Requiem for a Song

Listening to commercial radio is depressing. Do you ever really stop and listen to the lyrics of the songs? I'm not talking about the raunchy stuff or the silly stuff. I'm talking about the songs that for all intents and purposes are supposed to be serious. Especially the ones that are about "true love."

Exhibit A:
"Take a look at my girlfriend
She's the only one I got.
She's not much of a girlfriend,
I never seem to get a lot."

Exhibit B:
"My girl's in the next room.
Sometimes I wish she was you.
I guess we never really moved on.
It's really good to hear your voice saying my name,
It sounds so sweet.
Coming from the lips of an angel,
Hearing those words it makes me weak."

Exhibit C:
"You're still a part of everything I do.
You're on my heart just like a tattoo.
Just like a tattoo,
I'll always have you."

It hurts me.

Wow. That is depressing. At least we have contemporary Christian radio.

Okay, seriously, I was just having this conversation with two friends on Friday. One told me, oh, you always hate stuff about infidelity. Um, yes, shouldn't you?

It is sad. But Troy's comment cheered me up...

That is too funny.
