Just an Old-Fashioned Love Song

As most of you know by now, The Soundtrack of My Life is always running through my mind.  Everything I do (and everything I make) seems to have a song attached.  So. . . this week's Ten on Tuesday topic is both intriguing AND challenging for me. 

This week's topic:  Ten Favorite Love Songs.  Ten?  Only Ten?  I'm not sure I'm capable. . . of getting to ten.  But I'll try!

1.  Fields of Gold - Sting


2.  Layla - Eric Clapton (Derek & the Dominoes)   


3.  Because the Night - Patti Smith


4.  Songbird - Fleetwood Mac (Christine McVie)


5.  Your Song - Elton John


6.  Unchained Melody - Righteous Brothers


7.  Best of My Love - The Eagles


8.  The Air That I Breathe - The Hollies (k.d. lang has an awesome version, too)


9.  You Are the Sunshine of My Life - Stevie Wonder


9.25.  Me & Mrs. Jones - Billy Paul


9.50.  Sara Smile - Hall & Oates

10.  Our House - Crosby Stills Nash & Young


Okay.  So I was close -- just a couple over!  What are YOUR favorite love songs?

A BIG Yeah for Sara Smile! I'm a HUGE Hall and Oates fan--AKA "groupie!" You picked some good ones Kym


Great choices. Me and Mrs. Jones...makes me think of being a kid, summertime and riding in the car with my Mom. Good stuff!


Hi Kym ,
Wow , you chose such beautiful songs !!!
The best of my love ,The Eagles, was a song that used to be every day on the Canadian radio when I arrived in 1976 as a 22 year old in a new country that became my home .So many memories ....


Oh dear, this subject highlights a character flaw of mine. I am no fan of love songs. In fact, they usually bring out a gag reflex. Sad, but true and certainly not attractive. I do love some Patti Smith, however.


The Air That I Breathe, such a perfect song for this list! Happy Tuesday!


Excellent! Your Song is the song my first husband and I danced to as our wedding dance. And I absolutely LOVE Songbird.


Excellent list! I'd add "Harvest Moon" by Neil Young.


I ran over the "10" list too. There are so many songs I could put on this list. I love that you included Fleetwood Mac. What a great band.


Great choices. Me and Mrs Jones bring back many memories of my parents who would get up and dance when it came on the radio. I posted my list and they are all tearjerkers... ☺


Fields of Gold is a favorite of mine as well. The last three years I've been teaching advanced math to a small group of 5th graders -- besides teaching them math, I've introduced them to Fields of Gold. I have a CD of instrumental music that I play during tests and any homework time they have. You haven't lived till you've sat with six 5th graders, all humming Fields of Gold ;-). It's the only one they sing along to.


Wonderful list!


you picked some really cool songs...we do have one that is alike...

I could have gone on and on with those songs...I love music...


Great songs!
