You knew this was coming, right? Because V-Day is tomorrow.



Mine:



This Will Be, by Natalie Cole. It's not just the lyrics, it's the way she belts 'em out.



Quote:
This will be an everlasting love

This will be the one Ive waited for

This will be the first time anyone has loved me



Oh, oh, oh

Im so glad you found me in time

And Im so glad that youve rectified my mind

This will be an everlasting love on me



Oh, oh

Loving you is some kind of wonderful

Because you show me just how much you care

Youve given me the thrill of a lifetime

And made me believe youve got more thrills to spare, oh



This will be an everlasting love, oh yes it will now

Youve brought a lot of sunshine into my life



Youve filled me with happiness I never knew

You gave me more joy than I ever dreamed of

And no one, no one can take the place of you, ooh



This will be, you and me, yes-sir-ee, eternally

Hugging and squeezing and kissing and pleasing

Together, forever, through rain or whatever

Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, you and me

So long as Im living, true love Ill be giving

To you Ill be serving cuz youre so deserving



Hey, youre so deserving, youre so deserving

Yeh, yeh, yeh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Love, love, love, love, love, love

Love, love, love, love

Love, love, love, love, love

Love, love, love

From now on, from now on, yeh

From now on, from now on, yeh



Second favorite:



Love Sneaking Up On You, by Bonnie Raitt



In her usual salty blues style, one of the best R&R songs about love. Simple, straightforward, not mushy at all.



Quote:
Rainy Night, I'm All Alone

Sittin' Here Waitin' For Your

Voice on the Phone

Fever Turns to Cold, Cold Sweat

Thinkin' About the Things We Ain't Done yet



Tell me now, I've got to know,

do you feel the same

Do you just light up at the mention of my name?



Don't worry baby, it ain't nothin' new

That's just love sneakin' up on you

If your whole world's shakin' and you feel like I do

That's just love sneakin' up on you



Nowhere on Earth for your heart to hide

Once love comes sneakin' upon your blindside

And you might as well try to Stop the Rain

Or stand in the tracks of a Runaway Train

You just can't fight it when a thing's meant to be

So come on let's finish what you started with me



Don't worry baby, it ain't nothin' new

That's just love sneakin' up on you

If your whole world's shakin' and you feel like I do

That's just love sneakin' up on you.

"You'll be in my heart" by Phil Collins, it's not really the kind of love song you're after but it's cute and in the disney movie Tarzan.

I think Head Over Feet by Alanis is a wonderful love song. That's the only one that comes to mind immediately. You can see the lyrics here.

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out by The Smiths



Just a little taste :



And if a double-decker bus

Crashes into us

To die by your side

Is such a heavenly way to die

And if a ten-ton truck

Kills the both of us

To die by your side

Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine



How beautiful is that !

You Shouldn't Kiss Me Like This - Toby Keith



I've got a funny feeling

The moment that your lips touched mine

Something shot right through me

My heart skipped a beat in time

There's a different feel about you tonight

It's got me thinking lots of crazy things

I even I think saw a flash of light

It felt like electricity



Chorus:

You shouldn't kiss me like this unless you mean it like that

Cause I'll just close my eyes and I won't know where I'm at

We'll get lost on this dance floor spinning around

And around and around and around

They're all watching us now they think we're falling in love

They'd never believe we're just friends

When you kiss me like this I think you mean it like that

If you do baby kiss me again



Everybody swears we'd make a perfect pair

But dancing is as far as it goes

Girl you've never moved me quite the way you moved me tonight

I just wanted you to know

I just wanted you to know



Repeat Chorus





After All - duet with Peter Cetera/Cher



Well, here we are again;

I guess it must be fate.

Weve tried it on our own,

But deep inside weve known

Wed be back to set things straight.



I still remember when

Your kiss was so brand new.

Every memory repeats,

Every step I take retreats,

Every journey always brings me back to you.



(chorus)

After all the stops and starts,

We keep coming back to these two hearts,

Two angels whove been rescued from the fall.

After all that weve been through,

It all comes down to me and you.

I guess its meant to be,

Forever you and me, after all.



When love is truly right

(this time its truly right.)

It lives from year to year.

It changes as it goes,

Oh, and on the way it grows,

But it never disappears,



Chorus



Always just beyond my touch,

You know I needed you so much.

After all, what else is livin for?



Chorus-repeat



Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me - Mel Carter



Hold me, hold me

Never let me go until you've told me, told me

What I want to know and then just hold me, hold me

Make me tell you I'm in love with you



Thrill me (thrill me), thrill me (thrill me)

Walk me down the lane where shadows

will be (will be) will be (will be)

Hiding lovers just the same as we'll be, we'll be

When you make me tell you I love you



They told me "Be sensible with your new love"

"Don't be fooled, thinking this is the last you'll find"

But they never stood in the dark with you, love

When you take me in your arms

and drive me slowly out of my mind




Kiss me (kiss me), kiss me (kiss me)

And when you do, I'll know that you

will miss me (miss me), miss me (miss me)

If we ever say "Adieu", so kiss me, kiss me

Make me tell you I'm in love with you



(Kiss me) kiss me, (kiss me) kiss me

When you do, I'll know that you will

miss me (miss me), miss me (miss me)

If we ever say "Adieu" so kiss me, kiss me

Make me tell you I'm in love with you



(Hold me, thrill me)

(Never, never, never let me go)

(Hold me, thrill me, never, never, never let me go)

Cheesy, but it said exactly what my boyfriend and I were feeling when I left the country last month:



"Remember You're Mine"

Pat Boone



Be faithful, darlin'

While you're away

For when it's summer a heart can stray

And though I'll miss you

Have a wonderful time

But remember, darlin'

Remember you're mine



If you go dancin'

And he holds you tight

And lips are tempted on a summer night

Your heart beats faster

When the stars start to shine

Just remember, darlin'

Remember you're mine



I'll be lonely, I'll be blue

But I promise I'll be true



And though I'll miss you

Have a wonderful time

But remember, darlin'

Remember you're mine

Remember you're mine

Its not really about "love", nor has it been formalized into a real "song", in the traditional sense.....but my pick::



I Will Never Be Untrue*--The Doors



Quote:
"I will Always be True/

Never go out/

sneakin' out on You, babe/

If you'll only show me/

Far Arden again"




[taken from the "American Prayer" version, "Angels and Sailors" track on that disk]



*faints*



((*not on any of their studio albums, but there was a track on a post-humorous compilation and pieces of it on An American Prayer, for all the Doors purists out there ))



....and of course, Crazy *****--Buckcherry

"you know, nowhere in the bible does it say that jesus was not a raptor"

Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE this song! It brings me to tears every time, not that it's so much a romantic love song, but a love song from a parent to a child... at least that's how it seems in 'Tarzan'. I sing it to my kids but sometimes I choke up and can't finish it. Yeah, I'm a sappy Mom that way.

Oh, and my favorite romantic-type love songs are:



"Lost In This Moment With You" - Big And Rich



Lost in this moment with you

I am completely consumed

My feeling's so absolute

There's no doubt

Sealing our love with a kiss

Waited my whole life for this

Watching all my dreams come true

Lost in this moment with you




Shania Twain "From This Moment On..."



And I do LOVE "Light That Never Goes Out" by The Smiths, but not as a "romantic" song so much...

This is my favourite love song. I hi-lighted the bit the speaks to my heart the most.



Where Peacful water flow by Chris de Burgh



Restless hearts, it has been along time,

Out here on the journey, for a glimpse of paradise,

It's getting hard to find a place to go,

Where peaceful water flow;



I took a walk past the old Saxon well,

Down by the cathedral I heard the chapel bell,

And joined the people singing for a way to go,

Where peaceful waters flow;



And if you don't know by now, you never will,

Only love can find the door,

If you could see it now, it's in your hand,

Only love can reach the shore to heaven,



Always, she is standing by my side,

She's my inspiration, and she's my battle cry,

And in her arms is the only place I know,

Where peaceful waters flow;




And if you don't know by now, you never will,

Only love can find the door,

If you could see it now it's in your hand,

Only love can reach the shore, forevermore,

Where peaceful waters flow. . .

Unchained Melody by The Righteous Brothers is incredible. Not only is the song awesome, but it's one of my all time favorite song *names*.



Pretty much any romantic song U2 ever did, before they started sucking around the POP era.



I have many more.

Damn you.



Its the artist's perception of "love" that makes it a "Love Song", to me.
