I don't mind if you're keeping someone else behind
I don't care 'cause you've got something I can share

Hey, take a chance, even if it's only
Only while we're dancing in the
Light of your second sight
because When you understand me
You might feel good around me now

I don't want your love to bring me down
I don't want your love, so turn it around

I won't turn you out if you've got someone else
Someone else you care about
Because you must realize
My obsessive fascination is in your imagination

I don't want your love to bring me down (I don't want your love, I don't want your love)
I don't want your love, so turn it around (I don't want your love, I don't want your love)

Your rhythm is the power to move me
It's something you control completely
I don't want your love
I don't want your love (I don't want your love)

I like noise 'cause I like waking up the house
I cannot sit down, I can't shut my mouth
But when you understand me
You might feel good around me now

Your rhythm is the power to move me
It's something you control completely
I don't want your love
I don't want your love (I don't want your love)

I don't want your love to bring me down (I don't want your love, I don't want your love)
I don't want your love, so turn it around (I don't want your love, I don't want your love)

I don't want your love (I don't want your love), I don't want your love (I don't want your love)

    I heard that if you listen to the lyrics backward there's a cryptic message.

    Love this one. I've been through this one personally. Here, Simon's schooling a delusional stalker who tried to do the flip on him (pretend and say to others he is actually the one stalking her). This became a common game in the 90's. Trust Duran Duran to blast it into the open. I've actually used their lyrics against one guy. I literally told him, "You must realize: my obsessive fascination is in your imagination."

    And it was.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
