Surely this is universal, but I just heard this the other day, so it came first to mind - The Cure, Just Like a Dream. What a happy song. It defeats even the worst cynics.

Good shout on the song though, i was listening to it the other day, I find i cant listen to it too much or it loses a bit of its beauty.
In Lieu of any actual romance on Valentines day, i was singing Cotton Crown whilst out with my housemates, i told them it was the most romantic Sonic Youth song (Or at least the most singable one)

Totally. For those of you who don't know the song... Here's a taste

I got something to say
I killed your baby today
And it doesnt matter much to me
As long as its dead

Well I got something to say
I raped your mother today
And it doesnt matter much to me
As long as she spread

Sweet lovely death
I am waiting for your breath
Come sweet death, one last caress

Countless Nick Cave songs, in fact, but I'll give special mention to that one, plus Into My Arms, Straight To You, and Are You The One That I've Been Waiting For.

Also "To Love Somebody", particularly Gallon Drunk's version.
