Happy Music Monday! Music has always been about the dark side of life, so one must expect that lies would be mentioned regularly. Today Scott's picked five songs about lies. Do you have any to add? It'll be your turn at the end! Honest!

Fleetwood Mac - Little Lies


Lies can be weird, because sometimes they're what we WANT to hear. We know they're fake, but we still want 'em whispered at us. And, to be fair, sometimes the world is just better when wrapped in lies.

See you after the jump! Unless we're just making that up. You gotta ask yourself… can you trust this blog post?

Marina And The Diamonds - Lies


Lies that are short and brief, they might be considered white. But lies that get stretched out for too long? Those can really hurt when the bubble finally pops. Naturally some people would rather stay in the nice safe lie than deal with the reality. The song pretty much sums up the rest.

Thompson Twins - Lies


Lies can also be based around a person's point of view. "I love you" might mean "I love you right now" but be heard as "I'll love you forever." Was it a lie at first? Did it grow into a lie? Does that even count, or is it just a word to throw around when angry?

Nine Inch Nails - Terrible Lie


Speaking of angry, the idea that life is a lie is one of those angsty ideas we all have at one time or another. But if life is a lie, what's the truth? Yeah, see, Trent? You're not the only one with a monopoly on angsty brilliance. Our record's on sale in the lobby.

Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway


Don't ever trust that lamb for a second. ESPECIALLY not down on Broadway. Something about that area, it just loves to lie around there.

FINE that last one doesn't count. Go ahead and post your songs about lies. Let us just remind you: some images come from the corresponding Wikipedia page and are here under fair use. See you next week.
