Do you love a good love song? You know, the kind of song that brings you joy, makes you weep or weak in the knees and prompts you to sing along (albeit a little off-key) and play on repeat. The kind of song that celebrates the complexities of love — the highs and lows of falling in and out of romantic love, the beauty of finding self-love, the unconditional comfort of motherly love and the unbreakable bond of sisterly love. 

Take our quiz and test your knowledge of classic and contemporary love songs by quiet storm all-stars like Sade, Luther Vandross, Toni Braxton, Karyn White, Anita Baker, Roberta Flack and Earth, Wind & Fire.
