So we went back to Eddy's flat and the two of them played around with guitars for a couple of hours. It was fun listening to them while I read the paper and howled along. If they start a band, I am not allowed to sing as Richard does not want to have the proverbial "girlfriend who sings". Hmmm. Whilst Eddy's new place is conveniently located on the route of the 285 bus which runs all night back to Kingston, we managed to leave just in time to miss a bus by 2 minutes. So I stood at the bus stop singing "Ziggy Stardust" for 20 minutes because I couldn't get it out of my head!
I was thinking though, one of the songs they played was "Every Breath You Take". I was reading the lyrics, and it struck me just how creepy they are. I mean:
Every breath you take / Every move you make / Every bond you break / Every step you take I'll be watching you.
Every single day / Every word you say / Every game you play / Every night you stay I'll be watching you.
Is it me, or is this a song about stalking? Even worse is the line Oh baby can't you see / You belong to me?
So I present you a poll so that I can find out whether it's just me that's creeped out:
Is "Every Breath You Take" just a love song, or is it about stalking?
Do you like the song "Every Breath You Take"?
