Across all music genres — from pop to punk to musical theater and more — love is a common theme. And it’s no wonder — music has a way of reaching our emotions in ways that the spoken word can’t always hit on.
And with Valentine’s Day coming up, it’s the perfect time to break out the cheesy love songs! Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite YouTube music videos that capture the essence of the holiday. Get inspired with these six perfectly pitched pleas for love…
