Hi minato, thanks for the comment and for checking out the songs. I'm glad some familiar songs made it to the list that you liked. Love has a way of fitting well into different genres which makes for a nice mix of music and styles.

I'm not familiar with many of the songs in your list, but I like the songs you included that I'm familiar with. You are right, the list transcends genres because it's a mix of old and new alike.
