Five Great Long Term Love Songs

Most love songs are about falling in love, or getting back together, or just about lust.  Few and far between are songs that celebrate being together in a stable, joyous relationship for a long time (especially marriage!).  As Valentine’s Day comes up, here are the first five great songs I could think of about love that has lasted and grown over a long time, alphabetical by artist:

Eric Clapton, “Wonderful Tonight”

Chris De Burgh, “The Lady In Red”

Collin Raye, “One Boy, One Girl”

Kenny Rogers, “Through the Years”

Shania Twain, “Still the One”
