I said upside down
You're turning me
You're giving love instinctively
Around and round you're turning me

Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round
Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round

Instinctively you give to me
The love that I need
I cherish the moments with you
Respectfully I say to thee
I'm aware that you're cheating
When no one makes me feel like you do

Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round
Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round

I know you got charm and appeal
You always play the field
I'm crazy to think you are mine
As long as the sun continues to shine
There's a place in my heart for you
That's the bottomline

Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round
Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round

Instinctively you give to me
The love that I need
I cherish the moments with you
Respectfully I say to thee
I'm aware that you're cheating
But no one makes me feel like you do

Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round
Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round

Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round
Upside down
Boy, you turn me
Inside out
And round and round

Upside down you're turning me
You're giving love instinctively
Around and round you're turning me
I say to thee respectfully

Upside down you're turning me
You're giving love instinctively
Around and round you're turning me
I say to thee respectfully

I said a upside down you're turning me
You're giving love instinctively
Around and round you're turning me

I say to thee respectfully
Upside down you're turning me
You're giving love instinctively
Around and round you're turning me
I say to thee respectfully

Upside down you're turning me

    This is a song written and produced by two men who have the female singer sing 'respectfully' to a man who deserves no respect from her. She has no respect for herself. But it's catchy and you can dance to it.

    Ever since I heard this ages 5 and below, it'll never lose its appeal. The singer's saying she's on to her lover's faults but that no one else will do for her because, as the lyrics go, no one else makes her feel the same as this man does.

    This song endulges men in the audience and Diana on the stage.

    actually, Diana clearly says "boy you turn me" not "man you turn me". Because men should know better?

    Definitely not a Bee Gee song written for Diana.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.
