Friday Music: "As Long as He Needs Me" and "Stay" (trigger warning)

I give you "As Long as He Needs Me" (1960) from the Oliver! soundtrack:

Compare to Rihanna's "Stay" (2013):

Both songs involve women wrestling with their love for men after those men have beaten them and could be used to stimulate conversation about domestic violence and the structural and individual constraints to women in abusive relationships.
