Love songs. Every couple has a song that is ‘their’ song. People walk down the aisle to them. People listen to them crying their eyes out when it is Game Over time in their relationship. They are the backdrops to our lives.
The best love songs are undoubtedly the cheesy ones. They are the ones that are etched on our brain for eternity. They also achieve a cult like status and are lampooned in movies, television and even computer games. They frequently end up as karaoke favourites.
I have gathered together for you a list of what I think are the cheesiest love songs of all time. I had a hard time ranking them because each of them, in their special cheesy way, deserves to be the number one Cheese Monger. Feast on my delights!
10. Reunited – Peaches and Herb
I sat here starin’ at the same old wall
Came back to life when I just heard your call
I wished I could climb right through the telephone line
And give you what you want so you would still be mine
Ultimate cheesy soul ballad about reuniting with an old flame, Reunited was a huge hit on both sides of the pond – topping the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks in 1979 and it gained Gold Record status in the UK. Often played by radios as part of their late night love songs segment, Reunited has a cheese mongering streak about it but I quite enjoy it as I like soul music and the vocals are very good.
