Favourite Love Songs?

ShowMeLove's picture

I'm curious as to what everyone's favourite love songs are.

Plus I'm attempting to put together a fan music video for basically my favourite TV couple ever....and I can't seem to find The Perfect song for it.

So what are your favourite love songs of all time or just recent songs you really like?

I'll start off with some

I'll start off with some favourites that I've been listening to since I was a kid.

Basically any song on the Dirty Dancing Soundtrack including:

-These Arms Of Mine by Otis Redding
-Hungry Eyes by Eric Carmen
-Be My Baby by The Ronettes
-Cry To Me by Solomon Burke
-She's Like The Wind by Patrick Swayze

Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things. Some shall be pardoned, some punished. Never was a story of more regret than this of Juliet and her fair Juliet.

i believe in love -- indigo

i believe in love -- indigo girls
i've loved you before -- melissa etheridge
truly madly deeply -- savage garden
this moment -- melissa etheridge
sleep -- melissa etheridge
keep it precious -- melissa etheridge (even though that's more about breaking up...it's still really sweet)
Gandhi/Buddha -- it's written by cheryl wheeler, but i MUCH prefer the version holly near sings (and it's an AWESOME song)

Hey, don't write yourself off yet.
It's only in your head you feel left out or
looked down on.
Just try your best, try everything you can.
And don't you worry what they tell themselves when you're away.
It just takes some time, little girl you're

Do you like Jimmy Eat World?

Do you like Jimmy Eat World? lol.

Hehe. I've got a CD of theirs that I'm borrowing but I haven't got around to listening to it yet. But I have to say that I LOVE their song The Middle too!

That is quite a list you've compiled. Lots of oldies, I like it. :)

Hmm...

Not sure. I'll have to think about that -- I have so many.

Not one for straightforward love songs...

...but these are the exceptions : "Indian Summer" by The Doors and "Do You Love Me Now?" by The Breeders.

Hakase's picture

Here's a good one.

I don't have a list at the moment, but the first song that pops into my mind is Just You by Sylvie Lewis. Very sweet. There's also the album by The Magnetic Fields, 69 Love Songs, which does indeed have 69 love songs. Not all happy though.

Hehe...Me too! Her voice is beautiful so mine could never compare but that doesn't stop me from singing along :P

And I totally agree that Prince sucks at life. Haha. It's a shame too cause I did at one point like his music but I refuse to support a schmuck like him.
