Top 5 Stalker songs

No wonder they say music messes up everyone with their suggestive lyrics.  I've gone ahead and compiled the top five songs that are definite stalker songs.  Let's take a look...

Number 5

Turn Around, Look at Me - The Vogues

There is someone walking behind you,
turn around, look at me.
There is someone watching your footsteps,
turn around, look at me

Yes, even those innocent teen days of the early 60s went a bit stalker.  Somewhere along here we moved from "I want to hold your hand" to following her everywhere.  Creepy.

Number 4

I Can See for Miles - The Who

I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles
Oh yeah

If you think that I don't know about the little tricks you play
And never see you when deliberately you put things in my way

Well, here's a poke at you
You're gonna choke on it too
You're gonna lose that smile
Because all the while

I can see for miles and miles
I can see for miles and miles
I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles
Oh yeah

Great, an ex that stalks with magical eyes watching your every move.  This is why you should never date magicians...or people with good eyesight for that matter...

Number 3

I Will Follow You - Little Peggy March

I will follow you
Follow you wherever you may go
There isn't an ocean too deep
A mountain so high it can keep me away

Don't let her innocent name fool you, she's a full-time stalker!  She's determined!  Personally, I thought the bottom of the ocean would be stalker-free

Number 2

Run For Your Life - The Beatles

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'a little girl

Yes, even The Beatles wrote a stalker song.  Perhaps they were tired of a billion screaming girls stalking their every move.

Number 1

Every Breath You Take - The 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

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

Well, you have to hand it to Sting for creating the ultimate stalker song.  Watching a person's every breath takes a lot of concentration and time.  This is like the pinnacle of stalkerdome!

Then there's the date rape song, "Baby, It's Cold Outside."

Ed said...

kurt - Good point...what WAS in that drink of hers? Sounds like another Hangover sequel in the making...

Monkey Man said...

Don't forget the ultimate stalker / killer song - This is the end by The Doors.

sybil law said...

What about that lamb Mary had? Creepy.

Tom said...

the police were like Big Brother...must have been stood up by Roxanne.

Beth said...

And to think I used to sing my little heart out to some of these!
(Was I a closet stalker??)

ReformingGeek said...

I always wondered about that breathing song. Scary stuff.

I Am Woody said...

And I thought Sting was so sexy when he sang that song. Just what does that say about me?!?

lime said...

hahah, i kept reading thinking, he's got to get to "every breath you take." thanks for not disappointing.

i remember hearing an interview with sting too about how disturbing he found it when people would tell him they thought it was such a romantic love song since even he regarded it more as a stalkerish thing.

Megan said...

I like at the end of Norwegian Wood how he sets the place on fire.

Short & sweet.

Ed said...

monkey man - Of course, you have to suffer through something like 20 minutes of Jim Morrison ranting on to realize this...

sybil law - Good one...that damn lamb was a nuisance...well, until Mary had herself some chops for dinner that is...

tom - Aren't the police and big brother one in the same?

beth - Apparently you were drinking the kool-aid! Anymore and you'd have been right out there with the paparazzi watching celebrities pick their noses...

reforminggeek - It's even more troubling to know he's also counting each breath...

incredible woody - It says you probably weren't listening to the lyrics...

lime - You knew I wouldn't let you down...

megan - Ha! That's a good one. You know, I think there were some lyrics dropped from that song. Right after she says "it's time for bed" but before he crawls to sleep in the bath. They just couldn't write about that kinky stuff that went on back then...

Mrsupole said...

Maybe after one quits stalking, one writes music about it. I wonder how many more stalker songs are out there. Makes wanting to hold ones hand sound so innocent.

God bless.

Jaime said...

def leppard's two steps behind is also pretty stalkerish

“Walk away if you want to.
Its ok, if you need to.
Well, you can run, but you can never hide
From the shadow that's creepin up beside you.”

Anonymous said...

Ed said...

mrsupole - Once a stalker...always a stalker...

jaime - I had to dismiss them on the account that they did this in the 80s...and I refuse to go back...

T - Great list. But all I have to say is that somebody has been downloading a lot of music! Mums the word...

GAB said...

and how do they see the breath in warm weather? huh ? can you tell me? I can see that they can in winter but warm weather summer time? OH YEAH maybe I should try a hand on this song writing after all I can write stupid stuff and probably make a fortune lol
