She's simply awesome
Ooh

She dashed by me in painted on jeans
And all heads turned 'cause she was the cream
In the blink of an eye I knew her number and her name, yeah
She said I was the tiger she wanted to tame

Caribbean queen
Now we're sharing the same dream
And our hearts they beat as one
No more love on the run

I lose my cool when she steps in the room, mmm
And I get so excited just from her perfume, mmm
Electric eyes that you can't ignore
And passion burns you like never before, mmm, mmm, mmm

I was in search of a good time
Just running my game, yeah
Love was the furthest
Furthest from my mind, yeah

Caribbean queen (can you give me love?)
Now we're sharing the same dream (don't wanna stop)
And our hearts they beat as one (ooh)
No more love on the run
I love ya, I need ya

Caribbean queen (can you give me love?)
Now we're sharing the same dream (don't wanna stop)
And our hearts they beat as one (ooh, yeah)
No more love on the run
Ah, mmm, mmm, mmm, yeah

Caribbean queen (can you give me love?)
Now we're sharing the same dream (ooh, don't stop)
And our hearts they beat as one (oh, lady, my baby)
No more love on the run
(Mmm, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Caribbean queen (can you give me love?)
Now we're sharing the same dream (ooh, don't stop)
And our hearts they beat as one (oh, lady, my baby)
No more love on the run
(Mmm, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, hey
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, yeah, ohh
She's the cream
My Caribbean queen, yeah, yeah

I said, she dashed by me in painted jeans

    A great song this where the lyrics are pretty self explanatory.

    I did read somewhere, wiki maybe, that Billy Ocean tried African Queen and European Queen before settling on the song we all know and love.

    Love this song, a real guilty pleasure especially when i was into The Smiths, Stump, Goth and all sorts of alternative stuff when this was out in the 80's.

    My Interpretation

    A one night stand turned into "love". Mutt Lange produced it.

    Memory

    Actually she bent over a pool table in Key West in her painted-on white jeans and said, "I'm lookin' for a good shot."

    I paused for a sec and said, "that looks like a good shot."

    She looked up fast to see who picked up her gauntlet.

    I saw her bright blue eyes framed by platinum hair.

    "Something told me I was into something good."

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
