It’s getting close to VD, a holiday which I actually really like because I enjoy any excuse for people to be happy together and celebrate love. But at the same time, I also really enjoy watching people have complete contempt for it as a holiday and trying hard to crush the joy out of it. So in that spirit, let’s discuss messed up love songs!
This list is pretty spot on, so my only addition is Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby”, which sounds like full on delusion in the making. I love Mimi, but even as a 12 year old fangirl I knew this song was messed up.
ETA Escape (The Piña Colada Song), because I mentioned it in the comments and now I can’t stop thinking about how messed up it is.
