So this week Jen asked for cheating songs. Despite the name of my mix tape, I’m not giving you The Eagles. Also not appearing on this list is that shitty song by Hinder. That song makes me want to do permanent damage to my eardrums thus ensuring I never have to hear it again. So let’s just hop into this so you can see what IS on the list!
Shame for You- Lilly Allen
One British accent and some tongue in cheek lyrics deliver a fun and bubbly cheating song.
Spreading your seed all over the town
getting too greedy and messing around:
Oh my gosh you must be joking me
if you think that you’ll be poking me
Human- The Human League
Pretty funny that this is now in an insurance commercial. My friend Claire and I like to dramatically perform the spoken word portion of this song: “The tears I cry aren’t tears of pain….”
I wouldn’t ever try to hurt you
I just needed someone to hold me
To fill the void while you were gone
To fill this space of emptiness
And staying in the big 80’s….
Tempted- The Squeeze
Tempted by the fruit of another
Tempted but the truth is discovered
What’s been going on
Now that you have gone
One Way Out- Allman Brothers Band
As told by the other man. You have to be sneaky unless you want a “Hey Joe” situation.
Ain’t but one way out baby, Lord I just can’t go out the door.
Ain’t but one way out baby, and Lord I just can’t go out the door.
Cause there’s a man down there, might be your man I don’t know.
Criminal- Fiona Apple
When guilt consumes you.
I’ve done wrong and
I want to
Suffer for my sins
I’ve come to you
‘Cause I need
Guidance to be true
Here’s a nice little ditty by your favorite emo band-
I Write Sins Not Tragedies- Panic at the Disco
Supposedly Brandon Boyd wrote the song Pardon Me in response to a cheating girlfriend-
Pardon Me- Incubus
Stay positive & love your life!
Listening to: Soundgarden – Halfway There
Eating: Spicy Cheese Its
Drinking : Water
Random fact: I wanted to include Zeppelin’s Heart Breaker, but I couldn’t decide if it is truly about cheating or a hooker with which he unfortunately fell in love. Six of one, half dozen of the other?
