    Not sure my list would look much like this, though I'm not really into love songs these days

    But, alas, it is Valentine's weekend

    The 50 best love songs for Valentine's Day

    No "Silly Love Songs" from Paul McCartney?
    No "Love Is The Drug" from Roxy Music?
    No "Slave To Love" from Bryan Ferry?
    No "My Love" from Paul McCartney?
    No Pina Colada song?
    No "Hey There Delilah" from Plain White Ts?
    No "Wonderful Tonight" from Clapton?
    No "Just The Way You Are" by Billy Joel?
    Nothing from Roxy Music's album Avalon, maybe the most romantic rock album of all time?
    That's just after a little bit of thought. I could go on and on.
    GTFO, Time Out.

    Applaud the first one. The underlying creepiness of the second is surpassed only by Benny Mardones' "Into The Night." ;)

    Gets a little schmaltzy toward the end, but if that list can house the Smiths and Father John Misty...:)

    I love The Cure. I've been a big fan since I was a freshman or sophomore in high school.
    But 'Friday I'm in Love' is awful.

    Several years ago, I was in line to pay for some things after getting gas at a WaWa in Waldorf, Md. Hey There Delilah came up on the in-house sound system.

    There was a cashier and three customers: young black guy (cashier), old white guy (me), young white woman who was extremely cute and wearing quite the outfit and an older black woman. We all smiled when the song came on and at the first chorus, we put our arms around each other, swayed and sang. Stayed and did it again the next chorus.

    If I had to rank my life in 2-3 minute chunks, that would be in the top 5.

    Song ended, we all paid up and left. Left smiling. Except for the cashier. He stayed smiling.

    OK, if I'd had that Delilah experience, I wouldn't be so tough on it.

    Only one token Al Green song? No Marvin Gaye or Barry White? Please.
