Top Five is a potentially ongoing new feature here at LGM.*  Instead of beginning with something more obviously topical, such as Top Five Fascist Dictators, or Top Five Stolen Elections, let us turn today to the calmer and more lyrical waters of Top Five Songs About Adultery.

(1)  Billy Paul, Me and Mrs. Jones

(2) Dolly Parton, Jolene

(3) Amazing Rhythm Aces, Third Rate Romance

(4) Steely Dan, Dirty Work

(5) Cheri Knight, If Wishes Were Horses

 

*H/T Nick Hornby

People worry about kids playing with guns, and teenagers watching violent videos; we are scared that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands, of songs about broken hearts and rejection and pain and misery and loss. The unhappiest people I know, romantically speaking, are the ones who like pop music the most; and I don’t know whether pop music has caused this unhappiness, but I do know that they’ve been listening to the sad songs longer than they’ve been living the unhappy lives.
