(Going to the top)
(Oh, oh oh)
(Oh, oh oh)
(Oh, oh ah)
Here we stand in the shadow of the maste rplan
Makin touble wherever we can, (stir it up, stir it up, stir it up)
Cant you see this boy is going cheap - knockdown to a basement deal
But I really won't stop til I get to the top
Take it from me, Im waiting here on my knees
And I love the way you tease me ooh such a wonderful person
Dont play rough - its easy when you know your stuff
Say please and sure enough, so kind,
I'm makin' love to the ultimate mind
Come on, take a look, put it to me, baby,
You could feel a love come tumbling down.
I just want to wrap myself in you baby,
We could tell the world were fooling around.

Ultimately, I'd say she's toying with me
Its a case of wait and see,
But right now I'm gonna keep my pants on
A to Z, shes doin it to my head
We dont need to go to bed, you'll find,
To make love to the ultimate mind.
(Oh-oh, oh oh oh) (repeat)
Put it to me, baby (you could feel a love, love..)
Wanna wrap myself in you, baby (well tell the world, world..)
Talk me round, lets do it right here and now
I don't want you cooling down,
Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, turn it up
We could fit, realitys two-way split, personality
Lifes a bitch, but I'm fine,
Making love to the ultimate mind
Heavens bent, were completely innocent
We all got to pay the rent, and in time we learn to compromise
Talkin' tall, but I feel invisible
Can you see me after all, that I said, theres only one thing for it...

Take a look, put it to me, baby
You could feel a love come tumbling down
I just want to wrap myself in you baby
We can tell the world were fooling around
Come on, take a look, put it to me, baby (Oh-ah, oh oh oh)
You could be a love come tumbling down (Oh-ah, oh oh oh)
I just want to wrap myself in you baby (Oh-ah, oh oh oh)
We could tell the world were fooling around (Oh-ah, oh oh oh)
Come on, take a look, put it to me, baby (Oh-ah, oh oh oh)
You could feel a love come tumbling down (Oh-ah, oh oh oh)
I just want to wrap myself in you baby (Oh-ah, oh oh oh)
We could tell the world were fooling around (Oh-ah, oh oh oh)
Come on, take a look (put it to me baby)
(Oh-ah, oh oh oh)
(Oh-ah, oh oh oh)
(Oh-ah, oh oh oh)
I'm making love to the ultimate mind, mind...
Ultimate mind, mind...
Ultimate mind, mind, mind, mind ...
Ooooohhh ooooaahh
Ahhhaahh oohhoooo

    I think this song is about Duran Duran's relationship with the media and the public. What's funny is that with this album, they finally made that connection again.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.
Album art
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.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
