After listening to Spandau Ballet’s True and Earth Wind and Fire’s Reasons many, many times, I find that I cannot make heads or tails of what these songs are trying to say.
Here is my attempt to take these songs apart and glean the True and deep Reasons.
After trying sanity and being dissapointed by it, the singer discovers he likes to fight and listen to Soul II Soul while writing lyrics. This distracts him.
So he (the singer) turns to Marvin Gaye and drugs-- yet he still hears the club music.
You (the listener) need to bathe and finish doing your homework because time is short.
My conclusion: People who listen to this song need to take a bath, listen to some R&B and do drugs.
I want to have sex with you.
I’m afraid I’ll be horny forever.
After we have sex, let’s go down to 5th Ave and watch the St. Paddy’s day parade.
Do you wake up with morning wood?
Can’t we just have sex?
My conclusion: I want to have sex with you, then I want you to go away after we watch the parade.
I dunno. These songs seemed so much deeper before.
