Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs — including Paul McCartney and Wings, whose 1976 silly love song “Silly Love Songs” celebrates the 40th anniversary of its release this Friday.

In honor of four decades of the beloved track (and because, while you’d think that people would have had enough of silly love songs, we’re looking around us and seeing it isn’t so), we have compiled 19 of the corniest, cheesiest, sappiest, wishy-washiest, all-around silliest romantic ballads, to make you roll your eyes and groan while your heart secretly melts at the same time.

Check out our picks below, and use the arrows to vote the schmaltziest of these cornball tunes to the top of this truly silly playlist.
