We’ve asked various writers and friends of TCD to share a few of their favorite love songs with us. And wouldn’t you know it, they did … Some are gushy sweet, others are more sobering … but there’s something about each that puts a twinkle in your eye, especially around Valentine’s Day. Grab your partner, cuddle up and enjoy. Each day, leading up to the Love Holiday, we’ll share the songs sure to make you swoon. Here’s a few to get us started:

TCD Managing Editor Lisa Townsel‘s Picks:


Michael Buble’s It’s Time.

“Quando, quando, quando” — Michael Bublé and Nelly Furtado: The thick, intoxicating word play here is infectious. Anyone who has ever loved knows how it feels to be this head over heels for someone.

“Hold Me” — Thomas Whitfield: I am not sure that this is supposed to be a love song, but it is, especially for my husband and me, who both respect practically everything that this man produced. It’s striking, refined and … just us!

“Don’t Know Much” — Aaron Neville and Linda Ronstadt: Okay, the English is a little flat, and my husband can’t stand the sound of  this guy’s voice, but I love Neville and Ronstadt’s voices together and really feel a euphoric love whenever I hear this. Love, pure and simple.

B93.3’s CV and Jane: “Listen to Jane and CV mornings from 5:30 to 10 on B93.3”

Jane‘s Pick: (Brace yourself … she is not a fan of the ballads)…..
“Goodbye Earl” — the Dixie Chicks: Hey, it’s a relationship song, right???

CV: “Your Song” — Elton John: Years ago, a boy asked that I play it on my show TO me, From him. Awwww.

CV: “Everytime I Think Of You” — Babys: I’ve loved it ever since I heard it for the first time off my K-Tel Power Explosion album. (Don’t remember it? Hear more below.)

    John Waite proposed to me on Michael’s behalf. It was very romantic. 🙂

    That is his favorite story to tell. I’m not sure if it’s because you said yes or because John did! 🙂
