Twelve best Love Songs in my opinion:
OK, I know Valentines Day was last week but I intended to post these then. Anyone agree? Anyone think I am full of crap? What are your choices? Anyway here are mine. I could have posted 50 but decided to post these as they came to mind:

Beautiful - Gordon Lightfoot
Make Love Stay - Dan Fogelberg
I go Crazy - Paul Davis
Your Song - Elton John
Annie's Song - John Denver
If - Bread
I Honestly Love You - Olivia Newton John
Time in a Bottle - Jim Croci
Shadows - Gordon Lightfoot
Just Remember I love you - Firefall
Something's Telling Me It Might Be You - Stephen Bishop
Please Come to Boston - Loggins

Buy the way if there are any outdoorsy, beautiful, intellectual, artistic, amazing women out there who agree with my selections I am available.

2. What about...
Evergreen, by Striesand. I think that one is awesome. And Longer, by Dan Fogelberg.

4. "And I Love You So" by Don McLean is a great love song . . .
Edited on Sat Feb-21-04 03:54 AM by OneBlueSky
And I love you so
The people ask me how
How I've lived till now
I tell them I don't know

I guess they understand
How lonely life has been
But life began again
The day you took my hand

And yes I know how lonely life can be
The shadows follow me
And the night won't set me free
But I don't let the evening bring me down
Now that you're around me

And you love me too
Your thoughts are just for me
You set my spirit free
I'm happy that you do

The book of life is brief
And once a page is read
All but love is dead
That is my belief

And I love you so
The people ask me how
How I've lived till now
I tell them I don't know

8. "Dancing Shoes" off the Netherlands album

Sorry, but I hate all these songs :) No offense.

My favorite love song? "Lil' Darlin," Count Basie.

6. That's cool if everyone liked these songs the world would be a
very boring place. I am glad there are a lot of different opinions.

was going by the dates these songs came out!

11. The Way You Look Tonight. by Jerome Kern and
while you may not think of him as a love song kind of guy, a few Dylan songs such as

Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands
I Want You
To Make You Feel My Love (a little gushy)
