I was listening to Pandora just now when the song Don't You Want Me by The Human League came on. Immediately I was like, "Oh yeah it's been a while since I've heard this song! This is a pretty good one." Then I gave it a thumbs up and kept on listening while I worked.

Then I did what I always do which usually makes me hate a lot of songs I used to like. I looked up the lyrics:

You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
When I met you
I picked you out, I shook you up
And turned you around
Turned you into someone new
Now five years later on you've got the world at your feet
Success has been so easy for you
But don't forget it's me who put you where you are now
And I can put you back down too.

Don't. Don't you want me?
You know I can't believe it when I hear that you won't see me
Don't. Don't you want me?
You know I don't believe you when you say that you don't need me

It's much too late to find
When you think you've changed your mind
You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry

Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me? Oh!
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me? Oh!

I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
That much is true
But even then I knew I'd find a much better place
Either with or without you
The five years we have had have been such good at times
I still love you
But now I think it's time I lived my life on my own
I guess it's just what I must do

Don't. Don't you want me?
You know I can't believe it when I hear that you won't see me
Don't. Don't you want me?
You know I don't believe you when you say that you don't need me

It's much too late find
When you think you've changed your mind
You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry

Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me? Oh!
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me? Oh!

[REPEAT x3]
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me? Oh!
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me? Oh!

What a messed up catchy song! That guy sounds like a psycho. . . and a little too much like a handler. I found an article talking about this song (http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/20...-me-t.html) and at the end of the article it says that, "...lead singer Philip Oakey designed the song as a meta-commentary. In his words, it’s a “a nasty song about sexual power politics.”

Apparently in 1981 this song was a No. 1 hit in the UK, US, and more. A nasty song about sexual power politics was a No. 1 hit in several countries.... back in the 80's. Good grief.

Anyone else got a song they want to ruin for me? Don't worry, it will make life better for me (and everyone else) in the long run! Smile

Great op! I wanted to get the song that was played at the Super Bowl one year. Bruno Mars-made it look like a fun catchy song with his band and all. So I go to iTunes and I listen to the lyrics and I'm thinking there is no way I'm gonna get that song!! I forgot the name of it since I didnt get it. Then I read up on Bruno Mars and there went ever getting any songs from him. But his band looked fun!

I listen to more classical and I like to get music from other countries because I can't understand what they are saying but the tunes are catchy.

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  1John 4:1

Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8

this song is played on the radio where i live and i think it should have some airtime in western nations too
the lyrics..especially the chorus is ...peculiar..the choices of words here
keep in mind choruses are most often the most remembered part of any song due to the repetition


"Stand By You"

(even if we can't find heaven, heaven, heaven, heaven, heaven, heaven)

Hands, put your empty hands in mine
And scars, show me all the scars you hide
And hey, if your wings are broken
Please take mine so yours can open, too
'Cause I'm gonna stand by you

Oh, tears make kaleidoscopes in your eyes
And hurt, I know you're hurting, but so am I
And, love, if your wings are broken
Borrow mine 'til yours can open, too
'Cause I'm gonna stand by you

Even if we're breaking down, we can find a way to break through
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through Hell with you
Love, you're not alone, 'cause I'm gonna stand by you
Even if we can't find heaven, I'm gonna stand by you
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through Hell with you
Love, you're not alone, 'cause I'm gonna stand by you

Yeah, you're all I never knew I needed
And the heart—sometimes it's unclear why it's beating
And, love, if your wings are broken
We can brave through those emotions, too
'Cause I'm gonna stand by you

Oh, truth—I guess truth is what you believe in
And faith—I think faith is having a reason
And I know now, love, if your wings are broken
Borrow mine 'til yours can open, too
'Cause I'm gonna stand by you

Even if we're breaking down, we can find a way to break through
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through Hell with you
Love, you're not alone, 'cause I'm gonna stand by you
Even if we can't find heaven, I'm gonna stand by you
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through Hell with you
Love, you're not alone, 'cause I'm gonna stand by you

I'll be your eyes 'til yours can shine
And I'll be your arms, I'll be your steady satellite
And when you can't rise, well, I'll crawl with you on hands and knees
'Cause I... I'm gonna stand by you

Even if we're breaking down, we can find a way to break through (come on)
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through Hell with you
Love, you're not alone, 'cause I'm gonna stand by you
Even if we can't find heaven, I'm gonna stand by you
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through Hell with you
Love, you're not alone, 'cause I'm gonna stand by you
Love, you're not alone
Oh, I'm gonna stand by you
(even if we can't find heaven, heaven, heaven)
Yeah, I'm gonna stand by you

Haha, reminds me of back when my oldest daughter was in high school and we were driving home and listening to the radio and the song "love shack" came on.  She started singing and dancing (well as much as you can dance while buckled in a car) to the song, something I always did with my kids.  About half way through the song I asked her if she knew what the song was about and she said no.  I told her to just think for a second about the words she was singing and she stopped for a couple seconds and then all of sudden she rolls the window down and sticks her head out of the window and screams "I feel unclean!".  I busted out laughing but it was a great learning moment for her.

Then shall the king say to those on his right hand, Come ye, the blessed of my Father, inherit the reign that hath been prepared for you from the foundation of the world;

And the king answering, shall say to them, Verily I say to you, Inasmuch as ye did to one of these my brethren -- the least -- to me ye did

Here's another terrible one:

Quote:Animal/Maroon 5

Maybe you think that you can hide
I can smell your scent for miles
Just like animals
Animals

Baby I'm

So what you trying to do to me
It's like we can't stop, we're enemies
But we get along when I'm inside you, eh
You're like a drug that's killing me
I cut you out entirely
But I get so high when I'm inside you

Yeah you can start over you can run free
You can find other fish in the sea
You can pretend it's meant to be
But you can't stay away from me
I can still hear you making that sound
Taking me down rolling on the ground
You can pretend that it was me
But no, oh

Baby I'm preying on you tonight
Hunt you down eat you alive
Just like animals
Animals

So you can do what you wanna do, eh
I love your lies I'll eat 'em up
But don't deny the animal
That comes alive when I'm inside you

Yeah you can start over you can run free
You can find other fish in the sea
