This song seems to be about the things people do in order to make themselves feel good. The song seems to focus on the darker side of pleasure like addictions and habits, but then the chorus comes in and it seems to say that you should stop thinking about what makes you feel good and try to love others to make them feel good. It's saying that love is what makes the world go around, hence the windmill reference. (thanks, Kyle - St. Louis, MO)
De La Soul rapped some of the lyrics to this song. (thanks, Blake - Hamilton, OH)
At the 2006 Grammy Awards, this won for Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals. (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France)
Jules Shear - "All Through The Night"
Shears does very little promotion, which has kept him secluded from the spotlight. What changed when Cyndi Lauper had a hit with his song? Not much, really.
Into the vaults for this talk with Bolton from the '80s when he was a focused on writing songs for other artists.
