Since tomorrow The Mountain Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love (oh, and it's Valentine's Day), I've been thinking about my favorite female love songs. The ones that get stuck in my head... the ones I sing in the shower... the ones I sing along with in the car (and sound SO accurate doing so - ha!)... and the ones I karaoke. These rose to the top:
Cyndi Lauper - Time After Time: I'm an unrepentent Lauper fan and this is (I think) the first love song I ever cared about.
Joan Jett - I Hate Myself For Loving You: Who hasn't had one of those relationships or crushes?
Jefferson Airplane - Somebody To Love: A car sing-along favorite.
Bonnie Raitt - Something To Talk About: I love Bonnie Raitt so much, yet insist on butchering her songs at karaoke. This is a favorite.
