So my wife and I have been having a day long debate on the greatest love song ever written. We've decided that picking one is just impossible but it got me curious, what 3 songs (any genre) would you put as the greatest love songs written?

Oh man... that's tough.

What did you come up with?

I'm not overly big into the genre, but this came to mind right away.

Just like the ambiguity of the Grammy's between Record of the Year and Song of the Year, did you mean the best lyrics (without reference to the song itself, just the lyrics), or the best song (in terms of combo music-beat). Huge difference according to the people at the Grammy's
