Romance? What?

So I like sad songs, particularly breakup songs. I’m not exactly sure why, except perhaps that I was a bitter single person, but I do. Even now that I’m happily married, something like 80% of my playlist contains breakup songs, and generally sad songs. For the record, the song Kyle takes the most exception to is “Beautifully” by Jay Brannan. Every time I’m listening to my playlist and that song in particular, Kyle comes in and complains about the many sad songs that I listen to.

This works most of the time, except that the other day I had the urge to listen to a lot of happy romantic songs (can you tell I’m addicted to a romance story right now?), but my playlist was sorely lacking. Sadcries!

So, loyal readers (this includes friends, family, strangers and blog stalkers), tell me: what are some of your favorite romantic songs? I’m looking to expand my playlist so that every time Kyle hears it he won’t complain of depressing songs and so that I can fill my desire for romantic music.
