    Favourite love songs?

    I sing in a community fun choir once a month. For February, the director has asked for some love song ideas for Valentines Day.
    What songs would you include in a list of love songs?

    I've always loved Billy Joel's I Love You Just The Way You Are.

    I would have to break it down by genres.

    COUNTRY:
    A real nice one,
    When You Say Nothin At All - kieth Whitley or Alison Krauss

    But In 1955 Kitty Wells charted this one written by Jimmy Work and covered by nearly every Country music star since. I pick it because my dad sang it and when he did it seemed like there was an untold story in his past.

    It has all all the makings of a perfect country song. A steel guitar, a key change in the middle, a honky tonk piano and a sad story.

    I chose the version by Emmy Lou Harris..... “Making Believe”

    Here is one that probably no one has heard of, but I LOVE this love song. I think it's in my top 3:

    ETA: Also, I love Paul McCartney so I have to put in votes for:
    When I'm 64
    I Will
    Maybe I'm Amazed

    "I love you in a place where there's no space or time
    I love you for my life, 'cause you're a friend of mine
    And when my life is over, remember when we were together
    We were alone and I was singin' my song for you"
    --Leon Russell
    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!

    George Harrison, Eric Clapton... Something.
    Eric Clapton.. Wonderful Tonight

    EDIT: made me think about one that was also written for another gal who had two songs written for her. Peter Gabriel... Your Eyes
    Marc Cohn.. True Companion

    And my favorite, the one that makes people give you that look then laugh:
