‘I don’t care eh-eh-eh-eh-eh!’

Not all songs that sound nice have pleasant context or meanings.

“Every Breath You Take” by The Police is actually a song about a stalker.

Every breath you take and every move you make
Every bond you break, every step you take, I’ll be watching you
Every single day and every word you say
Every game you play, every night you stay, I’ll be watching you
Oh, can’t you see you belong to me
How my poor heart aches with every step you take
Every move you make, and every vow you break
Every smile you fake, every claim you stake, I’ll be watching you

Now, to the examples that were made in my generation.

“Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People, despite its fun and lively whistle melody and use of a seemingly soft autotune voice, has a dark meaning — a story about a boy fantasizing about doing a school shooting.

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
Better run, better run
Outrun my gun
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
Better run, better run
Faster than my bullet

There is also this song called “I Don’t Care” by KPop group 2NE1, which features former “Star Circle Quest,” an ABS-CBN reality show, alumna Sandara Park.

The Korean song is a good song to dance to as it is upbeat and it is about moving on from a partner who does not give a s*** with his infidelity.

However, the shooting incident on December 20 involving a policeman and a mother with her son drastically changed its meaning.

The incident involved Police Senior Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca who shot both Sonya Gregorio, 52, and Frank Anthony Gregorio, 25.

Allegedly, it was triggered over the victims’ usage of “boga,” a noisemaker, and a property or right-of-way dispute.

The daughter of the policeman, during the heated confrontation, said: “My father is a policeman,” to which the mother responded with “I don’t care,” which led the policeman to shoot the victims.

Now, the Korean song takes on a whole new meaning: a song of defiance against people who think they are all that when they are not.*
