“…And the next song is dedicated to all the lovers in the room.” Who hasn’t heard this sentence at a party at least once in their life? Whether it was at a high school dance or at a wedding, it seems we can’t escape these slow dance tunes. The following is a compilation of some of the best romantic songs from the last 70 years. Side A is a nostalgic homage to our grandparents and our parents, where Side B features an amalgamation of songs Millennials had their first slow dance to, along with some more recent ones.
