i'm better than your gf songs

so avril's "girlfriend" song has been on heavy play with my sister's winamp. it's a catchy song. the lyrics are funny. i'm not gonna go into the whole she copied another song, blah blah blah deal... but yeah, despite all that, i always thought how stupid the content of the song is.

anyway, today i was listening to "don't cha," which is very similar in content: basically i like you, i KNOW you like me, i'm better than your gf. and that's when i decided i want to share why i think songs with these type of messages are stupid

seriously. if he really likes you as you said, and you really are better than his gf, again, as you said, then why is he still with his gf? uh, reality check, bc you arent better lol

dont get me wrong, i like the song "don't cha," it's also catchy and did i mention, fun to sing? lol and i also think "girlfriend" is a fun song too. funny lyrics and all.

but seriously, it might give some girls too much of a self-esteem lol i wouldnt talk until you got the guy :) and being with him while he's still with his gf, is not getting the guy.

I think the point is not so much of having a relationship with the guy, more on that he can't have her but he wants her.

and the fact that he's still with his gf doesnt mean the gf still has him...

u can have someone by urside but it means nothing if he's not true to you....so yeah ..no one has him in that case

i dont think the point of the song is that. it's pretty obvious that the singer wants the guy and the guy can have the singer if he wanted her. such as in "don't cha," singer said that she doesnt mind sharing him.

granted you're right about how you can have someone by your side but not really having him. but the point of my post isnt about whether the gf have him or not (since the songs dont elaborate much on that) but more of how the singer really doesnt have his heart (contrary to the message of the songs). bc if she really had his heart, she really didnt need to sing these songs.

both songs strongly state that the guy likes the singer. my point is that if the guy really likes the singer as much as she claimed, he would've left his gf to be with her. (at least for the song "girlfriend," "dont cha" is arguable)

i dont care what excuse he has like if the gf is pregnant with his own child. if he truly likes the singer as much as SHE said in the song, any gentleman would've told his gf that he can no longer be with her bc he's found someone else he truly loves. how he'll still be responsible for their unborn child and stuff but he wouldnt feel it being fair to the singer (whom he loves so much) for him to still be involved with someone else.

but then of course the song is just what the singer said. for all we know the guy's true to his gf, does not like the singer AT ALL and that the singer is actually delusional haha

i know i know, it's just some songs but it's fun discussing it hehe

wow..u feel so strongly about this whole thing about another girl stealing the bf...hm...could be ur own reflection of reality.
Aug. 10th, 2007 05:58 pm (UTC)
oh haha it has nothing to do about the girl stealing the guy. all fair in love and war. :) i always say that if you can get the guy (despite his situation, taken, married, wahtever) it's all good in my book as long as no one is cheating

just think it's stupid how the girl kept insisting she's better than the gf but the singer doesnt even have the guy! lol
Aug. 10th, 2007 07:59 pm (UTC)
hm...is a bit contradictory to have the concept of all is fair in love and war, but except if someone is cheating.

Then, u r not living up to the standard of ALL is FAIR
Aug. 10th, 2007 08:15 pm (UTC)
haha i was actually thinking that after i posted it

but i think it still fits. "all's fair in love and war" is about how there are no rules as long as you win. so no matter what you do, how dirty it is, as long as you get the person, it's all good. bc no rules.

cheating doesnt pass my morals, which is why it's not good in my book. but also, as the third person, as you stated, bc the third person has to share, he/she is not getting the person. no one is. which doesnt apply to all's fair in love and war bc no one wins... except for maybe the guy? MAYBE. that's questionable.

but that's on a whole another level lol

Why would he want her when he has a gf? Maybe just for sex but certainly nothing else. You can want to have sex with someone and not want them or love them. In the end she still loses. Don't buy into your own hype.

how about that song by Kelly clarkson which goes something like "don't buy me a drink just give me the money... its you and your hand tonight."

how about the self esteem there? haha
Aug. 15th, 2007 04:33 pm (UTC)
yeah that song is pretty funny hahah great self esteem but not the same as these songs bc she's talking bout something that already happened. she got hit on and telling the guys that hit on her that it'll never happen :P as opposed to these songs, they are assumptions lol

psst, not nitpicking but just letting you know, it's a pink song called "u + ur hand" :)
Aug. 16th, 2007 08:04 pm (UTC)
oh ok, i thought that sounded a little out of character for kelly, but its not out of pink's realm. their voice sound similiar in that song!

Aug. 16th, 2007 08:08 pm (UTC)
i agree! i get a few of them mixed up too! i only know the diff bc i listen to them online and it lists who's singing.

Maybe she's a recovering alcoholic.
Aug. 15th, 2007 05:07 pm (UTC)
