Isn’t everyday a good day for some gushy, smooshy love songs?
Sure it is!
And the 1960s had a whole super ton of them. So, let’s have ourselves a little listening party here with a few of my favorites. I’m limiting myself to 5 because I could make this the longest post EVER.
Which songs am I missing? What would you add to our listening party?
I could add so many more. In fact, I should probably make this a series. There are just SO many great love songs from the sixties. What would you add?
Can’t Help Falling In Love by Elvis is my favorite! Twenty-One Pilots & UB40 remade it but he did it best!
I almost added that one! I agree. He sang it best!
Ditto on Elvis’ “Can’t stop…”
I want to mention the Righteous Brothers and “Unchained Melody”. The context of a released prisoner (originally written for) may not be “universal”, yet the melodious harmony of two great baritones resets the scene to any guy who has been away from his love even for a weekend.
Also, I was curious so googled. Seems that no less than 600 different artists “recorder” this love song. Hmmm, I’d say that was “universal”testimony.
I love Unchained Melody! It really is beautiful. I didn’t know it had been recorded so many times! Wow!
