A Whole Lotta Love- a few of my favorite Mushy Gushy Jams for Valentines Day

In honor of Valentine's day- here are a few sweet songs through the decades.
At least one is about unrequited love.

Oh How Happy
Shades of Blue 1966


The Book Of Love
Magnetic Fields 1999


Catch the Wind
Donovan 1965


I Want You
Tom Waits 1971


Never Let Go
Tom Waits 2006


Harvest Moon
Neil Young 1992


Can't help falling in love
Elvis Presley
Video version with the Eels


Crazy Love
Van Morrison 1970


Mark Knopfler
All that Matters


Alexi Murdoch
Ally of My Days 2006



Bob Dylan
To Make you feel my Love
No decent video for this one

and
You're the One
Shane McGowan and Maire Brennan
This is an old school cheesy duet. From the movie Circle of Friends (I think as the credits roll.) I once worked a wedding where this was the couple's song- and it was one of the sweetest things I've ever seen.
