"No Regrets, Just Love" Is NOT a Good Message
While this song has some WONDERFULLY sweet lyrics-- "You think I'm pretty, without any makeup on. You think I'm funny when I tell the punchline wrong," it has a message that I just can't get over no matter how much the rest of the song makes me happy. The bridge of the song says,
"Let's go all the way tonight. No regrets, just love."
This message I feel is really harmful to a lot of the tween dancers at my dance studio who sing along with and and know all the lyrics. That kind of mentality almost always amounts in regret and I think only older listeners who realize that should listen to the song. It also has a number of other racy lyrics like "Oh, you put your hands on me in my skin tight jeans, I'll be your teenage dream tonight"
Really, it's mostly the "let's go all the way tonight, no regrets" message that bothers me. Casually having sex with someone always results in regret.
