Ah, this week Jen is asking for a Twisted Mix Tape about cheating. There are so many songs to choose from. I mean aren't most songs about love, cheating, breaking up, or drugs.........or all of the mentioned together? Here goes my list:
This has to be one of my favorite Elvis songs ever done. His voice is smooth, the beat is sensual, and he's telling his married lover not to talk in her sleep about him. My favorite lyrics in the song are, "Love is so much sweeter when it's borrowed and I'll rest a little easier tomorrow." Coming from Elvis, it sounds wonderful to borrow love. Great song, "If You Talk In Your Sleep"
This next song has a catchy beat and powerful words. Most of her songs are like that. Pretty blonde, petite Miranda Lambert states in this song, "Trade the truth in for a lie, cheating really ain't a crime........Now I don't hate the one who left, you can't hate someone that's dead" Miranda Lambert singing "Kerosene"
"Beautiful Liar" is a wonderful song. Two women, loving the same guy, realizing he is playing them both, and they are sorry for the other one, but they both want him. I have always found it pointless for women to lower themselves to fight or argue with another woman about a man. The man is the one who promised loyalty, right? Unless it's a drastic situation in where the other chic is your best friend. Then it's okay to hate her too. Here are two beautiful women singing a cheating song. Beyonce and Shakira singing "Beautiful Liar"
Now, I know everyone has heard Carrie Underwood singing about her Louisville Slugger and the damage it can do to headlights. This song is newer and I actually like it better. It has two women, both were being cheated on by the same man, and so, they end up at his funeral. That's what I'm talking about, ladies. Work together and plot some horrible vengeance on the cheating man. Here is Underwood singing "Two Black Cadillacs"
This next song is probably one of the first few cheating songs I heard growing up and realized what was going on. Of course, I had heard Hank Williams Sr. telling some woman that she'd walk the floor the whole night through and her cheating heart would tell on her. Hearing Earl Thomas Conley singing "Holding Her and Loving You" made me sad and made me realize what cheating was all about. Being super young and hearing him sing, I felt bad for him that he had to choose between two women. Did I mention I was super young?
On occasion I have to add 6 songs to the list and this is one of those occasions. I felt like this song needed to be added because all the songs above are singing about cheating, revenge, not getting caught and all the stuff that comes along with cheating...... death. This song by Gretchen Wilson called "When I Think About Cheating" is actually singing about how sure she gets lonely, sure she has opportunity to cheat, but then she thinks about how much she has to lose if she does cheat. It fits in the theme.
Here's my play list for cheating songs. A lot of choices to be made and I probably could have done a list of 10 in no time, but I won't break the rules to that extreme. i can name a couple I wanted to throw up there but the other ones I picked out ranked them. One song was Lorrie Morgan singing "Good As I Was To You." The song title speaks for itself and the video is amazing. The next one I debated about in my mind, and struggled with it or Gretchen Wilson, was "Jessie's Girl" by Rick Springfield. I thought about it because it's a song about wanting to cheat, or wanting to have his best friend's girl. As you see Gretchen Wilson won.
So, this is a blog hop!!! Link up over at Tuesday's Twisted MixTape and share your cheating songs with everyone!
