Write Back Weekend: "Love To Love Ya, Baby"

In honor of V-Day I asked all of you to tell me the songs that make your heart skip a beat. Some of you, I must say, have excellent taste, my own.

Let me say that for someone who has been so "in love" with music over the years that this was a very hard list for me to make. After careful consideration, I almost think there should a seperate list for the best sad songs. On my list there are songs of heartbreak, others of love that's been requited. Then there are a few that are just thrown in because they are romantic, for whatever the reason, to me.

Here, favorites of the faves in bold, is the somewhat abridged list of the songs about love that I hope you Google the ones you don't know and let me know what you think. I wouldn't ever tell you to download them. That would just be wrong.
