R&B singers have put their Midas Touch on an array of love songs. Some sang 'I Can't Get Enough of You' ballads, while others got straight on down to the Nitty Gritty. Some even bid farewell to their only true loved one on wax. There's a long history of songs that have inspired generations to emulate the lyrics of what the singer is singing.

For Valentine's Day, we enlisted a brain trust (if you will) to help select and rank love songs that were recorded by the Grammy Awards. BlackVoices.com compiled a mix of old and new.

A true mix of the latest and greatest, here is our ranking of picks Top 30 Love Songs and the Black Grammy Award winners who recorded them. Don't expect the obvious. You may be surprised who's #1.

Hello Gorgeous!!

I think most fail to realize.....the list is just the opinion of those who believe these songs are the best. Just because a group get together, listen to songs, and put it in print, doesn't mean it's true. I could think of at least 50 more that should be on the list, but, again.....that's my opinion.
All these dumb-ass "surveys" are the same. A pack of geniuses compiling a list of their own opinions. I don't agree with most of the songs.....However, a persons opinion and feelings are neither right or wrong.
Damn, this isn't exactly a science.

I think, as long as we are talking Black History Month, then why do we not have a Native American Month...tell me that? They were treated, and still are treated, as third rate citizens, and have been since their lands were taken from them

What about "Stand By Me', by Ben E. King, and "Unchained Melody" by the Righteous Brothers. These, and even "And the Heavens Cried" by Ronnie Savoy are far superior to the listed top 30

Why do these lists always leave out so many of the classic (and timeless) artists? Besides the ones that Jackie mentioned, how could Nat King Cole and Johnny Mathis not have made the top thirty? Not to mention one of the greatest love songs of all time by ANY artist: "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" by Roberta Flack.
