Music Monday: Boy vs Girl

by Scott Lydon

Happy Music Monday! If there's one topic that's been in music since the VERY beginning, it's the relationship between men and women. Today Scott's found five boy v girl songs in which the two sides hold their own in a very catchy way. He's starting with perhaps the most beloved of the boy vs girl songs. And it takes place... in a cocktail bar.

Human League - Don't You Want Me


This '80s classic is pretty much the ultimate he said/she said song. Not only is it catchy, it doesn't resolve itself neatly. The listener is left to decide if this waitress owes it all to her patron, or if he just wants to steal the credit for her hard work. What do YOU think, listener?

Oh, we're only just starting. Four more to come!
