Scary Song Lyrics, Index

Here's a couple of the most recent entries...

Bon Jovi's, "You Give Love a Bad Name"
The Lyrics:
An angel's smile is what you sell
You promise me Heaven, then put me through hell
Chains of love got a hold on me
When passion's a prison, you can't break free
Oh, you're a loaded gun, yeah
Oh, there's nowhere to run
No one can save me
The damage is done
Why:
Jon apparently wrote this after he broke up with Diane Lane so it sounds like she made him miserable

Ray Stevens', "It's Me Again Margaret"
The Lyrics:
And when I get out, Margaret I'm going to come over there with an egg beater
And a live chicken, and some peach preserves. We'll have a good old time, Margaret.
Why:
What a disappointment this song was to me. I was lured into listening to it, supposing it had some tie-in to the book "Are You There, God? It's Me Again, Margaret."
