Do you wonder why women yearn for the fedora-wearing men of the 1950s, who presented fresh red roses at the beginning of dates and who whispered sweet nothings about eyes looking like moons and holding your hand?
Somewhere around 1994 it all went to hell when Boyz II Men started singing about making “love,” which promptly led to muchos songs about f*cking, licking you from head to toe and doing things that can only be described with undecipherable symbols like %$@*$-ing.
While there are definitely some romantic modern tracks out there that collectivecadenza is forgetting (try the James Blunt, Jason Mraz crew), I think they hit the nail on the head. Romance is dying.
It goes both ways though people! So if you’re opting for a homemade, candlelit dinner, forget about Enrique Iglesias “Tonight (I’m Fucking You)” and go for Justin Bieber’s “Die In Your Arms” instead. It will be appreciated.
