Lots of great songs! Interestingly enough, the first thing I did when I started volunteering at the radio station was delete "Wonderful Tonight" so no one would ever ever ever be able to play it again.

That John Legend song ... wow ... just, wow.

Ahh yes - "Wonderful Tonight", not "Beautiful Tonight". Thanks for the correction - I actually googled it to double check the lyrics, and guess what - google did their automatic substitute thing, and I didn't notice it, so I thought that was right. I hate the way google does that.

So odd that the same woman inspired songs on such opposite ends of the spectrum for me (I love the song "Layla").

Good to see at least someone saw how demeaning those "Wonderful" lyrics are.

Yes, I do love "Maybe, I'm Amazed", infinitely better tune and lyrics, IMO.

Very simple tune, but beautiful vocals and very romantic lyrics - almost like a lullaby. You can play this song on Vday, whatever you two are doing, you can sing along (or lipsync if you are desparately out of tune) gazing into your spouse's eyes (that would be so corney that you are guaranteed to get a laugh... or tears..)

I found this Youtube vid which has an extra fun in it - John Legend just showed up at a restaurant, and started singing his song to unsuspected customers...
John Legend and Alicia Keys did a great rendition of "Let It Be" on that Beatles special.

Have you ever seen a headstone with these words
"If only I had spent more time at work" ... from "Busy Man" sung by Billy Ray Cyrus
