I'm trying to put together a CD of really good romantic songs, and I'd like suggestions from people. Some possibilities are as follows:
These Arms of Mine: Otis Redding Endless Love: Luther Vandross Three Times a Lady: Lionel Richie and the Commodores Turn the Lights Down Low: Smoky Robinson Easy: Lionel Richie and the Commodores (maybe) Crazy Love: Van Morrison and Bob Marley (maybe) At Last - Etta James When I Look in Your Eyes - Etta James
There isn't a lady alive that wouldn't melt for Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes."
Also, since you seem to favor the oldies: Billie Holiday - As Time Goes By (any version of that song is nice, but I like this one the best) Dean Martin - You're Nobody 'Till Somebody Loves You Tony Bennett - The Way You Look Tonight (Frank Sinatra does a great version too) Patsy Cline - Crazy
Finally, a nice modern one is Sarah McLachlan's "Ice Cream," it is super-cute!
Trust me, I have matching X chromosomes, I know my romantic songs
It's all relative, of course. Some people like love themes from Disney Animation or 80s hair band power ballads or 70s R&B schlock... But this bunch'll do you right any time:
Otis Redding - Try a Little Tenderness Al Greene - Let's Stay Together Carmen MacRae - Every Time We Say Goodbye Crash Vegas - Smoke Lemonheads - Into Your Arms Mazzy Star - Fade Into You Elvis Costello - Almost Blue Stan Rogers - 45 Years Ben Harper - Forever Chet Baker - Time After Time Lowest of the Low - Subversives (relatively obscure, but do yourself a favor and try to find it)
I'm sure there's more I'm missing, but I'm nowhere near my CD collection.

The fact that it took until post #10 for someone to mention "God Only Knows" by the Beach Boys makes me think ill of the W community.
Disclaimer: I have 3,000+ posts here. This means I don't date as often as I should A few I'll throw out from just scanning my Media Player list, mostly sort of newer stuff, since the standards are pretty well trod here: "Sway" - Bic Runga "In The Morning/Crazy Happy" - Brenda Weiler "Runaway" - The Corrs "Fall at Your Feet" - Crowded House "Collide" - Howie Day "Try Whistling This" - Neil Finn "The World Can Wait" - Over The Rhine "Strange Currencies", "At My Most Beautiful" - REM "Have I Told You Lately" - Van Morrison
The hell with the witty cartoon. They won, there's really nothing worth laughing about right now. There is only the prospect of endless war and endless death.
Originally posted by dMpThink about you - Guns N' Roses It's not a ballad, hell it's pure rock-n-roll but one of the most romantic songs I've ever heard..
Trying to come up with something that you could probably use..but my mind draws a blank...
If you are going Guns N' Roses, shouldn't 'I used to love her but I had to kill her' be up there? Always a good song to request at weddings. Especially when the bar has been open a few hours. Cheap Trick: The Flame. Phil Collins/Genesis: One More Night. And, I hate to admit this, Manilow does work.

I'm sitting here with my girlfriend right now and we are doing this together, how ironic.
"Every move you Make" - The Eagles "Something" - The Beatles "when a Man Loves a Woman" - Michael Bolton "Baby I Love Your Way" - Peter Frampton "Come Away With Me" - Nora Jones "My Heart Will Go On" - Celine Dion "Come What May" - Moulin Rouge Soundtrack

My best friend's wedding is in about two weeks. Please don't give me ideas. :D

"Every move you Make" - The Eagles
Thats by THE POLICE.
As for me, let's see...I hate to admit this, but a lot of the girls I know melt for sappy Backstreet Boys. Maybe it's the thin air...
"Every Breath You Take" is by The Police. Thin air, indeed.
As for contributing to this thread, Mrs. JJD suggests "Heaven" by Bryan Adams, and "Open Arms" and "Faithfully" by Journey. "Just the Way You Are" and "She's Always a Woman" by Billy Joel aren't bad, either.

Moby's Hotel Sampler The iTMS has seven minutes from Moby's upcoming album Hotel. Maybe I'm just getting older, but it seems like the more Moby broadens his horizons, the less interested I am in his product.
