Apparently, APPARENTLY, "Baby Got Back" is about a man's fondness for women of endowed posteriora.  It wasn't about emotional support for one's infant (as in "got your back, Baby")

I've always thought Tainted Love was about herpes.

Basically any early Depeche Mode song.

I originally was listening when I was 16-17, so songs like "Pleasure, Little Treasure" and "A Question of Time" were cool and edgy. Now that I'm, well, much older, and all I can hear is how cringe-worthy they are. These guys had to be nearly 30 when they were writing these.

There's also just straight up "Fire", in which Springsteen is a rapist who thinks that "no" means "yes".

Fire
Bruce Springsteen


I'm driving in my car
I turn on the radio
I'm pulling you close
You just say no
You say you don't like it
But girl I know you're a liar
'Cause when we kiss
Ooh, fire

But late at night
I'm takin' you home
I say I wanna stay
You say you wanna be alone
You say you don't love me
But you can't hide your desire
When we kiss
Ooh, fire

You had a hold on me
Right from the start
A grip so tight
I couldn't tear it apart
My nerves all jumpin'
Actin' like a fool
Well your kisses they burn
But your heart stays cool

Romeo and Juliet
Samson and Delilah
You can bet
Their love they didn't deny
Your words say split
But your words they lie
When we kiss
Mmh, fire
Fire

You had a hold on me
Right from the start
A grip so tight
I couldn't tear it apart
My nerves all jumpin'
Actin' like a fool
Well your kisses they burn
But your heart stays cool

Romeo and Juliet
Samson and Delilah
You can bet
Their love they didn't deny
Your words say split
But your words they lie
When we kiss
Mmh, fire
Fire
Fire
Fire

Who writes this garbage?


Exactly. I have always considered the lyrics as written by a severely depressed guy that landed a girl that was severely out of his (perceived) league.

I've been there a few times. Imposter syndrome is very real.

From a logical standpoint, they were obviously not out of my league. I dated them, but clinical depression doesn't care about logic. I've often wondered if I had the psych meds I have now back then if things would be different.

Baby, I'm preying on you tonight. Hunt you down, eat you alive. Maybe you think that you can hide, I can smell your scent for miles.

This popular Maroon 5 song is catchy, but it's also showing a very dark, negative side to love. Violence is never OK. Let's leave the animalistic side to animals, not people.

Jesus, now tell us how traumatized you are by Hungry Like the Wolf. I bet this person is a lot of fun in the sack.

It is not.  It's about suicide.  It's about that fad in the 80's where a couple pairs of teenage lovers killed themselves, because the world was too cold for their love.

Valentine is done
Here but now they're gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity... Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday... Like Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday... Redefine happiness
Another 40,000 coming everyday... We can be like they are
Come on baby... don't fear the reaper


Valentines Day?  Romeo and Juliet?  Thats no vampire.
