Always The Love Songs

I think I’m going to give up on the love songs. I’ve had it with the cheesy, sappy lyrics to further remind all of the lovebirds out there just how in-love they are. I don’t want to hear about it anymore! I want something with bass and electric guitar and some dude screaming about how his girlfriend cheated on him!

Okay, so maybe I am a little bitter, but I have a hard time believing that certain artists are telling the truth in their lyrics. Maybe it’s just me but I do have a couple of examples:

“I remember trying not to stare the night that I first met you, you had me mesmerized, And three weeks later, in the front porch light, taking 45 minutes to kiss goodnight. I hadn't told you yet, that I thought I loved you then.” Please tell me you are kidding!!

“And now you're my whole life, and now you're my whole world, And I just can’t believe the way I feel about you girl.” Is anyone else in need of some Gravol??

Now don’t get me wrong: I absolutely love Brad Paisley! I think he is one of the most, if not the most, talented country music singers and musicians of our time. I am sure he honestly does feel this way about his wife and that is great! We should all be very happy for them. They have obviously found true love and that doesn’t come around often. That being said, for those of us single folk out there, this music makes me sick. I don’t want to hear about how happy you are; I don’t give a flying donkey. Do radio stations have to torture us with the same songs over and over again? It would be much different if the sappy song came on and then they played something like “Standing Outside The Fire” or “Before He Cheats”, but no. Instead, they decide to play the same songs that torture my poor heart over and over again! Sorry Brad, by I used to like this song before it went into overkill! More examples?

“Better than I was, more than I am and all of this happened by taking your hand and who I am now is who I wanted to be and now that we're together, I'm stronger than ever I'm happy and free.” Oh! Let me guess! It’s your love! Oh, yeah. Sure it is. Tim, we all know you just wanted to get laid that night!

I admit, I am bitter. I know that one day I will look back on all of these songs and say how beautiful they are as I choose my wedding song (which is “Making Memories Of Us" by Keith Urban, btw). For the meantime, can we please have a little variety on the radio and possibly some angry country songs? You know, Mamma is in jail and the train’s rolling in so you best be hauling in that cattle and grabbing your boots; it’s party time down on the farm.
