Question about English (US)

1. I love the song.
2. I love that song.

A certain native speaker told me before that when I'm trying to talk about a particular object, I shouldn't use 'the' instead of 'that'. But I still don't understand the difference. In what situation should I not use 'the' instead of 'that'? What's the difference between 1 and 2?
