Long Tall Sally - Beatles
Who Are You - The Who (or as I like to think of it Who The F*k Are You)
The old joke about Bono has him saying 'every time I click my fingers a child dies'' , to which the audience member replies 'stop doing it then'. I am not a fan.

Ohne Dich (Without You) - Rammstein
Forever In Blue Jeans - Neil Diamond
Have not got any Leonard Cohen stuff. I've pretty much got a lot of the Essential series from bands I like that would never buy their albums.
Generally much prefer to listen to the best hits from a band or artist if possible. That is of coarse I like them but don't care if I have any of their music to collect.
So the Essential series suits me quite a lot!... So I might check this album out!....
The Essential LC is a comprehensive set. It is all you need, given that it contains classics like Hallelujah, Suzanne, So Long Marianne, Democracy, The Future and First We Take Manhattan. The only other song I have by him is Memories from the Death Of A Ladies' Man album.
He was a great songwriter, but for me his records are marred by an over-reliance on female backing singers and the word 'beauty'. ( one example being 'Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya' - Hallelujah).
The Moon Touches Your Shoulder - Porcupine Tree
Million Dollar Riff - Skyhooks
Maggie's Farm - Bob Dylan
Elvis Has Just Left The Building - Frank Zappa
Ain't That Lovin' You Baby - Elvis Presley
Tonight WIll Last Forever - Sherbet
This is also much appreciated by me, G64.

Regarding LOC, which is my second favourite Genesis song, I've always found the 'my generation will put it right' line to be pure irony. They can't, and they know it. If there is anything cheesy about it I would say the middle eight (I remember long ago,etc), which of course occurs just before 'I won't be coming home tonight'.
Achy Breaky Heart has to be the cheesiest song of all time. Hands down.
A lot of country songs seem to be cheesy, down to the titles. There is a song called Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off, which I have never heard, and never want to hear (unless it's supposed to be 'funny' in the way that I said Paradise By The Dashboard Light is funny).
I agree that schmaltz applies more to stuff like Barry Manilow and Celine Dion. The only Manilow song I like, Copacobana (At The Copa) is cheesy, I guess.
As For Another Day In Paradise, this song is so divisive in many ways. I don't find it cheesy; the title for me goes to You Can't Hurry Love. I never liked the Supremes.
Icarus Ascending - SH
