Used in the official soundtrack to the movie Shrek, this is a quirky, upbeat tune with sweet lyrics and a melody that will leave a smile on your face
Head over Feet – Alanis Morrisette
Although well-known for her often cynical and world-weary songs, this is a wonderful romantic love song that doesn’t overdo it on the sentiment – a perfect choice for couples who prefer a less lovey-dovey romantic song.

Full of peppy lyrics and a wonderfully toe-tapping tune, pop this cheerful song by The Turtles on your mp3 player and you and your loved one will be dancing round the kitchen table in no time.
