This morning, I was at work and emailing back and forth with a friend of mine. We got onto the subject of music and different kinds of songs. I came up with a select number of topics that can encompass a good deal of pop music and we tried to decide amongst ourselves which ones are the best. Here are the varying types of songs that we agreed on and I’d like to know how you Dopers out there feel. Obviously, there is no right answer, as it is opinion-based, but for you, which song is the best?
a) I love you.
b) I love you and I wish you’d love me.
c) I love you and you used to love me. WTF?
d) I really really don’t love you anymore. In fact, I strongly dislike you.
e) I’ve always disliked you.
f) We used to love each other, I’ve seen the error of my ways, I’d like you to love me again.
I’m of the opinion that C is the strongest. The facets of emotion for C are varied - there is the love that is expressed for the other, which is beautiful. But then, you also have the loneliness, fear, frustration, sadness, anger, etc. So, it’s almost as if C encompasses most of the emotions covered by the other options. So, while there are strong songs from every category, I feel C is the strongest.
