Help me make an "I love you" CD for DH

It's his birthday this week. I've got about 10 songs that really say what I feel about him, but just looking for a few more suggestions to make the CD a bit longer. We're pretty ancient, so not looking for anything really modern, and don't like R&B, Soul or Rap type stuff.

He made me one a while back which had things like Time in a Bottle (Jim Croce) on it, so that's the sort of vibe I'm looking for.

All suggestions welcomed smile

"I found someone" by Brian Adams and Barbara Streisand

"Someone Like You" Faye Tozier and (I think) Russel Watson

"Someone like you" Katie Irving (the "dance scene" drom the original Carrie...beautidul)

These ones don't appear on your usual "love song" albums, but I love them.

‘I will always love you’, the Dolly Parton version (much better than Whitney)
‘Just the way you are’, Bruno Mars

Already have a few of those, thanks everyone. Absolutely love the Dolly Parton (proper) version of I Will Always Love You.

Fairyfellows is it not Nights, rather than Knights?

Yes you're right.

Probably a freudian slip on my behalf as I was watching Kingdom of Heaven earlier which features - Knights!!! blush

An obvious choice given my nickname, but
One In A Million You by Larry Graham, figured very prominently in my wedding and is my favourite love song of all time.

Also, anything by Luther Vandross, his voice is heaven on earth.

An oldie but I love Nanci Griffiths, Trouble in the Fields. Is about making it through hard times together.
