Smooth Breakfast with Gary King 6am - 10am
Smooth count down ten of the most romantic songs used in the movies. Is your favourite in there?
The pot, the clay, Demi Moore, Patrick Swayze... And the beautiful piano-lead melodies of the Righteous Brothers' famous ballad. Tearjerking scene that will ignite a spark in the hardest of hearts.
Leo's cherubic good looks, Kate's classical beauty, a doomed voyage and Celine Dion singing over the top. My Heart Will Go On was composed by James Horner, who sadly passed away in a plane crash this week.
Patrick Swayze again with Jennifer Grey in the film that launched a million dance classes... When those opening bars of the worldwide hit come in, you can't help but feel happy in your soul.
Hugh Grant was a bumbling English bookstore owner, Julia Roberts was the major Hollywood star who walked into his store and life... Amid a cast of the usual Richard Curtis good-natured humour, Elvis Costello's famous ballad She was given a new lease of life.
The second highest grossing film of 1991 starred Kevin Costner as the eponymous hero and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio as his Maid Marion. The theme song (Everything I Do) I Do It For You by Bryan Adams also became the longest ever number one in the UK, staying there for sixteen weeks!
Leo's dressed as a knight in shining armour, Clare Danes is in angel wings, and they follow one another through the water of an aquarium as Des'ree's beautiful Kissing You plays. Romantic movie perfection, before the doomed ending, of course.
Whitney when she was at her height playing a famous singer threatened by a stalker, and Kevin Costner again as her brooding but charming bodyguard. The theme tune, a cover of Dolly Parton's I Will Always Love You, is one of the most memorable and best known songs in the world. Listen to Houston belt out that voice!
Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal play friends who are determined to prove that men and women can have a platonic relationship in this romantic comedy that’s become synonymous with THAT lunch scene ("I'll have what she's having"). But the theme tune It Had To Be You gave an extra layer of heartwarming emotional truth to a very funny film.
Pretty Woman told the story of a hooker with a heart of gold, Julia Roberts, and her millionaire client Richard Gere. Theme tune It Must Have Been Love became a worldwide hit for Swedish rock-pop duo Roxette.
The Brooke Shields movie hasn't entered the archives of film legend, but the theme tune, record by a certain Lionel Richie and Diana Ross, became one of the biggest duets of the decade, spending nine weeks at No 1.
