By nature, a very large number of award bait songs epitomise narm charm — sparkly synth, Tastes Like Diabetes lyrics, over-the-top vocal histrionics — and yet, everyone comes back for more. And it's not like this only happened in the 80s and 90s. Case in point is "Love Lives", a solo effort by Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, for the Live-Action Adaptation of Space Battleship Yamato (2010).
I looked at you, you looked at me,
I knew it then, but you couldn't see it,
And now you've come around.
I walk away, you stay behind,
But I've got the memories to remind me,
Of how you used to...
Hold me so tight, be by my side,
And make it alright...
