Heaven I don't mind, but anything released by Bryan Adams starting with "Everything I Do" is just crap. He used to be able to rock, then he found a formula for selling more records. Just flip to your town's easy listening station-there he is!
A few more of these that you're ashamed to listen to except in the car by yourself:
"Here I Am" - Air Supply "Can't Fight This Feeling" - REO Speedwagon "I Swear" All-4-One "The Shape Of My Heart" - Backstreet Boys
edit: may I humbly suggest some brave soul start the companion thread "best heart-wrenching love songs ever"?

Extreme, man! Geez! It's Extreme!! Have you forgotten all your one-hit-album bands already??
With that said, allow me to add a few of my own: "Keep On Loving You" - REO Speedwagon "To Be With You" - Mr. Big "The Power Of Love" - Huey Lewis & The News "Stuck With You" - Huey Lewis & The News "It's All Coming Back To Me Now" - Celine Dion. I remember the first time I heard this song... I thought Meatloaf had made "I Would Do Anything For Love, Part II." And that reminds me... "I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)" - Meatloaf
"Thanks RageRockrr! You're the coolest!" - Excalibur05, March 10, 2002. "And the natives were chanting, ‘Hoya! Hoya! Me no sono’... which means, ‘Turn down! Turn down! Me want soda!’" "The neighbors complained. They moved. The new neighbors complained. It was almost like being on tour, George!" Captain Lou Albano, hitting 101 on the Unintentional Comedy Scale, right here.
WOKKA WOKKA WOKKA, PUNK!!
You are Fozzie! Wokka Wokka! You love to make lame jokes. Your sense of humor might be a bit off, but you're a great friend and can always be counted on..
Rage...thanks man..i think i need a couple of more smacks..how could i forget Extreme, i mean i knew it was from the Pornograffiti album and that Uno Betancourt played with them but i just couldn't come up with the name...damn this age...
In the meanwhile a few more i thought of: Az Yet - "Last night"...great strip club song btw Cheap Trick - "The flame" Forigner - "I've been waitingfor a girl like you" oh oh...Europe - "Carrie"...this gotta be one of the cheesiest ever.
I wish this also included Latin singers because they f'n rule the cheesy love ballad market.
Coming home from a Padres game last Friday night, we were walking through the far end of our complex when we passed a house with the stereo blasting like a 15 year old when Mom and Dad were out... and it was playing...
Can't fight this feeling...
...at about volume 9 out of 10. It was scary.
It was like the inhabitants there were marking their territory with sound and proclaiming "Old people sex taking place here!"
(edited by Guru Zim on 18.6.02 1321) I love it when a plan comes together
Ah yes - the "disembodied souls after a plane crash" video. I guess it was supposed to be romantic since he called his girlfriend as the plane was going down. I can't recall seeing that video much after September 11th, for some reason...
Might I also suggest "I Love You" by Climax Blues Band and "The Promise" by When In Rome? I remember those from a disc of "Classic Love Songs" and thought that they'd fit this category well.
I'm going twenty-four hours a day...I can't seem to stop - "Turn Up The Radio", Autograph
Ah yes, Climax Blues Band. When I was...a younger man (14 or so)...I hadn't a care...and this girl named Katie used to call me all the time, and that was ALWAYS the song playing in the background on her tape player. Talk about your subtle hints...
Years later as a bucking young DJ, a couple of people including Katie stop by the radio station and we're hanging out talking about songs, and I said "HERE'S Katie's song!" And I played it. She swelled up into tears and made me make her a tape.
Oh...I'll throw in Journey's "Faithfully", which was me and Rachel's song. And Survivor's "The Search Is Over", which was me and Shelly's song...Then I kinda ran out of girlfriends who even CARED about having "songs"...
gonna build a giant drill and bore straight into hell releasing ancient demons from their sleep-forever spell so they can walk upon the earth and get recituated and run the diet pill pyramid that MC Pee Pants has created
Originally posted by zhixelI'm slightly surprised noone has mentioned Lovesong by The Cure.
While it is a love song and The Cure are undeniably wimpy, it just ain't cheesy.
To put "Lovesong" within 100 miles of this thread is sacrilege. "Lovesong" is neither cheesy nor wimpy, but is rather one of the best rock love songs EVER! I will accept no argument on this point!!! ;)

Anyone who watched MuchMusic in Canada through the 80s remembers the constant appearances of Neil, Nick and Paul in the live environment. I've seen Neil Finn in concert numerous times, and I always held out hope for one reunion tour.
