Have you heard the newest song from the country band Little Big Town called ‘Girl Crush’? Well I just did and I have to say that the lyrics and subject matter of the song are concerning and I would never want my girls to listen to such garbage.

Yea, the melody may be nice and the instrumental value is wonderful, but there is something wrong with those lyrics.

The basis of the song is this : One woman is obsessing over another woman because she wants to be her, only to gain the attention of the man she is with. 

Now what on earth is this teaching the young woman of the world? As a parent, if my daughters felt that they wanted to be someone else just because of a man, I would tell them ‘no man is worth changing who you are‘, ‘never change who you truly are for anyone and if a man doesn’t like you for you than he isn’t worth your time.’

We live in a society where so many young woman/girls fight with self esteem issues due to the way our society views woman (sadly), through advertising, marketing and the media. Having a song being played on the radio, blasted around the net and shared around via social media depicting a woman who wants to be someone else to gain the attention of a man, is ludicrous.

Could Little Big Town not write a song that empowers woman? A song that depicts a woman who could care less about this man if this man doesn’t like her for her? Sounds to me like they song was created for nothing more than attention and money. With gay rights in full upward swing any song by a super popular band with a title like ‘Girl Crush’ is going to no doubt, be wildly played and shared right now. Even though the song has nothing to do with being gay, I would bet the marketing folks for the band new exactly what they were doing.

Take a look at the lyrics below and let us know what you think about this song.

I got a girl crush
Hate to admit it but,
I got a hard rush
It’s slowing down
I got it real bad
Want everything she has
That smile and that midnight laugh
She’s giving you now

I want to taste her lips
Yeah, ’cause they taste like you
I want to drown myself
In a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blonde hair
I want her magic touch
Yeah, ’cause maybe then
You’d want me just as much
I got a girl crush
I got a girl crush

I don’t get no sleep
I don’t get no peace
Thinking about her
Under your bed sheets
The way that she’s whispering
The way that she’s pulling you in
Lord knows I’ve tried,
I can’t get her off my mind

I want to taste her lips
Yeah, ’cause they taste like you
I want to drown myself
In a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blonde hair
I want her magic touch
Yeah, ’cause maybe then
You’d want me just as much
I got a girl crush
I got a girl crush
Hate to admit it but
I got a hard rush,
It ain’t slowing down.
