Today, after an argument with my pianist girlfriend about how bad my favourite song would sound on the piano, she stormed out of the room crying, leaving behind a CD. It was the piano version of the song she'd made for me. FML

You'd be surprised what sounds good on piano, OP. Hell, I've even heard piano versions of Whip My Hair by Willow Smith that sound good!


He shouldn't have been so harsh about it. He needs to apologize to her, spoil her for an evening and ask her to perform the song on the piano, because he will love it. He's already admitted that he's a douche, per his username.

Technically, he shouldn't have to. It's not like the girlfriend showed him the cover first, and then he commented on how bad it was. He didn't know, and she got way too sensitive over something so minor and a small. Honestly.

You are obviously not a musician.... We take our art very seriously, if my wife told me to stop singing our favorite song, I would be just as angry.

He didnt need to be a dick about it though.

How would that make him a dick. He had no idea what she done for him. Otherwise he would have kept his mouth shut and went with it because of the thought that she put behind it. Sorry op. listen to it than tell her she was right. It is an awesome song to listen to on the piano. Or at least an "ok"song. Or something that would show you appreciated what and she had done.

He argued with her, if he had listened he may not have had to go this far as to make her cry and leave.

"He argued with her" Yeah, that's what people tend to do sometimes in their relationship, arguing. That doesn't make them dicks. In my humble opinion, the girlfriend is more to blame than the OP. She could have avoided the argument by saying: "If you think your song will sound bad, you really have to listen to this piano version I made for you" or something similar. And if OP still didn't like it, she should suck it up. If he doesn't like a particular song on the piano, it doesn't mean he doesn't like her (playing the piano). OP's girlfriend has to realise that.

Arguing doesn't make you a dick, true, but it can help avoid problems, can't it? I didn't say he was a dick.

This one really bothers me because it's like she set him up for a fight. I doubt the conversation would have gotten as heated if they were just talking hypothetically and she hadn't made a CD. He didn't know. How could he? She got defensive in a conversation that was a trap to see how he might feel about her gift. She should have been confident about her gift and just given it.

I just can't imagine someone arguing so passionately about something so stupid. Let alone, passionately enough to make their girlfriend cry, over something, once again, that is so STUPID. SHE'S the pianist, the least he could have done was asked her to prove it. That to me sounds like a dick. Yes, couples argue. Yes, he didn't know. But seriously, when you get something so stupid become that heated that you make someone cry, you're a dick.

82- It takes 2 to have make-up sex too!

I can understand where she's coming from... if I get my boyfriend something I'm not sure he'll like, I ask his opinion of it and if he responds negatively I just don't give it to him. However, if she was going to cry about it in the end, she should have just told him from the start. I feel bad for both of them. Not OP's fault though.

Did you like the song and if so tell her it was way better than you expected

Even if he (or she since there isn't a gender specified) didn't like it OP should still pretend to like it. And make it up to her!

The girlfriend has the perfect ammo to decide who was right. Why did she not present it earlier?

While that would have made her feel better the reason she asked was to see if he/she was sincere about what he/she said.

You'd be surprised what sounds good on piano, OP. Hell, I've even heard piano versions of Whip My Hair by Willow Smith that sound good!

I think Neil young (played by Jimmy Fallon) and Bruce Springsteen played it the best

There's a Piano Bar in my area that takes all kinds of song requests. It's amazing to hear some songs in this form!(:

A piano bar? That's a really cool idea. I wonder if there's something like that around my area. Piano versions of any song sounds great if done well enough in my opinion.

75, they are usually called dual-piano bars. And they are incredible. Howl Over the Moon at Universal City Walk, is by far, my favorite.

I think it'd be hilarious if OP's favourite song actually WAS "Whip my Hair Back and Forth".

Anything is better than the original version of "whip my hair"

I'm dying to hear how she played dubstep on the piano

So, you're just assuming his favorite song must be dubstep? That's a pretty slim chance considering there are like 30+ other genres out there.

I hope you can make her feel better... even if the song doesn't sound good on the piano but she should've cried over that though.

I think she is trying to say that op should make his girlfriend feel better even if the song doesn't sound good. She should not have cried over his comment/ their argument? I'm just guessing though because the comment is not worded right.

Substitute "should've" with "shouldn't have".

She was only trying to clarify for those who didn't understand......

should probably work on punctuation that would have made this comment easier to understand

99 - The irony is dripping from your comment. Whether it was intentional or not, I still don't know.

damn /: im ashamed. i deserved that

-105 not intetional. i made a stupid mistake

oh god, crying is worse than being angry... make it up to her in every way possible... fyl, and fherlife.

She wanted nothing more than to impress you. That girl cares about you, OP. It would likely be in your best interest to make it up to her.
