I was a 17-year-old high school student. I worked at a video store whose main revenue came from VHS rentals. Dinosaurs roamed the earth, and they owned VCRs -- obviously.
There was this girl I worked with. She was 22, maybe 23. She was older than I. She knew about Poe and she talked about saving the world. She was more grown-up than I. She was silly and warm in a way that I could only wish for, and my heart beated to a newfound rhthym when in her presence.
One night after we worked together I was driving home, and I played a song on my CD player. It was "Only in Dreams" by Weezer (yeah, I know.. lol).
The bass guitar was plucked rythmically -- it was like the guitar and my palpitations were purposefully harmonizing. I was in love, and holy fuck, I just found *the* song that could put that love into words.
My question: what cheesy (or non-cheesy? because we all think they're non-cheesy, right?) song about love first spoke to you on a DEEP level? How did it make you feel?

Maybe this one:
Lol sorry to everyone clicking on this video with great expectations but then noticing it's in German. It's basically a girl singing about a letter she would write to her crush (who passed away) confessing her feelings. But because he passed away she can't give it to him anymore and so she's singing she'll write it and give it to him when they meet again in the after life. It's very tragic haha :P0

The Beatles In My Life.
When I was about 21 or so, a friend of mine was HEAVILY into the Beatles. I never liked them, which attests to the power of this song. Any rate, he pointed our how so many love songs are pretty much just variations of "Ooh! I love you baby" over and over but with no examples to back up the lyrics. This song truly has something to say beyond I love you. It speaks of how no one or nothing is as valuable and meaningful to the singer as this love. For the past five years, I haven't been able to hear it without crying. :(
Then there's this this song, True by Spandau Ballet.
The line, "head over heels when toe to toe" spoke to me very deeply because I danced to it with my then girlfriend. The whole romance of being swept away in the moment when you are holding one another and gazing longingly into each other's eyes is overwhelming. Truly the sound of our souls. My wife felt the same thing. Although we first slow danced to this with other people, when we discovered it was a song which led us to both understand being so completely disarmed and vulnerable when in love, it became our song. We danced to it at our wedding. Alas, it brings tears to my eyes now.
