Stop! In the name of love (songs)!

It’s time for yet another Valentine’s Ranked Special! Music and Love have gone hand in hand since the dawn of the cavemen (probably). As long as there has been music, there have been people out there singing about their feelings for one another. So how do you make a good song from a topic that has been covered millions of times without being overly cheesy, obvious, and copying what’s come before? Join Tuong La and Palentine’s Kristy Matheson, Amanda Gulka-Armstrong, and Laura Gordon as they get hot and steamy while ranking Top 5 Love Songs!
