Re: Entertainment Weekly 50 Best Love Songs Ever

I'm ok with this list. There are really amazing love songs in it. My personal favourites from the lists are :
"perfect day" (simply perfect)
"yellow" (a modern day classic)
"the look of love" (oh my god! this Dusty's voice...)
"your song" (the best Elton John's song with "tiny dancer")
"you send me" (my favourite Sam Cooke's song)
"at last" (beautiful... Etta James is too underrated)
"maybe i'm amazed" (one of my top 3 Macca songs in solo)
"let's stay together" (THE love soul ballad)
"something" (one of my top 3 Beatles songs with "here comes the sun" and "while my guitar...". George, you rule !)
"god only knows" (no needs to comment it)

Re: Entertainment Weekly 50 Best Love Songs Ever

That's hilarious having the Ramones in there
They just don't suit these types of lists...

Re: Entertainment Weekly 50 Best Love Songs Ever

I'm just shocked they didn't put "Wonderwall"...I mean, that is the ONLY Oasis song we still remember in the States

I Thought...

this was posted some time ago. Looks familiar. Like other love-song lists, not AM-eligible, tho.
