"Red Red Wine" as written by and Neil Diamond....
Red, red wine goes to my head,
Makes me forget that I still need her so

Red, red wine, it's up to you
All I can do I've done
Memories won't go, memories won't go

Life is fine every time,
Thoughts of you leave my head
I was wrong, now I find
Just one thing makes me forget

Red, red wine, stay close to me
Don't let me be alone
It's tearing apart my blue heart

Red red wine, you make me feel so fine,
You keep me rockin' all of the time
Red red wine, you make me feel so grand,
I feel a million dollar when you're just in my hand
Red red wine, you make me feel so sad,
Any time I see you go, it make me feel bad
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine,
Monkey back and ease up on the sweet deadline

Red red wine, you give me holy pahzing
Holy pahzing, you make me do my own thing
Red red wine, you give me not awful love
Your kind of lovin' like a blessing from above
Red red wine, I loved you right from the start,
Right from the start, and with all of my heart
Red red wine in an eighties style
Red red wine in a modern beat style

Give me a little time, let me clear out my mind
Give me a little time, let me clear out my mind
Give me red wine, the kind make me feel fine
You make me feel fine all of the time
Red red wine, you make me feel so fine
Monkey back and ease up on the sweet deadline
The line broke, the money get choked,
Bunbah, ganjapani, little rubber boat
Red red wine, I'm gonna hold on to you,
Hold on to you 'cause I know you love truth
Red red wine, I'm gonna love you till I die,
Love you till I die, and that's no lie
Red red wine, can't get your off my mind
Wherever you may be, I'll surely find,
I'll surely find. Make no fuss, just leave us

    General CommentThis song is actually about a person that became an alcoholic because he lost someone he loved. We can see this from the first verse: "Red, red wine, Go to my head, Make me forget that I, Still need her so". Still need her so obviously means he never got over the fact he lost her, and he drinks red wine to help him forget about her. We know the person is dependent on alcohol (an alcoholic) by this verse: "Red red wine you make me feel so fine, You keep me rocking all of the time". The person has become an alcoholic because when he drinks the red wine it makes him feel better, although it makes him feel bad the next morning, it makes him forget about the horrible memories of losing this loved person: "Red, red wine, It`s up to you, All I can do, I`ve done, But mem`ries won`t go, No, mem`ries won`t go". We can also see that his dependencies on alcohol have came about because he knows the red wine will never leave him like his ex-girlfriend: "Red, red wine, Stay close to me, Don`t let me be alone, It`s tearin` apart, My blue, blue heart". What an amazing song, a girl I once dated opened up my chest and ripped my heart out and stamped all over it. If I had of came across this song earlier I may not feel the way I do about it all now. What a shame that such a beautiful world can be so tragic at the same time, nature over nurture!

    My InterpretationI'd have to say this is probably one of the catchiest songs I've ever heard that's meant to inspire nothing but hopeless grief. Not only is the singer inconsolable about losing his woman, but now he sings an ode to his wine, imploring it to take him down into drunken oblivion. It very promptly does so, reducing the rest of the song to increasingly incoherent babbling. The whole situation portrayed is about as close as anyone can come to committing suicide without actually dying.

    General CommentThis song kix! I love it
    soo much. It reminds me of my
    brother's friends cousin, who happens to
    be my friend. We were sittin in the car and
    he was like "O, I love this song!"
    Then I was all like "For real?! So do I!"
    So then we jammed out to it in the
    backseat! It was so fun.
