"Hedonism" as written by and Len Arran Deborah Ann Dyer....
I hope you're feeling happy now
I see you feel no pain at all, it seems
I wonder what you're doin' now
I wonder if you think of me at all
Do you still play the same moves now?
Or are those special moods for someone else?
I hope you're feeling happy now

Just because you feel good
Doesn't make you right, oh no
Just because you feel good
Still want you here tonight

Does laughter still discover you?
I see through all the smiles that look so right
Do you still have the same friends now
To smoke away your problems and your life?
Oh how do you remember me?
The one that made you laugh until you cried
I hope you're feeling happy now

Just because you feel good
Doesn't make you right, oh no
Just because you feel good
Still want you here tonight, want you

Oh, no
Just because you feel good
Doesn't make you right, oh no
Just because you feel good
Still want you here tonight, want you

Just because you feel good
Doesn't make you right, oh no
Just because you feel good
Still want you here tonight, want you

I wonder what you're doing now
I hope you're feeling happy now
I wonder what you're doing now
I hope you're feeling happy now

    General Commenti don't think its as simple as hoping that an ex is happy...i think that the 'hope you're feeling happy now' is supposed to be sarcastic.

    General Commentit's an angry song to sing to a former boyf/girlf who's hurt you when he/she should have thanked you for helping you when he/she felt so low...

    General CommentI think it´s more sad than angry song - it´s about broken relationship, in which she was more emocionaly involved and now she´s feeling sad and embarassed for being the one, who loved more and that she is still not able to get over it ( I see you feel no pain at all it seems I wonder what you're doin' now I wonder if you think of me at all )
    And the fact she still feel bad and lonely, while he doesn´t seem to care and feel bad at all is wounding her even more.
    And she knows, that even after all she "still wants him here tonight" (un-cared for some dignaty or something), which is the saddest moment.

    General CommentAm I the only one picking up a message about weed? "Do you still have the same friends now, to smoke away your problems and your life?" Makes a lot of sense and relates to "just because it feels good, doesn't make you right". And the title, Hedonism points in the same direction. This is a song about a relationship that went sour because of a boyfriend who smoked too much. To me anyway :)

    General Commenti absolutly love this song... to me it means she has broken up with a loved one, and she hope he is e/she is happy now, though there is anger and hurt as she is not quite over the break up.
    i love it!!!!!

    General Commenti can see where fading and ladyboygrrl are going, but i kinda miss the hedonism part in their explanations. skin tells about her ex-boy(/girl)friend: 'i see you feel no pain at all it seems", and 'does laughter still discover you', 'just because you feel good'. does she refer to the hedonistic way of life of het ex boy(/girl)friend?

    General Commentalso: 'how do you remember me? the one that made you laugh until you cried?' does she mean: did you only date my because you could have a good laugh with me or did i mean more to you?

    to me lines like these sound as if she's critisising his superficial way of living. his life is all about having fun, but is there a place for true love and care? (hedonism = viewing the own pleasure as highest good)

    'just because you feel good, does it make you right', makes perfectly sense...
