    L.O.V.E. "L is for the way you look at me, O is for the only one I see, etc." -- there are many versions and not sure who wrote it but the recording I like best is by Nat King Cole. It is catchy, fun, and easy, could be good for community fun choir.

    On The Radio by Donna Summer (This always makes me think of a woman I loved so much).

    Suicide Is Painless (Not really a love song, but it was me and my wife's song)

    So This is Love by Van Halen

    catherine's nomination of "Just The Way You Are" is a great one. I like several of the others, as well.

    Songs we played at our wedding included Al Green's "Let's Stay Together", Genesis' "Follow Me, Follow You", Firefall's "You Are The Woman", and some other songs not known for being heard at weddings and tied more to it being a wedding (and a second one for each of us at that).

    Other songs I can think of would include Sam Cooke's "Wonderful World", Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called To Say I Love You", The Captain and Tenille's "Love Will Keep Us Together", and Beyonce's/Jay-Z's "Crazy In Love". Some of those could be a lot of fun to sing!

    Yes, let us know what "won"! (whether it's one of our suggestions or not!)

    As Time Goes By from Casablanca is one we had the piano player play at our wedding. We had kind of a thing for Bogart and Bacall when we were younger.

    I think one of the most romantic songs ever written is "Crazy Love" by Van Morrison. Also, in a different vein, but I think is incredibly romantic but in a sexy way is Leonard Cohen's "Take This Waltz".

    ooh, yeah, Van Morrison: "Have I told you lately that I love you..."

    Another Leon Russell one I love is "This Masquerade." Kind of wistful, and the melody is so, so hypnotic:

    Are we really happy with this lonely game we play?
    Looking for words to say, searching but not finding understanding anyway
    We're lost in this masquerade

    Both afraid to say we're just too far away
    From being close together from the start
    We tried to talk it over but the words got in the way
    We're lost inside this lonely game we play

    Thoughts of leaving disappear every time I see your eyes
    No matter how hard I try
    To understand the reasons why we carry on this way
    We're lost in a masquerade
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!
