Romantic Music – List #4

Johnny Mathis kept love and romance light, easy and Wonderful Wonderful in the 50’s. Groups like the Platters, Flamingos and Duprees in the 50’s and early ‘60’s nailed the meaning of true romance with their smooth and subtle songs. Bertie Higgins’ romantic hit, Key Largo, reminds us of the classic love story shared between Bogie and Bacall in the 40’s, while soul icon of love, Barry White, with his deep and powerful voice, had all the ladies swooning in the 80’s.

Love songs will always come and go, but take a stroll back in time and let these songs bring back some special memories.
