I absolutely love the vibe of the song "I'm Not the Only One" by Sam Smith. Would like more songs like this, please.

The tempo makes it perfect for slow dancing...if only the lyrics weren't so depressing. Can you recommend more songs like this, preferably a bit happier? And what IS this sound, anyway? Is it soul? Jazz? I feel like this is probably a whole genre that I'm unaware of. I feel very ignorant...

I think Don't Know Why by Norah Jones has a very similar vibe.

John Legend - Lets Get Lifted

Best answer: Not quite the same genre, but Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud has the same tempo and is romantic.

Maybe John Legend's All of Me. Definitely more romantic/upbeat than "I'm not the only one."

As far as genre, I guess this could be considered R&B, but there's probably a better descriptor out there.
