PHer needs your musical help

Bloggers and bloglandia addicts, I need your help. I need you to please tap into your extensive music gland for a large project: The Love by the Numbers CD mix. If you know any love songs that either have numbers in the title or in the lyrics, please post them in my comments or email me. I know you can do it. Rock it!

On the List

The Book of Love
