Best Songs With Quit In The Title
Do you want to quit a toxic relationship? What’s that addiction you wish you could quit but it’s almost overwhelmingly difficult to stop? Life has given us the opportunity to quit anything that we detest, anything that brings discomfort; maybe not necessarily to you, but to those around you.
Sometimes, you might want to quit because you think you’ve tried too hard and that there’s no hope of making things better. “Quit” is not a phrase specified to any person; meaning that even musicians too along the line think of quitting their careers out of frustration.
This comprehensive list below contains songs with the word quit in the title; this way, you too can feel the songwriter’s pain and the reason for their song’s composition. Enjoy!
1. “Quit” By Ariana Grande And Sia
One of my favourite songs with “quit” in the title from my all-time legendary Sia. The vocals in the song are breathtaking. This collaboration was something I’ve longed to see; Ari’s airy melodies syncing with Sia’s raspy vocal cracks. One you shouldn’t want to miss!
The narrator is depicted as being in a romantic connection with a person who is definitely not someone she should be engaged with. This is made abundantly clear in the very first stanza of the song when a number of people who sound like they could be her friends or relatives advise her not to deal with him.
In addition, during the pre-chorus, the vocalist admits that the “voice” in her head is conveying the same message to her. The title of this song comes from the fact that she is not in a position to “quit” the relationship.
In spite of the fact that she is aware of the fact that she “is going to regret it” in the long run, she is adamant on maintaining her relationship with this man.
And the implication, which is based on the second stanza, is that the component of their relationship that is more carnal is what actually has her hooked.
However, it is not hard to see that her feelings for him go beyond the world of the merely sensual, and that she is, in fact, head over heels in love with him.
2. “Quite Miss Home” by James Arthur
Songs convey the most intense of emotions; and they act as channels to relay songwriter’s emotions to us when we play their music. James Arthur is a promising artist and his delivery is impeccable; this is yet another lovely piece from him.
The song “Quite Miss Home” by James Arthur is directed toward a person who the artist formerly shared a home with. If the addressee in the first verse is the same as the addressee in the second verse, then it is likely that this person was someone he worked with in the past.
The lyrics of the song suggest that he may be referring to a (most likely female) member of the family; nonetheless, the general suggestion is that this individual was someone with whom he shared a romantic relationship.
And now, in the present day, James has relocated his residence to “another city” because of chances for business. And as all of this is going on, he is thinking back on his history with the person in question, recounting how he endured hardship because he was separated from her presence.
3. “Chiquitita” by ABBA
ABBA, a revolutionary Swedish pop group, is responsible for the song “Chiquitita.” Lyrically, Chiquitita depicts the singer encouraging a good friend named Chiquitita, who is morose and gloomy, to look at the lighter side of life and to not let their sorrow to enchain and rule them.
The singer then on to reassure Chiquitita that they can depend on them and that they will always be a shoulder for Chiquitita to cry on. A person who is experiencing an overwhelming amount of sorrow can find some solace in the song’s lyrics.
There is no way of telling whether or not the song Chiquitita is based on the artist’s actual life or not.
However, it is important to note that shortly after the song was released, there were rumours that the song was written for Linda Ulvaeus, the daughter of ABBA band members Agnetha Faltskog and Bjorn Ulvaeus.
Linda Ulvaeus was only about 5 or 6 years old when her parents’ marriage started to fall apart, and it is speculated that the song was written for her.
According to some other claims, the song was supposedly written about a maid who worked for one of the band members and was the subject of the song. There is no evidence to support either of the rumours up to this point.
4. “You Can’t Quit Me Baby” By Queens Of The Stone Age
To me, there is no questioning that this is a love song; a dark love song. This is about when you are head over heels in love with someone but they do not feel the same way about you. And if you are unable to emotionally be with the person who you love, you would rather not exist in this world.
Perhaps the narrator takes their own life in order to place the blame for their actions on the shoulders of the person they admire. This song has honesty and sincerity to it that makes it seem to me like it may be based on a real experience that Josh Homme may have had at some point in his life.
5. “Can’t Quit You” By Danielle Cormier
Danielle Cormier’s memories of her former partner are like a soiled stain that just will not go away; she can not shake off the thought no matter how hard she tries.“’Can’t Quit You” is about an almost-relationship or a what-if scenario.
It was one of those relationships that suffered from unfortunate timing; a month after they first met, her ex moved away, and then not long after that, the narrator relocated to Nashville.
On the other hand, she could not get him out of her mind. The recollections they both had, her curiosity about what he was up to now, and the myriad of outcomes that were not to be was all heartbreaking.
In this song, the narrator expresses profound feelings for her ex promising she wasn’t going to quit him even though they were miles apart. If you’ve got a compilation of songs with quit in the title either on your smartphone on your car cd, then this song should not be missing in it.
