1. Katy Perry — "Dark Horse"

Lyrics that seem so romantic:

Are you ready for, ready for / A perfect storm, perfect storm

Jonas Akerland / Via youtube.com

Lyrics that seem so romantic:

A tough love (Super power) / Uh huh, like a shark (Super power)

Lyrics that seem so romantic:

You make me wanna tap out and retire / Your pretty lips leave me so inspired

Sexy, sure, but if you listen a little closer you'll realize that Usher wants those "pretty lips" on something other than his mouth.

5. Jason Derulo — "Trumpets"

All opportunities for romantic lyricism are replaced by na-na-na-na-na-na-na.

8. Ariana Grande Feat. The Weeknd — "Love Me Harder"

Tell me something I need to know / Then take my breath and never let it go

Lyrics that seem so romantic:

Why you gotta be so rude? / Don't you know I'm human too?

Why you gotta be so rude? / I'm gonna marry her anyway

Why it's not romantic: The whole song is basically a tantrum about not getting the father's approval, but HELLO have you asked your girlfriend?
