Romance isn't just for humans.
They're everywhere: Sappy love songs dedicated to a man or woman. Isn't about time animals and intimate objects had their chance to have a romantic ballad written about them? Well, maybe these popular singers thought so.
7 Love Songs NOT Written About People
Cat Stevens loves his mutt!
Instead of changing his name from to Yusuf Islam, maybe the former Cat Stevens shoulda changed his name to Dog Stevens. Dude loooooves his dog.
I love my dog as much as I love you.
But you may fade, my dog will always come through.
Lyle Lovett goes for flightess birds!
Perhaps the only song in the history of the world that celebrates those waddling arctic fowl. And why not? At least they know how to wear a suit.
I don't go for fancy cars
For diamond rings
Or movie stars
I go for penguins
Oh Lord I go for penguins
Green stuff get Barrett Strong hot!
Barrett Strong knows money is WAY more lasting than romantic love. Unless of course you've put your money in a 401K.
Your lovin' give me such a thrill
But your lovin' don't pay my bills
Money don't get everything it's true,
What it don't get I can't use
Ernie digs plastic water fowl!
Just because he's a puppet, doesn't mean he can't have passionate feelings for his bath toys. Wonder if Bert ever gets jealous?
Rubber Duckie you're the one
You make bath time lots of fun
Rubber Duckie you're so fine and I'm lucky that you're mine
Rubber Duckie I'd like a whole pond of you
Rubber Duckie I'm awfully fond of you
Amanda Palmer only has eyes for her mechanical dude!
Is the lead singer of the Dresden Dolls singing about a battery-operated boy -- or a battery-operated "toy"? You decide.
Sitting on the shelf he is just a toy
But I turn him on and he comes to life
That is why I want a coin-operated boy
Springsteen is Cadillac crazy!
Classic love story: Boy meets girl, boy meets Cadillac, boy dumps girl.
Well baby you know you bug me
There ain't no secret 'bout that
Well come on over here and hug me
Baby I'll spill the facts
Well honey it ain't your money
'Cause baby I got plenty of that
I love you for your pink Cadillac
Donavan has a crush on his clothes!
Apparently 60's pop star Donovan had a ton of freaky fetishes including his shirt, pants and shoes -- and the overuse of the word "groovy."
Do you have a shirt that you really love
One that you feel so groovy in?
