Most romantic song


The NZA

Recommended Posts

No, i dont mean "get you in the mood" song so lets not have too much Jodeci, Vandross, Barry White etc here; i mean, if youre inclined to be romantic, what do ya find to be the most romantic song?

 

While this aint limited to R&B, that's the genre that comes to mind for me, i guess.  In rap, id say Method Man & Mary J's "All that I need", but this topic came about by listenin to Craig David "Rendezvous" &  Boyz II Men "Pass You By".  

Even so, im goin with an old one (Spiffy'll back me here if he ever reads this)... PM Dawn, "Die without you". Maybe its the piano, i dunno.  :heart: :ill:

What bout the rest of ya?

Hmm, hard to say, good thread idea...

 

One of my favorites has always been "Punchdrunk Lovesick Singalong" By radiohead...  you sort of have to hear it to appreciate it, but the lyrics are great, I think.

 

"I wrapped you inside my coat

When they came to firebomb the house

I didn't feel pain, 'cause no-one can touch me

Now that I'm held in your spell

 

A beautiful girl

A beautiful girl

Can turn your world into dust

 

Sell me a car that goes

Sell me a house that stands

I never cared before, I never cared before

I never cared before, before, before, before

 

A beautiful girl

A beautiful girl

Can turn your world into dust

 

I stood in front of her face

When the first bullet was shot..."

 

More as I think about em

How about the 50s classic "If You Wanna Be Happy" by Jimmy Soul?

 

     If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life

     Never make a pretty woman your wife

     So from my personal point of view

     Get an ugly girl to marry you

 

     If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life

     Never make a pretty woman your wife

     So from my personal point of view

     Get an ugly girl to marry you

 

     A pretty woman makes her husband look small

     And very often causes his downfall

     As soon as he marries her then she starts

     To do the things that will break his heart

 

     But if you make an ugly woman your wife

     you'll be happy for the rest of your life

     An ugly woman cooks meals on time

     And she'll always give you peace of mind

 

     If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life

     Never make a pretty woman your wife

     So from my personal point of view

     Get an ugly girl to marry you

 

     Don't let your friends say you have no taste

     Go ahead and marry anyway

     Though her face is ugly, her eyes don't match

     Take it from me, she's a better catch

 

     If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life

     Never make a pretty woman your wife

     So from my personal point of view

     Get an ugly girl to marry you

 

     Say man!

     Hey baby!

     I saw your wife the other day!

     Yeah?

     Yeah, an' she's ug-leeee!

     Yeah, she's ugly, but she sure can cook, baby!

     Yeah, alright!

 

     If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life

     Never make a pretty woman your wife

     So from my personal point of view

     Get an ugly girl to marry you

 

     If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life

     Never make a pretty woman your wife

     So from my personal point of view

     Get an ugly girl to marry you

 

     If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life

     Never make a pretty woman your wife

     So from my personal point of view

     If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life

     Never make a pretty woman your wife

     So from my personal point of view

     Get an ugly girl to marry you

 

Side note: It is bad luck to sing this song at weddings. The bribes tend not to like it and every wedding I've attended where this song was sung led to a divorce eventually.

 

But seriously, as far as straight up romantic songs, I've have to say something my Van Morrison. He did those kinds of songs pretty well IMO.

i'm a sucka for the donna's cover of "keep on loving you"

 

"you should have seen by the look in my eyes baby..there was something missing..you should have known by the tone in my voice baby, but you didn't listen.. you lay dead..but you never bled, instead you lay strewn in the grass all caught up in kisses..and i know all about those girls, still i don't remember..cause it was us baby way before them..and we're still together.. and i meant, every word i said, when i said that i love you i meant, that i'd love you forever..and i'm gonna keep on loving you, cause it's the only thing i wanna do..i don't wanna sleep, i just wanna keep on loving you"

I'm gonna have to go with The Pogues again. Rainy night in Soho. The original version from Poguetry in Motion, not the one with all the horns on the best of album.

 

"I've been lovin you a long time

Count all the years down all the days

And I've cried for all your troubles

Smiled at your funny little ways.

 

We watched our friends grow up together

And we saw them as they fell

Some of them fell into heaven

Some of them fell into hell

 

Now the song is nearly over

We may never find out what it means

But there's a light I hold before me

And you're the measure of my dreams"

:fuming::fuming::bravo::angel::pimp:

"the Glory of love"

 

tonight it's very clear as we're both lying

here there's so many things i wanna say

i will always love you i will never leave you alone

sometimes i just forget, say things i might regret

it breaks my heart to see you crying

i don't want to lose you i could never make it alone

 

(refrão)

cause i am the man who will fight for your honor

i'll be the hero that you're dreaming of

gonna live forever knowing together

that we did it all for the glory of love

 

you keep me standing tall you help me through it all

i'm always strong when you're beside me

i have always needed you i could never make it alone

 

(refrão)

 

it's like a knight in shining armor from a long time ago

just in time i'll save the day take you to my castle far away...

(refrão)

A few more:

 

The Beatles: "In My Life"

The Cowboy Junkies: "Misguided Angel"

Bob Dylan: "Abandoned Love"

 

The Cowboy Junkies one is great

 

"I said Mama, he's crazy and he scares me

But I want him by my side

He's wild and he's bad

And sometimes just plain mad

But I need him to keep me satisfied

 

Said Papa don't cry

Cause it's all right

And I see you in some of his ways

Though he might not give me

The life that you wanted

I'll love him the rest of my days

 

Misguided angel hanging over me

Heart like a Gabriel

Pure and white as I can see

Soul like a Lucifer

Black coal like a piece of ash

Misguided angel love you to death

 

I said brother you speak to me of passion

And you told me not to settle for nothing less

Well it's in the way he walks

It's in the way he talks

His smile

His anger

And his kisses..."

Hmmm, Jax called a great one with Jackie Wilson Said and Tu called a better one with Rainy night in Soho but I'm going for Sisqo's Thong song...okay maybe this once I won't....So ladies and gentlemen, the first non-Sisqo, non-Saved by the Bell 2T post...

 

Okay, so this first one, I think is just a sweet song as it just says no matter what we have we have us and then maybe something extra.

 

Danny's Song

People smile and tell me I'm the lucky one

We've just begun, I think I'm gonna have a son

He will be like you and me, free as a dove

Conceived in love, the sun is gonna shine above

 

Even though we ain't got money

I'm so in love with ya honey

Everything will bring a chain of love

In the mornin' when I rise

Bring a tear of joy to my eyes

And tell me everything's gonna be all right

 

Love a girl who holds the world in a paper cup

Drink it up, love her and she'll bring you luck

If ya find she helps your mind, better take her home

Oh dontcha live alone, try to earn what lovers own

 

Even though we ain't got money

I'm so in love with ya honey

Everything will bring a chain of love

In the mornin' when I rise

Bring a tear of joy to my eyes

And tell me everything's gonna be all right

 

Even though we ain't got money

I'm so in love with ya honey

Everything will bring a chain of love

In the mornin' when I rise

Bring a tear of joy to my eyes

And tell me everything's gonna be all right

 

Even though we ain't got money

I'm so in love with ya honey

Everything will bring a chain of love

In the mornin' when I rise

Bring a tear of joy to my eyes

And tell me everything's gonna be all right

 

An age old classic...

 

Brown Eyed Girl

Hey where did we go,

Days when the rains came

Down in the hollow,

Playin' a new game,

Laughing and a running hey, hey

Skipping and a jumping

In the misty morning fog with

Our hearts a thumpin' and you

My brown eyed girl,

You my brown eyed girl.

 

Whatever happened

To Tuesday and so slow

Going down the old mind

With a transistor radio

Standing in the sunlight laughing,

Hiding behind a rainbow's wall,

Slipping and sliding

All along the water fall, with you

My brown eyed girl,

You my brown eyed girl.

 

So hard to find my way,

Now that I'm all on my own.

I saw you just the other day,

My how you have grown,

Cast my memory back there, Lord

Sometime I'm overcome thinking 'bout

Making love in the green grass

Behind the stadium with you

My brown eyed girl

You my brown eyed girl

 

The girl I fell hardest in love with sang me this song so it makes the grade...

 

Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings

Of the bluebird as she sings.

The six o'clock alarm would never ring.

But it rings and I rise,

Wipe the sleep out of my eyes.

My shavin' razor's cold and it stings.

 

Cheer up, Sleepy Jean.

Oh, what can it mean.

To a daydream believer

And a homecoming queen.

 

You once thought of me

As a white knight on a steed.

Now you know how happy I can be.

Oh, and our good times start and end

Without dollar one to spend.

But how much, baby, do we really need.

 

Cheer up, Sleepy Jean.

Oh, what can it mean.

To a daydream believer

And a homecoming queen.

Cheer up, Sleepy Jean.

Oh, what can it mean.

To a daydream believer

And a homecoming queen.

 

Cheer up, Sleepy Jean.

Oh, what can it mean.

To a daydream believer

And a homecoming queen.

 

 

And the final choice is a new'n but a gudd'n...

 

Utsukushii Shibuya

 

I've been thrown the gaijin glare for so long

by now I take the scorn in stride

got no time for pride that only serves to divide

got no time for miscommunication

I've been trying to set this straight for so long

trying to hammer out what's bent

you trust in my intent

you must be heaven sent

and I've been trying to let you know that i love you so

 

I've been trying to find a girl for so long

that tears have often filled my eyes

under azure skies as we said our last goodbyes

I was trying to let you know that I love you so

 

I love you so

you'll never know

but I love you so

Damn...can't believe I forgot this one...

 

Haunted

By Shane MacGowan

 

Do you remember that sunny day

Somewhere in London

In the middle of nowhere

Didn't have nothing to do that day

Didn't want to do nothing anyway

 

You got a way of walking

You got a way of talking

And there's something about you

And now I know I never ever

Want to be without you

 

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

of your precious love

of your precious love

 

The first time I saw you

Standing in the street

You were so cool you could have

Put out Vietnam

All the girls say "Whats he like?"

I said "He's kind of shy

But that's the kind of girl I am,

He's my kind of guy"

 

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

of your precious love

of your precious love

 

I'll build my world around you

I'll bless the day that I found you

I'll stay beside you and I'll never leave

Or tell you all those lies you'd never believe

Uh huh huh

 

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

of your precious love

of your precious love

 

You got a way of walking

You got a way of talking

And there's something about you

That's the kind of girl I am,

He's my kind of guy

And now I know I never ever

Want to be without you

 

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

I want to be haunted by the ghost

And now I know I never ever

Want to be without you

My picks are usually cheesy, but hey, love is.

 

Hands Down

Dashboard Confessional

 

Breathe in for luck, breathe in so deep

This air is blessed you share with me

This night is wild, so calm and dull

These hearts they race from self control

Your legs are smooth as they graze mine

We're doing fine

We're doing nothing at all

 

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me

So won't you kill me

So I die happy

My heart is yours to fill or burst

To break or bury

Or wear as jewelry

Whichever you prefer

 

The words are hushed, let's not get busted

Just lay entwined here, undiscovered

Safe from the earth and all the stupid questions

"Hey did you get some?" Man, that is so dumb

Stay quiet, stay near, stay close, they can't hear

So we can get some

 

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me

So won't you kill me

So I die happy

My heart is yours to fill or burst

To break or bury

Or wear as jewelry

Whichever you prefer

 

Hands down

This is the best day that I can ever remember

I'll always remember the sound

Of the stereo, the dim of soft lights

And the scent of your hair that you twirled in your fingers,

And the time on the clock when we realized it's so late

And the walk that we shared together

The street was wet and the gate was locked

So I jumped it and let you in

And we stood at your day with your hands on my waist

And you kissed me like you meant it

And I knew that you meant it, that you meant it, that you meant it

And I knew that you meant it, that you meant it.

 

 

Painted on My Heart

The Cult

 

I thought you'd be out of my mind

And I'd finally found a way to learn to live without you

I thought it was just a matter of time

'Til I had a hundred reasons not to think about you

But it's just not so

And after all this time

I still can't let go

 

I've still got your face

Painted on my heart

Scrawled upon my soul

Etched upon my memory, baby

And I've got your kiss still

Burning on my lips

The touch of my fingertips

Is love so deep inside of me, baby

 

I've tried everything that I can

To get my heart to forget you

But it just can't seem to

I guess it's just no use

In every part of me

There's still a part of you

 

I've still got your face

Painted on my heart

Scrawled upon my soul

Etched upon my memory, baby

And I've got your kiss still

Burning on my lips

The touch of my fingertips

Is love so deep inside of me, baby

 

Something in your eyes keeps haunting me

I'm trying to escape you and I know there ain't no way to

To chase you from my mind

 

I've still got your face

Painted on my heart

Scrawled upon my soul

Etched upon my memory, baby

And I've got your kiss still

Burning on my lips

The touch of my fingertips

Is love so deep inside of me, baby

 

 

If You're Not the One

Daniel Beddingfield

 

If you're not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?

If you're not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?

If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call?

If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all?

I never know what the future brings, but I know you're here with me now

We'll make it through and I hope that you are the one I share my life with

 

I don't wanna run away but I can't take it, I don't understand

If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?

Is there anyway that I can stay in your arms?

 

If I don't need you then why am I crying on my bed?

If I don't need you then why does your name resound in my head?

If you're not for me then why does this distance maim my life?

If you're not for me then why do I dream of you as my wife?

I don't know why you're so far away but I know that this much is true

We'll make it through and I hope you are the one I share my life with

And wish that you could be the one I die with

And I pray you'll be the one I build my home with

 

I don't wanna run away but I can't take it, I don't understand

If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?

Is there anyway that I can stay in your arms?

 

Cause I miss you, body and soul, so strong that it takes my breath away

And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today

Cause I love you, whether it's wrong or right

And though I can't be with you tonight

You know my heart is by your side

 

I don't wanna run away but I can't take it, I don't understand

If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?

Is there anyway that I can stay in your arms?

And dealing with love in a humorous way. Ok, not even love, just... Alright I just wanted to put the lyrics, ok?

 

HermAphrodite

Stephen Lynch

 

She's part girl, she's part boy

She's got parts everyone can enjoy

She's got more, she's got less

She's got her manhood tucked in her dress, yeah

Is she a mister or is she a miss?

Does she stand up when she's taking a piss?

She's my little girl, yeah, she's my little guy

When I try to please her I get poked in the eye.

 

She wears lace and she wears flannel

She watches football and the Lifetime channel

What's that bulge under her nightie?

It must be HermAphrodite

 

Some things are white, some things are black

Some girls wear makeup, mine shaves her back

She's still beautiful, she's still fine

It's too bad her package is bigger than mine

 

She can't help her imperfections

She gets jock itch from her yeast infection

Who stole all my tightie whiteys?

It must be HermAphrodite

Yeeeeeeeeeea-ea-ea-ea-ea-yeah, HermAphrodite

Shameless (always liked the lyrics)

Billy Joel

 

Well I'm shameless when it comes to loving you

I'd do anything you want me to

I'd do anything at all

 

And I'm standing here for all the world to see

There ain't that much left of me

That has very far to fall

 

You know I'm not a man who has ever been

Insecure about the world I've been living in

I don't break easy, I have my pride

But if you need to be satisfied

 

I'm shameless, baby I don't have a prayer

Anytime I see you standing there

I go down upon my knees

 

And I'm changing, I swore I'd never compromise

But you convinced me otherwise

I'll do anything you please

 

You see in all my life I've never found

What I couldn't resist, what I couldn't turn down

I could walk away from anyone I ever knew

But I can't walk away from you

 

I have never let anything have this much control over me

Cause I worked too hard to call my life my own

Yes I made myself a world and it worked so perfectly

But it's your world now, I can't refuse

I never had so much to lose

I'm shameless...shameless

 

You know it should be easy for a man who's strong

To say he's sorry or admit when he's wrong

I've never lost anything I ever missed

But I've never been in love like this...

 

It's out of my hands

 

I'm shameless, I don't have the power now

But I don't want it anyhow

So I've got to let it go

 

I'm shameless, shameless as a man can be

You can make a total fool of me

I just wanted you to know

 

I am shameless

Shameless

Shameless...

 

 

Your Song (classic)

Elton John

 

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside

I'm not one of those who can easily hide

I don't have much money but boy if I did

I'd buy a big house where we both could live

 

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no

Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show

I know it's not much but it's the best I can do

My gift is my song and this one's for you

 

And you can tell everybody this is your song

It may be quite simple but now that it's done

I hope you don't mind

I hope you don't mind that I put down in words

How wonderful life is while you're in the world

 

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss

Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross

But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song

It's for people like you that keep it turned on

 

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do

You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue

Anyway the thing is what I really mean

Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

 

 

The Way You Look Tonight

Elton John

 

There was a time

I was everything and nothing all in one

When you found me

I was feeling like a cloud across the sun

 

I need to tell you

How you light up every second of the day

But in the moonlight

You just shine like a beacon on the bay

 

And I can't explain

But it's something about the way you look tonight

Takes my breath away

It's that feeling I get about you, deep inside

And I can't describe

But it's something about the way you look tonight

Takes my breath away

The way you look tonight

 

With your smile

You pull the deepest secrets from my heart

In all honesty

I'm speechless and I don't know where to start

 

And I can't explain

But it's something about the way you look tonight

Takes my breath away

It's that feeling I get about you, deep inside

And I can't describe

But it's something about the way you look tonight

Takes my breath away

The way you look tonight

 

And I can't explain

But it's something about the way you look tonight

Takes my breath away

It's that feeling I get about you, deep inside

And I can't describe

But it's something about the way you look tonight

Takes my breath away

The way you look tonight
