I need some help here. What are some of your favorite songs for romancing your significant other?

I have no idea what your tastes run to so remember this is going in blind.

Avalon Roxy Music- Girls love this stuff and it's pretty timeless. If this album were room it'd be a very dark lounge with a comfy velvet couch of the deepest blue with purple throw pillows. A low, warm, fire of an album. The title track and the instrumental India, in particular, have the same rythm as that of certain carnal activities.

Anything by Edith Piaf. If you don't know her, she was the wartime chanteuse of France and was featured in Saving Private Ryan. Yes she sings in French, yes the recordings sound like they were made on stone tablets but she's just so damn sincere! The French are good at love and La Piaf is as good as a bottle of red and watching an August sunset from a bluff overlooking the ocean in a convertible (not that that's legal).

David Bowie. Heroes. There's a reason it was the fallen-in-love song of Moulin Rouge. Written in such a way as to remove female inhibitions. Thank you Mr. Bowie.

I have no idea how old you are but Johnny Mathis records were a big hit back when because he sang slow romantic songs with a silky voice. Hokey but widely considered by many to be the ultimate make-out music.

George Winston writes some wonderful piano pieces that have a melancholy air but quite pretty, if a bit vapid. Wonderful for lazing about on a Sunday afternoon watching the snow fall outside. Try the CD Winter. Just watch it. If this relationship gets serious she might start talking about George's cousin, Harry.

Mais Que Nada from Sergio Mendez and Brazil 66. Nothing says suave like Latin lounge music. Rat-pack era music to bed by. Smooth and catchy without leading to dancing. Think of thong bikinis and Impanema. The greatest hits album should be good.

Good luck and sorry if this isn't your style. If we have more to go on then we can tailor lists to your or your SO's tastes.
For beauty is only a step removed from a burning terror we barely sustain, and we worship it for the graceful sublimity with which it disdains to consume us. - Rainer Maria Rilke

Nolan,
For me, soul music is what I think of for romance. How about:

After the Love Has Lost Its Shine - Regina Belle
First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You - Roberta Flack
My Girl - The Temptations
Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing
Your Precious Love - Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
So Good, So Right
God Bless You - Brenda Russell

there are so many....

I appreciate the opinions. Most of my musical taste lies in more modern music. I think Sade is a great singer of soulful romantic songs. I also like tunes such as Led Zeppelin's "Thank You" and I think Garbage's "Milk" traffice are moving songs as well. These are the types I listen too... so I havepretty eclectic tastes. The following playlist is what I have worked on so far... some of the songs wouldn't be considered "romantic" but they affect me the way I want them to (does that make sense?) Gary Jules - Mad World America - Lonely People Radiohead - Bulletproof... I Wish I Was Garbage - Milk Semisonic - Secret Smile Led Zeppelin - Thank You Pearl Jam - Off He Goes The Cure Pictures Of You Alice In Chains - Nutshell Cyndi Lauper - True Colors Sade - No Ordinary Love Garbage - You Look So Fine

How 'bout Hello It's Me by the Isley Brothers. Ronald sings much better than Todd! This Love Is True by NRBQ is just beautiful and as harmonious as the Beatles' best. With These Hands by Les McCann is my romantic fav. That Film Noir album by Carly Simon might be good?

And I Love Her - The Beatles - Actually there are a few Beatles songs, but this one always has struck me as their best from one person to another love song. Long Song, Dannys Song and Watching the River Run - Loggins and Messina - All three were written primarily by Kenny Loggins but they are especially perfect wedding songs, but great little love songs too. Also while the Anne Murray versions are popular in my family, do not get her versions, they're just not as good as L&M. Something - The Beatles - Theres a reason it's their second most recorded song. I Get a Kick Out of You - Jamie Cullum - I know Frank did this song back in the day but there is just something about the Jamie Cullum version of this song that I like better, probably the more raw sound he gives it. The Scientist - Coldplay - If you use this song, show the music video as well. Not only is it my favorite song ever it's quite possibly one of the best music videos to ever exist. Faithfully - Journey - It's sappy, it's corny, it's Journey! Still a great little love song though. Baby, Now That I've Found You / When You Say Nothing At All - Alison Krauss and Union Station - Two cover songs that sound better than their original versions. The former is by The Foundation and the latter is by Keith Whitley. Alison's voice is the best female voice around (for the soft, sweet and amazing sound). That about does it for now. Good luck.

If I Keep My Heart Out Of Sight by James Taylor and Sunshine Girl by Livingston Taylor. The Inbetween The Sheets album by the Isley Brothers. Ain't It Warm In Here by Barefoot Jerry. Pick your fav's from Marvin Gaye's albums... Bill Withers' Ain't No Sunshine (when you're gone) or Eva Cassidy's lovely cover. Speaking Of Eva Cassidy...hmn...Fields Of Gold or Autumn Leaves.

Journey's "Open Arms" is my wife's favorite. If we ever do karayoke, she makes me sing it to her everytime. Luckily, I do a pretty good Steve Perry impression. Posted Image
