This song is all about deception. It’s about two people lying to each other to protect themselves. They know they’re lying but do it anyway because it’s easier than telling the truth.
“Would I lie to you?” – Charles & Eddie
This song is about trust and honesty. Charles & Eddie ask each other if they would ever lie to one another, and they agree that they would never do such a thing. They have complete trust in each other and know they can always rely on each other.

Here’s another song with the same name. This song is a cover of the Charles & Eddie song. Annie Lennox sings about how she would never lie to her partner, and she asks him the same question.

Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of my favorite bands, and I think this is one of their most underrated songs. Make sure you listen to this song with a good pair of bass-heavy headphones.

This song is an anthem for anyone who has been lied to. It’s a powerful song with angry lyrics, and it’s clear that Freddie Mercury is fed up with being deceived. He sings about how he wants to expose the liar for who they are.
Needless to say, Queen has never been afraid to speak their mind, and this song is no exception.

“Sweetest Lie” – Goo Goo Dolls
This song by Goo Goo Dolls is all about being lied to. The lyrics are sad and heartbreaking, and they describe how the narrator has been lied to over and over again. If you could describe it in one word, this song would be “dejected.”
“How do you sleep?” – Sam Smith
This song is a diss track directed at Sam Smith’s ex-partner. He calls him a liar and a cheat, accusing him of breaking his heart. It’s clear that Sam Smith is still hurt by the lies that his ex told him, and he wants his ex to know how much pain he has caused.
Sam’s voice, paired with the acoustic guitar in this song, is stunning.
“Suspicious Minds” – Elvis Presley
This song is about being lied to and feeling like you can’t trust anyone. Elvis Presley sings about how he’s been lied to in the past and is now suspicious of everyone. He doesn’t know who to believe and feels like he’s constantly being deceived.
“Liar” – Sex Pistols
This song talks about accusing a manager of being a liar and thief. The lyrics are angry and full of rage, and it’s clear that the Sex Pistols don’t take kindly to being lied to. The central theme revolves around the music business and everything behind the scenes.
There are sounds in the background of this song that is reminiscent of a courtroom and punishment, and it’s clear that the band is trying to make a statement.
“Beautiful Liar” – Beyonce and Shakira
This song is about two women in a relationship with the same man. They are both aware he is a liar, but they continue to be drawn to him. The lyrics are seductive and full of desire, and it’s clear that Beyonce and Shakira are not ready to give up on this man despite his lies.
It also talks about female empowerment as they ignore the man in a smart move.
“Liar” – Britney Spears
Britney wrote this song to answer Justin Timberlake’s song, “Cry Me a River.” Britney accuses Justin of being a liar and breaking her heart in her song. Britney also cleared that she wasn’t cheating, and there’s no better way to get back at a liar than by writing a public song about it. Right? Right?
