Every year for the past three or four years, I've been making my wife a "romantic favorites" mix Cd from songs I've downloaded from i-Tunes and Napster... every year it gets just a little bit harder to find just the "right" songs that reflect the feelings of both of us... I thought this might be a fun exercise if we all could list 20-28 songs that we like and also that reflect what we think our romance with our "significant other" is like... here's my lst from 2009...

1. SOMEBODY TO LOVE -- Queen
2. TAKING A CHANCE ON LOVE -- Frank Sinatra

19. WITH THIS RING -- The Platters
20. HOTEL HAPPINESS -- Brook Benton
21. TUPELO HONEY -- Van Morrison
22. STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU -- Big, Bad Voodoo Daddy
23. OH, WHAT A NIGHT -- The Dells

and 2008...

1. Let's Fall In Love -- James Darren
2. I Will -- The Beatles
3. Oh, Babe, What Would You Say -- Hurricane Smith
4. Kissin' Time -- Bobby Rydell
5. Hallelujah, I Just Love Her So -- Ray Charles
6. Time After Time -- Chris Montez
7. I Need Your Love Tonight -- Elvis Presley
8. Every Day With You Girl -- Dennis Yost and the Classics IV
9. Can't Take My Eyes Off You -- Frankie Valli
10. Cara Mia -- Jay and the Ameicans
11. You're The First, The Last, My Everything -- Barry White
12. A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square -- Bobby Darin
13. Morning, Beautiful -- Tony Orlando & Dawn
14. You Are My Sunshine -- Rickie Nelson
15. Play Me -- Neil Diamond
16. As Long As There's a Shadow -- Roger Miller
17. Buona Sera -- Louis Prima
18. Because They're Young -- James Darren
19. My Cup Runneth Over -- Ed Ames

"I Will" was our wedding song... but we went with the Ben Taylor version because it had more instrumentality and was easier to dance to...

My mix for this year includes your number four pick, RadioJon... except, instead of The Pretenders, I chose the Celtic Thunder version... something about drunken Irishmen... cheesy
