Today at work, I’m not in control of the music… which means that we’re listening to a lot of pop songs from the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s.
Because it’s occurring to me exactly how many pop songs are just… creepy and inappropriate.
For example, “I Can’t Stand Losing You” by the Police.
|Yes, that is the real single cover. No, I didn’t know that until five minutes ago.|
Not only is it creepy for being a song about suicide, but it’s also manipulative as hell, using suicide (or the threat thereof) as emotional blackmail.
So folks, what song(s) that have been popular during your life are just wrong now that you look back on them?
