Stereo by John Legend Again!

Okay, by now I’m sure you guys are probably thinking that I’m in love with  John Legend. I am!


In his song “Stereo”, he talks about another relationship in which he becomes infatuated with a woman who, like the lyrics say, ” only loves the stereo”. She only loves being around the music and fame and that’s what attracts her to John in the first place. In the end, he lets her go because he has seen it before.

Jezebel by Sade



Can’t blame her for her beauty
She wins with her hands down

Reach for the top
And the sun is gonna shine
Every winter was a war she said
I want to get what’s mine

You Give Love a Bad Name by Bon Jovi

Bon Jovi’s 80s classic, “You Give Love a Bad Name”, talks about a Jezebel or a Femme Fatale who used her great looks and lies to make a guy fall in love with her even though she was suing him for the fame. Below are some key lyrics that characterize the jezebel.

Shot through the heart, and you’re to blame, darling
You give love a bad name

An angel’s smile is what you sell
You promise me heaven then put me through hell
Chains of love, got a hold on me
When passion’s a prison you can’t break free

You’re a loaded gun, yeah
There’s nowhere to run
No-one can save me, the damage is done

In the first verse of the song, Bon Jovi describes the way she used her good looks, “angel smile”, and heavenly promises to lure him in. She uses her chains of love to keep him close and after he realizes how poison and destructive she is there is nothing else that can be done because according to Bon Jovi, “the damage is done.” He also compares the woman to a loaded gun, which doesn’t seem like something a respectable woman would want to be compared to.

Below is it you tube video of the song. Once again, ENJOY!
