- "Love Has No Pride" by Bonnie Raitt. This tune is about a woman who just can't get enough of bad treatment and keeps returning again for more of the same.
- "Shot to the Heart" by Lil' Wayne and Rick Ross. The chorus by Lil' Wayne states "Since I lost you, I'm lost, too" and the rest of the song is a plea to get back together.

With this melody, this top ten best song about wanting to get back together again never gets old.
- "Still the One" by Orleans. The ultimate elevator or grocery store tune. The singer leaves and continues to think about the laughing, fun and love that the two had together. Even though the first verse claims "Sometimes I never want to see you again," and the singer heads out when the winter came, the verse claims that the singer comes back to a love that's "going gold" as the two grow old. Cheesy, but nice at the same time.
- "You Were On My Mind" by the We Five. "I got wounds to bind" is one of the lyrics from this rhythm classics from a 1960s group. The harmony is catchy and the chorus reminds the listener that the person weighs heavy on the mind.
- "I Want You Back" by the Jackson Five, aka the Jackson 5. When the young Michael Jackson sings, "Baby give me one more chance," the dance moves increase and the chorus repeats over again, "I want you back."
- "Call Me (Come Back Home)" by Al Green. This song from the soul master Al Green has a chorus that simply repeats "Call me, come back home." Green is willing to take her back no matter what happened. The most interesting line is the unique rhyme in "if you find you's a long way from home; and if somebody's doing you wrong; just call me baby; come back home."
