->''"Laundry day, see you there\\
Under things, tumbling\\
Want to say, 'Love your hair'\\
Here I go... mumbling\\
With my freeze ray, I will stop the world"''
-->--'''Dr. Horrible''', "My Freeze Ray", from ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog''

The song sung by a villain who is attempting to seduce another character.

Generally not a full-blown VillainSong -- hey, the villain's trying to ''impress'' someone, and [[KickTheDog blatantly reveling in puppy-punting]] has a knack for driving away potential love interests. Villains in love with other villains go under UnholyMatrimony.

Contrast FinalLoveDuet.



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* "Silent Voice," the second OP from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ''. It's a VillainSong from Haman Khan's point of view about her [[DatingCatwoman complicated feelings]] for Judau Ashta. Also an IWantSong.

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* "Don't Make Me Laugh" from ''WesternAnimation/ThePebbleAndThePenguin'' especially qualifies...
-->"So right this way to the Drake estate or write your epitaph
-->You choose your fate
-->Don't make me wait
-->And baby... don't make me '''''laugh!!!!!!'''''"
* "Hellfire" from the Disney adaption of ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' is a strange Villain Love Song that is also a VillainSong, an IWantSong, and an ObsessionSong - with a bit of SanitySlippageSong for good measure. It's that awesome.
* From ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'', we get a different example: the movie's real villain, Saddam Hussein, seducing AntiVillain {{Satan}} into taking him back so that Saddam can take over Earth. ItMakesSenseInContext.
* [[spoiler:Love is an Open Door]] from {{Disney/Frozen}}. Subverted, since [[spoiler: Hans was never in love with Anna and was actually lying and manipulating her into believing that he was]].
* ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'' uses "C'mon Marianne" by Music/FrankieValliAndTheFourSeasons to serve this purpose
* Though hopefully not a sexual kind of love being promised, "Trust in Me" from ''Disney/TheJungleBook'', sung by Kaa the snake as he tries to lull Mowgli into a false sense of security and eat him.


[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* "As the World Falls Down" and "Within You" from ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'', though the latter is more "[[IfICantHaveYou If I can't have you, why should I bother existing!]]"
* While it could be said that anytime Dr. Frank-N-Furter is singing in ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' he's seducing someone, the show has an interesting subversion in "Touch-a Touch-a Touch-a Touch Me" where Janet sings a song about how the bad doctor seduced her, and how it changed her -- to the point that she's now seducing Rocky.
* Disney's 1961 film version of Victor Herbert's ''Film/BabesInToyland'' features the Crooked Little Man Mr. Barnaby (Ray Bolger) attempting to seduce Mary Contrary (Annette Funicello) with the song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDP0TWJSgDI Castle in Spain]].
* ''Film/ChittyChittyBangBang'': The Baron's Bomburst's song to his [[TheBaroness Baroness]] wife, "You're My Little Chuchi Face". He spends the whole song trying to kill her.
* The title song from ''Film/GoldenEye'' qualifies (despite having nothing to do with the actual motives of the film's villain) as does the one from ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough''. The latter, however, is only apparent after the film's major reveal.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* "Sweet's Song" from the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' MusicalEpisode.
** Plus played with to some extent Spike's "Rest in Peace."
* "Come Melt Into Me" from the ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' MusicalEpisode. Turns into WeCanRuleTogether towards the end.
* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' had Dr. Forrester sing "Who Will I Kill?" about TV's Frank after the latter's AscensionToAHigherPlaneOfExistence. [[{{Understatement}} It's pretty suggestive.]]

* Goethe's poem ''Der Erlkönig'' has been set to music by many composers, but Schubert's version features a particularly beautiful and [[LyricalDissonance chilling]] melody from the Erlking to the young boy, meant to entice him. His final lines, translated:
--->"I love you, your beautiful form entices me,
--->And if you're not willing, I shall use force."
* The Music/BlackSabbath song N.I.B. probobly qualifies, since the narrator is apparently Satan.
* Wednesday 13 and his associated acts have quite a few. To name a few:
** "Love at First Fright" is a love song to the girl from ''Film/TheExorcist'', from the perspective of the demon possessing her.
** "Ghoul of My Dreams" is a somewhat campy vampire confessing his love.
** "Happily Ever Cadaver" takes this for a bizarre twist, in that it is about a transvestite grave robber swooning over the latest corpse he's dug up. And, yes, the POV character is explicitly stated to be a transvestite.
* Inverted by Music/TheMegas with "Don't Mess With Magnet Man", which takes place after the villain's won and then lost the girl, and wants her back, but the more immediate problem is [[MySisterIsOffLimits her heavily-armed brother.]]
* "Skullcrusher Mountain" by Music/JonathanCoulton is about a villainous MadScientist confessing his (implicitly genuine) love for [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty his female captive]].
* "Crown & Ice" in Music/SteeleyeSpan's ConceptAlbum version of the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ''Discworld/{{Wintersmith}}'' is sung by the Wintersmith after he's taken Tiffany to the IcePalace:
-->This is my world, but it could be ours,
-->I asked you once and I asked you twice,
-->To be my bride in the crystal kingdom,
-->You look so pretty in a crown of ice.

* "If You Could See You" from ''Theatre/Portal2TheUnauthorizedMusical'' is this. The scene starts with Cave Johnson confessing his love to Caroline, and ends with [[spoiler: Cave ordering Caroline to be [[BrainUploading put in a computer]] [[MindRape against her will]]]].
-->'''Cave:''' ''I understand your objection / But, yes or no, we'll begin / If you could see you through my eyes...'' Well... [[IronicEcho Say goodbye, Caroline]].
* "September Song" from ''Theatre/KnickerbockerHoliday'' is an early example.
* "Whatever Lola Wants" from ''Theatre/DamnYankees''.
* "My Love" from ''Candide''.
* A LongList from ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'':
** "The Mirror"
** "The Music of the Night"
** "Wandering Child"
** "Point of No Return"
** "Down Once More"
* "A Dangerous Game" from ''Theatre/JekyllAndHyde''.
* "Special" from ''Theatre/AvenueQ''.
* "Me" from the stage version of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''.
* "Hello, Little Girl" and "Any Moment" from ''Theatre/{{Into the Woods}}''.
* ''l Dead The Musical'' sets this trope to happy circus music in "Join Us" and again in "Housewares Employee (Reprise)"
* Inverted in ''Theatre/TheMikado'': the meek Ko-Ko courts the terrifying antagonist Katisha in a duet they sing about how there is beauty in scary things like storms and fierce animals.
* In a weird twist of Plant/Human Relations, "Feed Me" From Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors qualifies as Audrey II seduces Seymour with images of money, power, and love.
** And later, the plant does the same thing to Audrey. [[spoiler:Right before it tries to eat her]].
* ''Film/YoungFrankenstein TheMusical'' has a truly odd take on this in "Please Don't Touch Me" including a dance number with everyone dancing together and not touching.
* The Snake from ''Theatre/ChildrenOfEden'' has a song tempting Eve to eat the apple called "In Pursuit of Excellence". Different in that the snake is played by a harmonizing quartet and the entire song consists of inspirational catchphrases ripped from motivational posters.
* Herbert's part in "Wenn Liebe in dir ist" from ''Theatre/TanzDerVampire'' can be seen as one of these, [[FlamboyantGay in his own]] [[LesbianVampire special way]]. (This largely depends on the ratio of [[TheWoobie woobieness]] to [[DepravedHomosexual pervertedness]] he's played with.) More straightforwardly, there's practically ''all'' of Graf von Krolock's musical interaction with Sarah.
** And considering what happens to Sarah, her FinalLoveDuet with Alfred may qualify as this on her side too. (The fact that Sarah ''likes'' all of her interaction with Krolock, and is not particularly nice to begin with in her own right, makes all of her singing a bit morally ambiguous as well...)
*** Magda (victim who decides she likes a debatable villain) and Chagal's (said debatable villain) song in their shared coffin may also count.
*** Can we safely decide that ''Tanz'' likes its villainous love songs? And its villains.
*** It says a lot about the show that the audience typically thinks of the Hunter as a douchebag by the end of it, and not only as a result of MisaimedFandom. You're ''supposed'' to like the vampires.
* In ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'', "A Little Priest" ''may'' fall under this, as it ''is'' a villain seducing the hero. The thing is, it's [[VillainProtagonist Sweeney]] who is being, er, "seduced" by [[PerkyFemaleMinion Mrs.]] [[{{Yandere}} Lovett]] to go with her [[ImAHumanitarian idea.]] "By the Sea" and her part of "My Friends" sit in this trope a bit more firmly (although see the Dr. Horrible example above.)
** A probably better example would be Turpin's "Johanna", in which he's not directly singing to her (much like the Dr. Horrible examples), but is expressing his extreme lust for her.
* Pepe Cibrián's ''Dracula'' musical has both ''Dracula's Love Theme'' and ''My Sweet Mina''.
* Frank Wildhorn's version of Dracula is full of these:
** "Forever Young" (the three Brides to Jonathan Harker)
** "Life After Life" (Dracula and Lucy; it only sort of fits because by this point Dracula sees Lucy as purely the "spearhead" of his plans for vampire conquest and addresses her more like a father/creator than a lover)
** "You Already Love Me/Please Don't Make Me Love You" Dracula and Mina.
* Another Wildhorn example: In ''Theatre/TheScarletPimpernel'', Chauvelin sings "Where's the Girl?" to Maugerite in an attempt to rekindle their old romance as well as to remind her of their mutual passion for UsefulNotes/TheFrenchRevolution. She rejects him.
* 'Bolero Di Amor' from ''Copacabana''.
* "Lost and Found" from ''Theatre/CityOfAngels''.
* ''Music/{{Evita}}'' has two. "I'd Be Surprisingly Good for You", in which Eva Duarte meets future husband and budding politician Juan Peron, and convinces him that they'd be perfect for each other. She's shamelessly manipulating him, as she does for their entire marriage - if he knows yet depends on the production. And then there's "Waltz for Eva and Che", which isn't quite a love song as much as Eva and Che manipulating and sniping at each other's perceived faults.
%%* [[EvilIsSexy "Evil is Hot"]] from ''Theatre/TheToxicAvenger'' musical.
* "Etre pretre et aimer une femme" (Frollo about Esmeralda) from Theatre/NotreDameDeParis.
** He also has "Tu Vas Me Détruire", which is the play equivalent of "Hellfire".
* ''Theatre/{{Assassins}}'' has "Unworthy Of Your Love," sung by John Hinckley to Jodie Foster and Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme to Charles Manson.
* ''Theatre/ThrillMe'' has "There's Nothing Like a Fire", which is Richard singing about how sexually exciting Richard finds arson. Nathan doesn't need much convincing. There are also several other songs that fall under this trope--"A Written Contract" is Richard convincing Nathan to continue being his accomplice by offering a contract that would require Richard to have sex with him; "Supeior" is Richard bragging about their crimes to get Nathan into bed; and "Keep Your Deal with Me" culminates in Richard making out with Nathan to stop Nathan turning them in. Additionally, "Roadster" ''isn't'' this, since Richard has no interest in the boy he's singing to, but Richard ''is'' using his charms to convince the boy it's safe to take a ride with him, so it's written--and occasionally performed--in approximately this style.
* Inverted in ''Theatre/TheGoldenApple'', where Helen sings "Lazy Afternoon" to SilentAntagonist Paris.
* "Our Love is God" and "Meant To Be Yours", from ''Theatre/{{Heathers}}''. The former starts very softly, like a very sweet love song, but slowly gets more ominous as [[spoiler: JD actually kills Kurt and Ram, to Veronica's horror]]. In the latter you have JD begging Veronica not to fight with him anymore and telling her that they're meant to be together, while simultaneously [[spoiler: threatening to kill her for leaving him and detailing his plan to ''blow up their high school.'']]
* "You'll Be Back" from ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' is this on an international scale, with King George III trying to win back an estranged America's love... by sending legions of troops over to squash the revolution.
* "Nos Corps à la Dérive" (Our Drifting Bodies) from the French musical ''Theatre/LaLegendeDuRoiArthur'' has [[TheDragon Méléagant]] singing to the kidnapped and chained Guenièvre about how he loves and desires her - even going so far as to say her scorn doesn't bother him, because he loves that, too. Guenièvre repudiates his advances, after which he [[spoiler: attempts to rape her, though he's interrupted by the arrival of Lancelot.]]
* "Die Schatten werden länger (Reprise)" from ''Theatre/{{Elisabeth}}'' is Death and Rudolf's seduction duet. Death also sings "Der letzte Tanz" to gloat to Elisabeth that she loves him despite marrying Franz Joseph, as well as dueting "Wenn ich tanzen will" with Elisabeth to insist that she's playing straight into his hands because they are so alike.

* ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'' has "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2ZAVR_np3E A Simple Request]]", a song sung by [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Ganondorf]] about his love for...[[CargoShip the Triforce]].

[[folder:Web Original]]
* While the heroine seemed to be unable to hear either song "My Freeze Ray" and parts of "Brand New Day" from ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'' fit this.
** It's not just that the heroine isn't moved... it's that she doesn't even ''know''.
** Crosses into StalkerWithACrush territory in "My Eyes"
** Considering Dr. Horrible's [[PerspectiveFlip Perspective Flipped]] outlook, Captain Hammer's part of "A Man's Gotta Do" might also fit this.
* Uberexample: "Skullcrusher Mountain" by Jonathan Coulton.
** Also "Live", Paul and Storm's Masters of Song Fu Round 2 entry/response to "Skullcrusher Mountain".

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* "If Only" in the MusicalEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' is actually a LoveTriangle duet. The villainous portion is sung by Music Meister about his adoration of Black Canary, while the heroic portion is by Black Canary about her crush on Batman. Canary reacts in horror when she realizes they've been singing 'in tune' together and rejects Meister at the end of the song.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvengerPenguins'' has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yO__8t6p3GM 'Slime Girl']], a song sung by the main villain's sidekick Harry Slime about his dream girl. It has some...pleasant images.
* "Evil Love" from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''. An EarWorm which will stay in your head for WEEKS
* Dr. Blowhole from ''Westernanimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' manages to win the heart of a... [[ItMakesSenseInContext mutated evil music player]] with a song by the name of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKc7czYKsE4 '"Porpoise Power Ballad"']]. Blowhole is voiced by [[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog Neil Patrick Harris]] so it's no surprise that one of his villainous voice roles would break out in song.
* Conversely [[spoiler: Ice Queen manages to do that disguised as Prince Gumball]] in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' episode [[spoiler:[[RuleSixtyThree "Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake"]]]].
** Ice King practices singing to Princess Bubblegum in "I Remember You". The song starts out kind of sweet about how he likes her the best of all the princesses, quickly starts sounding a little creepy, but becomes heart-wrenching near the end, when Ice King admits that he has become desperate for somebody, anybody, to keep him from feeling lonely or at least help him understand why nobody likes him.
