I can't believe that nobody's mentioned "You're The Two" by The Roches! Such a happy, poly song.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNHnZzT2Sk0
"Some girls will settle for just one... they don't know what they're missin', they ain't havin' any fun!"

Then there's My Girlfriend's Girlfriend by Type O Negative (RIP Peter).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgkBWZXVLyk&ob=av3el <-- yum!!!
"It's no secret we're close... as sweaty velcro."
I especially like his line in this song "she looks like you"... who's to say exactly what he meant by it, but to me it says "yes it's an odd situation but the third is not some freak, she's just another person, just like you."

And let's not forget "Two Heads are Better than One" by Power Tool.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Vn-a_yqH4M
It's about two men who fight over a woman, realize how stupid it was, and decide that they'll only sleep with women they can share from then on. The song references them as brothers, I've always assumed that they were meant to be close friends, but who knows.
"We said you've gotta have both, she said 'That's a joke, it takes two just to get my attention!'"

Default Torn Between Two Lovers

The song "Torn Between Lovers" was one of the saddest songs ever written! Poly is such a happy alternative

Vote here for The Roches...

...also XTC's Green Man. Not a poly song per se, but it touches on all the kinds of love a primal, passionate archetype can raise and stroke in us:

It's also just a gorgeous song to hold your beloveds close and move together in among a group of supportive/loving souls.

I've been doing some poly-song research lately and here are a couple that came up..

Olivia Newton John, Culture Shock. A rather horrible tune but interesting lyrics.

A really beautiful song - Grace Slick, Triad.

A very sad song about a woman with multiple loves is Joni Mitchell's Cactus Tree.

Fun: Iris deMent and John Prine - Let's invite them over
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vws3JhPNYd8

Chris de Burgh - Much more than this

And a great rock song about threesomes: Joan Jett - The French Song

This old classic rock song came on the radio the other day, and it struck me that it could be about someone struggling with but ultimately accepting their lover having other loves, and asking to be a part of their lover's life in whatever way they can because they love them so much. Here are the lyrics, can you also see how I interpreted it that way?


Hello, it's me
I've thought about us for a long, long time
Maybe I think too much but something's wrong
There's something here that doesn't last too long
Maybe I shouldn't think of you as mine

Seeing you
Or seeing anything as much as I do you
I take for granted that you're always there
I take for granted that you just don't care
Sometimes I can't help seeing all the way through

It's important to me
That you know you are free
'Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You know that I'd be with you if I could
I'll come around to see you once in a while
Or if I ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think I should

It's important to me
That you know you are free
'Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You know that I'd be with you if I could
I'll come around to see you once in a while
Or if I ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think I should

Think of me...
Think of me...
Think of me.

(by Todd Rundgren, of course)
