Just like a rollin' stone
I'm outside lookin' in
But if your chance came would you take it
Where on earth do I begin
I'm Mandy fly me

I've often heard her jingle
It's never struck a chord
With a smile as bright as sunshine
She called me through the poster
And welcomed me aboard
She led me she fed me
She read me like a book
But I'm hiding in the small print
Won't you take another look
And take me away
Try me Mandy fly me away

The world was spinning like a ball
And then it wasn't there at all
And as my heart began to fall

I saw her walking on the water
As the sharks were comin' for me
I felt Mandy pull me up give me the kiss of life
Just like the girl in Dr. No No No No

Ah when they pulled me from the wreckage
And her body couldn't be found
Was it in my mind it seems
I had a crazy dream
I told them so but they said no no no no

I found me on a street
And starin' at a wall
If it hadn't have been for Mandy
Her promise up above me
Well I wouldn't be here at all
So if you're travellin' in the sky
Don't be surprised if someone said Hi
I'm Mandy fly me

    The guy is looking up at a National Airlines poster at the stewardess on there, and has a fantasy about her saving him. However when he snaps out of it, he's back on the street in America - and he would never have been there if it hadn't of been for the allure of the poster getting him to fly from the UK (presumably - it is 10cc after all) in the first place.

    This song is like Part 2 of Clockwork Creep. The man takes the flight because he is attracted to the Mandy on the poster. The plane blows up, he is thrown in the water, and the stewardess saves him--only she was dead! 10cc should never be taken too seriously--this a jokey song.

    I think this song has two meanings... 1. The guy was litterally drowning, and a spirit saved him. 2. The guy was really depressed from a break up to the point of suicide "And as my heart began to fall"... "Well I wouldn't be here at all" and Mandy loved him until he could love himself again... and then she left to go on to another male victim of love.

    This is a song of pure imagination. He sees the girl in the poster and goes on an impossible adventure with her before he returns to reality... but then he concludes, "If it hadn't have been for Mandy... I wouldn't be here at all." It completely blurs the lines between fantasy and reality.

    My Interpretation
    Really...this song "I'm Mandy. fly me.." is about being on a acid trip...Mandy is the trip you lick and enjoy.

    I immediately thought of the drug, ''Mandies'' as well. Also Bill Wyman of the Stones had an affair with 13 year old Mandy Rice-Davis, hence the line, ''Just like a Rolling Stone, I'm outside looking in, but if your chance came would you take it?'' meaning, would you do the same as Bill in that situation? I think the singer is high on ''Mandies'' and fantasising about going with a (much) younger woman and being 'rescued' by her.

    I remember this song from when I was a teenager. I always thought it was about someone driving along, seeing the sexy poster, getting distracted and ending up crashing (maybe half-conscious in his crashed car seeing the poster again and thinking, "If it hadn't have been for Mandy, I wouldn't be here at all"). Ah well, it could have been.

    I think this song is about a man who sees an ad for an Airline. There is a lady (flight attendant) on there called Mandy. The man fantasises about him going on a flight with her but the plane crashes. Mandy saves him.

Just listening for the 784,654th time....and it's just perfect in every way. Just incredible. The only reason it was remade was to scoop up a boatload of money from a more modern and accepting audience. But it is a completely different song than the other one that sounds slapped together in a few takes without a thought for the meaning. This song captivates me still, after 50+ years. Takes me to the deep South and the poverty of some who lived thru truly hard times. And the powerful spirit of a poor young girl being abandoned to her future with only a red dress and her wits to keep her alive. She not only stayed alive, she turned her hard beginnings around, became self sufficient, successful and someone with respect for herself. She didn't let the naysayers and judgers stop her. She's the one sitting in the drivers seat at the end. So, not a song about a poor girl, but a song of hope and how you can rise up no matter how far down you started. There is a huge difference between a singer who simply belts out a song that is on a page in front of them, and someone who can convey an entire experience with their voice. Telling not just a story with words, but taking you inside it and making you feel like you are there, with their interpretation.

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.
