#SongStalker Game and Giveaway!

Yes, that’s right – what you see there is a hashtag! And a giveaway! What I want you to do is share the most creepy/stalkertastic song lyrics you can think of! You can tweet them (making sure you use the hashtag – and tag me too if you want to ensure I see it…) or leave them in the comments here. I’ll use randomizer.org to draw a winner.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to enter! Readers – I’ll give away a book, or a swag pack – whichever you want. (The swag pack might also have books… we’ll see.)

Authors – you can win your choice of the above, or if you want to use or see this as a promo opportunity, I can give away a copy of your book… or we can schedule a guest spot for you here! (Cuz um, that’s such a prize? :P)

Ready? Set? Go!

To start us off… I’ll share what I’ve already gotten.

Courtesy of author Jeannie Lin,

Come to my window. Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon.” #songstalker or rather stalker-invite

Now I’ve got you in my sights. I’ve got hungry eyes. One look at you and I can’t disguise” #songstalker”

And from poor SonomaLass who is such a good sport, playing around (with excellent contributions) even while recovering from surgery

I love you/You love me/We’re as happy as can be…Won’t you say you love me too?” #songstalker #scarypurpledinosaur

And from Raonaid Luckwell

Working late in diner Citylight, I see that you get home alright Make sure that you can’t see me, #songstalker

And from myself?

“It is useless to resist it…He’s handling the money/He’s serving the food/He knows about your party/He is calling you” #songstalker

I also love “you can run, you can hide, but you can’t escape my love” #songstalker

“So come to me my love/I’ll tap into your strength and drain it dry/Can never have enough/ For youu I’d burn the length and breadth of sky” #songstalker

“Inside the labyrinth walls/There lies a tiny child who sleeps alone…this child I would destroy/If you tried to set her free” #songstalker

“I wanna be there when you’re feeling high/ I wanna be there when you wanna die…I wanna be there when you go insane” #stalkersong

And the tweet that started it all…

Up for a silly game? Tweet most stalkertastic song lyrics. #songstalker ? e.g. “If I was invisible then I could just watch you in your room”

Got questions? Leave them in the comments. I’ll keep this open for a few days. (Possibly until next Tuesday? If so then if you tweet me, please @reply me because Twitter clears out hashtag results pretty quickly. Thanks!)

Oh – and … this one is explained by one of the artists herself…

ETA: Oh right- and of course, I’m also doing this giveaway because it’s one of my most favoritest people’s birthday every… JenB! So everyone ALSO please wish JenB a very happy birthday! <3

ETA2: I changed it to leaving a comment to enter because I can’t keep track of twitter. The hashtag results vary too much, and the @reply goes haywire too easily. :X

    This song has always given me the blahs!
    “…every step you make,
    every breath you take,
    I’ll be watching you.”

    Creepy, creepy, creepy!

    Happy borthday JenB!

    Happy birthday, JenB!!

    I agree with Chelsea B., “Every Breath You Take”, complete with broodingly psychotic music, is my choice for *the* stalker song. Why this song is so popular at wedding receptions is beyond me (and apparently Sting didn’t get it either).

  3. Mary G

    Every Breath You Take was my first thought too. I thought it was romantic until Sting himself said it was about a stalker. Well then he shouldn’t have put it to such romantic music. Should be a headbanger or something LOL.

    So I shall pick – Stand By Me:

    When the night has come
    And the land is dark
    And the moon is the only light we see
    No I won’t be afraid
    No I won’t be afraid
    Just as long as you stand, stand by me

    AND Happy Birthday JenB

    Happy birthday jen b!

    I tweeted you, but here it is:

    “Stuck like glue
    You and me together, say, it’s all I wanna do
    I said.
    There you go making my heart beat again” #songstalker @limcelllo

    I can’t think of anything creepier than Mama by Genesis. Here’s just Verse 2

    Now I can’t keep you, mama
    But I know you’re always there
    You listen, you teach me, mama
    And I know inside you care
    So get down, down here beside me
    Ooh, you ain’t going nowhere
    No, I won’t hurt you, mama
    But it’s getting so hard, ooh

    “I’ve been looking through your window/I’ve been confiscating your mail/I’ve been tapping into your phone line/I put bugs inside your molars”
    –etc. Pretty much the entire song, “Forget Myself,” Imani Coppola

    Hard for me to think of something more stalker-y than that. 🙂 BTW, happy (probably belated) birthday to JenB!

  7. Christine Merrill

    I guarantee, this is the most cheerful disfunctional song you will ever end up singing along to. Till you Die by the Candy Butchers.

    “And baby if I awake, I’m gonna squeeze you till you break. And do you, like you did me. And if you cannot see me cry, I will haunt you till you die.”

    The same song has the line “Two people can never be closer than the killer’s knife, and the victim’s plea for life.”

    Freddy is an excellent, creepy stalker… “On the Street Where You Live” from My Fair Lady:

    The towering feeling
    Just to know somehow you are near.
    The overpowering feeling
    That any second you may suddenly appear!
    People stop and stare. They don’t bother me.
    For there’s no where else on earth that I would rather be.
    Let the time go by, I won’t care if I
    Can be here on the street where you live.

  9. Julie

    The Police’s Every Breath You Take was the first one to pop in my head, too! I think I’ll settle for Private Eyes, by Hall and Oates: “Private eyes, they’re watching you, they see your every move.”

    Yeah, creepy. 😡

    Grenade by Bruno Mars

    (this is just a stalkerish portion, IMO)

    To give me all your love is all I ever asked,
    Cause what you don’t understand is
    I’d catch a grenade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    Throw my hand on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    I’d jump in front of a train for ya (yeah, yeah , yeah)
    You know I’d do anything for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    Oh, oh
    I would go through all this pain,
    Take a bullet straight through my brain,
    Yes, I would die for ya baby;
    But you won’t do the same
