This is not a love song - updated-

It's time to play Guess Song By Lyrics, Valentine style.

Well, no. Anyone can sing a love song. But it takes a special kind of someone to sing an anti-love song.

Give us your best lines from songs about love gone horribly wrong. Don't put the title - it's everyone else's job to guess the song.

I'll start you off with a couple.

I've added a few and crossed off those that were guessed correctly.

I don't care for any casanova thing
I could make you happy you know, if you weren't already
Wish I hadn't bought you dinner right before you dumped me on your front porch
em>Love was twisted and pointed at you
Iíll come to you like an affliction and Iíll leave you like an addiction

Grey would be the color if I had a heart.
You disturb my natural emotions, you make me feel like dirt
And the resentment rides high, but emotions wonít grow

Comments

don't know the others, but the last one is Henry Rollins' Liar.

Song One:
No chance for contact, there's no raison d'etre; my only hope is one day I'll forget the pain of knowing what can never be--with or without love, it's all the same to me.

Song two:

Last night I said to her I didn't want to live inside a lie. If she wants him more than she wants me, let this be.

ya played me, ya even gave him head,
now ya askin for me back,
ya just another act, look elsehwere
cuz ya done with me

Song three is Ben Folds.

Song 4 is "This Love" by Pantera.

"fell in love push came to shove but you broke so easily"

"I still remember and the feeling's still the same and this pain inside of me goes on and on"

Alex

Song Two is "She'll Come Back To Me" by Cake

A couple more:

"No one in the world ever gets what they want and that is beautiful.
Everybody dies frustrated inside and that is beautiful."

"And I went crazy again today, looking for a strand to climb, looking for a little hope"

And an easy one:

"Late at night she knocks on my door.
She's drunk again and looking to score."

Michele's song 1 is "Love Stinks"

"No one in the world ever gets what they want and that is beautiful.
Everybody dies frustrated inside and that is beautiful."

They Might Be Giants....can't think of song...

"Late at night she knocks on my door. She's drunk again and looking to score."

Offspring, Self Esteem

Song #1:

How could you do, what you gone and done to me? I wouldn't treat a dog they way you treated me...

#2 is Ani Difranco, 'Untouchable face'.

I've enjoyed making you miserable for years / found peace of mind in playing on your fears.

"Grey would be the color if I had a heart"

NIN - "Something I Can Never Have"

Used to listen to it over and over again during my worst depression. Lovely memory.

Kong

Grey would be the color if I had a heart.

something i can never have: nine inch nails

Here is my favorite anti-love song line:

"I'd rather clean all the bathroom in Grand Central Station with my tongue
Than spend one more minute with you"

Kong

and Kong breaks out the Weird Al. Well done.

Not that I know...

[slinks away in shame]

Michele:
"Grey would be the color if I had a heart."

That would be "Something I Can Never Have"--the greatest NIN song off of the greatest NIN album.

Wow... and lots of people beat me to it.

"40 tons of diesel locomotive couldn't drag back to you"

"You disturb my natural emotions, you make me feel like di-uh-uh-urt and that huh-uh-uh-urts"

"Every Fallen in Love?" The Buzzcocks

"And resentment rides high, but emotions won't grow"

"Love Will Tear us Apart" Joy Division

And I'd like to reiterate once more that Paul Young doing that song is, in fact, the WORST COVER VERSION OF ALL TIME. You really haven't lived until you've heard a classic post-punk masterpiece redone as adult contemporary.

Easy, but one of my favorite lines:

Another prop, to occupy my time...

or:

And if you think this might be bringing me down
Look again cause I ain't wearin' no frown
I don't really care about your sister
Fuck the little bitch 'cause I already kissed her

And:

Well, maybe the others will believe your lies,
you can tell those schoolboys your alibis.
And baby i'll catch you later on down the line,
cuz maybe i got better things on my mind

Song Two: Untouchable Face by Ani DiFranco

Song Six: Something I Can Never Have by NIN

"The weakest thing I've ever done is stay right by your side"

Song 2
"Why can't you show some feeling?
Why can't you understand?
Messed up my whole life
Why wreck my day
Did my best to love you
Now do your best to leave"

Some easy ones:

"So now I'm praying for the end of time..."

"All I wanna do is have a good time, now I'm blue..."

I've made a small fortune and you squandered it all
You shamed me till I feel about one inch tall
But I thought I loved you and I hoped you would change
So I gritted my teeth and didn't complain

I couldn't ever bring myself to hate you as I'd like

the chorus from one on heavy rotation for me these days, excepting the line with the title:

So darlin' here's my message, read it loud and clear
Get your head out of your ass, and get your ass right out of here
There's no percentage in ya', there ain't nothin' to be won

"I could make you happy you know, if you weren't already"
Untouchable Face - Ani DiFranco

"Grey would be the color if I had a heart."
Something I Can Never Have - Nine Inch Nails

Ummm, and yeah, I obviously didn't read the rest of the comments. Just saw that those two hadn't been crossed off. Oops.
