When love and hate collide

When love and hate collide is the song that I heard a couple of Def Leppard's Greatest Hits times in one of the FM stations in Manila during my vacation and also in one of Dubai’s FM stations on my way back to Riyadh.

It was funny and somewhat strange though that every time it was on air I was busy with something and always had the end of the song. For whatever reasons, I was intrigued by these words – when love and hate collide.

This made me thinking for days just to come up with something logical that would explain what it really meant. The closest that my limited brain could relate to was the one that says opposite poles attract. Unfortunately, even this does not satisfy me.

Today, I give up the though that I could come up with a logical explanation to this. So, I just decided to put these questions to you.

Is it possible that love and hate collide? Assuming that it is indeed possible, what do you think will prevail, love or hate? When love and hate collide, what will the result be?

Please help me. Laki ng problema ko ano? LOL.

The song “When love and hate collide” is part of these albums by Def Leppard: Greatest Hits 1980 Vault 1995 and Vault: Def Leppard Greatest Hits

    para sa akin naman, madali lang ekspleyn ang love and hate collide. paniwala ko kasi “hate” and “love” are not opposites. di ba kasabihan nga na “hate is not the opposite of love. indifference is”. in fact “hate” is sometimes a deeper manifestation of love. kapag nag-away kayong mag-asawa, halimbawa, nahuli ka niyang nantsi-chicks, may time na matindi ang hate niya sa yo. bakit? kasi love ka niya. galit siya kasi hindi niya nakita sa yo ang the same love na ibinibigay niya. so if we really think about it, it’s common for hate and love to collide. and when they do, love wins more often than not. love and indifference never collide. kapag indifferent na sa yo ang isang tao, there’s almost no chance na mamahalin ka pa niya.

    Puede bang mag post ng “same as above” or -do- 🙂 I agree to what ka-uro said. That’s the point actually. In the end love wins, if you still love each other.

    The song sounds familiar. On the other hand, sabi nga ni Annie Lennox of Eurythmics, “There’s a thin line between love and hate”.

    Love and Hate… isn’t an opposite… we can feel it both at the same time, may be thats what the song try to tell us.
    How about that?

    the song lyric:
    I don’t wanna fight no more, I don’t know what we’re fighting for
    When we treat each other baby, like an act of war
    I could tell a million lies and it would come as no surprise
    When the truth is like a stranger, hits you right between the eyes

    Love and hate are two of the same as they are both the same type of passion. My bf cheated on me yet i still loved him but hated him at the same time…this song is exactly what occurred afterwards and it’s how we both felt. I’d say that when love and hate collide it’s one of the strongest and most confusing emotions of all time! As to which prevails – i think it depends on the situation and how much the mind/brain has to do with it!

    probably it happens when you love some one so much that you hate it……

    di puwedeng maghalo ang love and hate, kasi ang ending – separation. LOL.

    the stronger one is the one that will prevail. pero meron ups and downs yan. there are times when love is stronger, and vice versa.

    kaya dapat – sa isang relationship, love lang talaga. di puwede may hate.
