"You cheated and lied, as her love slowly died
And her heart just broke in two
When she was with you, all along
Behind you right or wrong
She tried to hold on, hold on
But you went too far, and she's gone
And now it's over and her heart turns to stone" - Metal_Treasure

Man to woman: "Spend the night with me while your husband's away. I promise I won't let it slip out..." - Britgirl

I was surprised you didn't include this one, Britgirl, because I know you love Amy Winehouse. - Metal_Treasure

I can't believe it either, MT! But thank you for adding it :). - Britgirl

22 Careless Whisper - Wham!

This is one of my guilty pleasures outside metal. But I learned that this is also Robb Flynn's guilty pleasure so I feel better :)
(Robb Flynn is the singer for metal band Machine Head). - Metal_Treasure

It's a guilty pleasure for me too. The whole song is very well arranged, and that saxophone is like the icing on the cake. - Gg2000

23 Community Property - Steel Panther
24 Stop - Sam Brown

Probably this song was a one hit wonder but it deserved to be a hit - vocals and music are pretty good.
