NO BEATLES SONGS?! This list is a joke.

Hmm... Hallelujah (the original) is actually by Leonard Cohen, and it's about the Bible... but I guess if that's what gets you in the mood? I'm also so, so happy to see Falling Slowly on here :)

Ack!, of course, "Gold Only Knows" is by the Beach Boys. Changed! Thanks for pointing out.

^what Spacekatdude said! :D Plus it's songs about love, not "love songs". As for the Cardigans, I would have said it's women in their 20s (I love that band but most of my friends discovered them when they were teenagers obsessed with DiCaprio and watching Romeo+Juliet way too many times).

Not sure I agree with Anonymous that "One" is a "break-up" song. Seems more like a "saving the relationship because we've been through a lot together" song. If you look at the wikipedia entry on it, it'll tell you that the song was written at a crucial moment in recording "Achtung Baby" when the band was on the verge of breaking up, but pulled it together after Bono wrote this. Also, would it embarrassing to admit that "Lovefool" and "One" were the only songs after 1980 that I knew?

You don't have to be 30 to like Lady Gaga either! :( Hallelujah is a lovely song, but it is the worst when your at the pub, half drunk and you've just had a horror shift at work.

Oh god, I put that Stars song on a mixed CD I made and gave it to a guy who broke my heart. Now I just cringe when I even it in print. Like right now. On a better note ... I first heard the "Happy together" Turtles song in a Golden Grahams commercial when I was *really* young and liked it :)

Isn't #3 a Beach Boys song? If so, that's my #1.

This list must have been made by women in their 30s. The Cardigans... really? (Lets not even discuss Lady Gaga...) Oh well, my list would have probably been half Beatles songs anyway, so I can't complain.
