The time of year has come around for chocolates, candlelit dinners, late night walks on the beach, and listening to love songs. Students around BYU-Hawaii shared their favorite love songs they listen to. “Love You Like a Love Song” by Selena Gomez is Ese Tualetonu's from American Samoa, a sophomore in Social Work and a minor in TESOL, favorite love song. Cole Madsen, a freshman in Biology from Washington, says that his favorite love song is “Lips are Movin’” by Meghan Trainor. “It doesn’t just apply romantically, but also to relationships with friends, so it doesn’t have to be romantic if you don’t want it to be.”Sara Soakai, a graduate from BYUH and now an orbit and regional planner, says that her favorite song is “At Last” by Etta James, “because it is a classic and was sung at my wedding.”“Fields of Gold,” the Celtic Women version, is Ryan Mok's, a junior majoring in English from Hong Kong’s love song of choice. “I can picture myself into the song somehow. Someday I will find that perfect lady and walk along those fields with her someday when we are old and we will have gone through our lives together. We can sit back one day and see how far we’ve gone.”Lauren Ockey, a senior majoring in peacebuilding from Utah, said that her favorite song is “Love, Love, Love” by Avalanche City.

I really like the lyrics.”Country love ballads are also a favorite for Lindsey Ferrin, a junior in psychology from Oklahoma. “Time is Love” by Josh Turner is her love song pick. “I like it because he has the best voice, and it’s so real when you spend time with that person, because every minute matters.”Ping Liu, a freshman majoring in TESOL from China, says “Close Your Eyes” by Michael Buble is her favorite love ballad. “I like the lyrics. The singer’s voice is so comfortable and I love to listen to him.”“I love island music,” Whitley Haimin, a senior in exercise and sports science from Utah said. “Don’t Let Go” by Spawnbreezie is her pick. “It’s my favorite song by him.”Andrew Lang, a sophomore majoring in biochemistry from Oregon, said that “Babe” by Styx and “When You Kiss Me” by Shania Twain are his favorite love songs.Savvy Jensen, a sophomore in hospitality and tourism management from Washington said, “Doin’ What She Likes” by Blake Shelton is her favorite song because “my best friend sang it to me.”“(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time on You” by ‘N Sync is Josh Wallace, a sophomore in music percussion from California’s favorite, because “I wanna say that about my wife.”Kea Sprout, a freshman in vocal performance from Hawaii, said “You and I” by Michael Buble is the best. “Its how love should be."
