    Sorry, no. A few of these songs are good, but “At Last” at #14? Definitely a top 5. And where is “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”? In fact this list pretty much denies that love songs existed before 1960. Where’s Sinatra? Where’s Ella? Cole Porter? Stupid teenyboppers at EW! (btw: I’m 22). Wil

  3. Yeah, these wouldn’t be my choices, either. Ella singing “always” is #1 for me, “Dream a Little Dream” is on mine, too, and I would never pick the Whitney version over Dolly.

    But there were some songs on here I had never really considered so I threw it onto the blog.
