I Still Can't Get Over Loving You

Artist: 
Ray Parker Jr.

There's a lot to talk about here so let's get moving. First of all this is more of my evidence that 80's R&B was the best. Second of all it's another video I've never seen. I'm not sure how I could spend my entire adolescence watching MTV and not see so many videos. Most importantly however I'd like to discuss the disturbing undertones of this song that seem to be made even more clear in the video.

Towards the end of the song Mr. Parker Jr. begins an escalating rant about how the girl in question shouldn't leave him, reaching a fever pitch with "Don't you ever try to leave, it'll be the last thing you'll ever do." So ... isn't that kind of disturbing. In the video he pairs this bit of the song with him pushing a bust of her off its perch and having it smash on the floor. Now I'm not claiming that he's really advocating violence here, but ... I mean...c'mon. I think he could have been a little more aware. Am I being overly sensitive?
