This uke love song list is loaded with popular songs and a few personal favorites to keep things fresh. Keep in mind, this list of ukulele love songs is made of both songs that were originally done on a ukulele as well as love songs that have been covered on ukulele (and are amazing)!

Most of the uke love songs below are in standard uke tuning – G-C-E-A – but some different versions might require a ukulele capo.

Understandably, it’s a fun song about being totally “in” for your person. There’s even a fun interlude that you can make up words and sounds to!

Perfect – Ed Sheeran

It might be one of the more popular songs on this list, but there’s a good reason for that. Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” is honestly pretty perfect to sing as a love song.

If we had to pick a favorite ukulele love song, it might very well be “Hey There Delilah”. The lyrics tell a story and will definitely get the message across that you miss/need your person but are hopeful for the future.

The nice thing about this song is that because it’s so popular, there are a bunch of different versions (mainly differing by key, and thus your singing voice).

  • Chords For Hey There Delilah: A, Bm, D, G, Gbm (popular version)/ C, Am, F, G, Em (slightly easier version) but see which one works for your voice
  • Capo: No Capo

Bleeding Love – Leona Lewis

For a bit of a throwback classic, turn to “Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis. The ukulele chords aren’t too tricky and the lyrics tend to repeat. That makes it an easy song to learn overall.

The song might sound morbid to some, but it’s really about passionate love for another that is unwavering. It’s also a song about not listening to others when you know your heart is right. It’s a song we really like!

  • Chords For Bleeding Love: F, Dm, Bb, C

If The World Was Ending- JP Saxe ft. Julia Michaels

As a hit song at the time of writing, “If The World Was Ending” is a song we need to include on this list. It’s also a song that sounds great on the ukulele.

Some people even think it’s a sad ukulele song… which is why it’s on both our lists. How you interpret it is really dependent on your life experiences.

As a love song, it’s a song about two people and their ups and downs. The overall messaging, however, is that at the end of the day, you want to be there for them/with them. It might work for you and your person…. it worked for JP and Julia (who are a couple in real life!)

  • Chords For If The World Was Ending: F, G, C, Am
  • Capo: No Capo

Sea of Love – Cat Power

Last, but certainly not least, we have “Sea of Love”. Popularized by the film “Juno”, “Sea of Love” by Cat Power is about exactly what you’d imagine – a sea of love!

It’s not a total beginner chord and strum progression but it’s also not the most difficult ukulele love song you could try to learn.

It’s all about telling your person how much you love them.. and it does a great job of that!

  • Chords For Sea of Love: D, Db7, E, Eb7, G
  • Capo: No Capo
