I forget which article about the end of Foob I read it in, but one of them made reference to those of us who love to hate the strip, which brought the song I Love to Hate You by Erasure to mind. It keeps popping back into my head, so I thought I'd share the lyrics and maybe that doesn't sound so disturbing to those around me when I have to start singing it under my breath in public. *evil smile*

I'm crazy flowing over with ideas
A thousand ways to woo a lover so sincere?
Love and hate what a beautiful combination
Sending shivers up and down my spine

For every Casanova that appears
My sense of hesitation disappears
Love and hate what a beautiful combination
Sending shivers up and down my spine

And the lovers that you sent for me
Didn't come with any satisfaction guarantee
So I return them to the sender
And the note attached will read
How I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you

Oh you really still expect me to believe
Every single letter I receive
Sorry you what a shameful situation
Sending shivers up and down my spine

I like to read murder mystery
I like to know the killer isn't me
Love and hate what a beautiful combination
Sending shivers make me quiver
Feel it sliver up and down my spine


And then there's Sucks to be You. A guy I knew years ago burned some CDs for me with music I wanted and this was among the three 'bonus' tracks he put on the second one. Considering the other two were Hold You in my Arms by Bad Boys Blue and a dance version of Truly Madly Deeply, I wasn't sure what to make of Sucks to be You, so I tried not to think about. ;p There are two version I found lyrics for and they both seem aprops, so I'll post the lyrics for both.

Sucks to be You by Danielle Peck

I tried to love you baby
But I couldn't make you happy
And it just really shouldn't be so hard
I gave and you kept taking
You made some big mistakes and
You were always careless with my heart

I'm happier now
Ain't it funny how
All it took was leaving you
To finally feel good again
You say you're sorry now
That you figured out
Just what it was that you had to lose
Well it sucks to be you

You used your last chance so
I went and found romance oh
You really just can't stand it can you
You see the smile on my face
And it really drives you crazy
Just to see how much better off I am without you

I'm happier now
Ain't it funny how
All it took was leaving you
To finally feel good again
You say you're sorry now
That you figured out
Just what it was that you had to lose
Well it sucks to be you

Don't worry baby
I'm sure you'll find someone too
Yeah, who'll put up with you


Sucks to be You by Prozzak (the one I was given)

[Tamara] - Sucks To Be You
[Simon] - I know, I know
[Tamara] - Sucks To Be You
[Simon] - I know it's true
I'm a bastard if it's true
If the thing she did to me
Is what I did to you
I'm a bastard if it's true
And I guess it's true
[Tamara] - Sucks To Be You
[Simon] - I know, I know
[Tamara] - Sucks To Be You
[Simon] - I know it's true
You need to know I finally understand
And I gotta get in touch with you now
But I can't
I just want to tell you I'm sorry

I'm a bastard if it's true
If the thing she did to me
Was what I did to you
I'm a bastard if it's true
And I guess it's true
[Tamara] - Sucks To Be You
[Simon] - I know, I know
[Tamara] - Sucks To Be You
[Simon] - I know it's true
You need to know I finally understand
And I gotta get in touch with you now
But I can't
I wish I could have made you happy
But I'm a bastard

I'm not saying that I wanted you to stay
But tonight I feel like driving my car to LA
Just so you can see me crying
Cause I'm a bastard if it's true
Yeah and I guess it's true
[Tamara] - Sucks To Be You
[Tamara] - Sucks To Be You
[Simon] - I know it's true
[Tamara] - Sucks To Be You
[Simon] - I know, I know
[Tamara] - Sucks To Be You
[Simon] - I know it's true
