10 Of The Cheesiest Love Songs Of All Time

What is life without music? And what is love without music, for that matter? Love songs play a backdrop to relationships. Whether it was the song that was playing during your first date, or the song to which you first kissed each other, love songs play a major role in relationships. They may be from any genre of music, but love songs are love songs. But the best kind are the cheesy ones.

So in ode to the cheesy love songs that play such an important role in our love lives, here’s a list of such love songs that bag the prize for being the cheesiest of them all!

1. I Knew I Loved You – Savage Garden

Savage Garden is the epitome of love in the 90s. Whether or not you believe in forever love, this song will make you want to believe in it. Or so you’re lead to believe. How can you know your love when you haven’t even me them?!

Cheesy lyrics:

I knew I loved you before I met you

I think I dreamed you into life

I knew I loved you before I met you

I have been waiting all my life

2. Chasing Cars – Snow Patrol

You might think what does chasing cars have to do with love, but when the guy is asking nothing more than to lie with him and forget the world, it’s the best, ain’t it? Swoon! Nice to live in a bubble with your lover, eh? 😛

Cheesy lyrics:

If I lay here

If I just lay here

Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

3. These Words – Natasha Bedingfield

Although this song is supposedly about Bedingfield’s brother, you just can’t help but associate it with your lover. The repeated proclamations of love are a different level of cheesy!

Cheesy lyrics:

These words are my own

From my heart flow

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you

There’s not other way

To better say

I love you, I love you…

4. Heaven – Bryan Adams

Hard to associate cheesiness with Bryan Adams, no? But this one is a classic love song that is cheesy as hell… er… heaven! 😛

Cheesy lyrics:

And baby, you’re all that I want

When you’re lyin’ here in my arms

I’m findin’ it hard to believe

We’re in heaven

5. Can’t Fight This Feeling – REO Speedwagon

A guy who has fallen in love with a friend but can’t bring himself to express his love. Cue waving the lighter in a darkened karaoke bar as your friend drunkenly sings this cheesy song!

Cheesy lyrics:

I can’t fight this feeling any longer

And yet I’m still afraid to let if flow

What started out as friendship, has grown stronger

I only wish I had the strength to let it show

I tell myself that I can’t hold out forever

I said there is no reason for my fear

Cause I feel so secure when we’re together

You give my life direction

You make everything so clear

6. I Just Called To Say I Love You – Stevie Wonder

Ah! How can any list be complete without this song from the 1984 movie The Woman in Red? It is so cheesy, that even its success can’t diminish its cheese factor. Listen at your own peril!

Cheesy lyrics:

No April rain

No flowers bloom

No wedding Saturday within the month of June

But what it is, is something true

Made up of these three words that I must say to you


I just called to say I love you

I just called to say how much I care

I just called to say I love you

And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

7. Hello – Lionel Richie

Another cheesy love song, another ballad. Sigh. I guess the video is as cheesy as the song, where a blind art student makes a sculpture of his head. No, seriously. Watch it here.

Cheesy lyrics:

I’ve been alone with you

Inside my mind

And in my dreams I’ve kissed your lips

A thousand times

I sometimes see you

Pass outside my door


Is it me you’re looking for?

I can see it in your eyes

I can see it in your smile

You’re all I’ve ever wanted

And my arms are open wide

‘cause you know just what to say

And you know just what to do

And I want to tell you so much

I love you

8. All Out Of Love – Air Supply

This is one of the cheesiest of all love songs I’ve EVER listened to! No, I’m not kidding. Just listen to the lyrics and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Cheesy lyrics:

I’m all out of love, I’m so lost without you

I know you were right, believing for so long

I’m all out of love, what am I without you

I can’t be too late to say that I was so wrong

9. The Lady In Red – Chris de Burgh

This seems like something straight out of an M&B romance – that’s how cheesy it is.

Cheesy lyrics:

I’ve never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight,

I’ve never seen you shine so bright,

I’ve never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance,

They’re looking for a little romance, given half a chance,

And I have never seen that dress you’re wearing,

Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes,

I have been blind

10. Everywhere – Michelle Branch

Huh. If you saw your love interest everywhere, that’s just one step away from stalker-land, no? 😛

Cheesy lyrics:

Turn it inside out so I can see

The part of you that’s drifting over me

And when I wake you’re, you’re never there

But when I sleep you’re, you’re everywhere

You’re everywhere
