Make a list of the great crooners who sing love songs and Tom Jones is likely to be somewhere near the top. He was for us when we sought out a guest DJ to share songs of romance and heartache for Valentine's Day.
In this edition of All Songs Considered, Tom Jones joins host Bob Boilen to talk about some of the songs Jones has loved most over the years, starting with the first he can remember singing to his grandmother as a child in Wales. He also includes gems from the raucous Jerry Lee Lewis and James Brown, the seductive Barry White, George Jones, Johnny Adams and, of course, Tom Jones himself.
