You may be right.

The aforementioned In The Sky is cheesy.

Secondary Waltz is pretty cheesy, although I do like it.

So, the title sounds cheesy as hell, but fortunately MK usually has a low cheese count so it should be ok :)

Yes, the cheesiness of it exactly is telling me that this might be a humorous song or something.

Interesting topic, what is the cheesiest song MK has released?

I really struggle to listen to In the Sky. Such a cheesy song and then the sax comes in to drop another huge dollop of fromage on it.

If we discuss collaborations then Voices That Care is by far the cheesiest. That might be the cheesiest record ever released.
cheesiest album is KTGC with a friggin distance....

I have the advantage of being a non-native English speaker, so "In The Sky" works for me as I can ignore the words, and it's not that cheesy to me.

Dream Of The Drowned Submariner is a bit cheesy thanks to this trash delay effect on vocals taken straight from some pop singer next door.

Ah, beat me to it!

I'll raise you:

All That Matters
Whoop De Doo
This Is Us
True Love Will Never Fade
Monteleone
Wherever I Go

and probably some from Privateering I can't recall.

As a father I don't find All That Matters cheesy, quite the opposite.

As someone who has been dumped lots of times I don't find Whoop De Doo cheesy either. It might just be my favourite MK solo song.

Don't Crash the Ambulance is pretty cheesy, and makes no sense.

and probably some from Privateering I can't recall.

I would argue about most of these! All That Matters is an old-time waltz and almost like a lullaby (I once got a request to teach this song to a man who wanted to sing it for his newborn daughter), so it's cheesy by definition, and not by choice. The same story with Wherever I Go, I think.

Whoop De Doo is a sarcastic song with contrasting laidback music and sad melancholic lyrics. Personally, I'm so into the character that I don't think about the cheesiness of it at all.

True Love Will Never Fade on the surface is the cheesiest song on Earth, I mean, look at the title! But upon closer inspection, you realize how this tattoo might symbolize something like Mark's affection for guitars or music that will never fade, something among those lines. And again, with stellar guitar work on this song, you almost stop thinking about cheesiness.

Monteleone, I already discussed that one. Without knowing the story, about Monteleone, and how guitars are built, the song doesn't make sense.

Anyway, many of Mark's songs ask for a serious suspension of disbelief to accept or rethink the cheesiness of it. It might be not what you think it is is what I'm saying.

Our Shangri La wins this contest for me. The cheese of all cheeses.
...Well, he's a big star now but I've been a fan of his for years. The way he sings and plays guitar still bring me to tears...

Sorry but I just need to hear some of the lines he uses in most of these songs and I'm reaching for the sick bucket! 

Maybe I preferred his writing when he was a miserable sod like me!  ;D

I love cheese. In Spain we have fantastic cheese, so that's perfect for me.

Another advantage of being non native English speaker, that expression has no meaning for me.
You might get lucky, now and then

Mark would often joke about it during the Hillbillies shows before Your Own Sweet Way calling the Strat the "cheese machine" or such like.  I assumed he was referring to his copious use of the whammy bar.

I love The Urban Dictionary for definitions like this, but people disagree so I think they're stumped here.  My definition would be something that uses a lot of clichés and/or is overly sentimental.

That's a good way to put it. By the way, speaking of overly sentimental, why has nobody mentioned Your Latest Trick yet? Sax is like THE king of cheese instruments. This song sounds like an answer to Careless Whisper, which is the king of cheesy songs.
