Survey Reveals Americas All Time Favorite Love Songs

topsongsWhen I was in High School mixed CDs were the thing. And how exciting was it if the person you liked made you a special mix of songs that made them think of you? The last mixed CD I was given was in college. The guy who made it for me is now my husband but it wasn’t a romantic gesture.  It was a special request I made after I decided that it was time for my daughter and I to listen to more than just the Backyardigans album and get down to some (age appropriate) lyrics that were sang by people not cartoon characters.

Nowadays you can forgo CDs altogether and download music on your iPod. In just minutes the song that came to mind sending you on a trip down memory lane can be downloaded and stored in your music device. In a matter of seconds you can relive that moment when you and your love locked eyes on the dance floor, the time you serenaded each other on a road trip, or the time you slow danced in the kitchen while your little one watched giggling.

Now what song has the ability to do that? Chances are it’s one of the 10 songs Sony Electronics revealed after conducting their “first-ever” survey of American’s favorite love songs of all time. This nationwide survey had participants pick their favorites from a list of over 40 “hits spanning the last several decades.”

Take a look at the list to see if your favorite made the list:
