"Pain Is So Close To Pleasure" as written by and Freddie/deacon Mercury....
Ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure, oh yeah
Sunshine and rainy weather go hand in hand together all your life
Ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure everybody knows
One day we love each other then we're fighting one another all the time
When I was young and just getting started
And people talked to me they sounded broken hearted
Then I grew up and got my imagination
And all I wanted was to start a new relation
So in love but love had a bad reaction
I was looking for some good old satisfaction
But pain is all I got when all I needed was some love and affection
Ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure, yeah, yeah
Sunshine and rainy weather go hand in hand together all your life
Pain and pleasure
Ooh, ooh, pain and pleasure

When your plans go wrong - you turn out the light
But inside of your mind you put up a fight
Where are the answers that we're all searching for
There's nothing in this world to be sure of anymore
Some days you're feeling good, some days you're feeling bad
But if you're feeling happy someone else is always sad
Let the sweetness on love wipe the tears from your face
For better for worse, so let's make the best of the rest of our years
Ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure, I told you so
Sunshine and rainy weather go hand in hand together all your life
Pain and pleasure, ooh, ooh, pain is so close to pleasure, yeah, yeah
Sunshine and rainy weather go hand in hand together all your life
All your life
Ooh ooh ooh
Pain - pleasure - pain - pleasure - pain - pleasure - pain - pleasure

    General CommentThis song is a stunning illustration of how to make a point about life.

    With happiness comes sadness.

    Just as with pleasure, pain can be jsut around the corner.

    When you are happy, it might mean someone else is sad.

    Its a great song that accurately describes the relationship people have together.

    Almost every couple fught one minute and are in love the next.

    The subtlety and thin line between two opposites.

    Beautiful song. Very sexy. Very 80's.

    General CommentHeh, S&M...that was one of my first thoughts on it, and it certainly fits the title. But looking at the lyrics, I would say it's about a relationship, like what Peelmaster was saying.

    General CommentI've always assumed that people have a tendency to hate this song. Perhaps I'm wrong. Barring the singles, it's probably the best track on A kind of magic, but that's just me.
