In the last decade or so, it’s become more common for musicians to write and sing about cheating on a significant other.
Popular radio tunes in this vein include “Picture” by Kid Rock, featuring Sheryl Crow; “Lips of an Angel” by Hinder; and “Unfaithful” by Rihanna.
With the excessive glorification of so-called freedom and choice comes a decrease in the value of loyalty.
Society and the entertainment industry tell us to do whatever we want and to live life without regard for others. And so the decrease in trust, self-control and respect for one another comes out in our songs.
How do you believe we can help our culture once again see the importance of fidelity and live accordingly?
