Several of the Songs in the Chart, Described Here:
Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under, by Shania Twain
This one is for the guy whose been found out. She knows what you’ve been up to, the gig is up. Don’t be calling her for company when you’re lonely, just head over to your cheating gal; So next time you’re lonely – It ends with the final kiss off, ‘Don’t call on me, Try the operator, Maybe she’ll be free’.
How Do You Like Me Now, by Toby Keith
This is the ideal song for the guy who couldn’t get the girl in high school but then makes it big, comes back to his school and town to ask the girl, ‘how do you like me now’. The sarcastic tone makes it very entertaining especially when the ‘girl’ who choose ‘the popular guy’ is now the unhappy one.
Before He Cheats, by Carrie Underwood
I’m sure most people know all about this revenge break-up song by now! ‘I dug my key into the side of his pretty little souped-up four wheel drive’….yep, maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats. Unfortunately, or fortunately depending upon your perspective, there are a few women who can relate to this song!
Baggage Claim, by Miranda Lambert
Love the lyrics to this song!…’She’s fed up of draggin’ around his sensitive ego, making sure that his bags arrive on time for the dog and pony show’… She’s had enough of his cheating around and tells him to ‘go ahead and take that business trip with that sweet little habit that he can’t kick’. The music and lyrics have you routing for her! Makes you want to help her with his baggage.
When God Fearin’ Women Get the Blues, by Martina McBride
This fun video and song is about when a fine southern woman snaps when she finds out her man’s been cheating. The video is done up as a news story presenting this woman as ‘wanted’ ….’I got a mustang it’ll do 80 you don’t have to be my baby, I’ve stirred my last batch of gravy’. If you’re looking for a ‘lot of snark and sauce’, this is the song.
Like We Never Loved at All, by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw
This beautiful and heartbreaking duet by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw sings about the rise and fall of a couple. She hears he’s doing fine, and she wonders, …does he even think of her…it’s actually painful to listen to with words like, ‘did you forget the magic, did you forget the passion’
Tonight I Wanna Cry, by Keith Urban
This terribly sad and beautiful song is about a guy whose lost the women he loves. He wasn’t the kind of man to open up and express himself, but now that she’s gone, tonight he wants to cry, alone suffering from the heartache of missing her. It’s brutally difficult to listen to, especially when it’s a man hurting this way.
