"Mad About You" as written by and Alex Callier....
Feel the vibe,
Feel the terror,
Feel the pain,
It's driving me insane.
I can't fake,
For God's sake why am I driving in the wrong lane
Trouble is my middle name.
But in the end I'm not too bad
Can someone tell me if it's wrong to be so mad about you

Mad about you,
Mad

Are you the fishy wine that will give me a headache in the morning
Or just a dark blue land mine that explode without a decent warning.
Give me all your true hate and I'll translate it in our bed,
Into never seen passion, never seen passion
That is why I am so mad about you

Mad about you,
Mad

Trouble is your middle name.
But at the end you're not too bad
Can someone tell me if it's wrong to be so mad about you

Mad about you
Mad about you
Mad about you
Mad about you

Give me all your true hate and I'll translate it in our bed,
Into never seen passion, never seen passion
That is why I am so mad about you

Mad about you
Mad about you
Mad about you
Mad about you
Mad about you
Mad about you

    General Commentthis is one of the most beautiful songs i've heard. I love it since the first time i heard it

    Especially these lines are very beautiful:
    "give me all your true hate
    and I'll translate it in our bed
    into never seen passion, never seen passion
    that it why I am so mad about you"

    the song is about being totally mad about someone, but she sings that trouble the middle name is of herself AND of the person she's crazy about, but if it's wrong to be mad about him? So i think she has her insecurities about them as a couple. But that's only my opinion, this song can mean something different to you

    General CommentI just love her voice, especially in combination with the melody. This song is so romantic, but without being cliche.

    And to AlairaKasimer: I happen to be Dutch, and I can assure you that most people from Holland and Belgium can speak English. I doubt Hooverphonic are writing songs by placing some random words in some fairly random order.

    General Commenti just wanted to note that people from belgium and the netherlands (speaking flemish and dutch which is the same difference as american and brittish english, so actually the same) speak english pretty well. We are exposed to the language from a very young age through music and films. We always use subtitels and never dub, which means, from the moment we start watching tv, we are exposed to the language, which means it comes quite natural to most of us. Hooverphonic does not just scramble words together, they can however be somewhat freaky ;)

    General CommentThis song is really beautiful. The lyrics tend to be poetic, and I agree with kowgum that her voice is really awsome, and the melody, sounding jazzy, matches perfectly with. Of course it has simple meaning, because being crazily in love with somebody is one of the most simple things- it happens, and that's the way it is; you can't explain it, translate it or explore its roots and purposes. This song expresses really beautiful this perplexly simple situation, and I love it.

    General CommentThis song screams out the emotions of love and being madly in love with someone and the verse 'give me all your true hate and I'll translate it in your bed' brings a sexual and slightly masochistic/sadistic element to it... possibly meaning that really... the person the singer is mad about isn't expressing much love in return, hence the melancholic and despairing sound of the song... beautiful though, I love sad-sounding minor keys... hehe... anyway... this song is basically about someone being head over heels and helplessly in love with a person but has a certain madness and obsession to it... that it could be considered scary and unhealthy by some people.

    General CommentI love this song...
    My favourite part is "Give me all your true hate and I'll translate it in our bed, into never seen the passion"

    Anyway, I think she knows she may be wrong but can't help being mad about him. She does well if you want my opinion xD, they are both in troubleee. Perfect for each other.. :P
    Reminds me of my situation for sure :>

    General CommentI think the song is pretty straightforward in its lyrics, but has anyone seen the music video? THAT totally confused me...
