The Beatles made all kinds of music, but this has to be their most romantic song.

One of the lesser-known songs from Billy Joel’s monster hit album Piano Man, this song has always touched my heart.

For slow dancing, this was as good as it got back in the 70’s – Earth Wind and Fire was sexy.

Elton John’s breakthrough hit was this timeless and beautiful song.

What would the 70s have been without John Denver and his unique, sweet way – especially this song of Rocky Mountain Love?

For the Rock and Rollers in all of us, the Led Zeppelin song that was every teenage boy’s concession to romance.

Of all of the Sinatra songs I love (and there are hundreds), this is the one in which I think he sounds his sexiest – and oh so romantic.

Stevie Wonder is the voice of sexy, but this song goes above and beyond even for him.

Carly Simon was the girl all the hot musicians wanted, and this song is Carly at her sexiest.

Neil Diamond’s “Play Me” is beyond romantic – it’s an entire love story in one song.

I’m not a huge Elvis fan, but to me this is the most romantic song ever sung.

What romantic songs do you love?
