What is Love?

Post by Ms. Piggy on Sat Jul 24, 2010 8:47 pm

So at work today I had the radio set to a "current hits" type station. In a matter of an hour I heard two songs that really bothered me. One referenced "love", but sounded more like the girl was sexy and she was good in bed. The other was seriously about cheating on your gf/bf.

Song #1 Lyrics:

I fell in love with shawty,
When I seen her on the dance floor
She was dancin' sexy, pop, pop, pop, and drop it and drop it low.
Never ever ever has a lady hit me on the first sight.
This was somethin' special,
This was just like dynamite.


She got it all.
Sexy from her head to toe.
And I want it all and all and all.

Baby let me love you down
There's so many ways to love ya
Baby I can break ya down
There's so many ways to love ya
Got me like oh my god, i'm so in love.
I found you finally, you make me want to say.
Oh,oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh my gosh.


Song #2 Lyrics:
Girl please excuse me
If I'm coming too strong
But tonight is the night
We can really let go
My girlfriend is out of town
And I'm all alone
Your boyfriend is on vacation
And he doesn't have to know

No one can do the things
I'm gonna wanna to do to you

Shout it out, scream it loud
Let me hear you go


I've heard songs on the radio in the past with the same theme. Guy finds girl sexy on the pole/dance floor and falls in love with her...they bang and call it love.

I guess I just want to know...what does love mean to you guys? Is love just good sex? Is it something more?

Song #2 brings up cheating. I've talked to my friends and it seems that when a guy cheats he gets a shit ton of "playa points" and stuff, but then when a girl cheats she's a slut. She breaks her man's heart and no one should be with her...that's how it seems in hip-hop songs anyway. How do you guys feel about cheating? It's wrong right? What's the line between flirting and cheating?

Just want some male opinions on this topic.

Baby don't hurt me, no more....

But seriously, in those songs, love just means sex. Not how most men think of love.

I want to know what love is.

Oh, also: I want you to show me.

It's actually a pretty good song. Especially the bridge.

These types of songs are rooted in patriarchal thinking. That's why they become hits and make lots of money. Yes, I'm a feminist - sue me.

Feminizm iz fun.

I can't even read all the way through those songs, so I'm going to assume you're right.

Of course, there's a lot of songs w/ patriarchal assumptions that DON'T become hits and make money. . . .

What's wrong with wanting all of your partner? Or is that song talking about a stranger?

Look at the context of the song (I know...it really is brutal reading these lyrics).

The guy is talking about watching a girl from afar on the dance floor "at first sight" wanting it all - the predatory gaze - she is a stranger - but it doesn't matter...he wants - we have entitlement.

I could read it if it wasn't on the screen. . . combo of eye-pain the comes when you try to concentrate on the screen and the WTFBLEGH nature of the lyrics means no can do. . . I can skim it though.

No, but I mean seriously - as someone who studies literature, reading these sorts of things must be a monumental WTF-experience.

You would be surprised. There's a bunch of bad literature. Or contemp literature, I guess. History does the cleaning for us w/ the old stuff. . . ultimately if it doesn't move people, it won't live on. . .

Love eh.....

deep Question....

it's not lust, because that burns out and generally starts out in a club...

Love is compatibility, be it male or female... love is understanding....

Love is to not being able to live without...

Love is something only the fortunate get to experience, the rest of us settle for second best....
