    Thought I’d start a list with some nice love songs that I like. Your contribution is welcome, but please provide the name of the band and the title in or above the link. I’ll start off with this one:

    John Waite – Missing You

    Carlos Henrique

    1980s romantic songs

    Foreigner – “Waiting for a Girl Like You”
    Kate Bush – “Wow”
    Squeeze – “Tempted”
    REO Speedwagon – “Keep On Loving You”
    Cutting Crew – “(I Just) Died in Your Arms”
    Roxy Music – “More Than This”
    Toto – “Africa”
    Mr. Mister – “Broken Wings”
    Night Ranger – “Sister Christian”
    Luther Vandross – “Never Too Much”


    Steamed Powerd Giraffe: Honey Bee and also I will rust with you.
    Aleksander Rybak: OOO AAA

    I think of my potato man when I listen to them.


    Careless Whisper – George Michael

    Can we define “Romantic” here?

    I can think of quite a few songs that are not in the category of music above that would fit my idea of romantic, at least partially. Not in the traditional sense, sure but the idea is still there. Think “Stay” by Cradle of Filth, “Temptation” by Cradle of Filth (not the squeaky original, please.), “Darkest Part” and “Yours Again” by Red…etc. I could dig up others by other bands too if need be. Too many things floating around in my head at the moment to recall more given that I have been on a COF binge lately.


    A couple of favourite songs to cuddle to:

    Ott – Queen of All Everything
    Younger Brother – Psychic Gibbon
    Carbon Based Lifeforms – Frog
    The XX – Angels
    Funkadelic – Maggot Brain
    Carbon Based Lifeforms – 20 Minutes

    These are the best ones I can think of off the bat. A lot of these songs don’t really have a whole lot of lyrics, however, they still provoke deep emotions for me and I see them as quite romantic, haha.


    There are not many progressive rock/related love songs, but a few come to mind right now. Of course, there are others and I know I am missing a lot; however, let me list a few from this genre.

    10 CC – I’m Not In Love (actually, the singer is in love but is trying desperately to deny it)

    Genesis – Afterglow, Undertow (and many other songs from this band also but it was the “pop” Genesis of the 1980’s)

    Bjork – All Is Full Of Love (Album mix…not the radio mix with that drum beat); there are others from this artist also. Vespertine is my favorite album from her.

    Yes – Turn Of The Century

    And ones that are not progressive, but guilty pleasures of mine…
    Harry Nilsson – Without You

    Eric Carmen – All By Myself (which he almost stole from Rachmaninov’s 2nd Piano Concerto, 2nd Movement)

    Beach Boys – Don’t Cry (Put Your Head On My Shoulder) (Three minutes of feeling like time is standing still as you embrace the atmosphere of beauty and calmness in this song)

    Foreigner – Waiting For A Girl Like You (I liked this one when I was a kid – what a beautiful synth intro)

    If I can think of more, I can post them here if interested. Have a wonderful day. I hope you like these songs.
