    Default Respond to this thread. Up your post count. Free a flounder.

    I just finished an 8 hour drive. Then I drank a lot of beer. Now i'm in my hotel room, and I should probably go to sleep.
    But first, I need to share something with you all.

    How weird is it that there are so many songs with a guy singing about how his girl left him... but he's sure that she'll remember the good times and come back. I realize that maybe this is something that's unique to country songs, but it's bugging me. I mean, he must have done SOMETHING to make her leave in the first place, but they kind of just... gloss over that point. And on a related note, why are there so many songs about guys who screw up and then the woman leaves and the guy sings about how sorry he is and how she should come back 'cause he's better now. Reminds me of all those serial wife beaters. "It's okay, he's changed. This time, for REAL! The last seventeen times, I didn't believe it, but this time...."

    I don't know why this bothers me, but is this really the kind of message people are intending to send? Maybe i'm seeing it all wrong. Maybe the songwriters didn't mean it that way. Maybe it's the beer.

    I know that this post will probably be quickly shuffled down to page 9 as noone replies to it, but what else is there to do on a wednesday in the middle of the night, but talk about useless crap?

    There's no post count in off-topic? Really?

    ps, this is a test of post count.

    EDIT - NO LIES! You are correct, sir! =(

    I think that more people should own up to their own mistakes. And I think that more songs should reflect that trend. And I think that I am going to have one more beer before bed. And I think that i'm going to respond to every Off Topic post on this page.

    Also, I can't believe that some people are
