Rihanna - Unfaithful

I really like this song. None of her other stuff really does much for me, but I like this one song a lot. I suppose it's a guilty pleasure for a guy who spends most of his music time with U2/Beatles/Radiohead/Led Zeppelin/etc. But I think the song is catchy(though the chorus may or may not bare resemblance to that of Rob Thomas's 'Lonely No More'), the lyrics are better than you would expect from this kind of artist, and I like her voice. Specifically the fact that she didn't oversing the song where she could have. I guarantee that if Mariah had sung this song, she would have destroyed it with her incessant banshee screaming.

Anyway, Rihanna's "Unfaithful". I like it. And I know I'll get flamed by someone.

Story of my life
Searching for the right
But it keeps avoiding me
Sorrow in my soul
Cause it seems that wrong
Really loves my company

He's more than a man
And this is more than love
The reason that the sky is blue
But clouds are rolling in
Because I'm gone again
And to him I just can't be true

And I know that he knows I'm unfaithful
And it kills him inside
To know that I am happy with some other guy
I can see him dying

I don't wanna do this anymore
I don't wanna be the reason why
Everytime I walk out the door
I see him die a little more inside
I don't wanna hurt him anymore
I don't wanna take away his life
I don't wanna be...
A murderer

I feel it in the air
As I'm doing my hair
Preparing for another date
A kiss up on my cheek
He's here reluctantly
As if I'm gonna be out late
I say I won't be long
Just hanging with the girls
A lie I didn't have to tell
Because we both know
Where I'm about to go
And we know it very well

Cause I know that he knows I'm unfaithful
And it kills him inside
To know that I am happy with some other guy
I can see him dying

I don't wanna do this anymore
I don't wanna be the reason why
Everytime I walk out the door
I see him die a little more inside
I don't wanna hurt him anymore
I don't wanna take away his life
I don't wanna be...
A murderer

Our Love, his trust
I might as well take a gun and put it to his head
Get it over with
I don't wanna do this
Anymore
Uh
Anymore (anymore)

I don't wanna do this anymore
I don't wanna be the reason why
Everytime I walk out the door
I see him die a little more inside
And I don't wanna hurt him anymore
I don't wanna take away his life
I don't wanna be...
A murderer (a murderer)

No no no no

Yeah yeah yeah

I like her upbeat singles more. Her voice is too nasal to me to stand up on a ballad.

Then again, I'm not a big fan of R&B-flavored ballads anyway.

Eh, I don't personally like it, I think the lyrics are a bit cheesy (I mean, come on, she doesn't want to be a murderer), but whatever floats your boat. And, you're allowed to have some guilty pleasures...

Hate this song. S.O.S. was better.
