The Horror Honeys: Revenge Wednesday Jam - 'Run for Your Life'

Revenge Wednesday Jam - 'Run for Your Life'



Well I'd rather see you dead, little girl
Than to be with another man
You better keep your head, little girl
Or I won't know where I am
You better run for your life if you can, little girl
Hide your head in the sand little girl
Catch you with another man
That's the end ah little girl


The Beatles, man. Those four crazy lads from Liverpool were a lot more fucked up than people give them credit for. We've covered this topic before, but the dark depths of Lennon and McCarthy don't just end with little Maxwell and his silver hammer. No... a closer listen to the lyrics for "Run for Your Life" from Rubber Soul should leave any self-respecting woman reacting like this:



Yes, "Run for Your Life" is loaded with so much domestic violence, jealousy, and downright terrifying threat of murder, that Eminem wishes he wrote it. And while John Lennon admitted later that he actually hated the song and greatly regretted writing it, there are no takesies-backsies in the world of pop culture. This horrifying ode to murdering your girlfriend if she so much as looks at another dude is forever a part of the lexicon. But damn, is it catchy. ~RH
