It was a mistake, a gaffe, an error, plummeting in on Merriam that day. When she looked at me with those big brown organs of vision, I felt myself omit a cardio pulsation.

And since it's that time of the year, ABC News has a list of Worst Love Songs of All Time that you would do well to avoid. Which makes me realise that perhaps we do need another thread inviting people to post their favourite love songs.
Rolling Stone has a list of The 20 Best Angry Love Songs Ever that you would do well to avoid as well.
But if it is the familiar you are looking for, well, here's a hurriedly compiled playlist of Beatles love songs.
Also, while you won't go wrong with stuff like Van Morrison playing Have I told you lately? or Ain't no sunshine when You are gone, it might not be a good idea to go hunting for Emosanal Atyachar. No, not even the non-X-rated version.
And please do share your playlist too. It needn't even be links to songs -- just a list of, say, 10 favourites would do. Language no bar.
