Queen aren't exactly the first band you think of when it comes to romance, but their 1975 album Night at the Opera contained one of classic rock's greatest love songs. "You're My Best Friend" is built around the simple, enduring premise that a partner for life should not only be one's lover, but their closest confidante as well.

Bassist John Deacon wrote the song, and Queen's seemingly simple (but deceptively complex) recording made it a classic. But the song's video features the band performing the tune in a room softly lit by a multitude of flickering candles. The result is like having Queen play the track at your cozy romantic Valentine's Day dinner.
