Poison by Alice Cooper.

Your cruel device,
Your blood like ice.
One look could kill,
My pain, your thrill.

I wanna love you, but I better not touch (don't touch)
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you, but I want it too much (too much)
I wanna taste you, but your lips are venomous poison

You're poison running through my veins
You're poison, I don't wanna break these chains.

Your mouth, so hot
Your web, I'm caught
Your skin, so wet
Black lace on sweat

I hear you calling and it's needles and pins (and pins)
I wanna hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
Don't wanna touch you, but you're under my skin (deep in)
I wanna kiss you, but your lips are venomous poison

You're poison running through my veins
You're poison, I don't wanna break these chains
Poison

One look (one look) could kill (could kill),
My pain, your thrill.

I wanna love you, but I better not touch (don't touch)
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you, but I want it too much (too much)
I wanna taste you, but your lips are venomous poison

You're poison running through my veins
You're poison, I don't wanna break these chains
Poison

I wanna love you, but I better not touch (don't touch)
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you, but I want it too much (too much)
I wanna taste you, but your lips are venomous poison

Well, I don't wanna break these chains
Poison
Running deep inside my veins
Burning deep inside my veins
Poison
I don't wanna break these chains
Poison
I don't wanna break these chains



I think it particularly sums up Spike's feelings for Buffy in Season 5/6. He knows no good can come from how he feels ("I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop") about Buffy (the "poison") yet he just can't help himself ("don't wanna break these chains").

Not so much the vid, but the lyrics themselves:


I'd quote specifics but they include profanity.

Crazy on You by Heart

If we still have time, we might still get by
Every time I think about it, I want to cry
With bombs and the devil, and the kids keep comin'
No way to breathe easy, no time to be young
But I tell myself that I was doin' all right
There's nothin' left to do at night
But go crazy on you
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you, oh

My love is the evenin' breeze touchin' your skin
The gentle, sweet singin' of leaves in the wind
The whisper that calls after you in the night
And kisses your ear in the early moonlight
And you don't need to wonder, you're doing fine
My love, the pleasure's mine

Let me go crazy on you
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you, oh
Wild man's world is cryin' in pain
What you gonna do when everybody's insane?

So afraid of one who's so afraid of you
What you gonna do? Oh
Ooh crazy on you
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you

I was a willow last night in a dream
I bent down over a clear running stream
Sang you the song that I heard up above
And you kept me alive with your sweet flowing love

Crazy
Yeah, crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you, oh
Crazy on you
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you, yeah
Crazy on you
Crazy on you
Let me go crazy, crazy on you, oh

Well this is a thread for me! Will check out your suggestions later (in a crowded room right now without headphones).

I have a whole playlist dedicated to Spuffy songs, it currently has 86 songs and is arranged kinda in a chonological fashion except from some late additions that I haven't had time to sort in the right place yet. (Link if you wanna check out)

I'd wanna start with Hoziers album "Hozier" where almost half the songs makes me think of Spuffy! Some examples:

Angel of small death and the codeine scene


"Feeling more human and hooked on her flesh I
lay my heart down with the rest at her feet
...
I'ts bloody and raw but I swear it is sweet

With her sweetened breath
and her tongue so mean
She's the angel of small death (and the codeine scene)
With her straw-blone hair
Her arms hard and lean
She's the angel of small death (and the codeine scene)"

From Eden


"Innocence died screaming,
honey ask me I should know
I slithered here from Eden
just to sit outside your door

Babe
There's something wretched about this
Something so precious about this
Where to begin?

Babe
There's something broken about this
But I might be hoping about this
Oh, what a sin"

Sedated


"Something isn't right, babe; I keep catching
Little words, but the meaning's thin
I'm somewhere outside my life, babe; I keep scratching
But somehow I can't get in

So we're slaves
To any semblance of touch
Lord, we should quit
But we love it too much

Sedated, we're nursing on a
Poison that never stung
Our teeth and lungs are lined
With the scum of it"

It will come back


"Don't give it a hand, offer it a soul
Honey, make this easy
Leave it to the land, this is what it knows
Honey, that's how it sleeps

Don't let it in with no intention to keep it
Jesus Christ, don't be kind to it
Honey, don't feed it, it will come back
...
I know who I am when I'm alone
I'm something else when I see you
You don't understand, you should never know
How easy you are to need

Don't let me in with with no intention to keep me
Jesus Christ, don't be kind to me
Honey, don't feed me, I will come back

It can't be unlearned
I've known the warmth of your doorways
Through the cold, I'll find my way back to you"

Foreigner's God


"Her eyes look sharp and steady
Into the empty parts of me
But still my heart is heavy
With the hate of some other man's beliefs
...
Wondering who I copy
Mustering some tender charm
She feels no control of her body
She feels no safety in my arms

I've no language left to say it
But all I do is quake to her
Breaking if I try convey it
The broken love I make to her"

Some Fall Out Boy

Irresistible


"Coming in unannounced, drag my nails on the tile
I just follow your scent, you can just follow my smile
All of your flaws are aligned with this mood of mine
Cutting me to the bone, nothing left to leave behind

You ought to keep me concealed just like I was a weapon
I didn't come for a fight but I will fight 'til the end
This one might be a battle, might not turn out okay
You know you look so Seattle but you feel so LA

And I love the way you hurt me
It's irresistible, oh yeah
I love the way (yeah), I love the way (yeah)
I love the way you hurt me, baby
...

You're second hand smoke, second hand smoke
I breathe you in, but honey, I don't know
What you're doing to me, mon chéri
But the truth catches up with us eventually"

American Beauty/American Psycho (except for the American part in Spikes case I guess)


"I think I fell in love again
Maybe I just took too much cough medicine
I'm the best worst thing that hasn't happened to you yet
The best worst thing
You take the full, full truth, then you pour some out
You take the full, full truth, then you pour some out
And you can kill me, kill me or let God sort ‘em out
And you can kill me, kill me or...whoa

She's an American beauty
I'm an American psycho
She's an American beauty
I'm an American
I'm an American
American Psycho
I'm an American
I'm an American
I'm, I'm, I'm an American psycho

...
And as we're drifting off to sleep
All those dirty thoughts of me
They were never yours to keep, keep, whoa

Altar boys, altered boys
We’re the things that love destroys
You, me, us, them
We’re just resurrection men
Us, we were only meant, to make you live again
Us, we were pity sex, nothing more and nothing less"

The Kids Aren't Alright
(this one makes me think of S7 in general but from a Spike/Spuffy perspective... "the kids" in this case are the potentials, "we put your curse in reverse" is activating all the slayers)


"Stuck in the jet wash
A bad trip I couldn't get off
Maybe I bit off more than I could chew
Overhead of the aqua blue

Fall to your knees bring on the rapture
Blessed be the boys time can't capture
On film or between the sheets
I always fall from your window to the pitch black street

And with the black banners raised
As the crooked smiles fade
Former heroes who quit too late
Who just wanna fill up the trophy case again

And in the end
I'd do it all again
I think you're my best friend
Don't you know that the kids aren't al-, kids aren't alright
I'll be yours
When it rains it pours
Stay thirsty like before
Don't you know that the kids aren't al-, kids aren't alright

I'm not passive but aggressive
Take note, it's not impressive
Empty your sadness like you're dumping your purse
On my bedroom floor
We put your curse in reverse

And it's our time now if you want it to be
Maul the world like the carnival bear set free
And your love is anemic and I can't believe
That you couldn't see it coming from me

And I still feel that rush in my veins
It twists my head just a bit to think
All those people in those old photographs I've seen are dead

Sometimes I just want to sit around and gaze at my shoes, yeah
And let your dirty sadness fill me up just like a balloon

And in the end
I'd do it all again
I think you're my best friend
Don't you know that the kids aren't al-, kids aren't alright"

Some songs I found thanks to Spuffy-videos on YT:

Zella Day - Shadow Preachers (where I took my name from)


"You make we wanna love, hate, cry, take, every part of you
You make me wanna scream, burn, touch, learn, every part of you
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

I close my eyes, just close the door
You want a minute, I'll give you more
Maybe I don't want you either
We're both unsettled, nighttime creatures
Shadow preachers, nighttime creatures

You wanna break, you break alone
You wanna leave, you're on your own"

The Civil Wars - Poison & Wine


"You only know what I want you to
I know everything you don't want me to
Oh your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
You think your dreams are the same as mine
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
Oh I don't love you but I always will
I always will

I wish you'd hold me when I turn my back
The less I give the more I get back
Oh your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don't have a choice but I'd still choose you"

Trading Yesterday - Love Song Requiem


"(Emily) will find a better place to fall asleep
She belongs to fairytales that I could never be
And the future haunts with memories that I could never have
And hope is just a stranger wondering how it got so bad

I die each time you look away
My heart, my life, will never be the same
This love will take my everything
One breath, one touch, will be the end of me

You could be the final straw that brings me back to earth
Ever waiting airports full of the love that you deserve
Wishing I could find the rain to wash away the past
Knowing that my heart will break but at least the pain will last
...
(Emily) will find a better place to fall asleep
Maybe she will save me in the oceans of her dream
Or maybe someday love
Or maybe someday love"


Okay, I'll stop spamming this thread for now 😬

Lune - Healing Song


"This is not a healing song
We don't have to get along
...
This is not a healing place
This is something we erase
We've been chased by the tide and the waves
No ending to this race

But now I chose to hide the key
To my wicked fantasies that's a part of me
You're lying in a bed with me
But all I want to see is wicked fantasies
Wicked fantasies
...
It's not a healing song you hear
It's the cold hard truth
It's a storm you feel
My wicked fantasies, my dear
Wicked fantasies

This is not a healing love
It's poison in my blood
We're the loneliest lovers around
No we carry hearts alone"

Ron Pope - Monster


"I've got an itch, you've got an emptiness
I couldn't fill, false gods and tenderness
Into your will, pray on the fallen
Straps from your shoulders, how do I hold you?

Make me a monster, make me a beast
Prey on my weakness, become my disease
I've been lovesick and empty
Cold and I'm trembling
Still holding out for my fairytale ending

Nightmare
Falling as the bottom reaches up for me
Wake up on the ground

Reject
Every lesson anybody has to say
Cause I won't be saved now"

Ellie Goulding - Only You


"Only you can be
The aching in my heart, my enemy
The only animal I couldn't fight
You hold me in the dark when storms arrive
Only you

Only you can see
The emptiness I feel when you're with me
When everything you say I'm on my knees
Baby, I'm on my knees"

Ellie Goulding - JOY


"
I never seemed to learn,
That high makes things harder
That high I get from you

I've figured out that joy is not in your arms
I know I'll always ache with an empty heart
I think it's time to run 'cos I'm seeing stars
I'm seeing stars, watch me fall apart

I think of dying all the time
But I've got joy to take my side
Fear is my favorite ride"

I can't claim to have originally thought of these, but...

Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC. The following video is fanmade by a Slayerett - always and forever, and it is so good!

Chvrches is one of my favourite bands so they also have a couple of song I associate with Spuffy

Lies


"Faster, faster, you won't go far
Shouldn't leave, feeling faint, we both know why
You got to show me both knees, cold I lie
Hold me slowly, hide me 'til I can fight

Always we can sing, we can make time
Old songs, flood and flame, you could be mine
But you got to show me, both knees, skin and bone
Clothe me, throw me, move me 'til

I can sell you lies
You can't get enough
Make a true believer of
Anyone, anyone, anyone
I can call you up
If I feel low
I can feed your dirty mind
Like I know, like I know what you want"

Tether


"Where'd you go? You were there by my side
Keep believing it's my turn to hide
In a place where we don't have a prayer
There's a tether that's keeping me there
...
Will we ever get away from this place?
It's an image that's burned on my chest
For a moment you need me to stay
Cold-blooded and drifting away

Trade our places
Take no chances
Bind me 'til my lips are silent
Stay where you are
Ever, after
Chasing things that we should run from

I'm feeling capable of
Seeing the end
I'm feeling capable of
Saying it's over"

Recover


"Caught out, cold
Hiding from you in a skin so old
I'll come clean
Everyone, everyone knows it's me

Blow by blow
Honest in every way I know
You appear
To face the decision I know you fear

And if I recover
Will you be my comfort?
Or it can be over
Or we can just leave it here
So pick any number
Choose any colour
I've got the answer
Open the envelope

I'll give you one more chance to say
We can change or part ways
And you take what you need
And you don't need me
I'll give you one more chance to say
We can change our old ways
And you take what you need
And you know you don't need me"

We Sink


"We are — I've come apart, and you made me
Float like a pretty box of your evil
So tired, so easy, I
Bleed out, what the f*** were you thinking?
We are gonna fall if you lead us
Nowhere, no wasted time

I'll be a thorn in your side 'til you die
I'll be a thorn in your side for always
If we sink, we lift our love"

Some more little more upbeat songs (Maroon 5 also has o good bunch of em):

Maroon 5 - One More Night
(this vid is also pure gold, not mine though)

"You and I go hard
At each other like we're going to war
You and I go rough
We keep throwing things and slamming the doors
You and I get so damn dysfunctional we stop keeping score
You and I get sick
Yeah, I know that we can't do this no more, yeah

Try to tell you, "No"
But my body keeps on telling you, "Yes"
Try to tell you, "Stop"
But your lipstick got me so out of breath
I'll be waking up
In the morning probably hating myself
And I'll be waking up
Feeling satisfied, but guilty as hell, yeah

But baby there you go again, there you go again making me love you
(Making me you love you)
Yeah, I stopped using my head, using my head
Let it all go (let it all go)
Got you stuck on my body, on my body like a tattoo
(Like a tattoo, yeah)
And now I'm feeling stupid, feeling stupid crawling back to you (ah)

So I cross my heart, and I hope to die (yeah)
That I'll only stay with you one more night (oh-oh-oh)
And I know, I've said it a million times (yeah)
But I'll only stay with you one more night (yeah)
Ooh, ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh
Yeah, baby, give me one more night"

Neon Trees - Animal


"Here we go again
I kinda wanna be more than friends
So take it easy on me
I'm afraid you're never satisfied

Here we go again
We're sick like animals
We play pretend
You're just a cannibal
And I'm afraid I won't get out alive

Here we are again
I feel the chemicals kickin' in
It's gettin' heavier
I wanna run and hide
I wanna run and hide
I do it every time
You're killin' me now
And I won't be denied by you
The animal inside of you

Hush, hush, the world is quiet
Hush, hush we both can't fight it
It's us that made this mess
Why can't you understand?
Whoa, I won't sleep tonight
I won't sleep tonight

Oh, oh
I want some more
Oh, oh
What are you waitin' for?
Take a bite of my heart tonight
Oh, oh
I want some more
Oh, oh
What are you waitin' for?
What are you waitin' for?
Say goodbye to my heart tonight"

5sos - Teeth


"Some days, you're the only thing I know
Only thing that's burning when the nights grow cold
Can't look away, can't look away
Beg you to stay, beg you to stay, yeah
Sometimes, you're a stranger in my bed
Don't know if you love me or you want me dead
Push me away, push me away
Then beg me to stay, beg me to stay, yeah

Call me in the morning to apologize
Every little lie gives me butterflies
Something in the way you're looking through my eyes
Don't know if I'm gonna make it out alive

Fight so dirty, but you love so sweet
Talk so pretty, but your heart got teeth
Late night devil, put your hands on me
And never, never, never ever let go
Fight so dirty, but you love so sweet
Talk so pretty, but your heart got teeth
Late night devil, put your hands on me
And never, never, never ever let go

Some days, you're the best thing in my life
Sometimes when I look at you, I see my wife
Then you turn into somebody I don't know
And you push me away, push me away, yeah

Call me in the morning to apologize
Every little lie gives me butterflies
Something in the way you're looking through my eyes
Don't know if I'm gonna make it out alive

Blood on my shirt, rose in my hand
You're looking at me like you don't know who I am
Blood on my shirt, heart in my hand
Still beating"

I Know it's Over by the Smiths for some Spuffy angst, Spike introspective POV, s6, post break up, when their relationship was less romantic and more confused.

Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
And as I climb into an empty bed
Oh well. Enough said.


Spike missing Buffy. Reminiscing on death imagery/sensation, comparing it to his recent break up.

I know it's over - still I cling
I don't know where else I can go


In this moment he's thinking about Buffy not being in love with him, about their break up, feeling unwanted but still he won't leave Sunnydale, because where else would he go? He doesn't want to be alone.

Oh...
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
See, the sea wants to take me
The knife wants to slit me
Do you think you can help me?


Spike dealing with depressing thoughts after the break up. To me the sea can represent the sea of emotions that threaten to consume him. However, the addition of the knife line implies thoughts of suicide. Since Spike was known to engage in unhealthy coping mechanisms and have intense moods, this is a reflection of his mental state.

Sad veiled bride, please be happy
Handsome groom, give her room
Loud, loutish lover, treat her kindly
(Though she needs you
More than she loves you)


Referring to himself. He is the loud loutish lover. He recognizes that in S6 she needs him more than she loves him to feel alive. Buffy is the sad veiled bride who cannot be happy.
Another interpretation is that he's singing this to a future partner of Buffy, both wishing for her to be happy but also saying hey, Buffy might end up viewing you the way she viewed me, as source of comfort.

And I know it's over - still I cling
I don't know where else I can go
Over and over and over and over
Over and over, la...
I know it's over
And it never really began
But in my heart it was so real


He loves her so much and he thought he could make her see it, but it's over. It never really began because Buffy didn't start the relationship with loving him. The romance aspect was real to him but not to her. Of course, i believe that Buffy did love Spike at times in Season 6, but refuted it enough that this line makes sense.

And you even spoke to me, and said :
"If you're so funny
Then why are you on your own tonight ?
And if you're so clever
Then why are you on your own tonight ?
If you're so very entertaining
Then why are you on your own tonight ?
If you're so very good-looking
Why do you sleep alone tonight ?


He's questioning his self worth here, all alone.

I know...
'Cause tonight is just like any other night
That's why you're on your own tonight
With your triumphs and your charms
While they're in each other's arms..."


He's talking to himself. "that's why you're on your own tonight" means he's feeling like he isn't worthy enough.

It's so easy to laugh
It's so easy to hate
It takes strength to be gentle and kind
Over, over, over, over
It's so easy to laugh
It's so easy to hate
It takes guts to be gentle and kind
Over, over


It's easy to be a demon, evil, give into that. Love and relationships take work, as does vulnerability. So far, it has hurt him, but he's still trying.

Love is natural and real
But not for you, my love
Not tonight, my love


Love is natural and real, sure, but not for Spike! He's heartbroken, the woman he loves says she doesn't love him.

Love is natural and real
But not for such as you and I, my love


They have a broken, unnatural relationship in s6, there is no love for them together. This portrays their relationship as tragic and doomed. He's feeling hopeless, as if he and Buffy will never have that love he craves. (but ofc they do).

Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my ...
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can even feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my...


Spike likening the breakup to dying. And he would know, since he's died before.

Tbh, there are many Smiths songs that match their relationship when it was more on the toxic side. Any other interpretations?
