Overview

One of the world�s most popular singers, Julio Iglesias serves up some of his most beloved performances on this must-have collection. The focus is on English-language hits, as the lead-off track -- �To All the Girls I�ve Loved Before,� the well-loved duet with Willie Nelson -� makes abundantly clear. No matter the language he sings in, Iglesias specializes in bringing Latin charm to any song; every word is laced with heart-on-sleeve emotion. It�s this expressiveness and desire to communicate through the sensuality of music that endears the heartthrob to his many international fans. For them, whether Iglesias is crooning a time-honored standard or a pop hit, nobody does it better.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
This has 16 tracks from the mid-'80s to the late '90s, but like other installments in Sony's Love Songs series, it's not synonymous with a greatest-hits compilation. Instead, it's just an assortment of various songs from the catalog of one of the most popular romantic vocalists of the late-20th century, though there are of course a whole lot more than 16 "love songs" in the Iglesias discography. These particular ones seem to have been selected with an eye toward the North American market, as all are in English, and the program's heavy on covers of era-spanning pop standards: "Mona Lisa," "Can't Help Falling in Love," "When I Fall in Love," "As Time Goes By," the Willie Nelson-penned "Crazy" (popularized by Patsy Cline), Don McLean's "Vincent (Starry Starry Night)," the Beatles' "And I Love Her," Morris Albert's "Feelings," Jacques Brel and Rod McKuen's "If You Go Away." It does have some of his big American hits in "To All the Girls I've Loved Before" (a duet with Willie Nelson) and "Moonlight Love," yet it's missing his smash duet with Diana Ross, "All of You." Overall, it's representative of the glossily produced, sentimental adult contemporary pop for which the singer's most known to much of the English-speaking audience.

this love song collection cd is the one thing that everyone should have. it has a lot of good moods , and you will really fall in love if are 18 or 81 upon listening to his collections. julio iglesias have traveled around the globe , in different cities and countries to spread love through his great and wonderful songs. and also winning the hearts of beautiful women. his song " to all the girls i love before " reminds me of my younger years. if i will write a book about myself ,i can title this book like his song.even if i don't look like as good as him i have love a lot of women ,too
