I’m joining Jen’sTwisted MixTape and this week it’s all about songs that could get you in the clink!
Criminal Fiona Apple
I’ve been a bad bad girl
I’ve been careless
With a delicate man
And it’s a sad sad world
When a girl will break a boy
Just because she can
Who amongst us hasn’t been careless with a delicate man (or woman)? By no means am I some type of female lothario but I’m sure that somewhere along the way I was not always so careful with other people’s feelings.
Bust Your Windows Jazmine Sullivan
Addendum: In a bout of sloppy blogging I had not changed the original song I was going to use. Please to enjoy the ultimate get back song.
I bust the windows out your car.
You know I did it cause I left my mark.
Wrote my initials with a crowbar
And then I drove off into the dark
Hell hath no…I’m just saying.
Bang, Bang Nancy Sinatra
I only know this song from Kill Bill and the naive part of me wants to believe that this is a song about unrequited love. Some of the other comments had some deeper meanings that I’m going to pretend that I hadn’t read. But bang, bang? She shot his butt after he broke her heart with his whispers of sweet nothings.
I shot you down, bang bang
You hit the ground , bang bang
That awful sound, bang bang
I used to shoot you down
Burnin’ Down the House Talking Heads
Bad Girls Donna Summer
So as a kid I totally thought this song was about people who were just hanging out, you know like I did on the front steps as a kid. Ahem. This song is about the world’s oldest profession.
See them out on the street at night, walkin’
Picking up on all kinds of strangers
Chain Gang Sam Cooke
I am no criminal. I would have gotten caught.
