For those of us who came of age in the 80s and 90s there was no greater romantic gesture than making a mix tape for the one you loved. Which is why, blogosphere, in honor of February 14th, I made you a mix tape. Of love songs. Because it's Valentine's Day.
The Beatles acoustic rendition of Something [In The Way She Moves] is one of the most insanely beautiful songs ever sung.
Cyndi Lauper's emotional wailing of True Colors cuts through to my cold cold heart every time.
Storybook Love by Mark Knopfler is the theme to one of the greatest love stories ever told: The Princess Bride.
If you don't think think that Every Rose Has It's Thorn tops it's genre of Power Ballads then Bret Michaels didn't make a reality show called Daddy Issues On A Bus. (Wait...)
I know I've kept this list kind of retro (what can I say, my parents had a HUGE impact on my musical tastes) so I'm opting for Adele's stunningly beautiful cover of the Cure's Lovesong -- which makes me feel like I'm getting felt up for the first time, every time. (What?)
So that's it, Internet! Hope you and yours are having a wonderful V-day! What is your all-time favorite love song?
