Timeless Tunes for Lovers

There's nothing more romantic than listening to a great love song. From Stevie Wonder to Mariah Carey, there are an abundance of great slow jams to get you in the mood for love. A classic love song speaks to your heart and soul while making you long for your significant other or dream of finding that one true love. I'm sure this Valentine's Day many of you will be listening to timeless romantic tunes.

I'm a die-hard R&B music fan, but what's your favorite love song or ballad singer?

Here are a few of my top picks:


"Amazing Love" by Luther Vandross.


"Dangerously in Love" by Beyonce


"Angel" by Anita Baker


"We Belong Together" by Mariah Carey


"Ribbon in the Sky" by Stevie Wonder

You're in my iPod this morning, BGG! I was headed to the gym this morning listening to "Superstar" by Luther. Anita has and always will be one of my favorites. I am an old soul and love classic r&b.

Well my goodness! You picked all my favorites. I would also add Endless Love by Lionel and Diana and Celine Dion's Titanic song. Well, now that I'm thinking about it, I have many favorites!

Oh so looooooong for this night I prayed that a staaaarrrr would guide you my way to share wiiittthhh me this special day. There's a Ribbon in the Sky for our love!

That song just makes you want to get married....GET married not BE married! ahahahahahaha

I'm so glad Luther is at the top of your list! My fave R&B love song would have to be Musiq SoulChild's "Who Knows", although his other ballad " Don't Change" is a close second.

Oh my!

To pick one favorite would be impossible! I will list my top five:

"You're The One I Love" by Jesse Powell

"Make Me Whole" by Amel Larrieux

"Love Don't Do" by Jon B.

"Kiss of Life" by Sade

"Love You More" by Ginuwine

I could go on and on all day with this one though. Like yourself, I am a huge R&B fan.
