48: ‘ My Mamma Said’ by Aqua

Despite the unhappiness that infects Steven and Natasha’s marriage, Natasha stays for the sake of their children. She gives up her life so that they can have a happier life.

Gaga, the older daughter, notices her mother becoming more and more unhappy. And she wants to do something about it. She thanks her for doing it but asks her to leave.

Natasha shakes off her concern. She tells her that  the best thing in life was getting Gaga and loving her higher than anything else in this world, and the worst thing in life is getting used to loving somebody higher than anything else in this world, knowing you’re going to lose it all in time. So she wants to do this for her.

It doesn’t get easier, when Rachel, the younger daughter, is actively working with Gaga. Rachel begs for Natasha to not leave.

Natasha stays. She stays and dies a slow death. Her mind wanders to all that way her life could have turned out. She becomes passive and spends most of her time lying around – and Gaga can’t look at her without crying.

Rachel, however, keeps holding on to her mother, begging her not to leave and run away from her mind and life. To release herself from her imagination and be with her family.

Both daughters circle their mother begging her to listen to them.

47: ‘Mean Girls’ by Rachel Crow

Natascha and Steven has another daughter, whose name is Rachel. She’s at a boarding school and she is being bullied by the girls there.

They avoid her to the point of leaving the table, when she arrives. They call her names.

This gets to Rachel. She runs home to her room and locks herself in, so she can cry. She hears everyone’s having fun outside, she tells herself, that this is it. She won’t let it get to her no more, she doesn’t want to feel this way.

Why did she let it go so far? She decides to comb them out of her curls and not let them run her world. She will ignore them instead.

She soon has to put this to the test, when everyone is wearing bubblegum-pink, whereas she is wearing blue. They all laugh at her – including a former friend, who’s now very popular. Instead of being devastated and beginning to cry, she gets angry and confront her former friend angrily, taunting her for doing the easy thing and bullying Rachel instead of standing by Rachel’s side. She reminds her, that it might one day be her, who everyone will avoid, because she is no longer cool. And she says, she hopes she will be forgiven on that day.

46: ‘Turn Me On’ by David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj

Pink’s mind and body are broken. Love kept her sane and healthy – but now that Grey Eyes is no longer her girlfriend, she once again needs medicine, or else she will die.

So she finds the doctor who once gave her medicine since she can’t exactly explain her situation to a new doctor.

But since that wasn’t enough last time, she needs him to give her love too, in the shape of children.

So she begs for him to save her and make her come alive again.  She assures him, that he can make it right. He has her life in the palm of his hands. She wants him to father the children.

45: ‘This Is What You Came For’ by Calvin Harris feat. Rihanna

Nicki chose who to seduce very deliberately. You see, she is loudmouthed, because otherwise people don’t notice her.

Gaga is different. She attracts attention naturally. Lightning strikes every time she moves. In a night club she quickly draws everyone’s eyes – and Nicki is jealous of that.

So once when Gaga herself sets her eyes on someone, Nicki catches their attention, before they notice and gets them to go home with her instead. It’s easy, since they obviously came here with the exact purpose to pick someone up and Nicki doesn’t have to say a lot.

”Your place” she says as the two leave together.

44: ‘Why Don’t You Love Me’ by Beyonce

There is no love in Steven and Natasha’s marriage. And she decides to do something about it, specifically to talk to him about it. Steven however does not want to, so she has to convince him to that first: ”Now, now, now, honey. You better sit down and look around, cause you must’ve bumped yo’ head. And I love you enough to talk some sense back into you, baby. I’d hate to see you come home, me, the kids and the dog is gone.”

When him finally listening, she asks him:  ”I give you everything you want, everything you need. Even your friends say I’m a good woman. All I need to know is why? Why don’t you love me? Tell me, baby, why don’t you love me, when I make me so damn easy to love? And why don’t you need me? Tell me, baby, why don’t you need me, when I make me so damn easy to need?”

Her voice is cracking, when she reminds him, why he should love her: ” I got beauty, I got class, I got style, and I got @ss. And you don’t even care to care.”

He tries not to look at her, so she says: ”Looka here. I even put money in the bank account. Don’t have to ask no one to help me out. You don’t even notice that.”

She continues: ”I got beauty, I got heart. Keep my head in them books, I’m sharp. But you don’t care to know, I’m smart.”

His attention once again strays, so she recaptures it: ”Now, now now now now now now. I got moves in your bedroom. Keep you happy with the nasty things I do. But you don’t seem to be in tune.”

By now she is desperate to get him to see! with a voice more cracked than ever she pleas: ”There’s nothing not to love about me. No, no, there’s nothing not to love about me. I’m lovely. There’s nothing not to need about me. No, no, there’s nothing not to need about me.”

When this doesn’t work either, she realises that the problem doesn’t lie with her, but him. He’s simply not the one for him. So she says: ”Maybe you’re just not the one. Or maybe you’re just plain……. DUMB.”

43: ‘Amaranth’ by Nightwish

Brad was born belonging to a different people, that lived in an immortal life in the shadows, unable to step into the sunlight. If they ever did, they have only short to live.

Most found a life in shadows a perfect existence – but Brad had doubts. He longed for a life in the daylight. He felt alone and all wrong and felt like someone ought to be blamed for this. He was alone and angry.

He knew that living in the light might not be as good as he imagined, that the price was very steep and he couldn’t regret his choice once it was made. So he walked on, caressing the tears of sorrow in his heart, walking just along the edge of the shadows.

One day he couldn’t stand it anymore. He dared to reach out and leave the shadows, moving in to the untouched sunlight, still with the voice of reason calling in his head.

He then hid his past immortality and the consequence of leaving it behind as a shameful secret from everyone he met, caressing the tears of sorrow in his heart for his now limited lifespan.
