It seems folks have a love/hate relationship with love songs. Some years it's en vogue to listen to and be a fan of love songs. Other times people don't want anything to do with them or they treat them as guilty pleasures.

The #1 top-searched classic/oldies love song in Massachusetts is:

The study found that the #1 modern-day love song ranked by Spotify Streams is a huge Ed Sheeran hit:
On the classic side, the study found that the #1 classic/oldies love song is another Whitney smash.
