Love Mix

I was tagged by Denise to create a list of what I think are the all-time greatest love songs. Now, I love you, Denise, but I have to say that I actually think love songs are really cheesy and the cornyness usually makes me laugh outloud. Sorry. Luckily, Jared is the same way so we usually end up having a laugh together, which is just as good for the soul. But, just for fun, here are some of the love songs that come to mind when I think back to our high school days as young lovebirds:

1. End of the Road/ Boyz II Men (I love how I knew it was two i's and not the word 'to' or a '2'.)
2. Always/ Bon Jovi (I can't believe 'Bon Jovi' is now on my blog.)
3. After All That We've Been Through/ Chicago (Okay, not actually from my time, but my dad had the tape)
4. My Heart Will Go On/ Celine Dion (which my hubby and I danced to as Prom King and Queen- thank you very much)
5. Show Me Love/ Robyn (really makes us smile because we deemed it 'our song' when we were 16)
6. It's Your Love/ Tim McGraw and Faith Hill (I know this is a repeat of Denise's, but it is very lovey)
7. Secret Garden/ Bruce Springsteen (You know, that one from Jerry Maguire. I was seriously addicted to it, and Jared would play it over the phone for me like 117 times in one night. He's going to love that I posted that.)
8. Head Over Feet/ Alanis Morissette
9. Don't Speak/ No Doubt (Actually a song about breaking up, but, hey, sometimes things just don't work out. They did for us, of course, but I guess things don't work out for some people...)
10. I Think We're Alone Now/ Tiffany (Way before Jared and I got together, but my sister had the tape and we would blast it on her little pink radio and dance around our room. So fun!)

I was going to stop with ten, but I wouldn't be true to myself if I didn't include a song from the greatest singing group of all time....that's right....NKOTB is in the house...

11. Please Don't Go Girl/ New Kids on the Block (Not sung by favorite member of NKOTB, but a great love song all the same.)

So, there it is. Now, pop in your mix tape (or turn on your iPod, whatever) and have a very romantic and happy Valentine's Day while rockin' these slow jams with the one you love. (Maybe I really could be a DJ....)
Feel free to add your own favorite love songs as a comment here or as your own list on your blog.

Thanks for playing! :) I love "Secret Garden" as well and had I thought of it, it might have made my list.

Chicago - now they have some awesome love songs.

My list is up. Maybe I need to sneak a Chicago song into my list. I'll have to listen to their greatest hits cd and pick one out.
