When someone asks you this:

Question: Do you like love songs?

Answer#1: Yes I do, because sometimes I relate to the song's lyrics, especially the experiences that I have had before.

To

Answer#2: Yes I do, because sometimes I relate to the song's lyrics, especially the experiences that I have had.

Is there any differences between the two? And why do they have to include before? (mostly at the end of a sentence/statement) When it is obviously in the past?

  • The meaning doesn't change. Using "before" is just a little more wordy than the other. – Neil Sep 27 '18 at 8:10

It is redundant, but it is common to use the "before" in that sentence. Maybe an over-communication, but it's very common.
