Bryan Adams - (Everything I Do) I Do It for You
Bon Jovi Bed Of Roses
The Beatles - She Loves You

First two came from my adolescent years when I though I was in love. The last one always reminds me of the girl I almost married, but thank god I didn’t. Deep down inside I’ll always love her even though we are so far removed from each other now.

Dome,
If possible, I'd like to change one of my selections, removing Little Wing by Jimi Hendrix and adding I Walk the Line, by Johnny Cash. If it's too late to do so, that's fine. It's just that I was listening to some Cash and said to myself, "Dang, that's some fine love song. It should be in that tournament that Dome is running."

Something-The Beatles
Love Song-The Cure
Close To You -The Carpenters

Wow, having The Carpenters, and The Cure on the same list is almost as bizzare as Scott having NIN, and Air Supply on his.
