The ranking is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot chart.

Not all romance is like the furious first rush of love. Kacey Musgraves' "Golden Hour" is about the gentler kind that touches and illuminates everything, just like the day's dawn and dusk. Carly Rae Jepsen might use Canadian spelling in Emotion closer "Favourite Colour" but anyone can relate to this ballad about being right next to the person you're most into. Here's one for those dwelling in the past: Taylor Swift's "Red" isn't about a current love affair, but one that's come and gone.
