Top 10 Romantic Songs - Best Songs about Love and Romance

Are you trying to compile a list of the top 10 romantic songs ever?

Here are some tips and ideas regarding some of the best songs for moving the soul and representing love and romance.

Whoever has the job of selecting the top ten romantic songs has a tough job to say the least. Even the polls find it hard, hence the many categories the top songs can be found listed under - country, pop, contemporary, and all time best.

Nowadays, polls are conducted according to the number of times the song is requested, the record is purchased, etc. They are the songs that literally move us - they make us long to be the one sung about, or take us back to a place in the past we do not want to forget.

Of the top 10 romantic songs throughout the last fifty years, one of the most popular is "I Will Always Love You", written by country singer Dolly Parton and sung by Whitney Houston. Two genres were bridged to create this epic tune. Or think of songs like "Amazed" by Lonestar (again country), or "True Companion" by Marc Cohn, both songs used at weddings because of the meaning behind their dynamic lyrics.

Several all time favorites from the past rank high on the list of top 10 romantic songs because of the strong connections they generate within us. "At Last", by Etta James (also a wedding favorite), "When A Man Loves A Woman" by Percy Sledge (try a slow dance with your girl to this one as you hold her close), "Unchained Melody" or "Ebb Tide" by the Righteous Brothers, and "Love Me Tender" by Elvis Presley all say it so romantically - and with such heartfelt feeling in this day and age as they did when they were first recorded.

Another great example of one of the top 10 romantic songs is country singer Willie Nelson with "You Were Always on My Mind". Whether this recording emanates romance, the words communicate sensitivity as well as honest feelings that have stirred people's emotions since it first came out.

From the latter part of the twentieth century came these classics: "All I Want is You" by U2 (stirring and sexy), "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion (compelling), "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton (totally intense), as well as the heart wrenching words of Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart." These songs must surely be strong contenders to be among the top 10 romantic songs ever, too.

Some people relate romantic songs to their first slow dance, their first true love, or even their first date. Romantic memories and moments are almost always associated with music - it is a universal thing among the old as well as young lovers. Love is the most powerful emotion, and music has long been known to move the soul of man - including song writers from every walk of life.

Consider rocker Joe Cocker with his "You Are so Beautiful" or Faith Hill's "Breathe", "You Light up My Life" by Debbie Boone or Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" - all mutually dynamic, all from the four corners of the music scene, all expressing feelings in words we wish we had thought of first. Are these songs in your list of top 10 romantic songs ever?

Women and men alike have belted out poetic words that have stirred people's most inner feelings. Elvis said it when he sang "Can't Help Falling in Love", Elton John expressed it with his "Can You Feel the Love Tonight", and Sticks with their version of "Lady".

Who can forget Roberta Flack's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", Bryan Adams' "Everything I Do I Do For You", Bette Midler's "Wind Beneath my Wings", "Something" as well as "My Love" by The Beatles, or something so simple as Sonny and Cher singing their classic "I Got You Babe"? These we will always hold dear.

So, what's your take on the top 10 romantic songs ever?
