Red Pill Rhymes: Bad Blood

A common complaint on red-pill sites is that mainstream media, including entertainment, is loaded with blue-pill thinking. This is certainly true: movies and TV shows routinely show women as morally and mentally superior to men, encourage men to try to buy women’s affections, shame men who stray from the blue-pill script, and so on.  You can’t even sit down and watch a manly football game without the ads and announcers telling you to buy your wife some jewelry or trying to make you feel bad that breast cancer still exists.

And yet, there’s quite a bit of red pill truth sprinkled throughout entertainment, if you watch for it.  This makes sense, since famous male performers are swarmed by so many women that they can’t help but develop some alpha attitudes.  How many hot college girls have to leave their boyfriends out front while they come backstage and beg to swallow your seed before you realize women don’t belong on pedestals?  Reality is bound to show up in their lyrics and writings, whether they intend it or not.  I thought it might be fun to chronicle some of them as I run across them.

This first one is interesting because it’s a lighthearted, almost doo-wop type of song, yet the lyrics are bluntly red pill.  It’s by Neil Sedaka, with backup vocals by Elton John of all people.  It’s a man talking to his friend, telling him he’s hooked on a woman who’s no good, and asking why.  Here are some of the lyrics (video below).

The woman no good, no how, thinkin’ maybe the blood is bad

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
The woman was born to lie
Makes promises she can’t keep
With the wink on an eye

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
Brother, you’ve been deceived
It’s bound to change you mind
About all you believe

From where I stand, it looks mighty strange
How you let a woman like that treat you like small change
I don’t understand what you’re lookin’ to find
The only thing bad blood do is mess up a good man’s mind

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
The bitch is in her smile
The lie is on her lips
Such an evil child

I wonder if this song could be made today.  It’s not just subversive because it’s critical of women, but even more because it suggests nature over nurture — maybe a person’s blood (the genes she’s born with) determines her actions, so if she’s been acting bad, that’s just who she is, and there’s nothing to be done about it.  That kind of thinking, if stated directly, gets people fired today.
