A love song is a song about falling in love and the feelings it brings, and/or about ones heartbreaking and how it feels. Anthologies of love songs often contain a mixture of both of these types of song. A bawdy song is both humorous and saucy, emphasizing the physical pleasure of love rather than the emotional joy. Notable performers of love songs include Paul McCartney, Elvis Presley, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Bryan Adams, Beyoncé, Celine Dion, Richard Marx, Mariah Carey, Phil Collins, George Michael,Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Whitney Houston, Billy Joel, The Beatles, and Adele.
