    Waiting For A Star To Fall from Boy Meets Girl - I am a bit of cynic when it comes to love songs in general, but I love this one everytime I hear it.

    Love Me Like The World Is Ending - Ben Lee is not my usual taste, but I like this song as its upbeat and catchy and has pretty simple but interesting lyrics.

    Your Body Is A Wonderland by John Mayer - love the guitar work in this and the whole story the song tells in general. Who wouldnt want to be locked up in a hotel room all day with the one they love or lust after :biggrin1:

    I'm young but I like the classics.

    2 of my favorites:

    "For the Love of You" by The Isley Brothers...Soon as I hear the intro my mind eases and I'm just somewhere else.

    "Cry Together" by The O'Jays...So much love in this song, plus I love their voices together.

    I'm a romantic...yup.

    She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5.
    Won't Go Home Without You - Maroon 5
    Back At Your Door - Maroon 5.

    they're wonderfully romantic. i have tons more, but Maroon 5 was the first thing that came to mind. and then there is,

    Come What May - Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor.

    you probably have to watch the movie to feel the power of the song and McGregor's sweet and pure vocals.

    For some reason I think jack johnson's music is pretty damn romantic, along with "The John Butler Trio".

    The Best Example EVER!!! YouTube - Jack Johnson - Girl I Wanna Lay You Down

    "I come over, early in the mornin', i'm like a heatwave without warning. When I touch you, I can feel your heart flutter. I'm smooth and creamy, like peanut-butter. Girl I wanna lay you down..."

    "This Time I'll Be Sweeter" - Angela Bofill
    An almost-forgotten 80's R&B icon that recorded killer love ballads.

    "It Might Be You" & "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" - Roberta Flack
    Flack's interpretation and re-make of these songs far surpasses the original recordings.

    "Have You Ever" - Brandy
    I could not believe how this teen-pop love song grabbed my attention, but it did. Still does.

    "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" - Areosmith
    A great love anthem for a guy.

    This is interesting. My first thought was "My Lady of the Island" by Crosby Still and Nash. It IS extraordinarily beautiful but the fact that it is addressed to/about a woman kind of moves it away form my experience.

    Being gay and very male identified men's songs about women don't connect very well. Similarly, neither do women's songs about men. This is an example of the exclusion of gay people from our culture and, I suspect, a significant source of confusion for gay youth. Hearing these songs as a teenager, and not feeling much, led me to the concusion that I was incapable of romantic love.

    Recently, I stumbled upon a video on u-tube of Ian Tyson, Silvia Fricker, and Judy Collins singing "Someday Soon," which Ian Tyson wrote. He sings the song without changing the pronouns. So here we have this big, handsome, masculine Canadian, country/folk male singer wearing a cowboy hat singing:

    There's a young man that I know
    His age is twenty-one
    Comes from down in southern Colorado
    Just out of service
    And he's looking for his fun
    Someday soon, going with him
    Someday soon

    Then Judy Colllins takes a verse followed by the chorus in which Ian Tyson goes on to sing:

    And when he comes to call
    My Pa don't have a good word to say
    Maybe it's 'cause he was just as wild
    In his early days
    So blow you old blue norther
    Blow my love to me
    He's driving in tonight from California
    He loves his damned old rodeo
    As much as he loves me
    Someday soon, going with him
    Someday soon

    This does it for me in a completely different way. The embedding has been disabled but if you search "someday soon ian" it should be the third video down, just in case anyone is interested.

    You're the whisper of a
    Summer breeze
    You're the kiss that puts my
    Soul at ease
    What I'm saying is I'm
    In to you
    Here's my story, and the
    Story goes
    You give love, you get love
    And more than
    Heaven knows
    You're gonna see
    I'm gonna run, I'm gonna try
    I'm gonna take this love
    Right to ya
    All my heart, all the joy
    Oh baby, baby please

    = chorus: =
    Rush, rush
    Hurry, hurry lover
    Come to me
    Rush, rush
    I wanna see, I wanna see ya
    Get free with me
    Rush, rush
    I can feel it, I can feel you
    All through me
    Rush, rush
    Ooh what you do to me

    And all I want from you is
    What you are
    And even if you're right
    Next to me
    You're still too far away
    If I'm not inside your arms
    I get dramatic baby
    Yes I know
    But I need you, I want you
    Ooh man, I love you so
    Ooh, ooh
    You're gonna see
    I'm gonna run, I'm gonna try
    I'm gonna take this love
    Right to ya
    All my heart, all the joy
    Oh baby, baby please

    = chorus x 2 =

    When you kiss me
    Up and down
    Turn my senses all around
    Oh baby, oh baby
    I don't know
    Just how or why
    But no one else
    Has touched me
    So deep, so deep
    So deep inside

    You're gonna see
    I'm gonna run
    I'm gonna try
    I'm gonna take this love
    Right to ya
    All my heart, all the joy
    Oh baby, baby please

    When Love to Love you Baby by Donna Summer was released, it caused quite a stir. Some radio stations banned it, and others only played it late at night. It would be considered somewhat tame by today's standards. The full length version of the song is about 17 minutes long, which was unusual at the time.

    That's for sure. I love, love songs.
