Schmaltzy Songs You Like..

Recommended Posts

"Schmaltzy" is Yiddish for REALLY Really Sweet...and/or/sometimes tear-jerky..................

movies...songs...books...Overly romantic..( eg. Movie.."Love Story"...anything based on.........

a Nicholas Sparks book..songs like .."Feelings" or "Honey" or "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye")...

Often..far from "Critic-Proof"....and admitting you like one of these may cause chuckles...at best....derision

at worst... at cocktail parties...BUT hopefully no derision

at EC.Com..(though I suppose supressed chuckling IS acceptable :rolleyes: ) .

I was lucky enough to get to know Bobby Vee..a little...and this tune is sweet...(IMHO)..AND I love...that ...like the kind of "Teen" songs that "Grease" lampooned.......

It references a more innocent time..."goin' steady"...and the ultra-importance of the charms on a charm bracelet...So here's my entry...!!

I think this also falls under the guilty pleasures category....

 

One of my my songs in this category is by fellow Vandy girl, Amy Grant!

Not every song from our musical heroes can be a masterpiece, as you said in the Worst Beach Boy Song thread.

 

 

I will go one further and not name the Beach Boys song that-must-not-be-named....the one that starts with a K.

 

I have already said too much.   

 

I know that it is a guilty pleasure for some, and it sure ranks high on the Schmaltz-O-Meter.

 

Long live schmaltz!

I can't seem to get enough of schmalzy!  I liked Player and apparently they are still playing! They weren't too far from me in 2013!
