So this is a list of MY OWN OPINIONS. I know a lot of people are not going to agree 100% with what I've compiled and I know there are going to be a lot of negative comments but as I said, this is solely based on my opinions and I would love to hear feedback whether good or bad...just don't bash me. I have reasons as to why I picked each one. And since I chose to do love songs they're all slow. Most of them were based on how good the lyrics were. Some songs have explainations as to WHY they're on here, some don't. I started from the last and worked my way down to what I believe to be number 1. I know there might be some classics that I forgot about but off the top of my head, I think I did pretty good. I could have went up to 200 but I knew nobody would read it.

Great Keith Sweat inclusions.

Great selection...but what about "Me and You" by Tony! Toni! Toné!

Hmmmm No Otis Redding? That guy wrote and recorded some of the most moving R&B love songs ever made. If you don't believe me check out "I've Been Loving You Too Long" on youtube.

Love is an frustrating sentiment. Really like may mean different things to different people. It may are available for a girlfriend, mom, buddies, animals or characteristics.we have some special class for this special gift form God qoutz.com/i-love-you-quotes i love you quotes
