Circle slash love songs

Love songs piss me off.

It’s not just that I’m bitter and I don’t want to hear about anyone’s happily ever after, though that’s part of it. Mostly what pisses me off is that the most romantic thing you can say in a love song is “I couldn’t live without you.” Every time I hear one of those lines — “I just can’t go on,” “I can’t live if living is without you” — I want to punch the singer in the nuts.

Seriously. If I can go on living after the love of my life killed himself… dude, you can fucking suck it up and deal with being dumped, and I don’t want to hear any more whining about it.

  1. Absofreakinglutely. Totally agree.

    Love you

  2. There are songs that your experience has colored for me in this light, too. There is a particular song that has always, always, from Day One, reminded me of you and Mike, and now when I hear it, it just makes me angry.

  3. For me, it was all the break-up songs that hurt the most. Every single one of them sounded like death to me, and was salt in my wounds. I still hear them differently, almost 4 years later, though it doesn’t hurt quite as much. I guess I’ve settled into having wistful, melancholy moments when those songs touch me.

  4. LOL

    Remind me not to sing any tunes in your presence. Ouch!

    I also can’t take any whining about relationships,whether they be in a song, or being shared by someone in my presence. I tend to quickly change the subject. I will usually tell the person, “yeah, Michael used to piss me off about things as well, but I would love to have the oppotunity to have him here to fight with.” That usually does the trick.

    See, I kind of go for the jugular instead of the nuts. I suppose I’m a bit sensitive in that area.
