I am always fascinated with good old songs because they are wonderful to hear, full of meaning, have great melodies and soothing to the ears compare to the blasting and noisy music of present times. Every Sunday I listen to old songs because FM stations play only good oldie songs during Sundays. My top five favorite old songs are the following: 1. Let me try again 2. Walk away 3. You're the best thing that ever happen to me 4. You're closer to me 5. Stranger in the Night How about you?

It is really hard to pick 5 songs. I like roberta flacks the first time I ever saw your face. it's too late baby by carol king, seven bridges road by the eagles and michlle by the beatles and also norweigna wood by the beatles. I just think that there are some really good oldies.

Hello!thanks for your response.I love Roberta Flacks also, I think she's the one who sang the original version of Killing me Softly, that was a very nice song, very soothing.

Hi! This is one of the toughest questions I have ever faced! LOL. I love music so much and having to choose between my favorites (5??) for the top 5 is a feat for me. Hahaha... I think I'll base my answers on what I really dig at the moment :) 1. Listen to Your Heart - Roxette 2. Alone - The Heart 3. Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper 4. I'll Be Over You - Toto 5. Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now - Starship Sorry but I love the 80's :D

Nowadays, I'm fond of listening to oldies because it really makes me relaxed, especially when I came from work. And yes it's really hard to pick just 5 love songs but I usually listens to Dan Hill songs. Because I found his songs so romantic, very sweet voice. I also like some songs of Celine Dion. Very powerful, especially the theme song of Titanic.

Yep, old songs are truly amazing because they carry sentiments and wonderful melodies, it makes me think deeper and sometimes emotional. When I am a bit lonely and frustrated, I listen to all Barry Manilow songs, they are great and fantastic. I loved Carpenter's Love me for what I am.

Oh I love Heal the world too, very wonderful and meaningful song, I love the introduction and the melody is very pleasing. Heal the world is one of the greatest songs ever heard in the music scene. Bravo to the late king of Pop!
