Most Romantic Songs

When my husband and I got married, we were really concerned about the music at the reception and we wanted a band that could play a variety of types of music so that there was something for everyone.

But of course we're talking weddings and romance here, so if you could only choose 3 songs that fell into the category of "most romantic" which ones would they be? (And yes, I know this is a tough one. Narrowing it down to 3 is really difficult).

I'll start (even though I know that five minutes after I post this I'm going to think of at least one song that should have made it to the list). I took a minute to consult with my heroine Regina on this, because after all, she's one very romantic woman. Here are our choices:

1. I've Had the Time of My Life, theme song from Dirty Dancing by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes

2. When a Man Loves a Woman (either Percy Sledge or Michael Bolton version)

3. (And just to hit something more contemporary) You're Beautiful by James Blunt

Okay, your turn. What 3 songs would you choose?

I love these:

So She Dances, Josh Groban (beautiful)

She, Elvis Costello

I'll Be Waiting, Lenny Kravitz

I have dozens of others...I adore romantic songs. We danced to Lady, by Kenny Rogers, at our wedding, and Can I Have This Dance For the REst of My Life by Anne Murray. :-)))

Oh, I saw The Pretenders at a concert in Australia, just before we left, and they are wonderful - and I'll Stand By You has to be one of my all-time favourite songs. thanks for the reminder, Melissa!
