- The 20 Most Popular Modern Love Songs
- The 20 Most Popular Classic Love Songs
- The Top-Searched Modern-Day Love Song in Every U.S. State
- The Top-Searched Classic/Oldies Love Song in Every U.S. State

The #1 top-searched classic/oldies love song in Massachusetts is:

The study found that the #1 modern-day love song ranked by Spotify Streams is a huge Ed Sheeran hit:
On the classic side, the study found that the #1 classic/oldies love song is another Whitney smash.
