Love songs set a great ambience at various restaurants and home parties. They also invoke nostalgia and new thoughts about old feelings. Some of the best love songs in western pop music come from Righteous Brothers, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Madonna and James Blunt. They have composed and sung certain popular numbers that have stayed on for decades. Such numbers still play an important role in helping daters to dedicate songs for their partners in public gatherings and social functions.
