In celebration of Valentine's Day yesterday and the fact that this song is currently their 9th most popular track on Spotify (ahead of 'Touch' & recent single 'Bounce Back'!) let's hear your opinions on 'Love Me Or Leave Me'.



So how do you feel about this song? Has your opinion changed on it over time? Should it have been a single?

Feel free to partake in previous ones.

I love me a good, power ballad and this one really excels and showcases the most underrated thing about the girls... their individual voices. From Jesy & Jade's tender and delicate verses, to Perrie's powerful, yet restricted chorus right through to Jade's stunning middle 8 and then climaxing on Leigh's finest vocal moment to date in the extremely powerful final chorus... this really did the most in showcasing the girls vocals individually. It's really special when Leigh-Anne gets the spotlight. She didn't come to play.

One of my absolute favourite Little Mix songs. It reached #9 in my countdown last Summer. I really would've loved to have seen this as the 5th single from the era, but after how well that era and the singles turned out for them, I'm not annoyed that it didn't get the single treatment. Kinda makes it more special, knowing this is for the fans wub.gif

I’m not that keen on it tbh. It’s like in their bottom half of their discography for me. It doesn’t really mean it’s bad it’s just the actual style of it doesn’t feel very natural if that makes sense idk.

I always think Jades opening line is gonna say something very different as well everytime I hear it and I can’t Unhear that either. I actually think this song feels huge though much bigger than its peak suggests. They do deliver it well vocally though but I wouldn’t really go out my way to listen to this on its own the way I do some of their other hits.

This isn't Love Me Like You laugh.gif It's an album track tongue.gif

Oh and the "Ca-a-ar" is a big play on words and is MEANT to sound like she's singing it biggrin.gif

In fairness, Get Weird is absolutely stacked with songs with 'Love' in the title so understandable mistake. laugh.gif

'Love Me or Leave Me' is decent enough but I wouldn't consider it a career highlight. I find it a bit too overwraught and forced, but the chorus is pretty undeniable. Towers', 'Monster In Me' and SLS are by far their holy trinity of ballads imo.

Sorry, I'm not a fan of this song at all! I find Perrie and Leigh-Anne so screechy I've barely listened to it at all.

Their best ballad behind SLS wub.gif Leigh-Anne excels but they all shine in their individual parts.

Please get rid of my other post! Or move it to a thread discussing that track
I totally misread the title. The Get Weird album has so many love related tracks on it laugh.gif laugh.gif


This is actually one of my favourites by them tbh! I love Leigh on this too heart.gif smile.gif
