My next music project: 80's/90's songs featuring the word "love" in the title

A few weeks ago I started what I considered to be an ambitious side project, collecting the greatest 80's power/monster ballads.  Apparently, many of you felt this was also a noble effort.  J


Now, I'm going to try and take this a step further.  I'm going to try to get a CD together of each and every 70's/80's/90's song with "love" featured in the title.  I was going to include the 60's, but hey…I've got to go to back to work some time.  Now a little about me: I'm a lifelong rocker, but I like all genres of music, so there's some dance, some new wave, perhaps some country, and some Top 40 pop stuff.


Here's what I came up with off the top of my head:


q       Depeche Mode – "Strangelove"

q       Def Leppard - "When Love & Hate Collide"

q       Book of Love "I Touch Roses" (OK…this is the band's name, not the song title, but it's a great new wave dance song)

q       Erasure – "Chains of Love"

q       Nazareth – "Love Hurts"

q       Scorpions – "Lovedrive"

q       Scorpions - “Still Loving You“

q       Def Leppard - “Love Bites“

q       Kiss - “I Still Love You“

q       Kiss – "Love Gun"

q       Tesla - “Love Song“ (these guys started gigging on Guam in the 80's!  For realz!)

q       Saigon Kick - “Love is on the Way"

q       The Cardigans – "Lovefool"

q       Pantera - "This Love"

q       Motley Crue – "Too Young to Fall in Love"

q       Kelly Clarkson – "The Trouble with Love Is" (Kelly and I have the same birthday - April 24!  And ironically, so does Barbara Streisand!)

q       Dokken – "It's Not Love"

q       Tonic – "The Way She Love Me"

q       W.A.S.P. – "Love Machine"

q       FireHouse – "Love of A Lifetime"

q       Queensryche – "I Don't Believe in Love"


What I need is your help…feel free to add your own songs…there are undoubtedly many I missed out on.  Have fun with this!
