Detectives Beyond Borders has been having a bit of fun with music lately, specifically, homicidal music. This post on Crime Songs has some great examples.
It's surprising how many song lyrics contain a murder or two, and some are downright chilling -
This segment I remembered from a Shawn Colvin song Sunny came home:
Sunny came home with a list of names
She didn't believe in transcendence
It's time for a few small repairs she said
Sunny came home with a vengeance
This particularly nasty little number one contributer tossed in, is from a song by Eminem:
It's about a guy who takes his little daughter along while he takes "mama for a wittle walk along the pier.
"Baby, don't cry honey, don't get the wrong idea
Mama's too sweepy to hear you screamin in her ear (ma-maa!)
That's why you can't get her to wake, but don't worry
Da-da made a nice bed for mommy at the bottom of the lake."
So here's the pop quiz...
Can any of the punters out there think of any examples of New Zealand songs that contain lyrics with a murderous bent?
