I need a list of some heart-wrenching, hair curling love songs...



I like to have background music when I write; it helps get me into the mood for the more emotion scenes.



Any suggestions?

Here are some of the ones I have:



-At this Moment (was sang on Family Ties when Alex and Tracy Pollen were saying good-bye in a train station)

-This is the Night (clay aiken)

-Bridge over Troubled Water

-Solitaire (NOT by Karen C /shutter)

-Not Supposed to Love you anymore

-The Heart Don't LIe



Those sort of things. Gut wrenching types of songs. I write my best romance scenes when I'm completely depressed from music

Sad, happy, what's your preference? I know some of the sad...



Stay Gone - Jimmy Wayne - Country (relationship sux, better off apart, stay away because I'm healthy this way)



Movin' On - Rascal Flatts - Country (life full of regrets, getting rid of ghosts/demons, etc., life is waiting)



These Days - Rascal Flatts - Country (seeing old flame in airport, still thinking about her, still missing her, etc.)



Independence Day - Martina McBride - Country (child witnessing abusive relationship, mother burns house down, child goes to county home, etc.)



Who's that Man (Running My Life) - Toby Keith - Country (Divorced husband and wife, father drives by house, sees someone else's car in driveway)



I'm So Happy - Toby Keith and Sting - Country (Divorced man tries to get his life together with "joint custody and legal separation)



Oh Krista, I could go on for days with gut wrenching Country music if you could tolerate the tunes that go along. The stories are great, and I seem to relate a lot of my life experiences to them, however I know there are other genres that express it all just as well. Check out lyrics, see what might inspire you, then hook up with tunes.



ETA: Heart Don't Lie...Good one!

Nah, Country is good for pain and suffering!



I don't like Martina, but I forgot about Rascal Flatts.



Thanks!

love the Cure



what about 80's powerballads?

foreigner had some good ones, tears for fears, inxs, duran duran, that sort of thing.

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

Chariots Rise by Lizzie West.



It's my new favorite love song. AMAZING. It's the last song on the "Secretary" soundtrack. You have to check it out. Her vocal style is similar to Nathalie Merchant's.

kristadb,



There is nothing, NOTHING more romatic, kick in the heart, makes you want to melt than nearly any love ballad sung by Luther Vandross.



the very best:



A House Is Not A Home - please, please, please listen to this - if you haven't heard it, you will be absolutely amazed.



Superstar/ Until You Come Back To Me - you might think that Ruben does this well - can't compare to Luther



Love Won't Let Me Wait - makes clothes magically throw themselves off your body and onto the floor



I Want The Night To Stay



Crazy Love





NOW, singer that can absolutely leave you on the floor in a big mess is Sade:



Is It A Crime - the very best. Still makes me tear up - if you've ever lost a love, this is the song



Pearls - a song about a woman's love for her child, and her suffering



Finally, you don't have to love Barry Manilow, to love this song - about lost love:



When October Goes



These are the hard core, leave you on the floor in a heaping pile of tears, OR the hard core, gonna definately get laid but good, songs. Please listen to them and review them here.

Robert Cray - "I Wonder" and "The Price I Pay"



Al Green - "Love and Happiness" and "Let's Stay Together"



Blood Sweat & Tears - "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know"



The Cars - "Why Can't I Have You?"



Also Rod Stewart's version of the old Holland/Dozier/Holland Motown number "You Keep Me Hanging On" always sends shivers through my soul, though less powerful versions exist performed by The Supremes, Vanilla Fudge and others.



Try those on for size . . . .

What about, Tom Waits "Hold On"? It's a great song. Not your typical love song, but it is really beautiful and touching.

okay you people make me feel young. two good songs that aren't necessarily love songs but are still tear jerkers are "He's my Son" by Mark Schultz, christian guy but the song is about a kid who was terminally ill or sumthin, and "Concrete Angel" by Martina McBride.

or Frank Sinatra "Fly me to the moon" or Michelle Branch's "Goodbye to you"



Frankie is about as old as i get in terms of music

*sighs as she gazes across the generation gap*

Why how old are you? I'm fairly young (20) although, I feel old....but, most of my musical taste is from the earlier generations. Just because you are growing up in this generation, doesn't mean you're excluded from the earlier generations...
