Let's Do It: Alt.Latino's Favorite Songs Of Love

Love: They say the feeling is the chemical equivalent of eating chocolate. I personally don't like chocolate, but have been known to enjoy a love song every now and then.

On this week's edition of Alt.Latino, we decided to get all lovey-dovey on you guys by sharing our favorite songs about love. A group from Venezuela finds that what was supposed to be a one-night stand has morphed into true love, some Chileans make promises they might not be able to keep, another Chilean finds out there's a very thin line between love and hate, and a fiery Mexicana pens an ode to discovering new love after heartbreak. This, and much more.

Of course, we didn't just limit ourselves to romantic love: We also have a beautiful ballad from a mother to an unborn son, while an unlikely band covers a song of love for your grandma.

What are your favorite songs about love? We want to hear from you. Listen to the show, check out the songs in their entirety and share your thoughts.
