The Inherent Tackiness of Sunsets (and certain rock bands)

Aren't all sunsets just a little tacky? But we like them anyway, and are moved by them regardless of how cynical we've become. I equate sunsets to bands like the Eagles, or the BeeGees, or the band America. Easy to make fun of out of context, hard to dislike in context (OK, i know some of you won't agree about those particular bands, but i KNOW there is at least one form of sappy music that you do like, just admit it).

oh yes indeedy, where would we be without SOME sappy music?!
and then of course there's that fine, fine line (that i believe slips around rather fluidly) between complete sappiness and heartbreaking, poignant beauty. like sunsets, i guess.
