Greatest Love Song Ever?

Dentist husband and I are both talkers.  And, because we are both talkers, we talk about EVERYTHING.  And, often they are very heated discussions about things that aren't important at all.  Recently, a friend overhead us talking, thought we were arguing, only to discover we were "discussing" something very trivial.

The other night, the topic was the greatest love song of all time.  We, as a couple, don't officially have an "our song" and that led us to consider great love songs.

Here is what we came up with.  We couldn't put it in any particular order so we have just decided that these songs are all, "our song."  But, if we were ever on The Newlywed Game, we agreed "Fields of Gold" by Sting would be our answer, since that song came out closest to when we were dating.  (I was actually in Israel doing a study abroad when it came out and he was still on his Mormon mission in Minnesota.)  You can click on any of the songs to go to a Youtube link to hear the songs.  Feel free to comment and add your own songs.

1.  Fields of Gold, Sting

2.  The Book of Love, Peter Gabriel  (This is a cover, the original band to sing it was The Magnetic Fields but Peter Gabriel does it so much better in both Dentist Huband's and my opinion)

3.  In Your Eyes, Peter Gabriel  

4.  The Luckiest, Ben Folds 

5.  You and Me, Dave Matthews Band (The video is really worth watching.  Very cool.  Well done whoever came up with this video idea.)

6.  Walking After You, Foo Fighters

None of those songs were played on the radio when we were dating.  The songs that come to mind when we were dating are below.  All good songs but for various reasons, didn't make our "cut".

 I Go Blind, Hootie and the Blow Fish

Champaign Supernova, Oasis

Banditos by The Refreshments

Big Me, Foo Fighters  (Great video)

Oh and for those of you who are reading this and know what a huge fan my husband is of the band Rush, none of their songs made it because I am not a huge fan of the band Rush.  He can enjoy them as much as he wants (and he does) but with the exception of a few songs, I have to let him enjoy them on his own time.
