Gavin Degraw Week – Day 2

In my quest to bring y’all interesting stuff about Gavin Degraw this week, I found a link to Gavin Degraw’s 17 Most Romantic Songs from, of course, Seventeen magazine.

The list:
I’ve Been Loving You Too Long – Otis Redding
Cupid – Sam Cooke
The Tracks of My Tears – Smokey Robinson
Last Goodbye – Jeff Buckley
A Song for You – Leon Russell
All I Could Do Was Cry – Etta James
Angel Eyes – John Hiatt
True Companion – Marc Cohn
That Where It’s At – Sam Cooke
That’s How Strong My Love Is – Otis Redding

Aaah, Sam Cooke. I have to agree. But I think I would have chosen “You Send Me.” Check this out:

For your consideration: “Try a Little Tenderness” ala Ducky.

And finally, here’s Gavin D performing “Tracks of My Tears” on Last Call With Carson Daly:

    I don’t know! Ducky was *clearly* the superior man in that scenario. That might have been the exact moment that Molly Ringwald was off my list. Seriously. EVERYONE knows Ducky is the better choice.
