Modern Day POP Songs Depressing?

Post  Boxeh on Fri Apr 22, 2011 12:53 pm

Lately i've seen a growing amount of POP songs being made about losing someone you love. Most songs in this genre just show complete depression.
This one song i can't remember the name. I think it's m&m and someone else. The lyrics go as followed.
"GIRL SINGING"
Are you just gonna stand there and watch me burn, it's alright because i like the way you "something" just the way you "something"
Then m&m does a bit of rapping
then it goes to the girl singing again.

Im not sure if anyone has heard the term "emo" it means your a person who's depressed and likes cutting themselves. Besides the cutting themselves part some songs are just really really depressing.

What are your views on modern day POP?

A few things, it's "Eminem" not m&m. The song you are talking about is "Love the way you lie", by Eminem featuring Rhianna. (Lyrics in spoiler) I think the song is more of a rap song than pop, and it is classified on Wikipedia as Hip hop an contemplate R&B.

Spoiler:
Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

I can't tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there's a steel knife
In my windpipe
I can't breathe
But I still fight
While I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right
It's like I'm in flight
High of a love
Drunk from the hate
It's like I'm huffing paint
And I love it the more that I suffer
I suffocate
And right before I'm about to drown
She resuscitates me
She f***ing hates me
And I love it
Wait
Where you going
I'm leaving you
No you ain't
Come back
We're running right back
Here we go again
It's so insane
Cause when it's going good
It's going great
I'm Superman
With the wind in his bag
She's Lois Lane
But when it's bad
It's awful
I feel so ashamed
I snap
Who's that dude
I don't even know his name
I laid hands on her
I'll never stoop so low again
I guess I don't know my own strength

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

You ever love somebody so much
You can barely breathe
When you're with them
You meet
And neither one of you
Even know what hit 'em
Got that warm fuzzy feeling
Yeah them chills
Used to get 'em
Now you're getting f***ing sick
Of looking at 'em
You swore you've never hit 'em
Never do nothing to hurt 'em
Now you're in each others face
Spewing venom
And these words
When you spit 'em
You push
Pull each others hair
Scratch, claw, bit 'em
Throw 'em down

Pin 'em
So lost in the moments
When you're in 'em
It's the rage that took over
It controls you both
So they say it's best
To go your separate ways
Guess that they don't know ya
Cause today
That was yesterday
Yesterday is over
It's a different day
Sound like broken records
Playin' over
But you promised her
Next time you'll show restraint
You don't get another chance
Life is no Nintendo game
But you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave
Out the window
Guess that's why they call it window pane

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

Now I know we said things
Did things
That we didn't mean
And we fall back
Into the same patterns
Same routine
But your temper's just as bad
As mine is
You're the same as me
But when it comes to love
You're just as blinded
Baby please come back
It wasn't you
Baby it was me
Maybe our relationship
Isn't as crazy as it seems
Maybe that's what happens
When a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is
I love you too much
To walk away though
Come inside
Pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don't you hear sincerity
In my voice when I talk
Told you this is my fault
Look me in the eyeball
Next time I'm pissed
I'll aim my fist
At the dry wall
Next time
There will be no next time
I apologize
Even though I know it's lies
I'm tired of the games
I just want her back
I know I'm a liar
If she ever tries to f***ing leave again
I'mma tie her to the bed
And set the house on fire

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that's alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that's alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

But yes, it is a rather depressing song, and if you want to see a messed up music video, the song has a strange one.

As for my view on "modern day pop", I personally think it's awful. Most of today's pop stars are attention seeking, money hungry people who can't sing. The songs are so auto-tuned you can't tell what their actual voice is like. Although that's just my opinion, and I do enjoy the odd pop song, until it's so overplayed that I never want to hear it again.

About depressing lyrics, it really depends on the artist. Eminem is popular because he raps about issues he and others have experienced, instead of just money, drugs and sex. His lyrics may be depressing, but they have meaning to them. Don't get me wrong, I don't particularly listen to Eminem or any rap (unless it's in a remix, White Panda for the win), but when you actually try to read into the lyrics, you can sometimes find meaning.
