“Every Breath You Take” Playlist – Track No. 9

Track No. 9 from the “Every Breath You Take” playlist is “With or Without You” by U2.

Natalie, the protagonist of “Every Breath You Take,” feels her stalker both loves and hates her; he talks endlessly about how much he loves her and would do anything for her, but also delights in torturing her in cruel, unspeakable ways.

There’s a duality in the lyrics of “With or Without You,” that I felt matched the dynamic between Natalie and her stalker; love/hate. I can’t live with you/I can’t live without you.  

A haunting song. A classic. U2 at its finest.
