We’ve had the day together as a family today, because it’s a national holiday here in the U.K. Discussion soon turned, as it often does at Couple Karma HQ, to the question of the top ten best ever love songs. There was lively disagreement. In the end we agreed to disagree and each came up with our own lists.

So who’s right? Who’s got the better list? And which songs have we missed out? Let us know! 🙂
