11. In Spite of Ourselves - John Prine & Iris Dement


My list, topped (as usual) only moments' later by Scott's brilliant brainstorm of his own.

Angel Eyes - John Hiatt (my wedding 1st dance)
Woman - John Lennon

The Luckiest - Ben Folds
You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go - Bob Dylan
If Only You Were Lonely - The Replacements

And now I feel stupid for not having "God Only Knows" on there. Perhaps we shall call it 10 1/2?

I've also realized a good chunk of these love songs - at least half - are either sad, desperate, or both. Fun place, my world.


Brought me out of lurk mode for this one..

You're The Biggest Part of Me - Ambrosia

When I See You Smile - Bad English

Better Days - Springsteen

Orchard Road - Leo Sayer

Swayin' To The Music - Johnny Rivers

Beautiful In My Eyes - Joshua Kadison

You and Me - Lifehouse

Even Now - Barry Manilow

Love of the Heart Divine - Chris Deburgh

True Companion - Marc Cohn

(apparently in my mind, all love songs are sung by men?? - you learn something new every day)

Sara In Va -

"Groovy Kind of Love."

I gotsta tell ya. THAT is one inspired choice.

There are two things in this world I wish I thought of first.

One, of course, is Hot Pockets.

But the other is exactly what you wrote. "Groovy Kind of Love" is just a magnificent selection.



I'll add my list for what it's worth
Crush - Dave Matthews Band
How Deep Is The Ocean - Etta James
Slow Dance - John Legend
Flying High - Jem
Have A Little Faith In Me - Jewel
I've Fallen In Love With You - Joss Stone
Cherish The Day - Sade
Time To Make You Mine - Lisa Stansfield

Strong Enough - Sheryl Crow


You're the Best Thing -- Style Council
I Will -- The Beatles
Gypsy -- Suzanne Vega
Signed, Sealed, Delivered -- Stevie Wonder
You Don't Know Me -- Ray Charles
Just Can't Get Enough -- Depeche Mode
Only One -- James Taylor
You Make Me Feel (Like a Natural Woman) -- Aretha
Something to Talk About -- Bonnie Raitt
I Am Yours -- Derek and the Dominos


Wow! Good stuffs here. I must say, Tay got me with "I Am Yours," a song I recently realized--and I mean recently, as in a few weeks ago--that I had been unjustly neglecting for twenty years. What an unbelievably beautiful song, lost in the brilliant maelstrom that is very possibly the greatest double album of all time.

And "Gypsy?" Oh my. If I could marry Suzanne Vega's voice I would. Not her. Just her voice.

But I cannot. Because, of course, I am already deliriously happily married.

And that's the only reason.


Oh! Useless, time-consuming tasks! LOVE!

2. Essence-Lucinda Williams
3. Wish You Were Here-Pink Floyd
4. Time in a Bottle-Jim Croce

10.Because the Night-Patti Smith
