Spring makes people fall in love. Supposedly. Whether that’s true or not, open season on weddings is approaching, and if you’re like me, you’ve lost track of how many pairs of friends are getting hitched.

Whether you’re getting married and need a break from the same sappy wedding songs, or just want to fall in love a little bit this spring, here are some love tunes to help you on your way.

For the love-struck starry-eyed, infatuation served up strong:

"Radiate"

Fleming and John

The Way We Are

For those seriously considering marriage, the best proposal I have ever heard:

"Monstertruck"

This Train

The Emperor’s New Band

For your first dance, alone, with rain pouring down outside:

"Like a Radio"

Over the Rhine

Till We Have Faces

For your friends to sing for you and with you at your wedding:

"We Are A Beginning"

Sarah Masen

The Dreamlife of Angels

For the weepy part of your wedding:

"Jesus in Your Eyes"

Buddy and Julie Miller

Orphans and Angels

For later:

"Go Down Easy"

Over the Rhine

Good Dog Bad Dog

For the first month anniversary, and every one after that:

"Anniversary Song"

Pale Sun Crescent Moon

You’ll know when this one is appropriate, and welcome it then:

"Comfortable"

Fleming and John

The Way We Are

For the days you’re apart:

"We Will Meet Again"

And for when, as wonderful as that other person is, they let you down and there is one thing you can’t find in them. This is a love song to God:

"Hold Dearly to Me"
