Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: 'Hostile to the opposite sex' songs
Subject: RE: BS: Best 'Hostile to the opposite sex' song
How about the Stones' 'Under My Thumb?' or 'Stupid Girl'? Dylan's 'Like A Rolling Stone' has some fairly hostile references, also. The Beatles' 'I'm Looking Through You' has the memorable line "I'm looking through you and you're nowhere!" Alanis Morrisette's song about being jilted has got to have some of the most vitriolic lyrics I've ever heard...can't remember the name of it. Out of the traditional songs 'Flora, the Lily of the West' has got some pretty obsessive imagery. Or, 'The Banks of the Ohio'..."I picked her up and threw her in...and watched her as she floated down." Ouch!
