The Best Make-Up Songs

It's hard to cope with the feelings that follow a bad fight—especially when you had the tiff with someone who means the world to you. Among couples, it’s often silly little things that lead to a big fight or argument. Oftentimes, it’s just a word said in a taunting way that triggers an argument. One thing leads to another, and you end up saying things you really don’t mean.

The words we use during an argument hurt immensely. However, after the big fight, when we reflect quietly on what went wrong, we understand the damage we've caused and seek to fix the relationship. So, instead of playing the blame game after a fight, try to recognize each other’s wrongdoing and make peace with each other. A great way to make up after an argument is with a thoughtful selection of love songs.

The list below showcases a diverse number of love songs to listen to after a fight or argument. If you have suggestions for how to resolve issues after a fight or argument, share them with us in the comments—and feel free to share song suggestions in the comments as well.
