Just for Valentinstag we've put together a collection of German "love songs" (Liebeslieder) by various artists. All the songs listed below have the original German lyrics with an English translation.

The Beatles
The only two songs the Beatles ever recorded in German were love songs:
Sie liebt dich ("She loves you")
Komm gibt mir deine Hand ("I Want to Hold Your Hand")

ich + ich
The music and lyrics of the duo of composer/producer Annette Humpe and lead singer Adel Tawil have been termed "pop for adults."
Du erinnerst mich an Liebe

Die Knef
A classic Hildegard Knef love song:
Eins und eins, das macht zwei

Udo Lindenberg
A nice mellow love song by Germany's "senior" rocker:
