TakeLessons Shares 5 Cheesy Love Songs in Time for Valentine's Day
TakeLessons, the nation's fastest growing music lessons provider, stirs up the Valentine's Day pot with a list of 5 cheesy love songs.
San Diego, CA (I-Newswire) February 15, 2012 - Ah, Valentine’s Day. Love is in the air, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the dinner reservations are set.
Music has a special way of evoking emotion, so it’s no wonder there are so many love songs out there. And anti-love songs. And depending on relationship status, these songs may elicit anything from a swoon to a cringe. TakeLessons (http://takelessons.com), the nation's fastest growing music lessons provider, got into the Valentine's Day spirit today by posting a list of the 5 cheesiest love songs, as originally published by the International Business Times.
The following is an excerpt from the list:
"1. Eric Clapton – “Wonderful Tonight” (1977)
It may be a classic love song from the late 70s, but “Wonderful Tonight” is cheesy and overplayed. Clapton originally wrote the song about Pattie Boyd while waiting for her to get ready to attend Paul and Linda McCartney’s annual Buddy Holly Party. Since Clapton first thought of the song, it has been played endlessly in films and romantic scenes. “Wonderful Tonight” wins our worst love song award for being too overplayed.
2. ‘N Sync – “(God Must Have Spent) A little More Time on You” (1997)
Almost every love song made by a boy band could qualify as a terrible love song, but “(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time on You” is especially painful. The song was released on ‘N Sync’s self-titled debut album in 1997. While the song may have made teens swoon in the 90s, today the song is certainly cringe-worthy. “(God Must Have Spent) A Little More Time on You” wins our award for worst love song from a boy band.
3. The Police – “Every Breath You Take” (1983)
Best stalker song ever. Enough said.
4. Bryan Adams – “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You” (1991)
“(Everything I Do) I Do It for You” was enormously popular in the U.S. and the UK. The power ballad topped the charts in 30 countries and became one of the best-selling singles of all time. Despite its popularity, “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You” has been overplayed. Steer clear of the song this Valentine’s Day.
5. Savage Garden – “Truly Madly Deeply” (1997)
“Truly Madly Deeply,” produced by Australian-duo Savage Garden is instantly painful and manages to get worse. A close contender for worst love song by a boy band in the 90s, “Truly Madly Deeply” wins the award for worst love song lyrics… by far."
