Started wondering yesterday about songs with unreliable narrators. I feel like there are a bunch of them; any suggestions?
The song that brought this to mind is “I Won't Say (I'm in Love)” from Hercules, but she's only a little bit unreliable, or maybe she's just in denial. The next one I thought of, in somewhat the same vein, is Susan Werner's “Much At All,” with its repeated refrain “I guess that I don't miss you much at all.” (You can listen to that song on YouTube, though I recommend ignoring the added visuals.)
And there are songs in which two people make conflicting claims about what happened, like “Don't You Want Me.”
But I'd be interested in clearer-cut examples of songs where it's obvious to the listener that the narrator is an unreliable one, especially if the song never explicitly says that.
