The Beautiful South - Song for Whoever

Song for Whoever is a song by The Beautiful South, written by band members Paul Heaton and David Rotheray.

The song is a satire on the double standards of the Pop music industry. It is about a cynical songwriter who has relationships with women in order to get material for the love songs he writes: “I’ll love you till my pen runs dry.” If it weren’t so damned self-reflexive and unromantic, Song For Whoever could be a beautiful love song.

As it was, the track turned Heaton and co into one of Britain’s best-loved pop bands.
