How to Write a Love Song

I don’t much listen to this kind of pop/R&B/hip-hop-esque music, but it’d be hard to have gotten to 2011 without having heard a few of them, and some of what’s in this song is true for most pop/rock songs going back to the 50s (a period with which I’m all too familiar, thanks to my college singing group’s emphasis on doo-wop music — blech!)

This group from Australia has a laser beam focus on what’s silly about these songs. I was laughing out-loud most of the way through.
