    Re: Love Songs You Love

    A few (very few of the) way-overplayed, yet still great "old school" (mostly 70'-80's) classics...
    • Always and Forever - Heatwave
    • Reasons - Earth, Wind & Fire
    • Love Will Lead You Back, I'll Always Love You - Taylor Dayne
    • (For You) I'd Chase A Rainbow, Dorothy Louise (break-up song) - Kalapana


    From that same era, a few mainstream pop/rock/metal power ballads!... (bust out your lighter)
    • Faithfully, Open Arms - Journey
    • Every Breath You Take, Wrapped Around Your Finger - The Police
    • Still Lovin' You - Scorpions
    • Headed for a Heartbreak (break-up) - Winger
    • Every Rose Has Its Thorn (break-up) - Poison
    • November Rain (break-up) - Guns 'N' Roses
    • Love Comes Walking In - Van Halen
    • Is This Love? - Whitesnake


    Sade is always high on my "love songs" play list. Almost the entire LOVE DELUXE album was like the music of my heart in a past relationship, all composed in one entire, perfectly done album, from beginning to end.

    Note: YouTube's got videos of almost everything suggested in this thread.

She even set up a Finetunes "V-Day List" online radio station to feature some of them.
    Yeesh. I just looked through the list. How did Steve Windwood get on the list? At No. 40 no less. "Take on Me" and "Come on Eileen" made it before "When I Fall in Love" by Nat King Cole.
    Look at his picture. This guy must be single and living in the basement of his parents house.

    Since some people are having a major 80's flashback here I'll contribute to the cause. Here's some 80's from artists begining with "A". Don't ask for more cause I've got pages of this junk and you'll be sorry.

    Air Supply
    • Any one of their mushy songs can go here

    The first time I heard this song was in the movie The Last American Virgin. That last part of the movie when the girl goes back to the guy who knocked her up and Lionel's voice starts....No matter how nice you are you don't necessarily get the girl........."Oh No"

    Not to go off topic I wanted to break something when I saw that.
    My ending would have been slapping da stupid girl and sucker punch da idiot dat knocked her up

    Actually, scriv, I was surprised you didn't start the day with a "solace for the lovelorn" anti-Valentine's Day thread. This thread is way too conventional, but playing with Finetune I couldn't resist.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to race home to my patient wife and crazy kids and take them out to dinner. I don't have a valentine... I've got a whole gaggle of 'em!

    Any harried parent love songs out there?

    Ah, scrivener. Of course.

    Okay, anti-love songs, breakup songs, and other VD-backlash songs are a category unto themselves. Here's a list from NPR, here's some you can download (today only, and the file host sucks), and here's a whole blog about them (also with some MP3s). I've got a good playlist for this stuff, too.

    But as I mentioned in the original post, I'll looking for mostly straightforward love songs. A category in which there's still quite a bit of variety and certainly a fair helping of winking and sarcasm!

    • "Goodbye to Love" by the Carpenters. There are no tomorrows for this heart of mine...
    • "I am a Rock" by Paul Simon. And a rock feels no pain. And an island never cries.

    Wow. You've been busy! A good mix in there, too. Some classics, some rock, some... different.

    Well, I've nicked about a dozen tracks from jkpescador's play list, just so the "VD@HT Playlist" can go live. But keep posting your picks and I'll add them to the mix, and you can have an internet radio station of sorts express HT's love for y'all.

    Here is my playlist from finetune.com:
    http://www.finetune.com/playlist/1359060

    I'm having fun. It's a work in progress.

    It's the ultimate mix tape for your sweetie. Perhaps my playlist will change when I'm mad at her. Haha! Just kidding.

    Re: Love Songs You Love

    Let's see. Off the top of my head...
    • "At Last," Etta James
    • "Crazy On You," Heart
    • "Like Someone in Love," Bjork
    • "Could I Have This Dance," Ann Murray
    • "If I Had $1,000,000," Barenaked Ladies
    • "Let's Stay Together," Al Green
    • "Another First Kiss," They Might Be Giants
    And several Hawaiian songs, E Ho'i I Ka Pili, E Ho'i Mai, E Maliu Mai, Ku'ulei Ku'uipo...

    Only about half of these tracks are available at Finetune, so I still need about 20 more to launch a streaming station. Hope jkpescador chimes in soon with his picks -- he inspired me in the first place!
