Yes, I am a weirdo, but my vote would be the Smith's "There is a light that never goes out". A kind of love song with a very morbid sense of humor. I had a courthouse wedding, but this is the song I would have played if I didn't.

".....And if a double decker bus, crashes into us, to die by your side is such a heavenly way to die..." Perfection.

Probably my favorite female vocalist ever... incredible range and versatility... beautiful voice.

So many great songs. I just learned today that Dennis Wilson co-wrote 'You Are So Beautiful' with Billy Preston and Bruce Fisher. I always loved Joe Cocker's version of the song. Was a huge Beach Boys fan growing up. They were so talented.

Also agree with those voicing affection for Jim Croce's 'Time in a Bottle'. Such a loss.

Keep the hits coming folks. Great thread.

I knew of the above song when I was fairly young. Only in later years did I learn that it was a theme song of a 1955 movie entitled "Unchained". Meant to see if I can get this movie to watch, but keep forgetting.

Here's "Dance Me to the End of Love", written and sung by Leonard Cohen.

The reaction of the husband was priceless.

I am glad someone here also likes "Dance Me to the End of Love". I have enjoyed listening to it for a few years as a jazzy rendition by Madeleine Peyroux, and only discovered the original version recently. I have to say I like the original better, along with the instrumental accompaniment.

I should have posted this video of Leonard Cohen singing this in a live performance. But it's not too late. One can watch it again. In an interview, Cohen said the inspiration for this 1984 song was the Holocaust.

I certainly have to agree that The Carpenters belong on this list. Karen's voice was amazing, and I would vote for

We've Only Just Begun
Close to You
For All We Know

Another favorite of mine is I Could Not Ask For More by Sara Evans.

+1 One of my favorite love songs. Not only is her voice angelic, the background music is interesting too. It was a tragedy that she died so young and under such tragic circumstances. What a great talent.

Interesting. I've never heard The Carpenters version of "I Just Fall In Love Again" til this post. I'm more familiar with Anne Murray's version.

My favorite Carpenters loves songs are probably, "We've Only Just Begun" (written by Barry Manilow ) and "Top of the World".
