"Love in Stereo" as written by and Kay Fitch Art Fitch....
Oh, oh, oh, oh . . .
Ooo-oh, ooo-oh . . .
Yeah yeah yeah . . .

Why am I in love in stereo,
with a girl on either side?
You might well look on and envy me,
but this feeling isn't so hi-fi.

Just a boy in love in stereo,
when we dance it's not much fun.
I can't choose 'cause they're identical,
and I can't move without the other one.

One wants to stay at home,
the other wants a night out.
One wants to read in bed,
the other wants the light out.
I really don’t know what to do
'cause I’m in love with you--and you--and you.

Oh, oh, oh, oh . . .
Ooo-oh, ooo-oh . . .
Yeah yeah yeah . . .

Why am I in love in stereo,
where to start I can't decide,
'cause making love is two-dimensional
and I'm much more a mono man inside.

Now that I'm in love in stereo,
there's one thing I can’t deny:
when we kiss we reach high frequencies
but I'd prefer the reproduction side.

One wants to stay at home,
the other wants a night out.
One wants to read in bed,
the other wants the light out.
One wants to marry me,
the other wants to break up.
One wants to call it off,
the other wants to make up.
I really don’t know what to do
’cause I’m in love with you--and you--and you.

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh . . .

Why am I--
in love in stereo?
Ooh why am I--
in love in stereo?
I said, "Why am I in love in stereo?"
Why am I in love in stereo? . . .

    Song MeaningSome have suggested that this song is about polyamory, the practice of multiple simultaneous openly-engaged-in romantic relationships--think polygamy (or polyandry) without the marriage. In fact, at one time, Googling this song gave hits mostly on websites devoted to polyamory, and listed this as a song on the subject.

    However, I am not at all sure that is correct. I suspect that "I can't choose 'cause they're identical" uses "identical" to mean something more like "sharing the same identity, that is, one and the same". I think he is (sort-of) complaining that his girlfriend shows wild variances in what she wants to do etc. with no apparent warning. She changes her mind all the time for no apparent reason.

    Why? Well first off there are not too many women in the UK who would tolerate their boyfriend carrying on so openly with another woman that the three of them would all dance together, much less all sleep in the same bed ("One wants to read in bed / the other wants the light out"). Second, that "One wants to marry me / the other wants to break up / One wants to call it off / the other wants to make up," would hardly seem to present any unusual problem: if he had an unmanageable two girlfriends, he would be going to just having one. However, a one-woman-with-two-personas situation is one that he actually likes, for the variety he experiences with her. It's just that he's not always sure how best to handle / relate to her. Is this not just a new way to express a common complaint of sorts that men have made for a loooong time?
