    I am looking for some romantic songs for my second year dating anniversary with my girlfriend. I probably will choose “If You Go Away” on your list. Because I can show to my girlfriend that how much I would miss her if she left.

    I will also choose “You Light Up My Life”. Because she can know that how happy I am when I date her.

      Hi Anthony! Thanks for commenting here!

      It is also nice for you to choose some songs that remind the two of you of some special times you have spent together. Like a concert you have seen together perhaps?

      Happy Anniversary!

    I’ve been searching for good songs to listen to, to relax a little after a busy day at work (and the meetings!).

    I’m not a big fan of romance but there classics are nostalgic and that’s pretty nice. In fact, I really enjoyed your little playlist. Thanks for sharing!

    Would love to see you update this with more awesome songs.

    You have some great songs listed here, and I realize how much time has gone by when I think how I was around when a lot of these songs hit the charts.

    For me, these songs also bring back a lot of past memories from a previous time just reading the titles themselves.

    These songs are definitely worth having, and I’ll need to collect some of them.

    What a nice website you have, a very informative and lots of topics not only about couples but other things as well like music, exercise and even about sex. I enjoy reading mostly your article about Kegel Exercise for men. I’m in late forty, so I better be prepared right? I probably would start doing Kegel. Well anyway, keep up the good work people are looking for some information that really make sense and I think your website’s contents are one of them. God Bless.
