What's the first song you remember thinking was "romantic"?

Asked by eponymoushipster (20237points) June 18th, 2009

Do you still find it romantic, or do you think it’s pure cheese now? Would you even listen to it now?

Mine, oddly enough, is Remember by BT.

I believe my first song was probably Close to You by The Carpenters. Still don’t think it’s cheese. Love it still.

Truly by Lionel Richie. I remember thinking how amazing it would be to have a girl feel that way about you and feeling the same way.

Probably “My Love” by Wings. I was a wee thing at the time, but I thought it was a sweet song. I don’t exactly find it cheesy these days, but it’s not something I’d queue up on my iPod.

Slow Dancing by Johnny Rivers – seventh grade Christmas dance, I still smile every time I hear it.

I’ll Be by Edwin McCain, it was the first song I remember thinking, wow, I hope someone could feel that way about me someday.

Unchained Melody, maybe. I grew up during the dawn of MTV, but my parents listened to nothing but the oldies station. Also because of Ghost.

“father figure” by George Michael

I didn’t really understand all the lyrics but it sounded romantic to me and I liked it.

eponymoushipster's avatar

Desperado by The Eagles. I lost my virginity to that song. Man, I really miss that girl!

nmguy's avatar

Moon River did it for me.

Hallelujah – Jeff Buckley.

A close friend and massive crush played it for me on the piano. I swooned. I still love it.

@eponymoushipster….You bet, but she says she feels something pulling her to Philadelphia. She also wants to know if she can call you “the sexy monkey”?

eponymoushipster's avatar

@whatthefluther who doesn’t call me that?!

whatthefluther's avatar

well, eh, you know I call you “that damn monkey” but “sexy” is always implied, I mean wtf…it goes without saying!

whatthefluther's avatar

Hey eh…What kind of a silly question is this anyway? You shooting for the big 10K today? Patience, monkey man…you’ll be there soon enough.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@whatthefluther ha. no, the song i mentioned in the comments to the question came on the other day, and i hadn’t heard it in a long time.

This is my first “romantic” song… worked the first time i listened to it…. still chokes me up.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Dr_C i had that album.

Clair's avatar

The first song I thought was romantic was “My Heart Will Go On.”
PAHAHAHA

Dr_C's avatar

@Clair that song is one of the best ways to kill an erection…

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Clair may God have mercy on your soul.

fireinthepriory's avatar

Kiss Me by Sixpence None The Richer. I think that if I heard it now for the first time I would potentially get queasy, but it holds a soft spot in my heart. :) Kind of embarrassing, haha, but it’s a cute song.

Clair's avatar

@Dr_C and @eponymoushipster ..I know I know. This was the first, therefore I was really young. From therapy, I know realize that this song should be banned and it really wasn’t my fault.
I apologize if you puked in your mouth a little.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Clair i can respect that.

i’m really really hoping someone says something by Lords of Acid

hearkat's avatar

@Dr_C: That YouTube video won’t play on my iPhone… what song is it?

Dr_C's avatar

@hearkat “you don’t love me any more” by Weird Al

Jude's avatar

No laughing ;-). I’m a child of the 80’s and at our grade 8 grad dance the big song at the time was Heaven by Bryan Adams. I remember dancing with smelly, sweaty boys who kept stepping on my feet..

Aethelwine's avatar

This song for me. I was going to say that it’s cheese now but then I started listening, felt 12 again, and started to tear up. :`)

Exploding Boy by the Cure

calvinette's avatar

This is so messed up, but it was “Elvira” by the Oak Ridge Boys. I wasn’t allowed to listen to secular music until I was about 10 years old, when my gramma bought me a transistor radio, against my parents’ wishes. The song didn’t really do anything for me, but it was on the radio CONSTANTLY that year. It was the first song I remember hearing that wasn’t either religious or a kids’ song from a PBS show or The Muppets. It took me a minute but then I realized they were singing about “boy and girl” stuff.

“I Will Follow HIm” by Mary Something. Boy, is it a cheesey song!

“I will follow him,
follow him wherever he may go.
There isn’t an ocean too deep,
a mountain so high it can keep,
keep me away.”

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities only if you like your bitches and hoes all hot and bothered.~

eponymoushipster's avatar

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities i dunno. i don’t have a fitted cap on backwards to help me think about such deep things.

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

It’s hard to get more romantic than a bald woman.

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

@jonsblond thanks for reminding me of a singer I cannot stand.

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities thanks for reminding me of a band I despise. And is it just me, or does Sinead OConnor look like a 12 yr old boy?
