Top 10 Love Songs Eva Bru, EVA!

Not all love songs are performed by Brian Adams. It's TRUE! So we at BlindBlimp have put together a (highly subjective) definitive nzima Top 10 list of love songs. Valentine's Day has to be good for something. Why shouldn't it be making lists? Hurrah!

Of course, narrowing the field from thousands to 10 was not an easy task and a certain amount of 'you suck' and 'damn you and your principles' type attacks were made. So before we get to the list of nzima, we have a few special mentions (in no particular order):
  • Kiss You on the Cheek - Desmond & the Tutus
  • Just Like You Are and A Love Like This Is So Damn Hard To Find - Fire Through the Window
  • Clear Blue Air - Turin Brakes
  • Here and Now and Be My Downfall - Del Amitri
  • No Tomorrow - Orson
Michael Cera and Ellen Page in Juno
Top 10 Love Songs Ever Bru, EVA!
    10. No One's Gonna Love You - Band of Horses
    9. Can't Get Along (Without You) - Hard Fi
    8. She Moves in Her Own Way - The Kooks
    7. Let's Fall back In Love - Slow Club
    6. Fall, Fall, Fall – Razorlight
    5. 40 Day Dream - Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes
    4. Into the Dark - Ben Lee
    3. To Be Alone With You - Bob Dylan
    2. Something - The Beatles
    1. Anyone Else But You - Michael Cera & Ellen Page
Personal taste presented a few issues with the BlindBlimp team not being 100% in agreement over certain songs. Vicky pushed for (to no avail!):
  • Paris 2004 -  Peter, Bjorn and John
  • Back of the Van - Ladyhawke
  • Baby You’re My Light - Richard Hawley
  • To Be Alone With You - Sufjan Stevens
Her official comment in this regard is: "Damn veetoes."

Christine would have had Something be no 1, but since Vicky is anti-Beatles it had to be bumped. Democracy reigns. She also feels that I Got a Girl by Tripping Daisy is well awesome and deserves a mention.
