The 10 Best Love Songs by Phoenix Bands

Everyone loves a great love song. Passionate hyperbole about the glowing light of romance's grand glory that can uplift and soothe an aching heart or nurture love's first embrace. Really, love just wouldn't be the same without great song to accompany it. There's just nothing better than hearing hit those high notes in or letting loose on

But songs such as Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" or Bette Midler's "Wind Beneath My Wings" are classics -- and it's high time for them to be retired. In their place a new crop of love songs has grown -- a more realistic, less idealistic, more sarcastic, and a little less ecstatic breed of musical paeans that tell the story of love from a more down-to-earth perspective.
