'This is the ride I'm on, this is the ride I want..'

Happy Valentine's Day to my wife and to all of you. I hope you're able to spend time with someone you love today, if that's what makes you happy.

Everyone seems to be doing a list of Valentine's songs, or even great break-up songs - i particularly liked the readers' lists over at Valentines here, BreakUps here.

So before you grab your boombox and Peter Gabriel tape and drive over to your ex-girlfriend's house, what follows are just some of my favorite "love" songs - incorporating, it has to be said, varying degrees of joy - that might inspire you or help you get through today.

Catie Curtis - Magnolia Street

Damien Rice - The Blower's Daughter

Marc Cohn - One Safe Place

James Taylor - Shower The People

Peter Bradley Adams - Always

Mark Knopfler - Romeo and Juliet

Bruce Springsteen - Drive All Night

finally and apparently incongruously, The Puma Hardchorus - Truly Madly Deeply (by Savage Garden)
