For the Spanish speakers, Ricardo Arjona (the Guatemalan Billy Joel) has a song about him stalking a soapie star and not quite getting that she isn't her character.

Virtually any love song about unrequited love is a psycho stalker song, really.

This is true. It all boils down to "boohoo you don't like me anymore." I, of course, am more of the opinion of Pink:

So so what?
I'm still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And i don't need you
And guess what
I'm having more fun
And now that we're done
I'm gonna show you tonight
I'm alright, I'm just fine
And you're a tool
So so what?
I am a rockstar
I got my rock moves
And i don't want you tonight

and now for something completely different ...

... somebody's cheesy amateur video (maybe at least xoB will get a kick out of it)



My fantasy has turned to madness
And all my goodness
Has turned to badness
My need to possess you
Has consumed my soul
My life is trembling
I have no control

I will have you
Yes, I will have you
I will find a way and I will have you
Like a butterfly
A wild butterfly
I will collect you and capture you

I believe Amy Lee wrote this about her stalker.

Or "you never liked me in the first place or didn't know that I existed" but I think there's a difference between the two.

Ricardo Arjona has two songs-one is the song I mentioned previously about the guy who falls in love with the soapie star who isn't too keen about his attentions ("La chica de la tele") and the other one is "Te conozco" about being rejected by someone who he had been involved with, the basic premise of the song being "I know you so much better than he does. Therefore, I'm a better bet."

Wow. That one is scary intense.

It occurs to me that Godsmack "Keep Away" is the exact opposite of a psycho stalker song.

I'm back on Queensryche kick.

Operation: Mindcrime. How about a progressive metal/opera concept album (about politics, corruption, drug addiction, religion, murder, and insanity) that has radio-friendly singles and goes RIAA platinum (million+ sales).

Burn my thighs, spread in sacrificial right
The hallowed altar burns my flesh once more tonight

Don't turn your back on my disgrace
The blood of Christ can't heal my wounds, so deep
The sins of man are all I taste
Can't spit the memory from my mind
holy ƒuck

Geoff Tate is absolutely one of the best male vocalists. Technically and expressively perfect.

Since it's October and all...

A Halloween-ish, stalkery-type song. One of my favorites:



Skullcrusher Mountain

Welcome to my secret lair on Skullcrusher Mountain
I hope that you've enjoyed your stay so far
I see you've met my assistant Scarface
His appearance is quite disturbing
But I assure you he's harmless enough
He's a sweetheart, calls me master
And he has a way of finding pretty things and bringing them to me

I'm so into you
But I'm way too smart for you
Even my henchmen think I'm crazy
I'm not surprised that you agree
If you could find some way to be
A little bit less afraid of me
You'd see the voices that control me from inside my head
Say I shouldn't kill you yet

I made this half-pony half-monkey monster to please you
But I get the feeling that you don't like it
What's with all the screaming?
You like monkeys, you like ponies
Maybe you don't like monsters so much
Maybe I used too many monkeys
Isn't it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?

I'm so into you
But I'm way too smart for you
Even my henchmen think I'm crazy
I'm not surprised that you agree
If you could find some way to be
A little bit less afraid of me
You'd see the voices that control me from inside my head
Say I shouldn't kill you yet

Picture the two of us alone inside my golden submarine
While up above the waves my doomsday squad ignites the atmosphere
And all the fools who live their foolish lives may find it quite explosive
But it won't mean half as much to me if I don't have you here

You know it isn't easy living here on Skullcrusher Mountain
Maybe you could cut me just a little slack
Would it kill you to be civil?
I've been patient,
I've been gracious
And this mountain is covered with wolves
Hear them howling, my hungry children
Maybe you should stay and have another drink and think about me and you

I'm so into you
But I'm way too smart for you
Even my henchmen think I'm crazy
I'm not surprised that you agree
If you could find some way to be
A little bit less afraid of me
You'd see the voices that control me from inside my head
Say I shouldn't kill you yet
I shouldn't kill you yet
I shouldn't kill you yet
