    Bruno Mars – The first time I heard “Should’ve gave you all my hours” I thought “Aww, what a nice sentiment.” The second time I heard it I thought “Should have gave!?”

    But the one I really can’t stand, the one that has been driving me batty for over 20 years, is the song “More Than Words” by 90s hair band Extreme: “Saying I love you / Is not the words I want to hear from you.”
