Synopsis:

Love songs have become creepier than ever. Why? Because love today is creepy. We've been bludgeoned with celebrity sex tapes and couples named TomKat. Love used to come with flowers. Now it comes with publicists. Plus, let's face it: We don't pay attention to song lyrics anymore. The Police's 'Every Breath You Take', a disturbing song of bitter obsession, is still a popular choice at wedding and funerals. With so many empty distractions out there, how do you recognize a creepy love song when you hear it? In TOUCH ME, I'M SICK, Tom Reynolds, the author of the best-selling I HATE MYSELF AND WANT TO DIE: THE 52 MOST DEPRESSING SONGS YOU'VE EVER HEARD, returns with an analysis of 52 creepy love songs that have gone off the rails into the realm of the tawdry (Paul Anka's 'You're Having My Baby'), the overwhelming (Melissa Etheridge's 'Come to My Window') the obsessive (The Beatles' 'Run for Your Life'), the self-absorbed (Fergie's 'Fergilicious') and the completely weird (Michael Jackson's 'Ben'). Organising his list into ten different categories including restraining-order-inducing stalker ditties, narcissistic anthems, bitter break-up tunes, and a few of 1,500-plus songs entitled 'Butterfly', the author covers works from the 50s to the present day, pillorying artists as diverse as James Blunt, Sarah McLaughlin, Sinead O'Connor, and Slipknot. Complete with a ranked 'Countdown of Creepiness' and black and white line art throughout, TOUCH ME, I'M SICK will change the way you think about romance. You'll never love this way again. Hold on.
