Yet Another Ballad

Here is another example of a love song. Stay With Me by Sam Smith

In this song, the singer repeatedly asks his lover to stay with him after a one-night-stand. He obviously feels some connection toward his partner but knows that it is not love. I think this song is a prime example of the damage “sleeping around” can do to someone. Although it is a very emotional song, it is sad that this song is glorified so much. People think what really is a song about sex is some beautiful love ballad. On the other hand, I do think it is interesting to show the how painful this situation can be for people versus the way other songs totally glamorize immoral behaviors. Unlike Oblivion, despite its hard-hitting piano chords, this song does not showcase pure love, the human love that imitates God’s love for us.
