Songs about dating the wrong girl
That's what the song's about, getting me wrong and the different ways that men and women see each other."Got Me Wrong" was released as a single in 1994, after its appearance in Clerks.
"Got Me Wrong" is a largely acoustic single by the American rock band Alice in Chains.But none of those elements can stop "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart" from succeeding in its titular aims. The Cure, "Pictures of You" (1989) "Pictures of You" is so devastating because it perfectly nails the mixed feelings of reminiscing about a past relationship — how we return to certain memories time and time again until they take on life of their own."I've been Facebooking for so long at these pictures of you" doesn't have quite the same feel, but the sentiment is still the same. Dire Straits, "Romeo and Juliet" (1980) Unlike whatshisface's play, this "Romeo and Juliet" suggests that love can end in tragedy without anyone getting poisoned.We recently assembled the greatest love songs of all time, but let's face it: while love has inspired some great songs, the majority of classics come from a darker place.Our rules this time were simple: one, a breakup song can be vengeful, dignified, devastated, or whatever else, as long as the lyrics make explicit reference to a relationship that is ending or has ended.In recent performances without Staley, Cantrell sings lead vocals on the whole song, as opposed to just the choruses.
This song was covered by the post-grunge band Theory of a Deadman as a b-side for their "Santa Monica" single.
Alice in Chains performed an acoustic version of "Got Me Wrong" for its appearance on MTV Unplugged in 1996 and the song was included on the Unplugged live album and home video release.
The performance from MTV Unplugged can also be found on Nothing Safe: Best of the Box.
The studio version was first featured on the band's EP Sap (1992).
A slightly different version of the song also appeared on the soundtrack to the 1994 independent comedy film Clerks, and is played when the character Randal first appears in the movie.
Ned Raggett of Allmusic said that the song "went a long way towards showing how Alice in Chains could work as effectively at low(er) volume as at high" and that "it's almost one of the warmest and most inspiring things the band had yet recorded — musically, at least." The song continues to get significant airplay on Sirius XM radio's grunge station, Lithium.
