One of the most beloved songs to come from The Beach Boys' many hits, "God Only Knows" made a splash when it was released on the band's 1966 album Pet Sounds. Sometimes the most simple songs, are the best. The record company who released the song in the U.S. wanted it as a single, but later changed their minds and it was put on the record's B-side. Why? If you can believe it, many thought the song would be banned because of the mention of God (and in some places, it was!)

Just the Way You Are, Bruno Mars

Sappy? Corny? Maybe. Romantic, sweet, and swoon-worthy? Definitely. Bruno Mars hit the jackpot with "Just the Way You Are" as his debut solo single in 2010. The song is simple, sweet, and has undoubtedly been played at countless weddings over the last 11 years. Bruno Mars later explained he was inspired by Joe Cocker's 'You Are So Beautiful' and Eric Clapton's 'Wonderful Tonight' - two other romantic hits we love.

What list would this be without Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You?" This song is one of those you just have to belt out in the shower, or sob to while eating ice cream on the couch. Did you know this hit was originally written and originally recorded by Dolly Parton in 1973? In 1992, Whitney Houston recorded her version of the film The Bodyguard. Once released, Houston's version spent an incredible four weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and holds the record for one of the best-selling singles of all time.[

What is any list of top hits without The Beatles? John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote "She Loves You" on a tour bus in Yorkshire, England. The song begins with the chorus, "She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah" instead of the original first verse, thanks to the quick thinking of the song's producer George Martin. This song is The Beatle's best-selling single in the United Kingdom and the top-selling single of any artist in the 1960s. This hit was recorded less than a week after Lennon and McCartney wrote it, and the rest- as they say, is history.
