I have some really random songs that remind me of TLM but, here we go:
"Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" - I love this song and it's a bittersweet version of Ariel and Eric.
"Angelina"- This is a Harry Belafonte song that I have a whole TLM music video envisioned for. Sebastian sings the song on the beach as Ariel sees Eric's ship coming in and we watch as Ariel runs through the kingdom, disrupting things but yet still being adorable as she makes her way to the docks to greet him.
Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)- I just think this song perfectly describes Eric's feelings about Ariel! Plus this song is just so much fun!
I feel like there are more than that, but for now, that's my list.
Jess, I LOVE Vienna Teng. I never thought of pairing those songs with TLM, but I can see it now!
The opening lyrics of Marie's Wedding make me think of Ariel dancing with Eric. It has nothing to do with TLM (I'd be a little concerned if Eric's kingdom feasted on herring) but gawd, it's catchy. I had it stuck in my head for at least a week. Step, we gaily and we go...
Noooo! Melissa, you're getting me re-addicted to that fanvid! -watches-
Celtic Woman's "Send Me A Song" conjures images of Ariel and Eric for me. It's pretty fitting if Ariel sang this to Mel, too!
I know I mentioned Trading Yesterday, but only a couple of their songs are actually fanvideos! This song seems perfect for our favorite couple:
"She is the Sunlight"
She lives in a daydream...
I am ADDICTED to this band. They're made of awesome, as is this fanvideo:
"Shattered". Best Trading Yesterday song ever. You haven't lived until you've watched this--I was so inspired that it's practically my fanfic's theme song. XD The actual song is longer, but the meaning remains.
If you like Trading Yesterday (and really, what's not to like?), try Tenth Avenue North:
I want to say "Beloved" is Ariel/Eric-y, but it's a pretty generic Christian love song, so it fits with pretty much anything. Not to say it's an unoriginal song, but you could tie it to a lot of things.
"Beautiful" - Trading Yesterday I don't like this song/vid as much as the "Shattered" one, but this band is so epic that it's worth linking anyway.
And onto the subject of Celtic Woman, my fangirlishness obligates me to link to "Someday":
Ariel's perpetual optimism just oozes from this (Alan Menken!) song.
And another one! I know I mentioned there was a vid to this somewhere, and...hmm... Oh! Here it is.
"Annie's Song" - John Denver Hick that I am, I love this man. He was a huge environmentalist and my mother (country bumpkin to the core) loves him.

All of the songs are beautiful, and I really like "Beautiful" as well. I can't decide between that one and "Shattered"! I anticipate my iTunes library expanding very soon XD. Is it true that "Someday" was supposed to be in Hunchback of Notre Dame? The instrumental sounds exactly like parts of the score in the movie.
I'm not that much of a folk person, but "Annie's Song" was wonderful!
Hate to burst your bubble, but Trading Yesterday is dead. They broke up in 2006 or so. The good news is that one of the band members was kind enough to offer their songs online since no one will be able to buy them. Here (More than This and The Beauty and the Tragedy): www.albumbuzz.com/hodges.html
Yes, "Someday" was a cut song from HoND. To be honest I don't really like Heidi's demo, but since it was only a demo, meh. The staging wasn't too good either. "God Help The Outcasts" was a much better fit, and Heidi rocks in it. Love the key change at the beginning, though.
I can't believe I haven't posted this one yet. I was driving home from the Audubon Society and this played on the radio, and I was reminded! I listen to the country station ([/dork]), but this isn't too ear-piercing for general audiences. (:
