* Music/TheyMightBeGiants' "Pet Name" musically sounds like this, except that if you listen to the lyrics, you'll realize it's a song about a couple who are utterly sick of each other but mask it behind a sentimental facade. They do, however, have one straightforward example: "Another First Kiss." They themselves describe it as pretty much the only straight love song they've ever done, but in their typical style, it's a ([[WordOfGod their words]]) "Screw that" to the idea that you need to be young to be in love and instead depicts a [[HappilyMarried happy couple with history.]]

Added DiffLines:

* When Music/TheAquabats do silly love songs, the emphasis is usually on "silly", from the ska-punk love ballad "Red Sweater!" ("[[DamnedByFaintPraise You're not fat, you don't smell bad]] / You're always smiling, never sad") to the pop-sounding "Lovers of Loving Love!" to the [[MundaneMadeAwesome mock-epic]] "The Legend is True!"

* Creator/MitchBenn has written a few of these, as well as {{Anti Love Song}}s. "Disgustingly in Love" is positive for the couple, if not [[SickeninglySweethearts anyone around them]]; "My Girlfriend is an Alien" has the singer conclude that he doesn't mind; and "One of These Days" is so sincere it's barely funny at all.
