21. Alicia Keys, "Fallin'" (2002)
"Fallin'" is one of the most honest love songs out there.
It's a kind of relationship gospel, if you'll permit me.
Keys recognizes that love isn't love all the time — sometimes you can't stand being around the person, but other times you simply can't stand being away.
"Fallin'" is a song that you surrender to.
There's no point in putting up a fight.
It's sad, yes, but it's also ecstatic.
It's worth the fall.
