Love Tristan & Isolde
When I was a teenager and was a member in good standing of the Columbia Record Club, I ordered an album by the Mystic Moods Orchestra named "One Stormy Night" and one of the tracks was the theme from Tristan & Isolde. Spent hours in my room listening to this album :)

Bogart and Bacall are yet another pair of lovers mentioned in a Suzanne Vega song :D

Una Stubbs and Jon Pertwee in Worzel Gummidge. Although perhaps I should have saved this for W since it was really old Worzel who had the hots for Aunt Sally and not vice versa!

Excellent choice, Furryfeet (::)

Xerxes I. At the start of Handel's opera about him, he sings this, which is quite romantic:

"Tender and beautiful fronds
of my beloved plane tree,
let Fate smile upon you.
May thunder, lightning, and storms
never disturb your dear peace,
nor may you by blowing winds be profaned.

Never was a shade
of any plant
dearer and more lovely,
or more sweet."

Plus, his name has x in it twice, which means double points for me, m'wah hah ha 8-) 8-)
