The list is not scored in any kind of order, merely listed as two people in love reminisced together…

In fact it started out as a top ten list, then a top twenty and we finally settled on the top thirty, although Debbie tried to cheat by combining “On Moonlight Bay” with “By the Light of the Silvery Moon” and I’ve just remembered “Dumb and Dumber” & “Ace Ventura”! 😀
