My favorite slow song of all time is David Gray's "Be Mine."  I used it as my entrance song for my wedding instead of the traditional music.  I also like Ben Folds' "The Luckiest."

Generally, I think I end up liking music that has honesty in the message and is very personal, but not cliche and cheesy.  Both of these songs fit that description.  Every once in a while there will be a slow song on the radio that I like the first time I hear it (like Christina Aguilera's "You are Beautiful") but then it gets so overplayed that I find myself hating it.

I am not sure this belongs in social sciences. Nonetheless, my favorites are classical or instrumentals. I like to play classical music in my classroom because it soothes and evokes an emotional response. Some of my kids hum or strum along, or sway. Nothing beats the classics.

Let's go for a classic George Harrison/Beatles' song. "Something in the Way She Moves." It's slow; it's romantic; it's plantive; and it mixes it up enough, so that it is not predictably cheesy.

I have quite a few... on the top of my head, I can say, Prince 'International Lover,' All-4-One 'I Swear,' Boyz II Men 'End Of The Road' and 'Dear God,' Celine Dion and R Kelly 'I'm Your Angel,' The Commodores 'Easy,' Freddie Jackson 'Rock Me Tonight,' John Hiatt 'Straight To The Heart Of Love,' Lionel Richie 'Stuck On You,' Prince 'Nothing Compares 2 U,' Prince 'The Most Beautiful Girl In The World,' and Prince 'The Beautiful Ones.'

Thanks for your question!
