I’m looking for love songs that don’t have a hint of despair in them. No girlfriend in a coma, no one for my baby and one for the road. Just happy love songs.

I will start you off with:
1. Jersey Girl by Tom Waits (not Bruce Springsteen’s version)

Difficulty: no google searches on ‘happy love songs’ or the like.
