Yesterday, Grammy Award winner John Legend released a painfully beautiful music video for "All Of Me," the first single off his latest album "Love In The Future" (2013). The ballad was written for his wife, Chrissy Teigan, and the video ends with brief footage from their very recent wedding in Lake Como, Italy. Between the lyrics, black and white simplicity, and cuts from him on the keys to the newlyweds being adorable… everywhere, it's hard to keep the  tears from streaming. It's even more difficult not to envy the couple. 

But for all you "hopeful cynics," it's not just Legend and Teigan who have aired their undying love for us gawk at. So grab a box of tissues and take a look at these videos that will make you roll your eyes at every mushy couple…until you be come one. 

Robin Thicke - "Lost Without You" 

Before "Blurred Lines" and two-stepping behind Miley Cyrus's twerking, Robin Thicke was loving on his wife Paula Patton.

John Mayer - "Your Body Is A Wonderland" 

When John Mayer first started—prior to the Aniston, Swift and Perry heartbreaks—he was quite the charmer. 

Beyonce - "Halo" 

Mrs. Carter was busy locking eyes with Michael Ealy before Jay-Z put a ring on it. 

Ry Cuming - "Always Remember Me" 

Good luck getting this song and these sappy images out of your head on your next trip down to the Pier. 

Mary Lambert - "She Keeps Me Warm" 

This "Same Love" singer/song-writer recently released this new track. Her costar isn't her leading lady in real life, but they sure do make a convincing couple. There must be something about coffee shops. 

Bright Eyes - "First Day Of My Life" 

Worse than one starry-eyed couple, is several...rocking out in unison to the same tune.  

Alicia Keys - "If I Ain't Got You" 

This R&B classic featuring Method Man makes it hard not to add this track to your list of "potential wedding songs." 

Train - "Marry Me" 

Brace yourself. Don't worry, it gets (a little) better after the first 30 seconds. 

Rhye - "Open" 

Car rides in slow motion, hair blowing perfectly in the wind (until it gets caught in the window) and a fire. Barf.
