Illogical songs


Meatloaf's "I will do anything for love, but I won't do that..." does not make sense. Anything includes everything! So the lyric should be I will do almost anything for love... Precision in language and accuracy is something to strive for...

Just like that expression that bugs me: "I could care less" when it should be "I could NOT care less!"

The world is a tough place for sticklers, but I don't take it too seriously.

You made a very valid point when you said that the correct expression should in fact be "I could NOT care less" In actual fact it started out as "I couldn't care less" but with so many people being lazy in their speech, the "n't" got dropped. Just a little trivia for you!

And as for Meatloaf's song, the thing he won't do is screw around on the girl. The whole song is about what he would do to give her love, and screwing around on her just isn't a part of what he's willing to do.

yean well anything for love should include screwing for her, but not against her as that is not for love.... If your mate got off on watching you screw someone else, then you should do that to help them get off!
