Okay, so it's 2 days before Valentine's Day..time to burn those last minute CDs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> I posted a couple of days ago of my affection for <a href="http://www.seeklyrics.com/lyrics/Marvin-Gaye/How-Sweet-It-Is-To-Be-Loved-By-You.html" target="_blank">How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You</a><br><br><br><br>
So, what are the songs that make you swoon?<br><br><br><br>
On my playlist:<br><br>
In My Life...The Beatles<br><br>
Wonderful Tonight..Eric Clapton<br><br>
You Are the Sunshine of My Life...Stevie Wonder<br><br>
Happy Together...The Turtles<br><br>
At Last....Etta James<br><br>
I Feel the Earth Move....Carole King<br><br><br><br>
and of course,<br><br>
Close to You...the Carpenters (sung loudly and with passion!)<br><br><br><br>
My favorite line though, is this one from James Taylor's "Copperline":<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">The first kiss, ever I took...like a page from a romance book...the sky opened and the earth shook...</div>
</div>
<br>
Oh yeah, baby.<br><br><br><br>
<<<sneaks away to find her love in a warm bed

Me and my fiance are huge Frank Sinatra fans, and our favorite song of his is probably "I've Got You Under My Skin", but there are *so* many others we love it's hard to pick just one... "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye is another favorite. Let's see... Guns N' Roses' "Patience", Extreme's "More Than Words", Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven", Aerosmith's "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing"...

Don't forget "Storybook Love"! Transports me back to my 5th grade crush... That song was worth the price of the whole CD. Back in the day before iTunes, of course.

<span style="color:#008000;">Nobody's mentioned anything by the Isley brothers yet? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> Only about 1/2 of their catalog is devoted to sweet lovin'! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I will just name one specific song that pops to mind:<br><br><i>Be Without You</i> by Mary J. Blige.<br><br><br><br></span>

Our song is Where Peaceful Waters flow by Chris deBurgh<br><br><b>Always, she is standing by my side.<br><br>
She's my inspiration,<br><br>
she's my battle cry.<br><br>
And in her arms is the only place I know<br><br>
where peaceful waters flow.</b><br><br><br><br>
But the song Spiderman used to propose to me 17 years ago this month was this one by the Sweet Comfort Band.<br><br><br><br><b>If I had a dime for every time<br><br>
I've had you on my mind<br><br>
They would stretch on down the highway<br><br>
In an endless line<br><br>
If I had a dime for everytime<br><br>
I've thought about us two<br><br>
I could buy myself a lifetime<br><br>
Just to spend on you<br><br><br><br>
And maybe you could care for someone<br><br>
Just like me<br><br>
Maybe you're in need of somone<br><br>
Just like me<br><br><br><br>
Now I told you how I hold you<br><br>
In my highest esteem<br><br>
I hope you don't disapprove of me<br><br>
If I'm not what I seem<br><br>
As a matter of fact<br><br>
I've been holding back<br><br>
The way I really feel<br><br>
Cuz I've been afraid<br><br>
Of what you might say<br><br>
If my heart had been revealed<br><br><br><br>
And maybe you could care for someone<br><br>
Just like me<br><br>
Maybe you're in need of somone<br><br>
Just like me<br><br><br><br>
Well, I'm no Knight in shining armor<br><br>
I'm No prince charming, I agree<br><br>
But what lack in might and valor<br><br>
I'll make up in honesty<br><br><br><br>
So, here I go<br><br>
I will try to show<br><br>
How much for you I care<br><br>
But the value that I place in you<br><br>
Is far beyond compare<br><br>
You mean more to me<br><br>
Than the eye can see<br><br>
But your heart can understand<br><br>
That I'm talkin of the kind of love<br><br>
To a woman from a man<br><br><br><br>
And maybe you could care for someone<br><br>
Just like me<br><br>
Maybe you're in need of somone<br><br>
Just like me<br><br>
Maybe deep inside you're feelin'<br><br>
Just like me<br><br>
And maybe you could marry someone<br><br>
Just like me</b><br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:">

*chuckle* if we're gonna get silly, nothing beats Dolly Parton's <a href="http://www.cowboylyrics.com/lyrics/parton-dolly/marry-me-13955.html" target="_blank">Marry Me</a> (sung in "Dolly voice" of course)<br><br><br><br>
I mean, how can you beat..."We'll hold hands, touch and hug. He talks so sweet to me. Cuz he knows a lot about love and stuff, and he's gonna marry me." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">
