Are these the cheesiest songs ever written?

After seeing Entertainment Weekly’s list of the best love songs ever, RedEye decided to compile a list of the 10 Corniest Love Songs on Earth. Noble intentions, but the list is flawed from the get-go, with Journey’s “Open Arms” in 10th place. No one is cornier than Journey, not even Michael Bolton (who’s sitting in seventh place) or Extreme (the most disingenuously named band in rock history, in fourth place). The choice for No. 1 is a tad suspect as well. Not that Jessica Simpson isn’t terrible, but she’s too new on the scene to head up a list like this. What about “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend”? Or “Stupid Cupid”? Or “Together Forever In Love”? Or hell, why not forget making a list and just beat up Neil Sedaka?
