(note, drink tickets are a plus) It’ll progressively get worse if they start recording, you’re going to have to put it on your Ipod. They’re probably going to cheat on you Picture this: You spend the night with the lead singer of a band. In college I had that guys freaking HEADSHOT autographed by my bed. You have to endure people telling you that the songs are super good, when you know that they’re lying.Several times I’ve been listening to my ‘pod on random and thought “WHAT THE HELL IS THIS! He makes you dinner, you drink wine, you talk secrets all night. The next night you see a random friend at one of his shows… You’re probably going to have to crawl onto the stage and deliver bottles of water to the members mid-set. Sometimes you find yourself totally overcome with the urge to sing along at the top of your lungs and there are never more than 5 people doing this.
I can tell you right now that the green room at CBGBs was a cesspool, and they don’t get much better anywhere else. When DL broke JBJ’s heart he wrote “You give love a bad name” and back to the old gf. Having him leave and come back, or having one of his most awesome songs be about ? They’re going to write songs about you Both good and bad. One was written post break up and is called something like “love heartbroken” and has lyrics that sound something like “she was awesome but I freaking hate her guts right now.” Thanks, I’ll send that one to my Mom. There is possibility for VERY embarrassing things As embarrassing as it is to have a mediocre boy band song written about you, it can get worse.
More often than not you’ll either find yourself sitting on a couch drinking free beers surrounded by smoking 19 year olds, or at the bar. And oh, turns out her friend is the lead singers GIRLFRIEND. One (which thank god I can’t find on line) was even on the radio in Vegas! I can’t remember the exact chorus but it goes something like “Missing you is like going days without water, not getting to hold you feels like torture, if this is what it’s like to be without your touch then I’ll seeee you in my dreaaaaaaaams.” I’m getting pangs of embarrassment as I type this, I used to play this song for people. You have to make small talk with other girlfriends of band members and there’s hardly anything to say.
At its worst you may start requesting “Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel every single day!
Someday you may even find yourself in Germany where you kiss a lunatic who happens to be the lead singer of a band.
Well, actually I’m going to list them for y’all to save some heartache, some money, and a crap ton of time. Of the 4 that I’m not currently dating, three are married and one has a child.
