Songs for Distingué Lovers is an album by jazz singer Billie Holiday released in 1957 on Verve Records.
Songs have been written about every topic imaginable, but the best ones - from swooning '50s ballads to contemporary club bangers - have been penned about the ups and downs of being in love. We are counting down the top 50 Hot 100 hits with a form of the word "love" in the title. The romantic tunes cover all seven decades of the Hot 100's history, ranging from 1958's "To Know Him Is to Love Him" by the Teddy Bears to 2011's "We Found Love" by Rihanna. Lulu hated the songs the producers of the film "To Sir With Love" were considering for the soundtrack. She asked her friend Mark London to write a title song she could sing. He composed the music in five minutes and the next day Don Black wrote the lyrics.

Cabaret singer, mother of two, concert and folk festival performer, she's also recorded "Gaelic Envy and Other Torch Songs" and "Songs of the Spanish Civil War and Other Struggles". Nancy lives in Toronto.
Irving Berlin penned "White Christmas" for the classic Christmas movie Holiday Inn, and Bing Crosby delivered a beautifully memorable, if slightly mournful, take on the tune. Crosby got a second shot at the song on the set of White Christmas, where he knocked it out of the park (again). Since then the song has become a standard, performed by artists ranging from Kelly Clarkson to Frank Sinatra, Jim Carrey, and Michael Bublé. There seemed to be no particular reason that the '70s Nashville rockers included an ode to the nativity in the middle of their final album, but we're glad they did. David Bowie and Bing Crosby, "Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth".
From old classic Christmas songs from Bing Crosby, to more popular holiday music from Run-DMC, these are the best Christmas songs of all time. Written by Irving Berlin for the 1942 classic, Holiday Inn, "White Christmas" stands as the best-selling single of all-time and with good reason.
Songs for Distingué Lovers forms part of the last series of extensive small-group recordings that Lady Day would make in the studio. Although her voice was largely shot at this point, she puts so much feeling into the lyrics that it's easy to overlook her dark sound. There are plenty of short solos for Edison, Webster, and Kessel.
Flack made it famous by adding it to her 1969 album First Take. Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper. An iconic song from the 1984 album She's So Unusual, which just so happened to be Lauper's solo debut. It went straight to the top of the charts and garnered a Grammy Award nomination. I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston. Often considered the standout track from the 1992 soundtrack for The Bodyguard, the mere mention of this song conjures images of Kevin Costner carrying Whitney Houston in his arms. When a Man Loves a Woman" by Percy Sledge
Listen to the best summer songs playlist. As written by George Gershwin and DuBose Heyward for the seminal 1935 American folk opera Porgy & Bess, it’s a lullaby sung by a poor young mother in the slums of South Carolina, assuring her child of a tranquil world that is nowhere around them. Fish don’t jump on Catfish Row, and the living sure as hell isn’t easy.
