It’s time, once again, for Small talk Six! On Saturdays presented by MomDot.com. Today’s topic is “6 love songs that make you melt”. You can answer this with a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences. 6 paragraphs, 6 photos, 6 videos, etc…

Ahhh, love. And love songs. I grew up in the era of  love song central. It was the 80’s. The artists from that decade are responsible for 99% of every “soft rock” or “love songs” radio station’s play list {KOST 103.9, anyone?}. Some of the songs I am sick to death of because I generally worked in places whose “muzak” station was KOST. It was annoying as hell. If I hear Anita Baker’s “Sweet Love”, Gloria Estefan’s “Anything For You” or Whitney Houston’s rendition of “I Will Always Love You” one more time, I think I will poke out my eardrums with a knitting needle!!

My list, therefore, will not be exactly conventional.

As if you would expect anything less from moi?!

1) {I’ll Stop The World And} Melt With You by Modern English, from the Valley Girl Soundtrack {one of Nicolas Cage’s first starring roles}. Ahh, yes, the 80’s…oh I melted to this song…and then nearly tossed my cookies when I started hearing it on commercials for Burger King and a GMC car commercial.

Note to advertisers: STOP IT. Stop it now. Really, I’m completely serious. Stop raping my teenage years and using awesome songs with even better memories attached to them to hawk your stupid products. Or at least have the cahones to use the original version of the song and not some Frankensteined piece of shit cover, OK?

2) Groovy Kind Of Love by Phil Collins {mine and my Husband’s “first” song}

3) Unchained Melody by The Righteous Brothers {Mine and my Husband’s song}

4) Story Book Love by Willie DeVille from the Princess Bride Soundtrack {My Husband and I lit our Unity Candle to this song at our wedding}. I couldn’t find the soundtrack version of this song. It’s sounds awesome with the orchestra behind the vocal.

5) In My Life by The Beatles

6) Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, from the Once Soundtrack
