of these a lot.
