Ding, ding, ding! Voting has closed and it is time to announce the winners of my most and least romantic song lyrics contest!
In my last post, I recounted what I deemed the most and least romantic lyrics on earth, then challenged readers to come up with their own. I promised a prize to the winners, and this is it. Yessireebob, an entire Single Girl Blogging blog post dedicated exclusively to them, complete with plug. Hey, it ain’t much, but then again, I ain’t got much.
Although all submissions were worthy, I chose the two lyrics that evoked a visceral response — that is, gave me that funny feeling in my tummy. And no, it wasn’t the pasta with broccoli this time.
So here they is:
Most Romantic Song Lyrics:
“I feel wonderful because I see the love light in your eyes and the wonder of it all is that you just don’t realize how much I love you.”
– Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton
Something about “you just don’t realize how much I love you” sent a chill through my veins. I could just imagine these two people staring into each others’ eyes thinking that. I want to not realize how much someone loves me and be told that by that someone! See? I’m writing like gobbledygook over it!

Least Romantic Song Lyrics:
“I’m gonna tear your ass up like we just got married and you’re all mine now.”
– Bedroom Talk by The Starting Line
I’ve never heard this song, but my face crinkled up all icky-like when I read this. Tear your ass up? Ouchie wa wa! It makes me want to slap a chastity belt on my bum and throw away the key. This girlie is not a fan of the backdoor action and I sure as hell don’t want it torn up.

Second place goes to everyone else, because I’m diplomatic that way. You are all second best in my book. If anyone else wants to contribute, go right ahead, but you just won’t win anything (besides my love and adoration). Now I have to go find something to eat, Caitlin’s blog title is making me hungry.

Great song but a man couldn’t recite this text or sing it during the first 3 dates because direct expressions of love are inappropriate at that time. In the USA, a man couldn’t recite anything with “you don’t know how much I love you” during the first 8 dates without getting a restraining order put on him. 😉
Consider the PUA’s POV next time. 😉 I recommend the perfect date-night recital as such: you are walking with a woman by a body of water (beach)or open field. You ask if she saw the film “Titanic”. She says yes. You tell her to face the open space and put her arms out and you hold them out. That is when the man can sing
“Every night in my dreams, I see you, I feel you, that is how I know you go on. Far across the distance and spaces between us, you have come to show you go on. Near, far, whereever you are, I believe that the heart does go on, once more you open the door and you’re hear in my heart and my heart will go on and on.”
If that doesn’t get a man a kiss, I don’t know what will. It can be followed up on the next date with the same maneuver and this “You’re hear, there’s nothing I fear and I know that the heart does go on. We’ll stay forever this way. You are safe in my heart and my heart will go on and on.”
Now for the least romantic song: “Everything step you make I’ll be watching you.” That song is an embarrassment.
Oy, I’m so honored! I always knew my secret love for ‘Warped Tour bands’ would pay off. 🙂
The Starting Line is one of my favorite bands! Despite the totally unromanticness of that line they do have some other songs that definitely make up for the lack of romanticness of that song! haha.
(sneering, hands in pockets) congratulations to the winners.
