Jackie Briggs: “Kiss Me With Your Mouth,” because wine is always a good substitute for a loved one. Mmm, boy, I like me some wine.
Lindsay Larkin: “Wild Horses” by the Rolling Stones. When I was engaged, we were planning on that for our wedding dance. He was definitely unworthy of the song. No wonder we didn’t make it.
Stephen Matney: My fiancée used to sing, “You’re the Only Woman in the World to Me” to me. So maybe that one. Or something by Yngwie Malmsteen.
Jennifer Higgins: “Burn” by Sister Machine Gun. I am aware that 99 percent of our readers will have no idea who this band is, but that’s their problem.
Susan Kruithof: “For All We Know,” by Dinah Washington … ’nuf said.
Paula Saltas: John’s eyes well up when he hears “Longer Than.” It was our wedding song that we first danced to. I love “Some Enchanted Evening.” Emily Prachthauser: I love Sleater-Kinney’s “Modern Girl.” It’s such a feel-good happy song. Like the feeling you get when you first realize you’re smitten with someone and that someone loves you back!
Nick Clark: Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher.” To this day, it stirs a desire to do “homework.” Boston’s “Amanda” is a good one, too. Now if I could only meet a teacher named Amanda …
Blade Brown: “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails. I don’t know any song more romantic than that one. Sigh.
Faith Burnham: “Cells,” by The Servant. Not your typical love song, but it’s the best ever!
Jerre Wroble: Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful” about does it.
Kathy Mueller: “Time After Time” by Cindy Lauper. Yes, it is sappy but, after 19 years of marriage, is guaranteed to get me in the mood!
Natalie May: “Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton. It’s very sexy.
Lisa Hines: Anything by Paul Menousos. Those aching vocals get me every time!
Benito Chacon: My all-time-favorite love song is Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On.” It’s direct and to the point. Oh, wait, we are talking love songs not baby-making songs. A close second: LL Cool J’s song “I Need Love.” cw
