    • Ross: I have to say "Tupelo Honey" by Van Morrison.
      Rachel: No way! The most romantic song ever was "The Way We Were."
      Phoebe: Uh, see I think the one that Elton John wrote for, um, that guy on Who's The Boss?
      Rachel: What song was that, Pheebs?
      Phoebe: (Singing) Hold me close, young Tony Danza.

      Van Morrison is a singer-songwriter from northern Ireland. "Tupelo Honey" is a popular song from his 1971 album, Tupelo Honey.

      "The Way We Were" is the title song to the 1973 movie The Way We Were, starring Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford.

      This is a play on Elton John's song "Tiny Dancer." The actual lyrics are "Hold me closer tiny dancer." However, Phoebe confuses this with Who's the Boss?, a television sitcom starring Tony Danza, an American actor.
