Ludo -- Love Me Dead

I periodically get into random songs that I just think are hilarious/fascinating for some reason.

Rarely do I seek out the lyrics to the songs I like...I usually just hum along...because if I were to look at the lyrics, I might realize how terrible my flavor-of-the-month song really is.

But as a break from grading 2.5 million essays this weekend, I sought out the lyrics to Ludo's Love Me Dead:

Love me cancerously
Like a salt-sore soaked in the sea.
'High-maintenance' means
You're a gluttonous queen
Narcissistic and mean.

Kill me romantically
Fill my soul with vomit
Then ask me for a piece of gum.
Bitter and dumb
You're my sugarplum.
You're awful, I love you!

CHORUS:
She moves through moonbeams slowly
She knows just how to hold me
And when her edges soften
Her body is my coffin
I know she drains me slowly
She wears me down to bones in bed
Must be the sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead! Love me dead!

You're a faith-healer on T.V.
You're an office park without any trees
Corporate and cold
Gushing for gold
Leave me alone.

You suck so passionately
You're a parasitic, psycho, filthy creature
finger-bangin' my heart
You call me up drunk
Does the fun ever start?
You're hideous and sexy!

CHORUS

Love me cancerously
Brrrot-dot-da-d-da-da!
How's your new boy?
Does he know about me?
You've got the mark of the beast.
You're born of a jackal! You're beautiful!

CHORUS
Wha' 'bout that sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead!


Some of the everlasting images have to be "fill my soul with vomit," "You're a parasitic, psycho, filthy creature finger-bangin' my heart," and "You've got the mark of the beast. You're born of a jackal! You're beautiful!"

Something Shakespearean about it, don't you think?

If someone said I was born of a jackal, I might have to consider that the essence of throwing down the gauntlet.

My song of the month is gross, sickening, and filled with morose sexually perverse images juxtaposed against the eternal struggle of rejection.

Screw "Here Comes the Bride." I think I figured out my wedding song!

and maybe your first dance at a future undisclosed wedding could be "I hate everything about you."

Darron...we all think it's cute that you are fulfilling your desires to be a women via Blogger.

That's almost as morbid as my song of the month "Bang, Bang, You're Dead" by Dirty Pretty Things.

I haven't turned on a radio since I found out that "Lolli Lolli" wasn't written for me...

Look it up, Mark - I'm sure you'll hate it now that you're getting old... ;o )
