Songs that describe a particular player's career...

"Stole" by Kelly Rowland fits Monica's career pretty well, don't you think? (her life was stole/oh now we'll never know...)

Serena's game lately could be summarized by "Foolish Games" by Jewel, if one substitutes the figurative meaning of "games" for the literal, and substitute "brain" for heart . "These foolish games/are tearing me apart/and your brain's thoughtless ways/are breaking my heart."

Any others?

Serena when she's playing well is "Seven Nation Army" by the White Stripes. If she gets on a role, a "Seven nation army couldn't hold (her) down," and there are lots of other possible parallels in the song to Serena (unintentional, of course.)

Ain't Gonna Look the Other Way = Jennifer Cappy


Ain't Gonna Look The Other Way by Celine Dion

Used to be easy, used to have truth hangin' round
Never had secrets, always singing your praises now good and loud
All I got is questions, and you left me wondering why
Why you keep your distance, every lonely night

When love was bound together
We lived it by the letter
Can't close my eyes forever
'Cause everything has changed and now

Chorus:
I ain't gonna look the other way
No no
'Cause after all the clouds go by, its just another empty sky
I aint gonna wait to see the rain
No no
Nothin's gonna make it right, look at me 'cause I choose life

It's all about giving, it's not about winning the game
My mind was open, ready or not you closed it up again
Still I keep asking, if you got something to hide
I never stop learning, all the reasons why

It took about a minute
To find the point and hit it
Gotta take this life and live it
'Cause everyting has changed and now

Chorus

When all the lights go out so suddenly, I lose my way
Baby tell me
Is something going on
You gotta free me, this time I'm gonna be strong

Chorus

Anna Kournikova--When the Lights Go Down, by Faith Hill

When the Lights go down,
She'll be callin her friends from her Mercedes Benz,
but it's too late now...
They were there for the fame, the flash and the thrill,
the drop of the name, the parties, the pills,
as another star falls from the Hollywood hills, without a sound,

When the lights go down, and there's nothing left to be,
When the lights go down, and the truth is all you see,
when you feel that hole inside your soul,
and wonder what you're made of, well, we all find out,
when the lights go down.

You know, Manson actually has a song called "Sweet Tooth", this is super mean, I know, but I guess as a fan of Nastya I am allowed to do this

Before the Miami 03 final they played Vanessa Carlton's "Watch Me Shine" while airing flashes of Serena's Dominance..."better watch out, going for the knockout - and I would stop till I'm on top now - I'm taking over here so watch me shiiiiiiiine." At the time it was very appropriate for Serena's Career.
