You have about 10 days to do what you need to do.
Between now and February 14th, inspired by my blogathon on Christmas music, the 10 Greatest Love Songs of All-Time (according to me). Yes, I am a romantic, sentimental fool.

That certainly doesn't do this one justice, one of the greatest instrumentals ever recorded.

Roberta Flack and the late Donny Hathaway did the original, but I really like Fourplay's re-make with Patti Austin and Peabo Bryson on the vocals.
Tomorrow, we begin the top ten countdown.
