Here are 10 of my favourite love songs.
My Love Is Your Love (Forever) - The Isley Brothers
Flows superbly, gorgeous strings. 'Now girl, now that I found you, come closer girl, I wanna put my arms around you.
Only With You - The Beach Boys
Does it get any more beautiful than this?
'I wanna spend this life with you, only with you, yes it's true, all I wanna do, is spend my life with you.'
Don't Let Me Down - The Beatles
Lennon is so hopelessly in love that he says four words rather than three. Incredible middle-eight 'I'm in love for the first time, don't you know it's gonna last, it's a love that last forever, it's a love that has no past'.
I'm Thinking Of You - Sister Sledge
Disco heaven, this was sublime when Chic played it at Wickerman last summer.
'Without love, there's no reason to live, without you, what would I do with the love I give?'
'I'm thinking of you and the things you do to me, that make me love you, now I'm living in ecstasy'.
Mellow Doubt - Teenage Fanclub
I listened to this a lot before I proposed to Lynn.
I Love Every Little Thing About You - Stevie Wonder
Stevie has written some inspirational love songs. Has he ever sounded so head over heels?
Ladies and Gentleman We Are Floating In My Space - Spiritualized
From the truly exceptional album of the same name. J Spaceman is on a different level with this gorgeous lysergic lullaby.
Simple, heartfelt and soulful. This was our first wedding dance. Spector at his very best.
