Top Ten Love Songs That Always Work

Valentine’s Day is two weeks away. Instead of roses (from the grocery store on the way home from work), would you mind getting a mixtape of love songs to play while you open those new diamond stud earrings?

Here are Ten Love Songs That Always Work.

#10. Van Morrison – “Someone Like You”

Why? Because it’s kind of like “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You” without the cliche of playing “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You.”

#9. Joan Armatrading – “Recommend My Love”

Why? Armatrading has never sounded sexier and the lyrics — “This may sound emotional, I have a deep sense of holding on, I’m gonna wrap you in my love” — should make her melt. The [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bonnie Raitt[/lastfm] meets the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Temptations[/lastfm] harmonies don’t hurt.

#8. Earth, Wind And Fire – “I’ll Write a Song for You”

Why? “I thirst but never quench, I know the consequence of feeling like I do.” Do I need to say anymore?

#7. The Osmonds – “Puppy Love”

Why? I played this for my wife the night I proposed and we’ve been married twenty years. Having said that, I admit this could go either way, depending on your lady’s sense of humor. If you don’t dare play this one, I recommend the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Clash[/lastfm]’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go” as a replacement.

#6. Cowboy Junkies – “Anniversary Song”

Why? “And I don’t know how I survived those days, before I held your hand.” If it doesn’t work for her, Margo Timmins voice should work for you.

#5. Barenaked Ladies – “If I Had a Million Dollars”

Why? Because you need to break up the serious “I can’t live without you” stuff with a little humor. Who wouldn’t fall for a man who would buy her some art (like a Picasso or a Garfunkel)?

#4. The Proclaimers – “Sunshine On Leith”

Why? My heart was broken. Sorrow, sorrow, sorrow. You saw it, you claimed it, you touched it, you saved it. Seriously, who wouldn’t fall in love with a guy toting this song (and, of course, diamond earrings.)

#3. Sam Cooke – “You Send Me”

Why? Nothing like a bonafide classic to cement the deal. This one actually sounds pretty good following “Sunshine On Leith.”

#2. The Four Tops – “Ain’t No Woman (Like the One I Got)”

Why? ‘Cuz there ain’t no woman like the one you got, isn’t that right?

#1. John Lennon – “Grow Old With Me”

Why? Is there a more beautiful sentiment, especially given how John departed from Yoko’s life? [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Mary Chapin-Carpenter[/lastfm]’s version works, too.
