"Love To Hate You" as written by Andy Bell and Vince Clarke....
Waoh Oh Oh Oh! Waoh Oh Oh Oh! Waoh Oh Oh Oh!
Waoh Oh Oh Oh! Waoh Oh Oh Oh! Waoh Oh Oh Oh!

I'm crazy flowing over with ideas
A thousand ways to woo a lover so sincere?
Love and hate what a beautiful combination
Sending shivers up and down my spine

For every Casanova that appears
My sense of hesitation disappears
Love and hate what a beautiful combination
Sending shivers up and down my spine

And the lovers that you sent for me
Didn't come with any satisfaction guarantee
So I return them to the sender
And the note attached will read
How I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you
I love to hate you

Oh you really still expect me to believe
Every single letter I receive
Sorry you what a shameful situation
Sending shivers up and down my spine

I like to read murder mystery
I like to know the killer isn't me
Love and hate what a beautiful combination
Sending shivers make me quiver
Feel it sliver up and down my spine

    General CommentAnother great song,this was my favourite Erasure song for a while.It has a great party vibe to it,and some well written lyrics. The video is great,man they really trashed that house.And to fit in with the fact that the Chorus album was recorded in Germany some of the video was shot in a german street set piece at night.

    General CommentThis song was originally the submitted track that Erasure wrote for the Dick Tracy soundtrack. (It was rejected, their recording of "Looking Glass Sea" was used instead.) The lyrics have more to do with the theme of the Dick Tracy movie, the love and hate aspect of Madonna's character's feelings towards Dick Tracy.

    General CommentI may be reading too much into it, but who else thinks that the verses
    "And the lovers that you sent for me
    Didn't come with any satisfaction guarantee
    So I return them to the sender
    And the note attached will read
    How I love to hate you"
    could mean someone killing their lovers or a serial killer's murders?

    General CommentI totally agree... I think it's a serial killer.
