Top 25 Best Songs About Cheating

What do you do when you discover that your partner is cheating on you? Of course, its heartbreaking, and at that point, lots of ideas will go through your mind. Most people would react violently, while some will act calmly, whichever way, the truth is that one will feel heartbroken, especially when there is so much love involved. At that point, singing a love song will only make you look more pathetic, what about a song about cheating, ever thought of that?

It was Jay-Z that once said, “Men lie. Women lie. Numbers don’t.” I think Jay-Z had a point when you put into consideration the number of songs about both men and women that lie to each other on daily basis. Just like love, death, and taxes, cheating is a fact of life that would always occur as long as there’s human existence. Some of the best country songs, blues, R&B have been written about it and some will still be written in the future. In this article, we’ll be looking at the Top 25 songs about cheating.
