To a lot of people, this will always be known as the Lifetime song. That’s because Lifetime used to always play this song in their commercials and it always fit in perfectly with whatever melodramatic movie was being advertised. Like the best Lifetime films, Ex’s & Oh’s may sound dramatic but it’s actually very humorous and self-aware.
Just consider some of my favorite lyrics:
Well, I had me a boy, turned him into a man I showed him all the things that he didn’t understand Whoa, and then I let him go Now, there’s one in California who’s been cursing my name ‘Cause I found me a better lover in the UK Hey, hey, until I made my getaway One, two, three, they gonna run back to me ‘Cause I’m the best baby that they never gotta keep One, two, three, they gonna run back to me They always wanna come, but they never wanna leave
Myself, I loved this song even before it became a Lifetime anthem. This is one of those songs that it’s fun to sing off-key to while you’re stuck on Central Expressway.
There’s actually two videos for this song. The video that I shared today is the first version and I like it the best because there’s zombie at the end!
