1 / 7

Nat King Cole's "L-O-V-E"

Movie: 2007's Lars and the Real Girl

Swoon level: 2.3 million candy hearts

Bonus moment: "You should watch me chop wood, too. I'm really good at it."

2 / 7

Jodeci's "Cry for You" with Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez

Show: The Mickey Mouse Club

Swoon factor: [baby voice] Awwwwwwwww!!

3 / 7

The Mills Brothers' "You Always Hurt the One You Love"

Movie: 2010's Blue Valentine

Swoon rating: 2.1 million candy hearts

Bonus moments: "I can't really sing. I hafta sing goofy in order to sing, like I hafta sing stupid." And Michelle Williams' dancing.

4 / 7

Dead Man's Bones' "In The Room Where You Sleep" live with Silverlake Conservatory of Music Children's Choir

Context (via YouTube summary): "We shot this at the wrap party for our album. All the kids wore costumes, we had a taco truck and a bouncy house and face painting." The whole self-titled debut album, released in 2009, was a collaboration with these kiddos.

Swoon factor: GOSLING AND PIANO AND CHILDREN?? A million thousand billion and two.

Bonus moment: Ry-Ry getting all freaky and "Monster Mash"-y at the 1:25 mark

Peret's "Borriquito"

Movie: 2012's The Place Beyond the Pines

Swoon rating: 19,000 "Hey Girl" Tumblr posts

Bonus fact: He's singing the song to charm the mother of Romina, played by Eva Mendes, one-day IRL mother of baby Esmeralda Gosling.

6 / 7

The Dead Man's Bones album

Released: 2009

Swoon rating: Probably a modest B+

Other members of the band: Zach Shields (mostly on percussion)

7 / 7

And the "Dead Man's Bones" music video

Context: The music video for Gosling's band's self-titled song from their self-titled 2009 album.

Swoon factor: Not abnormally high, as he doesn't actually appear. Great to see a skeleton dancing so vigorously to Gosling's musical stylings, though.
