Alright, class. Last week we covered similes. This week: metaphors!
Now, I’m not going to attempt to compile a playlist of all songs that use metaphors because we’d be here all day. Instead, this playlist is for songs that use metaphors in an annoying way (at least, in my opinion.)
For example, Christina Aguilera has a song all about… stationery. Some choice lyrics include:
“If I was a ruler I’ll set you straight”
“When your love hits it sticks me like a stapler”
We also have Kelly Rowland singing about laundry, Nick Jonas and elevators, and as for Justin Timberlake’s Supplies, well I’m not really sure what that’s about.
What other songs come to mind that beat a metaphor to death?
This site is dedicated to fun playlist themes! Have we missed a song that should be included in this playlist? Comment below to let us know — we’ll add it!
