"Maps" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs & "Pale Blue Eyes" from The Velvet Underground are good choices that would stand out.

I also wholeheartledy agree with whomever mentioned "At Last" by Etta James. I never thought much of the song (always came off a tad mushy) but i went to a wedding a few months ago and the bride & groom used it as their song and it looked very heartwarming and romantic.

hope that helped...

Like I tell everyone who wants a suggestions for a mix CD, get some Tom Waits. It's all just a matter of which song to go with.

For this, I recommend "Time", "Coney Island Baby" and "Picture in a Frame".

But I serve red wine with fish, what the hell do I know?

See...you have a fine, legitimate point, then ruin it by making fun of yourself. For shame, Brian...for shame.

I hate to bring country into this, but "Amazed" by Lonestar is great.

I actually have all those Waits songs, though Picture in a Mirror might be the only one I'd use. Plus, it just seems wrong to use Waits as love songs somehow:-)

And I don't mind country being thrown in at all.

Jimmy Buffett's "Why Don't We Get Drunk and Screw"?






Just kidding. I really hate that Amazed song though...but that may just be me.

"Meow!" Whoo-psssshhhhh

Maybe I'm cynic when it comes to this stuff, but I was always fond of "Two out of three ain't bad", Meatloaf.

Tom Waits is more for when you're alone on a Saurday night drinking, two steps away from calling ex-girlfriends... not that I would know, mind you.

And his new album is pretty damn good, too.

I dislike Lonestar, as well, Their only good albums were the ones where John Rich was involved.

TO add to the list...If you don't recognise any or all of the songs here, I always find that lesser known songs offer more opportunities to learn. I mean, while CRAZY FOR YOU from Madonna may be a really nice, romantic song, I'd heard it a million times. Songs on this list...well, chances are, you'd never heard them before. Aside from the KISS song, or the Dana Glover song (which was played during the end credits of the first SHREK song)

WHEREVER WOULD I BE - Darry Hall & Dusty Springfield
FEELS LIKE FOREVER - Joe Cocker
IT IS YOU (I HAVE LOVED) - Dana Glover
FOREVER - KISS
BEAUTIFUL IN MY EYES - Joshua Kadison

..and for country...
YEARS FROM HERE - Baker & Myers
THERE'S NO WAY - Alabama
I FELL - Brady Seals
UNDER THE RAINBOW - Jenny Simpson
THERE'S ONLY YOU - Kevin Sharpe

How about:

I Wanna Know What Love Is - Foreigner
Endless Love - Lionel Richie and Diana Ross (What? Friends listen to Endless Love in the dark???)
We've Got Tonight - Bob Seger
At This Moment - Billy Vera and the Beaters (I don't care for it, but I know a few ladies who do) EDIT: On second thought, this is more of a "slit your wrists" song, I'd guess.


And Etta James' "At Last" (you suggested) is easily my favorite romantic song. Good call.

Just about anything from "North" by Elvis Costello would work, too--almost every song on there is incredibly romantic and lovely, although ones that stand out would have to be "Fallen," "Still," and "Let Me Tell You About Her."

Captain Beefheart - "Her Eyes Are A Blue Million Miles"

Considering the Captain's reputation, this is a beautiful love song.

I'm kinda surprised I haven't seen "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds in this thread. Maybe not the most traditional lyrics for a love song, but it's one of my personal favorites.

SOK, Forever was cowritten by Michael Bolton, and thus, is automatically disqualified from being a good song. Sorry, its just the rules.

i really don't know whether you're going for happy romantic, sad romantic, or retrospective romantic, but if you're interested, there's areally sad song from Amanda Marshall called BEAUTIFUL GOODBYE that's hauntingly beautiful.

AND...why not mix it up again? Put a beautiful sonata from Beethoven on it -- I think his Piano Sonata No.8 ("Pathétique") is really touching. Its one of my favorites.

So who cares if Michael Bolton co-wrote that song? Paul Stanley wrote it too, and I found him to be a fantastic songwriter. KISS's monster ballads were tremendous. Reading up a bit, you're basing your "rules" on Bolton's lackluster cover of the Percy Sledge song "When A Man Loves A Woman".

But to each their own, I guess.
