There are love songs. Those goofy, sappy songs you hear get played on the radio late at night as often as not, accompanied by "listener phone requests". We have that here in LA
every night on KOST 103.5 "Love Songs On The Coast (KOST)". Or at least we did up until a couple of years ago. I haven't listened to KOST probably since early 2002 when we were stuck with it at work. How that Karen Sharp hasn't slit her wrists yet is beyond me. The same songs get regurgitated over and over and over (at least they did the few times I actually listened to it....)
These are a dime a dozen. And almost all of them suck. Songs like "Because Of You" by 98º.
Or "You're The Inspiration" by Chicago.
It's a good song, but definitely not a one size fits all dedication that it's been bastardized into.
Then there's that one, I don't even know who sings it, but it goes something like "Whatever I said/whatever I did/I didn't mean it/I just want you back for good."
Somebody drive in the needle.
Then there are
slow dance songs. You know the ones you slow dance to, whether it's at the prom or at a night club, or at the end of a romantic evening with your loved one. These are the timeless classics that evoke that old school feeling of being in love (love not being defined just as "how quick can I get into her pants").
So what do you think are the best "slow dance" songs of all time?
Here are my 5 picks, in no particular order.
1. "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton
2. "Knights In White Satin" by The Moody Blues
3. "If You Leave Me Now" by Chicago
4. "When I'm With You" by Sheriff
5. "We've Got Tonight" by Bob Seger
