It’s Valentine’s Day, a time to wear your heart on your sleeve and tell that special someone that you care. Poets say that love makes sweet music, but they clearly haven’t heard some of these songs that we’ve dug up. The singer’s heart was (usually) in the right place, but these not-so-sweet nothings will have you face-palming yourself into last week!

Pop music is full of horrible pickup lines, notably Akon’s blunt “I Wanna F–k You” (plus his bonus points for “Sexy B-tch”). Someone really should have called the police on The Police, for their perennial freak-out stalker theme tune, “Every Breath You Take.” And then of course there’s Kanye West, who deserves a list to himself. From the utterly indifferent to the bitter, and even just plain gross, we’ve got 25 of our picks for the least romantic lyrics in musical history. Whatever you do, make sure you DON’T include any of these tracks on your V-Day playlist….
