Well I had a girl, she was the best around
And I was in love, now I'm just hangin' out
And I'm burning in the sun
Losing my mind
Hearts break in the summer time
I'm burning in the sun
And Losing my mind
I thought I was a man; I was ready to die for her
It wasn't part of the plan, what was I suppose to do
Run, run, run
I'm burning in the sun
Losing my mind
Hearts break in the summer time
I'm burning in the sun
And losing my mind
I had a girl, she was the best around
Ya, Ya
It was it part of the plan, was I suppose to do
Run, run, run
I'm burning in the sun
I'm losing my mind
Hearts break in the summer time
Ya
I'm burning in the sun
Losing my mind

    Basically its just about a guy who breaks up with a girl in the summertime. Loosing my mind -> being upset about the unexpected break up.

    A lot of people confuse this band with Coldplay because the singer of Blue MERle supposedly sounds like Chris Martin. And he somewhat does. This is the only song I've heard by the band, and I enjoy it. There is some nice violin work in the song, and the singer does a pretty good job of displaying the emotions he's trying to depict.

    I love this song! Just wondering why the few comments.

    Anyway, my interpretation of this song is that the guy was in love with this girl and he said he'd do anything for her - or so he thought. When the time came, well - "It wasn't part of the plan." Well, he wasn't ready for whatever it is - the next step? Commitment? And so ends the relationship.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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/
