Don’t SMILE at a Stalker (Week 38 – 2015)

Going off of last week’s topic, this week I’m going to focus on songs that deal with the darker side of things like fans… you know, those crazy, stalker types? Now, while these songs might not be directly linked to fans, the overall message is clear and they can be applied to them or any other similar situation. Enjoy!

First up, the reigning king of stalker songs, here’s The Police‘s Every Breath You Take (lyrics). With a song that starts off with “Every breath you take, every move you make, every bond you break, every step you take, I’ll be watching you” it’s easy to see why this song takes the crown.

Next up is a song that takes obsession to a whole new level. Here’s Animotion‘s Obsession (lyrics). The chorus of this song is “You are an obsession, you’re my obsession, who do you want me to be, to make you sleep with me”; a later part of the song says “You protest, you want to leave, stay, oh there’s no alternative”… that’s definitely the time you should be calling the police (and NOT the ones above xP)!

In third, is Girls’ Generation‘s RunDevilRun (Korean)(lyrics). Now, this might seem like an odd choice, but I included it for two reasons: 1. a stalker’s motivation can be anything, including simply wanting to destroy someone’s life and 2. this was the song the group was performing when one of the members was literally almost kidnapped right off the stage (3:30 mark) by a sasaeng (which I described last week).

Last for this week is The Beatles‘ Run For Your Life (lyrics). This song is essentially, “I will kill you if you are with anyone but me.” I think that’s all I need to say about it.

Are there any songs like this that creep you out? Let me know in a comment below, and be sure to include any suggestions you may have for future SMILEs!
