Threesome: Stalker-iffic love songs

December 12, 2008

[embedded YouTube video; if you can’t watch it, click here]

Here are three songs that are frequently construed as love songs, but are really creepy stalker anthems;  this follows up on a conversation with Nick in this comment thread.

The video above is for the Freezepop song “Stakeout,” which is actually a stalker song. But really, how creepy could being stalked by Liz Enthusiasm (who also did the cool animation) be?

Incidentally, if you happen to be in the Boston area, Freezepop are playing tonight (Friday, December 12th) at the Middle East Downstairs, along with fellow z=z faves The Bon Savants.

If you have a favorite stalker-slash-love song, please share it in the comments!
