"Love Is The Drug" as written by Andrew Edwin Mackay and Bryan Ferry....
T'ain't no big thing
To wait for the bell to ring
T'ain't no big thing
The toll of the bell
Aggravated, spare for days

I troll downtown the red light place
Jump up bubble up, what's in store
Love is the drug and I need to score
Showing out, showing out, hit and run
Boy meets girl where the beat goes on
Stitched up tight, can't shake free
Love is the drug, got a hook on me

Oh oh catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh oh can't you see
Love is the drug for me
Late that night I park my car
Stake my place in the singles bar
Face to face, toe to toe
Heart to heart as we hit the floor
Lumber up, limbo down

The locked embrace, the stumble round
I say go, she say yes
Dim the lights, you can guess the rest
Oh oh catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh oh can't you see
Love is the drug, got a hook in me
Oh oh catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh oh can't you see
Love is the drug for me

    General CommentIt is what it is... just a hedonistic song about what I truly believe was typical nights for these guys.. the music is very good at mirroring it perfectly where I always felt there was a lot of ways it could have gone wrong.. it has a little bit of a creepy quality... a nice contract with disco, which is fairly creepy if you think about it, but never really sounds that way (as it deals with being a horn dog).....

    My InterpretationIt seems that "love is the drug" is not just metaphor here, but rather a description of actual sex addiction.

    General CommentI agree, I also think that 'love is the drug' isn't a metaphor, he is genuinely addicted to sex.
