Best Songs About Obsession 

Black Widow” – Iggy Azalea feat. Rita Ora

This is one of the most obsessed songs. A wronged lady seeks vengeance on a guy who should have known better, according to the story of the song. She tells the man that he must love her till it hurts him.

She also guarantees that he will despise her in the end. It’s one of those songs about running and falling in love with someone who is more of a liability than a benefit and can’t seem to get away from it.

The video of the song is also fantastic, giving the impression that you’re seeing “Kill Bill.” It’s catchy music with a melody that may become stuck in one’s mind and refuse to leave until they listen to it repeatedly.

“Stan”- Eminem feat. Dido

“Stan,” the big hit, is not based on a natural person. Stan, an extremely enthusiastic fan, has an escalating discussion in the song. It is a song about running to commit suicide when the person you are obsessed with fails to match your communication energy.

When Eminem fails to react to Stan’s letters, he becomes more irritated and enraged. Finally, he commits murder-suicide (killing himself and his lover) and records his death for the media.

Eminem composed the single as a “message to fans” after getting troubling fan feedback in reaction to his album. The Dido-sampling song went on to become a career-defining smash, and the term “stan” was added to the Oxford English Dictionary.

“You are beautiful” – James Blunt

The song was released In 2005. It’s a creeper-inspired love song. If one pays careful attention to the music, they can develop an unhealthy attachment with a stranger. The song describes the narrative of a man who sees a woman on the metro and becomes obsessed with her.

He believed they had a moment to last until their final breath after only brief eye contact. However, the guy subsequently confesses that they’ll never be together. It’s a fantastic song since it was written from the heart. The sincerity of James’ voice is evident.

“Shiver” – Coldplay

The lead singer, Martin, apparently penned the song while thinking of Natalie Imbruglia, an Australian singer-songwriter with whom he was romantically involved, although he later disputed this. The song is about a devoted lover who refuses to accept “no” as an answer and pursues her (If that’ll persuade her to reconsider!) As a result, he continues to track her.

The target might not even notice he’s there since he’s looking right through her. The stalker, on the other hand, warns that he will constantly be on the lookout for the female. It’s a fantastic tune since the lyrics could make one shiver.

“You Oughta Know” – Alanis Morrisette

The song is about a lover who crushes into an ex-lover’s party and ruins it. In this Grammy Award-winning song from 1995, the anguished, frantic woman asks Mr. Duplicity if he forgot about her. She then scolds both her ex-lover and his new lady love.

Alanis Morrisette wrote this song about her breakup with an ex-boyfriend. The music has been excellent since 1996. It was nominated for three Grammy Awards, where it emerged and won: The Best Female Rock Vocal Performance and the Best Rock Song.

“I Wanna have your babies” – Natasha Bedingfield

Despite the passage of time, the song’s creepiness has not diminished. Natasha, a British singer, explains that people should believe her when she reveals what’s on her mind in this song.

The song’s video opens with a glimpse of Bedingfield working out at a gym. It is one of the songs about running lovers. The singer expresses her desire to have children with the male teacher. The teacher is attempting to flee for his life.

This is continued in the film with other males, and towards the end, there is an entire park full of babies. The music appears to be a pleasant tune, but you will be able to tell what is wrong with the hit just before it concludes.

“Invisible” – Clay Aiken

The song is about a psychotic man enthralled by a woman who ignores him completely. He also thinks that without her, he is nothing. He is afraid of being rejected if he expresses his affections to the women. But, like a fly on the wall, he wants to watch her.

In 2004, the song reached number eight on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart and 37 on the Hot 100 list. Without question, the finest stalkers hymn is the gold-certified song. It’s amusing since it’s disguised as a popular tune.

“Obsession” – Sky Ferreira

The words of this song are pretty catchy. The frightening aspect of this song is that you will begin to sing along with it, and it will grow on you. The music will intuitively become appropriate for you. Sky Ferreira, an American singer and songwriter, wrote the song. Ryan Tedder, Jerrod Bettis, and DJ Frank E also contributed to the song’s production. In 2010, the song was ranked number 37 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Songs chart.

“Every breath you take” – The Police

For decades, this melody has served as a love song. However, we’re guessing you didn’t hear the song’s message. Sting wrote the song, first performed by The Police in 1983. For eight weeks in a row, the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 singles list and other international music charts.

The song was also nominated for Grammys and was named the nation’s number one song by the British public. For sociopaths and stalkers, this song may be the most pleasing groove.

“Hello” – Lionel Ritchie

In the year 1984, the song was released. A guy is charmed with a woman who walks by his door on occasion, according to the story of the music. He longs to greet her by declaring his love for her. He fantasizes about her falling in love with him as well. As a result, the song is about a one-sided partner fixated on the other.
