One of the most requested love songs of all time is a song called "The one I Love" by R.E.M. In my day people would make love compilation tapes and CD's for their significant others with this song included. Ironically, "The One I Love" is not a love song, its a song about using others and then leaving them behind to move on to another person. The telling lyrics being "A simple prop to occupy my time" and "Another prop has occupied my time" There was a song released in 2001 (I think) called "Follow Me" by Uncle Kracker. People would use this song for romantic purposes while missing the fact that the song was about a man encouraging a woman to have an extra-marital affair with him. What other songs can you think of that people have obviously misunderstood.
