Default Suggestions for a romantic compilation?

I'm trying to "introduce" the music of the Beatles to my girlfriend, because she really doesn't know a lot about them, and since she is a fan of love songs, I thought of making a compilation of the best Beatles romantic tracks.
There are some obvious choices, like In My Life, Yesterday or Something, but I'd like to read your suggestions! Thanks in advance!

Excellent idea to introduce her to the Beatles. Here's some songs that should win her over:

I Need You
Here, There And Everywhere
And I Love Her
If I Fell
Every Little Thing
I Will
P.S. I Love You
I'll Get You

How about "I Want You (She's So Heavy)"...



bearkat's suggestions are excellent. Also consider:

"Ask Me Why"
"Thank You Girl"
"I Feel Fine"
"Michelle" (would be extra handy if her name was Michelle)
"It's All Too Much" (if she has blonde hair and blue eyes, this song will work nicely)

Great suggestions!!

I think Here Comes the Sun is romantic. And girls love that one.

Default i'll be back

I'll be back is such a great song but if you just read the lyrics the guy is a mess...he just won't give up and almost has a stalker attitude...he is NEVER going to get her...but he'll be back..lyrics are actually funny. but the melody should ring your girlfriend in.

I Don't Want to spoil the party
every little thing
here there and everywhere
for no one
i'll follow the sun
you've got to hide your love away
she's a woman
i feel fine
don't let me down
you've really got a hold on me
long long long (its a haunting melody)

Capitol did a 2 record set called "Love Songs". It has a few really dumb picks, but most of them are great and so it's worth a look:

Side 1
1 Yesterday
2 I'll Follow the Sun
3 I Need You
4 Girl
5 In My Life
6 Words of Love
7 Here There and Everywhere

Side 2
1 Something
2 And I Love Her
3 If I Fell
4 I'll Get You
5 Tell Me What You See
6 Yes It Is

Side 3
1 Michelle
2 It's Only Love
3 You're Going to Lose That Girl
4 Every Little Thing
5 For No One
6 She's Leaving Home

Side 4
1 The Long and Winding Road
2 This Boy
3 Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)
4 You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
5 I Will
6 P.S. I Love You
