Name That Tune, Part 2

And we’re back! A few weeks ago I wrote about music and romantic moments – I threw out a couple of books with great music tie-ins, and even mentioned a few songs. And then I thought: everyone needs a (new) good (swoonworthy) playlist! So I’ve compiled a list of ten songs I love that are played at key (romantic) moments in a variety of movies and TV shows (went a bit old school on some of these) to help inspire you while you’re trying to drum up your own romantic moments (writers) or while you’re enjoying some of your favorite literary scenes (readers). Check it out below:

But let me know – what did I forget? Sound off below on anything you think I missed and which TV, book or movie it’s from. Can’t wait to get listening!

Okay, this is a more obscure one, but the movie “Music From Another Room” with Truly, Madly, Deeply by Savage Garden. Jude Law and Gretchen Mol kiss!
