DW and I had this as our wedding song almost 38 years ago.

This is Kenny Vance from the Planatones who used to sing with Jay and the Americans, on the right is Johnny Maestro. Johnny passed last year and I knew him personally, what a great guy and he sounded as good at 70 as he did at 18. Johnny sang with the Crests back in the 50's (16 candles?) and spent the last 40+ years with the Brooklyn Bridge.

Enjoy W2R!

I keep forgetting about this thread. Greatest love song? Has to be Freddy Fender's.

I nominate this as true love at its finest #1st place finisher.

"Think whatever you want honey, ifn it works for you, I guarantee it'll work for me..."

Man, this thread can be addictive. I get on that there Youtube and The Texas Tornados are all the way. I love their sad ballads too - much like the slower Norteño music.

I think we also need a new thread- "Love Songs for Realists"

I nominate from my collection

I like ol' Patsy too, but not quite ironic enough to make my list.

Ha

Ha, I love that song by the Drifters, too. It's realistic, but sweet too in its own way.
