100 greatest love songs

For Valentine’s Day, music critic for the New York Daily News, Jim Farber, posted his top 100 love songs. I saw several songs on there that I like, including one I am not sure he got right. He has one of my all time favs at #59 – Shining Star by Earth, Wind & Fire (a moment of silent awe for EWF).

Ok, back. Thing is, I think he must have meant the Shining Star song by The Manhattans. Now that’s a love song.

Anyway, so being reminded of Shining Star by EWF, I looked for it on YouTube and found a couple of very unsatisfying versions by the original band. But I did find this cover by metal band Stryper which is actually pretty Sweet. Pretty Sweet, get it?
