But… while it would be wonderful to hear songs extolling your virtues, what about the flip-side?
Whether it’s relating a tragic tale, a horrible situation, or simply calling someone out for being a prick, here’s my pick of songs I’m really glad weren’t written about me.
*Not including The Hurricane by Bob Dylan, or Strange Relationship by Prince, as YouTube ain't having it. Grrr.
Delia's Gone - Johnny Cash
Jeremy - Pearl Jam
Needle and the Damage Done - Neil Young
Gary Gilmore's Eyes - The Adverts
He Hit Me (And It Felt Like A Kiss) - The Crystals
Unhappy Birthday - The Smiths
The Kindness of Strangers - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Mr Ambulance Driver - The Flaming Lips
Your Racist Friend - They Might Be Giants
I'm gonna have that stuck in my head all day now...
