Call For Submissions:
Additive Combinatorics Songs About Domestic Violence
Here are two fun songs I have been listening to recently.
Fight Like Apes – Lend Me Your Face
Florence and the Machine – Kiss With a Fist
They are both about girlfriends beating up boyfriends. GIRL-POWER and such!
Neither video had I seen before finding the links to support this entry and I feel they are both disappointing, though one is very Mike Figgis and the other is very, er, arousing in the Alexander Skarsgard way.
But what other songs are about domestic violence?
Obviously we have pretty much one in every three of EMINEM’s (he does love to rap about doing nasty things to Kim doesn’t he) but how about Rock, particularly Indie Rock?

Love Punch by The Chalets
“I’m coming home to a punch or a kiss, you tell me it’s your heart but I know it’s your fists! Okay!”
“I know you love me but you’re fucking crazy”
“You say we’re making love but I call that a rape! Alright!”

‘Yeah Oh Yeah’ by the Magnetic Fields:
I’ve enjoyed making you
miserable for years
found peace of mind in
playing on your fears
How I loved to catch your gold
and silver tears, but now my dear
What a dark and dreary life
Are you reaching for a knife?
Could you really kill your wife?
Yeah! Oh, yeah!
Oh, I die, I die, I die!
So it’s over, you and I
Was my whole life just a lie?
Yeah! Oh, yeah!

It’s only OK if it’s girlfriends beating up boyfriends in comically Tom and Jerry style.
Otherwise it’s just, er, bad?

I’m not sure if Stainless Steel by iLiKETRAiNS counts, since it’s about a domestic murder. Well, it’s a violent murder, but that’s not really what we understand by ‘domestic violence’ as a phrase. However:

I was going to say Lovepunch! Jimbob BEAT me to it. The PUNCH, that is.
‘Fistfuls Of Love’ by Antony & The Johnsons. ‘There She Goes Again’ by The Velvet Underground. Indie enough for you?

Hi just wanted to say how much I love Hot Chip! They’re album is a real grower but good. Thanks.

Grower, noun. A bad album that you force yourself to like because it’s by Radiohead.

James Hughes is going to see that and something somewhere will explode spectacularly.

Helen Love – Beat him up.
Who’s that boy who made you blue?
Stuck those bruises all over you?
We’re gonna find him soon and beat him up,
Just because he cries sometimes,
When he’s kicked your face and smashed your spine,
We’re going out to find him and beat him up
