Members of the IMDb Poll Board, tell me what your favorite love song is!  I will later compile a list of your picks and that can be made into a poll.  Only one pick to a person, please.  If more than one of you has the same pick, I will simply credit all of you to that song.  Choose anything of any genre of any era!  Thanks!

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls043101261/

The Four Seasons don't have a cover image, so it's blank.  Would you like to see if you can add an cover pic for them?  Or should I put Frankie Valli?  It's your suggestion, I want it to look right - what do you want to do?  :)

My parents once bought a CD from an unknown little group that was performing on the street. They're called Ann'Sanat, and their versions of classic ballads are among my favorite songs. I nominate The Wind that Shakes the Barley, originally written by Robert Dwyer Joyce in 1861 (I can't access the video from my country but it should work for most users):

Will look at Wiki... the group has no IMDb page, but that's okay because it's an image poll.  I suppose I could add a picture of barley?  What do you think?

Yes, or add a picture from The Wind that Shakes the Barley, a movie whose title is based on the ballad.

It's really a shame that the group is so unknown. Such a soulful violin.

Okay, great!  

Yes yes yes!  These 'little' groups should get more attention.  As I said, Journey and a couple other 80's artists are the only big bands I like.  And except for them, most famous bands kinda... stink???  No offense, but the new ones especially are all electronic noise and no writing or talent.  But I could rant for years, lol!  Don't get me started!  :D

Oh, geez, that's a tough one. 'Maybe "Wild Horses" by the Rolling Stones, as performed by the Stones or The Sundays, or "Perfect Circle" by R.E.M., or "California Stars" by Wilco, but actually my favorite might be "This is a Rebel Song" by Sinead O'Connor. I love those songs and I know that there are more that I'm just not remembering right now, lol.

Oh wow, and "Jezebel" by Natalie Merchant and "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green. But I've been trying to be less indecisive lately so I'll say Sinead O'Connor's "This is a Rebel Song" or the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses." I know that's not making a decision, but it's progress, lol. Feel free to choose one of those two.

Something to start as I know it from a longer time. Dreams will be on the waiting list in case two are allowed in the future. Or if someone else wants it perfect to allow it into the list.

"Falling" by LeBlanc & Carr - one hit wonder from the 70's.  It was a hard choice because there are several love songs I like.  I don't see an IMDb page for either Lenny LeBlanc or Pete Carr, the two musicians that comprise this act, or for their band.  But, if you do an image search for them on Google, there are several pictures of them together.

Here is the YouTube link to the song.
Excellent thread, love it.  Thanks!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMKli8afm6s&list=RDGMKli8afm6s&start_radio=1

Now - if you don't want the hassle of finding and adding images for them, then a close 2nd is "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston.  Feel free to use that one instead if you want to make your job easier.  I would be just as happy as having that one instead...lol

LeBlanc and Carr don't have any IMDb pics, but I was able to get the poster for a movie called 'Falling', lol!  It shows a guy with his head on a girl's shoulder, so I guess that makes it look right for the love genre.  :)  Glad you like the thread and thanks!

So, here's the temporary list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls043101261/
Please try the links on your chosen songs - I didn't watch all of them, so I wanna be sure that your suggestion is the right video and such.  
Please do not publish the list yet - I am waiting for more suggestions.  I don't wanna leave anybody out.  :)

My vote for a stand alone "love song" not factoring how it is incorporated how effectively it is incorporated into a movie for effect or the quality of the movie itself,

#5 Give My Regards to Broad Street (1984)
Wings -
"Silly Love Songs" - Wings Hot 100 Peak: No. 1 for five weeks (1976)
