22 Adorable Love Songs For When You Can't Stop Thinking About Your Crush — LISTEN
Contrary to popular belief, you don't stop developing crushes on people once you graduate from high school. No, believe me, the crush phenomenon extends well into adulthood — and honestly, I'm glad. Generally speaking, I'm pretty cynical when it comes to love, but I think having a crush on someone is great. Every time you see the object of your affection, your pulse races and your heart swells; you feel like you're on top of the world! (You may also feel jittery and nauseous like you just downed an entire pot of coffee... but usually, you just feel really, really good.) It's awesome. Of course, many crushes don't lead to romance, but for a brief period of time, anything seems possible... and that's so cool.
When you're crushin' on somebody super hard, it's fun sometimes to just sit with that magical mix of euphoric emotions while it's around. The best way to do that? Listening to love songs, duh! But not just any love songs — you need to find love songs that specifically capture those intoxicating, "head-over-heels" feelings that make your spirit soar. Today's your lucky day, because I've rounded up 22 pop tunes that are perfect to listen to when you have a crush. Check 'em out below.

Becky G — "Shower"
I think pretty much everyone can relate to the "Shower" chorus. "La da dee, la da da, la da daaa..."
Jump 5 — "All I Can Do"
"All I Can Do" is the definition of adorable.
Glee Cast — "Teenage Dream"
Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" is one of my favorite pop songs of all time — and there's something extra special about Darren Criss' rendition from Season 2 of Glee. He's just so... dreamy.
One Direction — "Kiss You"
According to a recent unscientific study conducted by me, roughly 87 percent of all early One Direction songs are about having a crush on someone.
Selena Gomez — "Hands To Myself"
For when the feeling is mutual and you and your crush decide to take things to the next level...
Britney Spears — "Amnesia"
Because being around your crush has the potential to make you all tongue-tied and forgetful.
Fifth Harmony — "Body Rock"
Listening to "Body Rock" — hands down the most underrated track on Fifth Harmony's debut album, Reflection — is a heady experience.
Samantha Jade — "Sweet Talk"
It's tough to resist a little well-executed (and well-timed) sweet talk.
Ariana Grande — "Baby I"
Sing it, Ari!
DNCE — "Toothbrush"
Not gonna lie, I'm super into Joe Jonas' new band, DNCE. "Toothbrush" is a jam!
Amerie — "1 Thing"
A modern classic.
Neon Hitch — "Gold" (Feat. Tyga)
The lyrics to "Gold" are ridiculously cute: "It's good to meet ya, beautiful creature / You got my heartbeat racin' like a cheetah / Don't need no lights, so turn 'em off / Give me a Tylenol / 'Cause my head keeps spinnin' like a disco ball." Yup, sounds like a crush alright!
Carly Rae Jepsen — "Sweetie"
"Sweetie" is so cheesy, but so good.
Echosmith — "Bright"
What a wonderful song.
Bridgit Mendler — "Ready Or Not"
Trust me, "Ready or Not" will be stuck in your head in no time.
Oliver Nelson — "Found Your Love" (Feat. Heir)
The vocals are so smooooth!
Fergie — "Clumsy"
Required crush listening, tbh.
Wrathschild — "Fall Into Love"
Get a load of this chorus: "Let's fall into lo-ove tonight (Oh, I) / Come and scoop me up in your ride (Oh, I) / It'll be like in the movies / With your bass pumpin' in the night (Outside my window) / Let's fall into lo-ove tonight, (Oh, I)." Perfection.
Jessie J — "Domino"
Forget about "Bang Bang" — "Domino" is the greatest gift Jessie J has ever given us.
Jessica Sanchez — "No One Compares" (Feat. Prince Royce)
I'm a sucker for a good dance ballad.
Cher Lloyd — "With Ur Love" (Feat. Mike Posner)
Can never get enough of this one.
Cody Simpson — "Wish U Were Here" (Feat. Becky G)
We opened with Becky G, we close with Becky G. When it comes to crushes, she definitely knows her stuff!
