10 Songs That Prove the Love of Gen Xers Is Purer Than the 'Love' of Millennials

Based on the dearth of legitimate love songs in today's music, I fear for the future. I mean, have you heard what millennials try to pass off as love songs? Listen to the current mega-hit "We Don't Talk Anymore" by Charlie Puth and featuring Selena Gomez, for an example. "We Don't Talk Anymore" is a proud demonstration of the current view of love that believes physical and emotional distance as well as being served by someone else are normal attributes in a relationship. If that's representative of what millennials think, and it almost certainly is, the only possible conclusion is that Gen X may be the last generation to truly understand love.

Thankfully, the love songs of Gen X have survived (so far) the ongoing hurt feelings purge conducted by the tyrannically sensitive millennials. Following are the ten best Gen X love songs that prove that being loved by a Gen Xer means more than being "loved" by a millennial. Enjoy the following songs, while you still can.

Once we figured out what Meatloaf meant by that "that," we concurred.
