This list has a lot of crap songs on it. The Twelfth Of Never by Johnny Mathis. I Can't Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presley. Mostly anything by Nat King Cole.

More Time Out music lists
How in the world did Kanye West make the top 50? I almost ditched the entire list after seeing that on the first page, I feel sorry for whatever woman falls in love with the man who thought a song with lyrics like "I wanna f**k you hard on da sink, then I wanna give ya somethin ta drink" is even remotely romantic. Why no country songs? Just off the top of my head, I cross my heart, by George Strait comes to mind and there are literally hundreds of other country songs that are MUCH better than Kanye's drug induced rabble, this is a disgrace.
