A lot of people have that playlist dedicated to expressing the sultry, mysterious feelings that we identify as love. Many songs have electric, colorful ways of painting the sensation of infatuation. Well, guess what. Behind the lyrics there is a lot more than just heartfelt singing, or gushy tunes. Even the title can give away the basis of what love can do to any human being.

When venturing into the battlefield of love, it is always important to come with a shield and sword. Not a literal shield and sword of course, but in metaphoric terms. Shield your heart from those who only come to break your heart, and use your sword to weed out those who really are in it to win it. No matter which version you prefer, the 80's song by Pat Benetar, or the contemporary Jordin Sparks version, the song illustrates the passionate battle that happens with love.
