Strange Garage Rock Song that Threatens Violence! Don't Ever Leave Me, by the slightly deranged band The Villains!

I'm warning you! If you leave me, something bad might happen to you! I can't control myself!

This is a 2 minute song from The Villains; some guys from Evansville Indiana who went to Nashville to record this in the summer of 1965. Its a simple guitar based mid tempo song, and at 5 seconds in, during the 4th of the 4 chord progression, the singer screams like a madman!

After the second verse he does it again! Let's look at the strange threatening lyrics:

Don't ever leave me, 'cause if you do, something real BAD might happen to you! 'Cause if you ran off with someone else, I know I couldn't control myself!

If you start treating me unkind, it could just cause me to lose my mind! Don't think I'm trying to frieghten you, but I just can't tell you WHAT I'd do!

Scream! The simple guitar break.

I don't want it! I won't have it! I'll never let you run out on me! I won't buy it, so don't try it! Or you'll be sorry; wait and see!

Don't ever leave me, 'cause if you do, something real BAD might happen to you! 'Cause if you ran off with someone else, I know I couldn't control myself! I know I couldn't control myself! I know I couldn't control myself!

Not my favorite song of all time, but it's pretty weird so I thought I'd share it. :)
