My all-time favorite movie has always been “Sweet Home Alabama,” but my favorite song is always changing whenever new music is released. Right now, I would have to say my favorite love song is “Play it Again,” by Luke Bryan.
Julie Fogarty, junior, Central Catholic High School
I am a huge fan of romantic comedies, so choosing a favorite is difficult. I’d have to say it’s a tie between “27 Dresses” and “The Proposal.” As for love songs, there are just too many great ones to choose a favorite.
Carolyn Stevens, senior, Whitmore Charter High School
I do not really have a favorite love song, but my favorite romantic movie is “The Princess Bride.” Fencing, humor, twue wuv … what more can you ask for?
Ellen Zheng, sophomore, Central Valley High School
My favorite love song is probably “Love Story,” by Taylor Swift. It narrates the story of Romeo and Juliet but gives a much happier ending to the tale. It’s definitely more optimistic than the original story.
