Presuming AZLyrics didn’t fudge the words…

I know the territory – I’ve been around
It’ll all turn to dust and we’ll all fall down
Sooner or later you’ll be screwing around

I won’t do that!
No I won’t do that!”

He’s saying he’ll do anything for HER love (i.e., NOT screw someone else, for ‘love’).


“But I’ll never forget the way you feel right now
Oh no
No way
And I would do anything for love
But I won’t do that”

Furthering the point.

10 – Agree, it’s a bland, bland hair metal ballad
9 – Kiss suck. Always have. Period.
8 – Never heard of Hinder or this song
7 – Not Hall and Oats best song.
6 – Meatloaf sucks, this is one of his worst. Only song of his that’s worse is Paradise by Dashboard light: We get it…Baseball is a metaphor for fucking.

5 – Bland hair metal, interchangeable with #10
4 – Good pick, that song is terrible and cheezy
3 – I don’t think it’s supposed to be serious.
2 – Too nuanced? Does the duality escape you? This is a masterful song with brilliantly menacing lyrics and melancholy atmosphere. Ugh…so millenial to dismiss it.
1 – Easy pick, lame suckage levels off the charts

Good list, except for 2 and 3 – You blew it on those.


Oh, as for Meatloaf? Hmmm…meeting the in-laws, if I had to guess.

1) Holy crap! I Would Do Anything For Love is one of the best love songs! “After awhile you’ll forget everything; It’s a brief interlude, a mid-summer night’s dream And you’ll see that it’s time to move on” “I won’t do that.” He’s trying to express that his passion for her is not a passing thing. The song is working backwards: She has already expressed distrust of his overblown emotions because they are just that; She is listening to his arguments and finally gets more to say when he quiets down. “Will you hold me sacred, will you hold me… Read more »

“Every Breath you Take” cleverly plays on a duality of perspectives. The point of view expressing the song using language of devotion for the benefit of himself and outside observers, but in reality he’s clearly moved into an unhealthy obsession. The Police were clever songwriters who could write beyond pop pleasantries. There is a dual nature to several of their songs, like “Wrapped Around Your Finger” and “Roxanne”, but also heavier subject matter analyzing modern society (Message in a Bottle and Many Miles Away), Spiritualism VS Materialism (Spirits in the Material World), the inevitability of suffering (King of Pain), etc…… Read more »

I quite like some songs on this list 🙂 Usually because of a personal relation, as they tend to do.

I know you said only “hard rock” songs, but here are some others in other genres that I have to say are very confusing “love” songs: “Happy to be Stuck With You” – Huey We got too many friends and places that we share, so breaking up would be more akward IMO, so let’s trudge through this somehow. “Escape” (The Stupid Ass Pina Colada Song) I decided to cheat on my “lady”, I then find out that she’s cheating on me, and we laugh about it, instead of calling lawyers, very odd song. “Love The One You’re With” – CSNY… Read more »

Heh. Jimmy Buffet’s “Why Don’t We Get Drunk & Screw”…followed by the Beatles’ “Why Don’t We Do It In The Road”, Spinal Tap’s “Big Bottom”, AC/DC’s “Big Balls” and topped off with Bad English’s “When I See You Smile”.

Good times. 🙂
