"Seductive Barry" as written by Jarvis Branson Cocker, Nick Banks, Candida Doyle, Stephen Patrick Mackey and Mark Andrew Webber....
Here in the night love takes control
Making me high
Making me whole
Here in the night love takes control
Making me high
Making me whole
I don't know
Oh, no, no, no
No, I don't know
No, no, no
No, I don't know

When I close my eyes, I can see you lowering yourself to my level
I don't know where you got those clothes
You can take them off if it makes you feel better

Don't stop it now
Now is so right
Now as the day slips away
And we slide into night
I don't know
Oh, no, no, no
No, I don't know know
No, no, no
No, I don't know

I open my eyes and you're there
Even better in the flesh, it would seem
I'm so ready and willing and able it's untrue
To act out this love scene
And make my dreams come true
And how many others have touched themselves whilst looking at pictures of you?
How many others could handle it if all their dreams came true?
I don't expect you to answer straight away
Maybe you're just having an off day
But I need to believe in you
Yes I do
Yes I do

Oh, I want you here in my head
Here in my heart
Here in my head
Live all your dreams for tonight
Here in your bed
I don't know
Oh, no, no, no
No, I don't know
No, no, no
No, I don't know

So roll the soundtrack and dim the lights
'Cause I'm not going home tonight
This love scene has begun
There's nothing left but get it on
Let's make this the greatest love scene from a play no-one's thought up yet
I know you're feeling the same as me but what you gonna do about it?
Now here's an exclusive
I've wanted you for years
I only needed the balls to admit it
When the unbelievable object meets the unstoppable force
There's nothing you can do about it
No
I will light your cigarette with a star that has fallen from the sky
Breathe in, breathe out
I love the way you move
Don't let anyone tell you any different tonight
You are beauty, you are class
You showed it all, but you still kept a little piece back just for me
A little piece back just for me
Just for me
Oh, I don't know how you do it
But I love the way you do it
When you're doing it to me
Na-na-na-na, na-na-na, na-na-na
And if this is a dream then I'm going to sleep for the rest of my life
For the rest of my life
For the rest of my life
For the rest of my life
Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo
Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo

    General Commentdamn... is he actually with this girl? i'm sortof thinking that he is just fantasizing... especially since he says and make my dreams come true.
    And how many others have touched themselves
    whilst looking at pictures of you?
    How many others could handle it if all their dreams came true?
    it really makes me think that maybe she's just a girl from a magazine or something and he wants to live out his fantasies with her

    General CommentI get the idea that they didn't want it to be like a Barry White song - like, come bask in how sexy I am. But he's moved on from just basking in how sexy she is, too. It's like both of the people in the song have wanted each other for ages, they're each the object of the other's fantasies, and now they finally get to play it out... I think?

    General Commentmm this song, is so love/hate for me...
    I dunno why i can't stop hearing it (actually im hearing it now).. maybe just revolutionize my hormones...
    And sometimes the sound is pretty good, especially in the
    "I don't know.
    Oh no no no."

    But God! how I hate the title... :P

    I don't think that the character is fantasising, he probably touched himself looking a picture of her in the past, he dreamed with her a long time, and now he meet her and is gonna make his dreams come true... It's basically a song about how a simple dream can become true when you're famous and powerful...
    or maybe not xD

    General CommentI'm surprised at the negativity - I love this song. And the line "I will light your cigarette with a star that has fallen from the sky"... the perfect mix of seedy and pure.

    General CommentI think this song is extremely creepy and kind of stalkeresque.
    Same plot/ person as This Is Hardcore?

    General CommentI quite like this track. Like a lot of Pulp songs it's a very sexual song done in a very sexy manner, unlike say a typical RnB track talking about booty and titties which is crass and totally in your face.

    Without wanting to sound like some greasy, bristling chest hair 'ladies man' this track is nice to listen to in the early hours of the morning when you are spending the night in bed with someone special.

    General CommentListen to this with the lights out, lying by yourself, or with the object of your desires, drift along with the hypnotic lyrics and the wash over strings, then decide for yourself whether this is about reality or fantasy, or both. Whatever you decide this song will never leave you, whether you find it sensual or seedy!

    General CommentGreat title crap song.

    Sorry, I want to like it but while about half of Hardcore is some of Pulp's best work the other half is decidedly average.
