9 songs you love that are totally stalker anthems

Nothing says I love you like watching someone from the bushes. (*Note: That is a joke. Do not watch people from the bushes. We do not like it and we will get a restraining order.)

You’ve probably never thought of it this way before, but some of our favourite love songs are just downright creepy.

Not when sung by a hot young thing (although some of them are now hot older things), of course, but imagine that creepy guy at the gym who stares at you when you do your squats, or that inappropriate co-worker saying it to you and it just gets weird.

Really weird.

We’re sorry, but be prepared to have these songs ruined for you forever.

If by the end of this you still think we’re being seriously paranoid, read the lyrics again, but imagine it being said by Norman Bates from Psycho. Not so romantic now, is it?


Call me maybe – Carly Rae Jepsen



Creepiest lyrics: Where do you think you're going, baby? and Before you came into my life/ I missed you so bad/ And you should know that



I want you to want me – Cheap Trick



Creepiest lyrics: I want you to want me/ I need you to need me/ I'd love you to love me/ I'm beggin' you to beg me

You’re beautiful – James Blunt



Creepiest lyrics: She smiled at me on the subway/ She was with another man /But I won't lose no sleep on that/ 'Cause I've got a plan.

One way or another – Blondie



Creepiest lyrics: I will drive past your house/ And if the lights are all down / I'll see who's around


She will be loved – Maroon 5




Creepiest lyrics: I don't mind spending every day/ Out on your corner in the pouring rain



Every breath you take – The Police



Creepiest lyrics: Every breath you take / Every move you make / Every bond you break / Every step you take / I’ll be watching you and  Every single day / Every word you say / Every game you play / Every night you stay / I’ll be watching you

Brown Eyes – Danny K



Creepiest lyrics: There's nothing I won't do/ I got to get to you somehow and Pretty brown eyes/You know I see you/ It’s a disguise/ The way you treat me

Indigo Girl – Watershed



Creepiest line: I want you to be mine tonight and ‘cause every night I realise I need you close to me/ But every night I compromise/ I lie here all alone/ I long for you

I don’t want to miss a thing – Aerosmith



Creepiest lyrics: I could stay awake just to hear you breathing / Watch you smile while you are sleeping/ While you're far away and dreaming
