Not that I’m aware of, but I think it’s cool that he wrote about you in a nice way. And why wouldn’t you be an inspiration of some kind? You help shape his life in some way.

I think my ex wrote a song about me too.  It called me a bitch, although surprisingly it wasn’t all that derogatory.  I’m not 100% sure it’s about me, but it does kind of reference some stuff and he didn’t have many exs.  It made me feel a little weird for a while.

We aren’t on speaking terms and it’s been a long time ago.  I should be thankful he’s not famous, I guess.  LOL

@cirk:  Well, if it becomes popular, I hope it’s less annoying than Hey There Delilah.

My Fiance is a song writer and hasn’t used me as a muse for any of his songs. Well, not really, but a little bit? I mean one song was talking about “her voice is calling my name” but the theme of the song was about something else. When I asked Fiance he said “well yeah right there you are in it but otherwise it’s about xyz.

I read a book about this exact situation recently, but I can’t for the life of me remember what it was called.

@cirk:  It was driving me crazy so I’ve been trying to figure it out. And I did. 🙂 It’s not exactly your situation, but similar enough! 

It’s “Dedication” by Emma McLaughlin and Nicole Krauss.

When I was in high school I, like many others in my school had a major crush on a guy who was a real player – let’s call him “Bobby.”  He took me out just often enough to keep me interested and only years later did I find out that he would drop me off by my ridiculously early curfew (10:30 on weekends – thanks, Mom!) and then go pick up one of of the “hott” girls from another high school.  I was sure I had his heart though, because he had written a song about me – it had my name in it and everything!  So fast forward to one day in the girls’ locker room when we’re all changing, and one of the cheerleaders is regaling her BFFs with tales of her wild night out with Bobby over the weekend.  And then she proudly boasted “He even wrote a song about me!” and started singing it.  About a dozen of us joined her in singing it word for word, inserting our own names as he had done when he used it with us.  Completely horrifying at the time, but so funny when I look back on it now!  Thanks for the reminder, and I’m glad your song was actually written for you.  How flattering to be someone’s muse in real life!

That’s kinda cool.  If it starts getting played on the radio, let us know.

My high school boyfriend did that, too! It was about the end of our relationship :p We’re still on very good terms and he knows I’ve always supported his music, so I don’t think he even thought twice about it. He wrote it right after we split and surprisingly it’s not mean, thank goodness.
