They can't love you back: 15 love songs about inanimate objects

Categories: Lists

5. Run DMC - "My Adidas"

There is no other song that expresses its love of a particular brand of sneakers as much as Run DMC's "My Adidas." If you're lonely and bored on Valentine's Day, remember this: You'll have a pair you can wear when you're playing ball, with a heel inside that'll make you ten feet tall.

4. Guided by Voices - "My Valuable Hunting Knife"

If you're hanging out all by yourself this holiday with just your underwear and your hunting knife, then this song is for you. You can start a new life together and talk to all of your friends about your new love interest.

3. Beatles - "Got to Get You Into My Life"

We're in Colorado, so we have to have at least two songs about weed on this list. While there were plenty to choose from, this Beatles tune seems to fit the mold better than any other, especially because it's probably used as a regular old love song more often than not.

2. Ghostface Killah - "The Sun"

There are a lot of songs about the sun, but there are no other tracks in the history of music that show their adoration of the sun in such a convincing way. We'd have to agree: The sun is pretty damn awesome.

1. Harry Nilsson - "Good Old Desk"

Sure, people like to assume this song is about God, but we're not really interested in reading into things. So as far as we're concerned, this is a song about one of our favorite things: desks. Without them, all of our shit would be taking up space on the floor.

Everything in this world does need a song to pay it tribute! Inanimate they may be, people have attached certain sentimental values to them. BTW, "I love my car" is also perfect for road trips!


What about Bad Religion's "I Love My Computer"?
