I’ve had a few friends over the years reccord me being drunk and play fighting with them. They’ve used it in their break up songs. 

I find it absolutely hilarious. My guy friends are aweseom lol!

FH wrote me a poem back in high school. I didn’t have the heart to throw it out when we broke up, so I stored it in a folder. It’s still there. I’m really glad now I didn’t throw it away, but it’s so corny that I can’t even bear to read it.

While I can’t relate exact to your situation, my music producer boyfriend has a song about one of his exes. When I first heard the song I thought it was so beautiful. I fell in love with it. We were fairly new then and he told me it was based on a movie he watched. After further conversation and a few comments here and there, I realized that it was actually wrote about a girl he used to date. It wasn’t a serious relationship at all, and this was about 10-15 years ago, way before we ever met, but I still hate the thought of it. I cant even listen to what was once my favorite song of his anymore. Ive mentioned indirectly how a song he would write about an ex would upset me, and he took great offense to that because he put so much work into his music career and everything along the way shaped who he is, and that then he would feel like he couldn’t play anything for me (not that his other songs are about exs) because he’d feel like I’m judging him. Sorry, didn’t mean to hijack your post haha, it just reminded me of this and I wanted to share in hopes it would make me feel better lol.

@cirk:  Good to know it wasn’t a song like Alanis’ “You ought to know!” LOL

One of my exes wrote a lot of music about/for me while we were together and right after we split. He married the next girl he dated so I feel confident he isn’t writing or recording about me anymore.

Another one of my friends would write poetry for me all of time. I saved all of his poems and I am glad I did. He passed away in our early 20s. My first birthday after, almost a year to the day after he died, was hard because every year he gave me a poem. His mom searched through his journals, found a poem he hadn’t sent it yet, and gave it to me on my birthday. Love that woman <3

I have a musician friend with whom I’ve had kind of a strange relationship over the years. We flirted pretty intensely when I was between relationships but it never went beyond that, and we’re still friends despite several misunderstandings and periods of silence. Anyway, he’s written songs about so many girls but I’m not one of them, as far as I know. I am mentioned in the thank you’s on one of his CD’s.

My Fiance is in a band and starting his own studio. For this last Valentine’s Day he wrote and recorded a song for me. It’s really good and made me feel awesome, haha 🙂 I’ve dated a lot of musicians but he’s the first (that I know of) to write anything about me 😛

Fiance wrote a song about me. Correction, music about me. He didn’t put lyrics to it because that’d ‘ruin it’. By far, though, it is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard.

Thankfully, none of my exes have the ability to sing well, although one of them thinks he can. Haha.

Same here: two songs, though. I know they are both about me because he told me so. One of the songs is a sweet song, but the other one, not so much. Oh well. They’re great songs so I can’t complain.

My high school ex made a short film about me.  It was really, really weird… like abstract almost.  The title references Dante’s Inferno, which is about hell, and at the end a girl in a dress exactly like my grad dress leads the guy into the desert, and leaves him there to die.

OOOOOKAY.

The funny thing is that he totally dumped ME in highschool, mostly because I wanted to have sex and he wasnt ready…so not sure how I “tortured” him so much.

@cirk:  

I actually think that is pretty cool. It must be a little weird to see the reflection of your relationship that way from his point of view, but nice, too, to know that you were involved in a part of his life that was meaningful enough for him to write a song about it.  

I’m not a fan of the sad-creepy ex “I want you back” creative endeavors. I find them embarrassing, more than anything else. But this is different.

So It’s the song “Cool” by Gwen Stefani?

That’s great! It’s a nice gesture, I think. You are a great and happy part of his memories 🙂

Well Gwen Stefani wrote many songs about her ill-fated love with her fellow band mate and she is happily married now….and her ex and her are still close friends…not that I am comparing the two….sounds like he regrets how things ended and the song maybe his way of apologizing to you, either way it’s cool that he wrote a song about you…now you can claim that you had a song written about you.

My ex wrote songs for me and about me both while we were together and after we broke up.  People write songs to get their emotions out.  Taylor Swift writes tons of songs about her exes, isn’t that what she’s most famous for? lol.. I know it probably feels weird, but just don’t mention anything.  Compliment him on his EP (Whatever that means?) and move on.  There’s nothing to talk about, really, or feel awkward about.  I mean, I get it, but don’t dwell on it.  It’s cute that your relationship had an effect on him.  Take it as a compliment and move on.
