you really like that song huH? hahaha, i love it too! My view is cynical, but it's possible he was in a poly relationship and just wrote some silly lyrics about it, haha

Actually BreakBenjamin has become one of my new favorite artists. I find his music really decent. haha

I am as cynical as they come but that would be pretty narcissistic to write a song about his cock, and it would give a lot of emotional credit to a piece of equipment that doesn't need to involve emotion haha

Hey, I like that song too. LOL! I found it when I first met Redpepper. I think you are right though..probably just a catchy word for a song.

This is a thread that could go on and on. Seems like marriage isn't about how many people are tying the knot, officially or no. It's about commitment and what your heart says about someone.

I'll be up front here - that's an expression from my generation and I don't mind dating myself. I feel very suspicious about commitment. It can be a nasty proposition. But I led a sad life - and many don't feel that way.

Seems like songs about commitment and or songs about the heart couldn't go far wrong. The radio spends all day every day spinning songs that will speak to you personally. Since there are a lot of us this takes a lot of time. Finding a song that talks to you and talks to the one you're wedding too - doesn't this make the best sense?

I just thought of a very old school song about Poly. Torn Between Two Lovers... I believe it's Mary Macgregor. I remember hearing it when I was just a kid. Didn't realize it was about Poly.

Ok so I love music:) I like all the classics from the eighties and seventies. As for Poly friendly I say anything as long as it doesnt specify singing to a spacific gender. I also am non traditional for weddings so Anything goes there too! I'm all for rock n out at the wedding/handfasting :)

Funny east coast story. The newfies have a tradition that is called being sreeched in. Essentially they take you on a pub crawl, feed you one beer and a shot of newfie screech at every bar (yet this becomes painful) and then at the end you have to kiss a cod. :)

We attended a birthday party where we did that... :eek: I have a picture somewhere around here of Mark kissing the cod... :eek:

Love Great Big Sea....

I can't believe that nobody's mentioned "You're The Two" by The Roches! Such a happy, poly song. :)

"Some girls will settle for just one... they don't know what they're missin', they ain't havin' any fun!"

Then there's My Girlfriend's Girlfriend by Type O Negative (RIP Peter).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgkBWZXVLyk&ob=av3el <-- yum!!!
"It's no secret we're close... as sweaty velcro."
I especially like his line in this song "she looks like you"... who's to say exactly what he meant by it, but to me it says "yes it's an odd situation but the third is not some freak, she's just another person, just like you."

And let's not forget "Two Heads are Better than One" by Power Tool.

It's about two men who fight over a woman, realize how stupid it was, and decide that they'll only sleep with women they can share from then on. The song references them as brothers, I've always assumed that they were meant to be close friends, but who knows. :)
"We said you've gotta have both, she said 'That's a joke, it takes two just to get my attention!'"

These songs are my new personal anthems!!!! Just sent them to both my men. Thanks a million!!!!

Torn Between Two Lovers

The song "Torn Between Lovers" was one of the saddest songs ever written! Poly is such a happy alternative :)

Vote here for The Roches...

...also XTC's Green Man. Not a poly song per se, but it touches on all the kinds of love a primal, passionate archetype can raise and stroke in us:

It's also just a gorgeous song to hold your beloveds close and move together in among a group of supportive/loving souls.

I've been doing some poly-song research lately and here are a couple that came up..

Olivia Newton John, Culture Shock. A rather horrible tune but interesting lyrics.

A really beautiful song - Grace Slick, Triad.

A very sad song about a woman with multiple loves is Joni Mitchell's Cactus Tree.

Fun: Iris deMent and John Prine - Let's invite them over

Chris de Burgh - Much more than this

And a great rock song about threesomes: Joan Jett - The French Song

This old classic rock song came on the radio the other day, and it struck me that it could be about someone struggling with but ultimately accepting their lover having other loves, and asking to be a part of their lover's life in whatever way they can because they love them so much. Here are the lyrics, can you also see how I interpreted it that way?


Hello, it's me
I've thought about us for a long, long time
Maybe I think too much but something's wrong
There's something here that doesn't last too long
Maybe I shouldn't think of you as mine

Seeing you
Or seeing anything as much as I do you
I take for granted that you're always there
I take for granted that you just don't care
Sometimes I can't help seeing all the way through

It's important to me
That you know you are free
'Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You know that I'd be with you if I could
I'll come around to see you once in a while
Or if I ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think I should

It's important to me
That you know you are free
'Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You know that I'd be with you if I could
I'll come around to see you once in a while
Or if I ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think I should

Think of me...
Think of me...
Think of me.
