Question: What are the best romantic love songs?

Answer: Mostly the classics.

Classic Love Songs:

     Sticking to the classics means you can't go wrong. The 'classics' can refer to both a time and a genre pertaining to love songs from the golden age of jazz, the big band era. Jazz standards are the core of "the Great American Songbook." Such music usually features the choruses from broadway musical numbers that singers like Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Dean Martin, Louis Armstrong, and Sammy Davis, Jr. made famous. Some of those songs include:
