Top 10 popular songs that have toxic lyrics

Warning: This top is going to hurt your little heart. He will teach you that in the popular songs that you have all listened to at least a million times, there are lyrics that talk about a lot of toxic stuff (and sometimes a little toxic too). We are therefore clearly in a good mood, joy, and the desire to smile at life. (No way.)

1. Every Breath You Take by The Police

It’s the song of the big stalker par excellence since Sting explains to his ex that he will watch her all his life. It’s slightly creepy, but with such beautiful music behind it, it goes really well:

“Every breath you take, every move you make, every bond you break, every decision you make, I will watch you […] Oh, can’t you see you belong to me? »

2. “Stay” by The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber

The first verse of the song is clearly the talk of someone toxic trying to get the person they love (or want to own) to stay, and it’s a bit bad if you’ve ever been through it. this kind of situation:

“I’m doing precisely what I said I would never do. I told you I was going to change, even though I knew it was impossible. I know I will never find someone like you again. You have to stay, you have to stay. »

3. Avril Lavigne’s Girlfriend

The girl advises a guy to leave his girl because she doesn’t like her. If one day one of your friends tells you that without any valid argument behind it, it is him that you must leave immediately:

“Hey hey you you, I don’t like your girlfriend, No question no question, You need a new one”

4. Rihanna’s Unfaithful

As the name suggests, the song is about a cheating girl who hurts her boyfriend because she’s cheating on him. But she still stays with him while he suffers from it. It’s not super chic as behavior:

“And I can’t be honest with him. And I know he knows I’m unfaithful, and it’s destroying him inside. »

5. Taylor Swift’s Stay Stay Stay

The song is clearly about a girl who wants to hold her boyfriend back when she seems to be misbehaving with him. She gets angry for nothing, but as he is the only one to support her a minimum, she would like him to stay in a relationship with her. I say at one point there is no harm in going to see a shrink:

“Stay and I’m gonna love you for a long time, No one else is gonna love me when I get mad, mad, mad, So I think it’s best that we both stay”

6. Kiss With a Fist by Florence and the Machine

Well, there again you don’t have to be out of Saint-Cyr to see the toxic nature of the lyrics of the song. Basically, we are talking about a couple who “kiss each other with their fists”, so who regularly fuck each other in the face while continuing to love each other. Everyone has their own tastes, but generally it does not make people happy:

“You hit me once, I hit you back. You kicked me, I slapped you. You threw a plate at my head and then I set fire to our bed. »

7. Love the Way You Lie by Eminem and Rihanna

Probably one of the saddest songs in this ranking. It’s a couple who spend their time tearing each other apart, with a man who had sworn never to be violent and yet was, and a woman who can’t break up because she loves his lies. If you want to know what a couple that doesn’t work is, go read the rest of the lyrics:

“I told you it was my fault, look me in the eye.” Next time I get mad, I’ll punch the wall. Next time, there will be no next time, I apologize, even though I know they are lies. I’m tired of playing, I just want her back. I know I’m a liar. If she ever tries to leave again I tie her to the bed and set this house on fire. »

8. Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke

Beyond the yucky nature of the clip, which totally objectifies women, the lyrics are also largely tendentious. The worst is probably this “good girl” delirium, a nice girl who would do whatever her master wants from her. In short, it’s a little nauseating:

“I’ve always dreamed of having a nice daughter. I know you want it. I know you want it. I know you want it. You’re a nice girl”

9. Treat You Better by Shawn Mendes

Generally, when a guy tells a girl that she would be better off with him than with the guy she already has, it’s toxic. This is the case 90% of the time according to my own estimates:

“Tell me why we’re wasting time, especially wasting our tears, when you should be by my side, I know I can take care of you better, better than he does”

10. Mozart’s Symphony No. 40

Well ok there are no words there, but I’m sure if there had been they would have been super toxic.
