I was listening to my music collection today and thought, hey some of these songs sound like they have been written by stalkers or very obsessive people. Examples:

QUOTE
Every step you take (Police)

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you

O can't you see
You belong to me…


QUOTE
Ticket to Ride (The Beatles)

She said that living with me
Was bringing her down yeah.
She would never be free
When I was around.

She's got a ticket to ri-hide,
She's got a ticket to ri-hi-hide,
She's got a ticket to ride,
But she don't care.

I don't know why she ridin' so high,
She ought to think twice,
She ought to do right by me.
Before she gets to saying goodbye,
She ought to think twice,
She ought to do right by me.


And one of  my favourites:

QUOTE
Somebody that I used to know (Gotye)

But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don't even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and I feel so rough
No you didn't have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just somebody that I used to know

[Kimbra:]
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
Part of me believing it was always something that I'd done
But I don't wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn't catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know


When does a song about love become simply a song that could have been written by an obsessive fan or stalker?

Any other stalker (or obsessive fan) song suggestions?

No suggestions but I always find it odd when people choose 'every step you take' as a wedding song

You Can't Do That by The Beatles is totally overbearing. I can't even listen to it anymore, it annoys me that much.

Iíve got somethiní to say that might cause you pain
If I catch you talkin' to that boy again
Iím gonna let you down
And leave you flat
Because I told you before
oh, You canít do that

Well itís the second time Iíve caught you talkin' to him
Do I have to tell you one more time, I think itís a sin
I think I'll let you down (let you down)
And leave you flat (gonna let you down and leave you flat)
Because I told you before
oh, You canít do that

Everybody's green
Cuz I'm the one who won your love
But if they'd seeeen
You talking that way, They'd laugh in my face

So Please listen to me if you wanna stay mine
I canít help my feelings I go out of my mind
I'm gonna let you down (let you down)
And leave you flat (gonna let you down and leave you flat).
Because I told you before,
oh You canít do that!

I Want You by Elvis Costello. Great song, but very stalkerish:

Oh my baby baby I love you more than I can tell
I don't think I can live without you
And I know that I never will
Oh my baby baby I want you so it scares me to death
I can't say anymore than "I love you"
Everything else is a waste of breath
I want you
You've had your fun you don't get well no more
I want you
Your fingernails go dragging down the wall
Be careful darling you might fall
I want you
I woke up and one of us was crying
I want you
You said "Young man I do believe you're dying"
I want you
If you need a second opinion as you seem to do these days
I want you
You can look in my eyes and you can count the ways
I want you
Did you mean to tell me but seem to forget
I want you
Since when were you so generous and inarticulate
I want you
It's the stupid details that my heart is breaking for
It's the way your shoulders shake and what they're shaking for
it's knowing that he knows you now after only guessing
I want you
It's the thought of him undressing you or you undressing


Etc. Not going to post the whole song, but you get the general idea . .

I am a huge BEatles, fan, have been since I was 5 years old.  But some of their songs...

Run for your life

"I'd rather see you dead little girl
Thank to be with another man
You'd better keep your head little girl
Or you won't know where I am

You better run for your life if you can, little girl
HIde your head in the sand, little girl
Catch you with another man, that's the end. LIttle girl

Well you know that I'm a wicked guy
And I was born with a jealous mind
And I can't spend my whole life
trying just to make you toe the line

You better...

LEt this be a sermon
I mean everything I said
Lately I'm determined
and I'd rather see you dead

You better...


(Proud to say I typed this all from memory, lol...)

John Lennon has said that he hated this song.  That makes me feel a little but better about it wink.gif

"On My Mind" by Powderfinger is definitely a stalker song.


"(Baby I've Got You) On My Mind"


Baby I've got you on my mind, honey you won't ever know
How much I need you by my side, promise you won't ever go
I won't take no from you this time
Baby I've got you on my mind

'Cause honey I've got to show (I won't wait for another day)
Just what I can do (My heart died when you loosed the chains)
Because I think I know (I won't wait for another day)
What you are going through (My heart died when you loosed the chains)
I hope you feel it the way I feel it, I hope you feel it the way I feel it too.

So if I had this all my way, honey you won't ever know
I'd be there through every night and day, promise you won't ever go
I won't hold back from you this time
Baby I've got you on my mind

Bon Jovi's "Always" is a stalker song and NOT a love song like some people believe.  It was written for a film (but not used) and it IS about stalking an ex lover.

Agree re. Beatles songs (even though I'm a big fan too), some of them are definitely a bit... off.

This one always gets me - it's more DV than stalking... showing remorse is a good thing though, I suppose:

Getting Better

I used to be cruel to my woman
I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved
Man, I was mean but I'm changing my scene
And I'm doing the best that I can

There's no stalker song like a country stalker song. I've got a few but I think award goes to Pat Green's Don't Break My Heart Again and its absolutely terrifying official music video.

The chorus:
Don't break my heart again. We're one in the same.
Baptised by tears. Washed in the blame.
You can let your heart go. But I will hunt you down.
Your love is all I want to win. Don't break my heart again.

The video nightmare fuel:
Don't Break My Heart Again

'In My Head' by Jason Derulo:

Just leave with me now, say the word and we'll go (we can go)
I'll be your teacher, I'll show you the ropes (you the ropes)
You'll see a side of love you've never known (never known)
I can see it going down, going down

In my head, I see you all over me
In my head, you fulfill my fantasy
In my head, you'll be screaming ohh
In my head, it's going down
In my head, it's going down
In my head

Jessica Mauboy's song Inescapable is pretty stalkerish with lyrics such as:

I'll be inescapable, unshakable, incapable
You won't get rid of me, get rid of me (yeah)

I'm gonna get to you, I'll wear wear wear you down
All your defences, gonna tear tear tear them down
All of the reasons why this won't won't work
You'll find they don't don't work no more (no more)

If you're dreaming, I'll sneak in
Lock your door and I'll creep in
When you're waking, when you're sleeping
I will be there

Chorus
I'll be inescapable, like a song in your head
Unshakable, try to fight but you'll be incapable
You won't get rid of me, get rid of me (yeah)
You think you can keep me out
I'll be all you think about
My spell will be unbreakable
I'll be inescapable

Missing by Everything But The Girl. Major stalking song   ohmy.gif

I step off the train
I'm walkin' down your street again
And pass your door
But you don't live there anymore
It's years since you've been there
And now you've disappeared somewhere
Like outer space
You've found some better place

And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you
Oh
(Like the deserts miss the rain)

Could you be dead?
You always were two steps ahead
Of ev'ryone
We'd walk behind while you would run
I look up at your house
And I can almost hear you shout, down to me
Where I always used to be

And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)

Back on the train
I ask why did I come again
Can I confess?
I've been hangin' 'round your old address
And the years have proved
To offer nothin' since you moved
You're long gone
But I can't move on

And I miss you
Oh-oh (Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you, yeah
(Like the deserts miss the rain) And I miss you

I step off the train
I'm walkin' down your street again
Pass your door
I guess you don't live there anymore
It's years since you've been there
And now you've disappeared somewhere
Like outer space
You've found some better place

Blondie - One Way or Another


One way or another I'm gonna find ya
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I'm gonna win ya
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I'm gonna see ya
I'm gonna meetcha meetcha meetcha meetcha
One day, maybe next week
I'm gonna meetcha, I'm gonna meetcha, I'll meetcha
I will drive past your house
And if the lights are all down
I'll see who's around

One way or another I'm gonna find ya
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I'm gonna win ya
I'll getcha, I'll getcha
One way or another I'm gonna see ya
I'm gonna meetcha meetcha meetcha meetcha
One day, maybe next week
I'm gonna meetcha, I'll meetcha

And if the lights are all out
I'll follow your bus downtown
See who's hanging out

One way or another I'm gonna lose ya
I'm gonna give you the slip, a slip of the lip or another
I'm gonna lose ya, I'm gonna trick ya, I'll trick ya
One way or another I'm gonna lose ya
I'm gonna trick ya trick ya trick ya trick ya
One way or another I'm gonna lose ya
I'm gonna give you the slip

I'll walk down the mall
Stand over by the wall
Where I can see it all
Find out who ya call
Lead you to the supermarket checkout
Some specials and rat food, get lost in the crowd

Don't Speak by No Doubt. It's not super stalkerish, but if someone phoned you and said it to you, you'd be wondering if you were going to need a restraining order down the track.

"You and me
We used to be together
Every day together always

I really feel
That I'm losing my best friend
I can't believe
This could be the end

It looks as though you're letting go
And if it's real,
Well I don't want to know

[Chorus]
Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts
Don't speak
I know what you're thinking
I don't need your reasons
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

Our memories
They can be inviting
But some are altogether
Mighty frightening

As we die, both you and I
With my head in my hands
I sit and cry

[Chorus]

It's all ending
I gotta stop pretending who we are,
You and me
I can see us dying, are we?

[Chorus]

Bort couldn't agree more with Garbage #1 Crush

And my contribution is Ava Adore by the Smashing Pumpkins, sample here

It's you that I adore
You'll always be my whore
You'll be the mother to my child
And a child to my heart
We must never be apart
We must never be apart

Lovely girl, you're the beauty in my world
Without you there aren't reasons left to find

And I'll pull your crooked teeth
You'll be perfect just like me
You'll be a lover in my bed
And a gun to my head
We must never be apart
We must never be apart


I love this song, but yeah, it's disturbing  laugh.gif
