thank you thank you ... it took me almost 2 days and I fell in love again while doing it! The variety of ways artists have sung "I Love You" over the ages has brought smiles to the faces of the people I love and a bop in their step in my home for 2 solid days :O)

I hope everyone enjoys this list as much as I enjoyed pulling it together!

I like Yutaka's song too, I was surprised by his voice. He was a very popular artist in Japan while he was alive. Apparently many Japanese artists have covered his song "I Love You", as well Debbie Gibson's "I Lve You" is a cover of his song in English, which is nice; Debbie's music video can be found here @
