Love Me Dead

I heard this song for the first time watching a collection of music videos on Fuse. I immediately fell in love with the slightly psychotic music video - what can I say? I appreciate an artist or group who can pull off crazy, and Ludo does it very well. Besides the entertaining and kinda skitzo music video, this song is very fun to listen to. The lyrics, directed from a broken heart to an ex-lover and speaking about his mixed feelings about her, use creative word choice and plenty of metaphors to portray the message of the song. The melodic vocals have a cabaret-type essence about them, with a couple of short-lived guitar solos thrown in to give us just enough rock to keep things interesting. All in all, a very enjoyable song to listen to, and the video makes me smile every time.
Here's Love Me Dead by Ludo.

Ludo - Love Me Dead Music Video



Love Me Dead
Ludo

Love me cancerously
Like a salt-sore soaked in the sea
'High-maintenance' means
You're a gluttonous queen
Narcissistic and mean

Kill me romantically
Fill my soul with vomit
Then ask me for a piece of gum
Bitter and dumb
You're my sugarplum
You're awful, I love you!

She moves through moonbeams slowly
She wears me down to bones in bed
Must be the sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead!

You're a faith-healer on T.V.
You're an office park without any trees
Corporate and cold
Gushing for gold
Leave me alone

You suck so passionately
You're a parasitic, psycho, filthy creature
Finger-bangin' my heart
You call me up drunk
Does the fun ever start?
You're hideous and sexy!

She moves through moonbeams slowly
She knows just how to hold me
And when her edges soften
Her body is my coffin
I know she drains me slowly
She wears me down to bones in bed

Must be the sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead!
Love me dead!

Love me cancerously
Brrrot-dot-da-d-da-da!
How's your new boy?
Does he know about me?
You've got the mark of the beast
You're born of a jackal! You're beautiful!

She moves through moonbeams slowly
She knows just how to hold me
And when her edges soften
Her body is my coffin
I know she drains me slowly
She wears me down to bones in bed

Wha' 'bout that sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead!
Love me dead!
Oh, love me dead!

Very cool! Love the strange bipolar, happy-psycho feel of it. And the man has an amazing voice! Very cool :)

Happy-psycho. Woah. That was like, the perfect adjective to describe this song.
I may have to start using that! If you don't mind ... lol
Glad you liked the song :)
