Jill, I forgot those two. I'm tweaking my list to replace Lessons In Love - Level 42 with No More I Love You's - Annie Lennox.

How about "YOU AIN'T NOTHING BUT A HOUND DOG"? I think its an Elvis song but I only have heard Eric Clapton play it.

Lol, my cousin bro and I dedicated this song on the radio to our sisters!

Don't forget the rule, Roshan. "Love" must be in the song title.
