  1. I love this list. Distance and time by alicia keys is one of my favourites. and I appreciate that there is a backstreet boys song that made it to the list

  2. I listened to A Thousand Miles yesterday and I found you post about it again today. What a coincidence!

    It is great you’ve put the youtube video here, so I can add it to my youtube playlist right away.

    And, my favourite love song is “close to you”. I love the version of Olivia Ong the most. You can find it on youtube too =)

  3. What a wonderful collection of songs referring to love relationships. I have listened to a few and they are really capturing the moment.

  4. What an interesting and useful site! I love your concept. My 2 favorites are Right here waiting and Alicia keys distance and time. They are super intense, highly emotional. Makes you yearn for that love one across the seas. Long distance relationships are super difficult for me, I don’t know how others do it. It must be real love!! lol. I like the way you add a piece of the lyrics as well. You should come up with the songs as a playlist that distant lovers can download maybe but then again there might be copyright issues. I think your concept has a lot of potential.

    1. Thank you for dropping by and your encouraging words Dywan! It is difficult but just like any other relationship, there will always be an obstacles. In long distance relationship case, its the distance and probably timezone difference too. But we know the next day will be happier than the days before, that’s how we hang on! 🙂

  5. This is wonderful song you introduce. I really appreciate it and most of the time I listen to “never be alone by shawn mendes” and My love from West Life”. The post of yours are more encouraging for those who are having a distance relationship. Keep it up and I will share your post too.
