'Ruined' Romantic Songs


Recommended Posts

Ever had a song that sounded really good, but once you heard the actual lyrics you felt you couldn't really relate to it anymore? I'm not saying that this happens to all aro/ace people, but at least to me as soon as there's a lot of romantic or sexual stuff I really can't enjoy a song anymore. It's not even that there's something wrong with the song xD

 

Here's one I really like if not for the lyrics:

I really like screaming 'Tonight, we are young' and 'So let's set the world on fire' and the cool drum beat, but it was considerably less appealing after I heard it was about some complicated breaking up (?) romantic stuff :P

Okay, there's this amazing Sum 41 song called "With Me," which has a great melody, but has the most cringey emo lyrics you'll probably ever hear. It's about this person who can't get over the loss of their crush, and keeps feeling like they're "nothing" without the one they love. I like to listen to it when I am being a cringey emo and getting in touch with my inner Kylo Ren.

Listening to it, I can definitely see where you're coming from. Melody is awesome but not so much the lyrics xD

 

Somebody That I Used to Know is another one with a cool melody. The lyrics aren't bad (what would I know about a bad love song) but they're completely unrelatable to me :P

Um, wow, you "just" brought back some memories for me...

I found this song after I had moved houses as a kid, and I related to it so much because I connected it to missing, but no longer being connected to, my old friends. It was my favorite song for a few months, but when I heard it years later (still feeling those feelings), I realized it was about love, and was upset that the song had been ruined for me. It's a good song, but most of its appeal to me was its relatability.

Oh there's this song that's a total bop, and it's called "Jack You're Dead." I still love it, but the lyrics are pretty... aphobic perhaps??

When you've got no more assurance
Than a great big hunk of lead
And if you don't respond to romance
Jack, you're dead!

When a chick is smiling at you
Even though there's nothing said
If you stand there like a statue
Jack, you're dead!

You've been always kicking
But you stubbed your toes
When you ups and kicks the bucket
Just like old man mose
 
When you get no kicks from loving
And you blow your top instead
It's a fact that you ain't living
Jack, you're dead!
