    Relationship songs you like & why

    BTW I'm using links rather than embedded videos so if you play a video it is easier to find it and stop it. (also some VEVO embedded videos aren't working for me.

    Huey Lewis And The News - Stuck With You
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J08ZwySCoJ8&t=1m29s
    This has been a favorite of mine since my childhood in the 80s. Today it seems relevant because I don't really have any decent alternative to my wife.

    Eddie Holman - Hey There Lonely Girl (cued up to the weird singing part that I particularly like)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmyK_b4DCH4&t=1m14s
    Featured in one of my favorite computer games, Larry Magna Cum Laude.

    Creep - Radiohead
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFkzRNyygfk
    I identified with this song at times as a young man.

    Bad English - When I See You Smile
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cu6pclWsxzs
    The first dance song at my wedding - I chose it because it didn't say that she was gorgeous, etc.

    Journey - Open Arms
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lLm...outu.be&t=1m0s
    A good connection song

    Starship - Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wxyN3z9PL4
    I was considering this for the wedding but the words didn't really fit

    Bangles - Eternal Flame
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tC_VSjBDOz0
    A classic 80's ballad

    Bananarama - Love In The First Degree
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iiy5HO4VKEA
    Fun 80's song

    Nolans - Gotta Pull Myself Together
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLcZ_wtzoSs
    Something about breaking up (I broke up with my wife a few years ago then wanted to get back together)

    The Coasters - Get an ugly girl to marry you
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1ZJiBHh-Yw
    Kind of relevant to me

    Faith + 1 - Jesus Baby
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVMjdkNo4PU
    About a relationship with Jesus

    INTPx Award Winner
    Sebastien Tellier - La Ritournelle
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPWQTLLMAAc

    The official video isn't very good, this one is excellent, fits with the song perfectly and sums up the ups and downs of a lifelong relationship.

    Okay - I'll play. Sorry for all the GS (i'm not that much of a country music listener but these are good songs). Otherwise... sorry came of age in the eighties and nineties...

    The Cure - The Love Cats
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OylJq6L-Wd0
    ever been amped up on someone?

    George Strait - Check Yes or No
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHxS8wlDngI
    Reminds me that love can be kind of simple - if you want it to be.

    Dirty Vegas - Days Go by
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMfGqRUyrWw
    I've gotten stuck before. I miss people.

    George Strait - Run
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajw92yAOye0
    I've run away a lot in my life - this song makes me think how nice it is if you are actually running to something/someone.

    Stevie Nicks & Tom Petty - Stop draggin my heart around
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UD0c58nNCQ
    Ugh - setting boundaries sucks but sometimes you have to stick up for yourself...

    REM - Don't go back to Rockville
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G21ijx_AmUA
    I live in place where a lot of the guys leave for places like AK and ND. This song reminds me of that feeling of not wanting people to leave but it's complicated.

    George Strait - Write this Down
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RShoE41nSWI
    ooh - i've been blindsided - would like to think doing something different might have changed things.
