Let Me Love You - Mario
Mario didn't realize this song was going to be so huge. "I didn't know it would touch so many people," he says. "But it was an emotional song and those records last forever."

LYRICS:
Mm
Mm
Yeah
Mm
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Mm
Uh
Yeah
Mm
Yeah, yeah
Baby I just don't get it
Do you enjoy being hurt?
I know you smelled the perfume,
The make-up on his shirt
You don't believe his stories
You know that they're all lies
Bad as you are, you stick around
And I just don't know why
If I was ya man (baby you'd)
Never worry bout (what I do)
I'd be coming home (back to you)
Every night, doin' you right
You're the type of woman (deserves good things)
Fist full of diamonds (hand full of rings)
Baby you're a star (I just want to show you, you are)
You should let me love you
Let me be the one to
Give you everything you want and need
Baby good love and protection
Make me your selection
Show you the way love's supposed to be
Baby you should let me love you, love you, love you,
Love you yeah
Listen
Your true beauty's description
Looks so good that it hurts
You're a dime plus ninety-nine
And it's a shame don't even know what you're worth
Everywhere you go they stop and stare
'Cause you're bad and it shows
From your head to your toes, out of control, baby you know
If I was ya man (baby you'd)
Never worry bout (what I do)
I'd be coming home (back to you)
Every night doin' you right
You're the type of woman (deserves good things)
Fist full of diamonds (a hand full of rings)
Baby you're a star (I just want to show you, you are)
You should let me love you
Let me be the one to
Give you everything you want and need
Ooh baby good love and protection
Make me your selection
Show you the way love's supposed to be
Baby you should let me
You deserve better girl (you know you deserve better)
We should be together girl (baby)
With me and you it's whatever girl, hey!
So can we make this thing ours?
You should let me love you
Let me be the one to
Give you everything you want and need
Good love and protection
Make me your selection
Show you the way love's supposed to be

Love Hangover - Diana Ross
Other labels were heavily into disco in 1976 but not Motown. So it was an anomaly for Ross to record this Pam Sawyer/Marilyn McLeod tune. Ross had no problem with the slow, seductive first half but started laughing when the beats-per-minute increased, protesting she couldn't sing that part. Producer Hal Davis created a club atmosphere in the studio and Ross got into it, resulting in another No. 1 hit for the former Supreme.

LYRICS:
If there's a cure for this
I don't want it
I don't want it
If there's a remedy
I'll run from it
From it
Think about it all the time
Never let it out of my mind
'Cause I love you
I've got the sweetest hangover
I don't wanna get over
Sweetest hangover
Yeah, I don't wanna get over
I don't wanna get
I don't wanna get over
Ooh, I don't need no cure
I don't need no cure
I don't need no cure
Sweet lovin'
Sweet, sweet love
Sweet, sweet love
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet love
Don't call a doctor (sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet)
Don't call her momma
Don't call her preacher (love)
No, I don't need it
I don't want it
Sweet love, I love you
Sweet love, need love
If there's a cure for this
I don't want it
I don't want it no, no
I don't want it
If there's a cure for this
I don't need it
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet love
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet love
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet love
Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet love

Love Is Blue - Paul Mauriat
Five years after he co-wrote Peggy March's No. 1 hit "I Will Follow Him," Mauriat was back on top of the Hot 100 with an instrumental cover of "L'Amor Est Bleu," Luxembourg's entry in the 1967 Eurovision Song Contest. Vicki Leandros performed the song, which placed fourth in the annual songfest.

LYRICS:
Blue, blue, my world is blue
Blue is my world now I'm without you
Gray, gray, my life is gray
Cold is my heart since you went away
Red, red, my eyes are red
Crying for you alone in my bed
Green, green, my jealous heart
I doubted you and now we're apart
When we met how the bright sun shone
Then love died, now the rainbow is gone
Black, black, the nights I've known
Longing for you so lost and alone

Love Is Thicker Than Water - Andy Gibb
Robin Gibb was considered the "chart freak" in the family but Andy was an avid chart watcher too, and he kept track of his second single's progress up the Hot 100. "It slowed down…we were all a little scared," he once recalled. "It lost…its jump in sales activity. And then…it just picked up and nothing stopped it."

LYRICS:
Love is higher then a mountain
Love is thicker than water
You are this dreamers only dream
Heaven's angel , devil's daughter
Say, my mind , should I go with her on silent nights
She'll drive me crazy in the end
And I should leave this paradise
But I can't leave her
while I need her more then she needs you
That's what I'm living for
Love is , higher than a mountain
Love is , thicker than water
You are this dreamers only dream
Heaven's angel , devil's daughter
Say my thought, should I find out she don't care at all
She'll leave me crying in the end
Wandering through the afterglow
But I can't leave her
While I need her more then she needs you
That's what I'm praying for
Love is , higher than a mountain
Love is , thicker than water
You are this dreamers only dream
Heaven's angel , devil's daughter
Love is , higher than a mountain
Love is , thicker than water
You are this dreamers only dream
Heaven's angel , devil's daughter
La ....

Love Rollercoaster - Ohio Players
After struggling for 15 years, the group scored a No. 1 hit in 1975 with "Fire," from their first album for Mercury. The follow-up LP, "Honey," yielded a single, "Sweet Sticky Thing," that stalled at No. 33. It was the second single, "Love Rollercoaster," that returned the group to pole position.

LYRICS:

Love Song - Sara Bareilles
The singer from Eureka, Calif. made her chart debut with this song. Although it didn't reach No. 1 on the Hot 100, it topped the Adult Contemporary and Adult Pop Songs charts.

LYRICS
Head under water
And they tell me to breathe easy for a while
The breathing gets harder, even I know that
You made room for me but it's too soon to see
If I'm happy in your hands
I'm unusually hard to hold on to
Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this
You mean well, but you make this hard on me
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'cause you asked for it
'cause you need one, you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'cause you tell me it's
Make or breaking this
If you're on your way
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving I'm gonna need a better reason to write you a love song today
I learned the hard way
That they all say things you want to hear
And my heavy heart sinks deep down under you
And your twisted words, your help just hurts
You are not what I thought you were
Hello to high and dry
Convinced me to please you
Made me think that I need this too
I'm trying to let you hear me as I am
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'cause you asked for it
'cause you need one, you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'cause you tell me it's
Make or breaking this
If you're on your way
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving I'm gonna need a better reason to write you a love song today
Promise me that you'll leave the light on
To help me see with daylight, my guide, gone
'cause I believe there's a way you can love me because I say
I won't write you a love song
'cause you asked for it
'cause you need one you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'cause you tell me it's make or breaking this
Is that why you wanted a love song
'cause you asked for it
'cause you need one you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'cause you tell me it's make or breaking this
If you're on your way
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If your heart is nowhere in it
I don't want it for a minute
Babe, I'll walk the seven seas when I believe that there's a reason to
Write you a love song today

Love Story - Taylor Swift
It's not a surprise that Swift wrote this song based on a real guy she was dating. Her family disapproved, inspiring her to base the song on the most famous "Love Story" of all, "Romeo and Juliet," but this time with a happy ending.

LYRICS:
We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes and the flashback starts
I'm standing there on a balcony in summer air
See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns
See you make your way through the crowd
And say hello
Little did I know
That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet"
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you, please, don't go
And I said,
"Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting, all that's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story, baby just say yes
So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet 'cause we're dead if they knew
So close your eyes, escape this town for a little while
'Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter
And my daddy said "Stay away from Juliet"
But you were everything to me, I was begging you, please, don't go
And I said Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I'll be waiting, all there's left to do is run
You'll be the prince and I'll be the princess
It's a love story baby just say yes
Romeo save me, they're trying to tell me how to feel
This love is difficult, but it's real
Don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess
It's a love story, baby just say "Yes"
Oh, oh
I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you was fading
When I met you on the outskirts of town
And I said
"Romeo save me, I've been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head? I don't know what to think"
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said
"Marry me, Juliet, you'll never have to be alone
I love you and that's all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress
It's a love story, baby just say yes"
Oh, oh,
Oh, oh
'Cause we were both young when I first saw you.

Love Takes Time - Mariah Carey
Her first album was being mastered when Carey played a demo of this song for label president Don Ienner aboard a plane. Carey was told the song was a "career-maker" and despite her protests, the presses were stopped and the song was added to her debut release.

LYRICS:
I had it all
But I let it slip away
Couldn't see that I treated you wrong
Now I wander around
Feeling down and cold
Trying to believe that you're gone
Love takes time
To heal when you're hurting so much
Couldn't see that I was blind
To let you go
I can't escape the pain
Inside
'Cause love takes time
I don't want to be here
I don't wanna be here alone
Losing my mind
From this hollow in my heart
Suddenly I'm so incomplete
Lord I'm needing you now
Tell me how to stop the rain
Tears are falling down endlessly
Love takes time
To heal when you're hurting so much
Couldn't see that I was blind
To let you go
I can't escape the pain
Inside
'Cause love takes time
And I don't want to be here
I don't wanna be here alone
You might say that it's over
You might say that you don't care
You might say you don't miss me
You don't need me
But I know that you do and I feel that you do inside
Love takes time
To heal when you're hurting so much
Couldn't see that I, I was so blind
To let you go
I can't escape the pain
Inside
'Cause love takes time
I don't want to be there
I don't wanna be there alone

Love Will Keep Us Together - Captain and Tennille
Four months after he was No. 1 on the Hot 100 with "Laughter in the Rain," Neil Sedaka was back on top, as a songwriter, thanks to Captain and Tennille's cover of a song A&M's Kip Cohen heard on the "Sedaka's Back" album.

LYRICS:
Love
Love will keep us together
Think of me babe, whenever
Some sweet-talking girl comes along, singing her song
Don't mess around, you've just got to be strong, just stop
'Cause I really love you, stop
I'll be thinking of you
Look in my heart and let love keep us together
You
You belong to me now
Ain't gonna set you free now
When those girl start hanging around talking me down
Hear with your heart and you won't hear a sound, just stop (stop)
'Cause I really love you, stop (stop)
I'll be thinking of you
Look in my heart and let love keep us together
Whatever
Young and beautiful
But someday your looks will be gone
When the others turn you off
Who'll be turning you on?
I will, I will, I will
I will be there to share forever
Love will keep us together
I said it before and I'll say it again while others pretend
I need you now and I'll need you then, just stop (stop)
'Cause I really love you, stop (stop)
I'll be thinking of you
Look in my heart and let love keep us together
Whatever, ba-ba-ba-ba-ba, whatever
I will, I will, I will, I will
You better stop
'Cause I really love you, stop (stop)
I'll be thinking of you
Look in my heart and let love keep us together
Whatever, ba-ba-ba-ba-ba, whatever
I will, I will, I will, I will

No one else can make me feel
The colors that you bring
Stay with me while we grow old
And we will live each day in springtime
'Cause lovin' you has made my life so beautiful
And every day of my life is filled with lovin' you
Lovin' you, I see your soul come shinin' through
And every time that we, ooh
I'm more in love with you
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la

No one else can make me feel
The colors that you bring
Stay with me while we grow old

'Cause lovin' you is easy 'cause you're beautiful
And every day of my life is filled with lovin' you
Lovin' you, I see your soul come shinin' through
And every day that we, ooh
I'm more in love with you

Do do do do do
Na, ooh, la la la la la la la la la
Do do do do do
