Music has always captured human emotions and experiences. But one emotion is arguably universally experienced and most commonly captured in music—love.

A love song can be at any tempo and provoke many different feelings. But the slower the tempo and the more powerful the vocals, the more we find ourselves in feeling all the feels. Enter the "love ballad."

As Valentine's Day comes and goes, we are honoring the greatest romantic ballads. Each ballad topped the Billboard Hot 100, specifically has "love" in the song's title, and was recorded by only the most iconic and popular music artists. The Tylt wants all of the hopeless romantics to choose the greatest "LOVE" ballad of all time.

Bee Gees, Whitney, Mariah and Celine's ballads all made it to second round of our bracket; they beat out Diana Ross and Lionel Richie's "Endless Love," Olivia Newton-John's "Honestly I Love You," Boyz II Men "I'll Make Love to You," and Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called to Say I Love You" respectively in the first round.

Now it's "How Deep Is Your Love" versus "I Will Always Love You," and "Vision of Love" versus "Because You Loved Me." Which love pop songs will come out on top and progress to our final round?

Bee Gees' "How Deep Is Your Love" is there first of #1 hits from the classic "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack, and it's safe to say the slow jam is the sexiest of the singles. The sensual ballad is ranked at #375 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Below are some notable lyrics, per Genius.

🎶 And you come to me on a summer breeze. Keep me warm in your love. Then you softly leave. And it's me you need to show. How deep is your love?🎶

Houston covered Dolly Parton's classic country smash "I Will Always Love You" for the soundtrack to the romantic thriller "The Bodyguard." While Parton's original version was a hit, Houston brought worldwide recognition to the hit. Houston gave us her most signature vocal performance of all time, winning Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Record of the Year at the Grammys in 1994. The mega smash topped the Hot 100 for 14 weeks, making the ballad one of the longest-running #1s of all time.

Below are some notable lyrics, per Genius.

🎶 If I should stay. I would only be in your way. So I'll go but I know. I'll think of you every step of the way.🎶
