Can You Help Find the Missing Pieces in These Playlists?

I know there are songs I want on these playlists that I'm not remembering, and I'm constantly aware that I have blind spots that may be robbing me of perfect songs. Can you help me attack either issue by looking over one or both playlists then suggesting songs to add? [more inside]

Songs for your true love/arch-nemesis.

I'm looking for more love songs with a specific theme - essentially, "You drive me fucking crazy and sometimes I want to throttle you and we're both kind of fucked up AND ALSO I love you more than anything and need you more than air and think you're the best person ever." [more inside]

Songs for when the boyfriend is away. "Home is wherever I'm with you..."

My boyfriend is away and I'm making a playlist of poppy songs about love that are either cheery (& uptempo) or lovely/sweet (& understated) without being "too much" of a good thing. Currently have two songs: I wouldn't dance and Home. Nothing over-the-top (no Whitney Houston or other full-lung songstresses, nothing overproduced). Any decade is fine by me. Unfortunately, I don't have much happy music and I've run out of songs already (and one of my two songs is already leaning heavily towards sad/wistful!). Any help?

Recommend media that is dark, sad, and beautiful

I love the theatrical, haunting, sad, yet, beautiful music of Lana Del Ray. Can you recommend any similar music, or accompanying literature and cinema? Thank you!

Name this Bath and BodyWorks CD please

OK, so this was, I think, 7-8 years ago. I believe that is was around Christmas time but that could be totally wrong. I bought a CD at Bath and BodyWorks and it was a deep discount like 60% off? And, the topic was Love. It was awesome, real jazzy and there were some french songs on it too.Do you know what this cd was? Or the playlist? this came up bc there is a famous french jazzy love song and i can';t remember what is was so recommendations on that would be great too.

Wistful Songs of Emotional Conflict?

I am looking for more songs similar to 10cc's "I'm not in love". Specifically, songs about attraction or falling in love but feeling conflicted over it or uncomfortable with it or questioning it. Difficulty: Must also be non-venomous, non-hostile, non-accusatory. So I am not looking for songs like "You give love a bad name" or Britney Spears "Toxic". [more inside]

Song request: It's nice to be liked but it's better by far to get paid

I'm looking for songs by female singers which include the trope of prioritizing money over love. I'm going fairly broad with this -- so I have "Material Girl", "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend", and "Shitloads of Money," but also "Maid on the Shore." I'm also willing to go a bit outside those lines -- for instance, "Ka-Ching" (Shania Twain) and "More Money Tonight" (Violent Femmes). The presence of money or other LIQUID assets is the major criterion. What are examples of popular music which contain explicit references to prioritizing money over love? Thanks!

Neverlasting love songs?

"God Only Knows" by the Beach Boys has the best opening line to a love song: I may not always love you. Can you think of any other love songs that have the same vibe of: "I really hope this lasts, but I can't make or ask for promises." [more inside]

I love you, but...

Does anyone know of any song that expresses the idea "I love you, but I'm not leaving my wife for you"? Either English or Spanish is fine.
