Love Me Dead is a song by Ludo, released on their album You're Awful, I Love You.

I loathe sappy love songs, which is why I seem to adore vulgar comedic love songs--and Ludo's "Love Me Dead" is indeed vulgar. The song starts off with the lyric, "love me cancerously," and continues from there. The song has a wonderful Vaudeville feeling to it with staccato melodies and an overtly anti-sexual theme which the video captures perfectly. There's nothing a woman wants to hear more than, "you're hideous and sexy!" The thing I like most about the song is how all of the lyrics are both insulting, and yet enduring. For example, "you suck so passionately," sounds terrible, nobody wants to suck, however, she sucks in such a passionate way, that it's a good thing! Of all the clever lines, I think my favorite lyric of the song is, "you're a parasitic, psycho, filthy creature finger-bangin' my heart." Ah, poetry.

Lyrics

Love me cancerously
Like a salt-sore soaked in the sea.
'High-maintenance' means
You're a gluttonous queen
Narcissistic and mean.
Kill me romantically
Fill my soul with vomit
Then ask me for a piece of gum.
Bitter and dumb
You're my sugarplum.
You're awful, I love you!

She moves through moonbeams slowly
She knows just how to hold me
And when her edges soften
Her body is my coffin
I know she drains me slowly
She wears me down to bones in bed

Must be the sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead! Love me dead!

You're a faith-healer on T.V.
You're an office park without any trees
Corporate and cold
Gushing for gold
Leave me alone.
You suck so passionately
You're a parasitic, psycho, filthy creature
finger-bangin' my heart
You call me up drunk
Does the fun ever start?
You're hideous and sexy!

She moves through moonbeams slowly
She knows just how to hold me
And when her edges soften
Her body is my coffin
I know she drains me slowly
She wears me down to bones in bed

Must be the sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead! Love me dead!

Love me cancerously
Brrrot-dot-da-d-da-da!
Brrrot-dot-da-d-da-da!

How's your new boy?
Does he know about me?
You've got the mark of the beast.
You're born of a jackal! You're beautiful!

She moves through moonbeams slowly
She knows just how to hold me
And when her edges soften
Her body is my coffin
I know she drains me slowly
She wears me down to bones in bed

Wha' 'bout that sign on my head
That says, oh...
Love me dead!
