The misinterpretation of song lyrics goes back as far as songwriting does—because let's face it the only one that really knows what a song is about is the person or people writing it. So it really is easy to take something a certain way when you aren't even sure how it was supposed to be taken to begin with.
This is especially true when it comes to "love songs" or what we think sounds or feels like a love song. More often than not, a song that sounds like it's about love, is in fact about something much deeper and oftentimes much darker.
Traditionally love songs find their way into some of lifes most important moments, and they forever imbed themselves into how we think and feel about those moments. When those wedding bells ring, event DJs around the world cringe knowing they're going to have to explain to yet another "Bride-to-be" that no one can love one another enough to make it okay to be possessed by them and that certainly doesn't make them a better man.
This week we've taken it upon ourselves to discuss just a few of the constantly misinterpreted songs out there that people, for better or for worse think are love songs—which at face value may sound a whole lot like a love song but are about pretty much the exact opposite. If you're in the market for a marital celebration you may want to give this episode a listen first. It's season 3. episode 3 of your favorite wedding DJ's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!
