  • Lyrics
  • This Danja-produced track has Brown drawing on mathematics metaphors to attract the interest of a girl:

    Substitution, add me in
    Multiply my love
    Is that too much?
    Substitution
    What's the problem, girl?
    Add me in
  • The mathematics-as-a-metaphor-for-love lyrical trick is not a new one, It was famously utilised by Sam Cooke in his 1960 hit "Wonderful World."

    Don't know much trigonometry.
    Don't know much about algebra,
    Don't know what a slide rule is for.
    But I do know that one and one is two,
    And if this one could be with you,
    What a wonderful world this would be
  • The song was produced by Nate "Danja" Hills, who previously collaborated with Brown on "Till I Die" from his Fortune album. Breezy described the tune to MTV News as being "old-school with a new-age feel."

Dexys (Kevin Rowland and Jim Paterson)Songwriter Interviews

"Come On Eileen" was a colossal '80s hit, but the band - far more appreciated in their native UK than stateside - released just three albums before their split. Now, Dexys is back.

Timothy B. SchmitSongwriter Interviews

The longtime Eagle talks about soaring back to his solo career, and what he learned about songwriting in the group.

Gavin Rossdale of BushSongwriter Interviews

On the "schizoid element" of his lyrics, and a famous line from "Everything Zen."

Rick SpringfieldSongwriter Interviews

Rick has a surprising dark side, a strong feminine side and, in a certain TV show, a naked backside. But he still hasn't found Jessie's Girl.

Joe Elliott of Def LeppardSongwriter Interviews

The Def Leppard frontman talks about their "lamentable" hit he never thought of as a single, and why he's juiced by his Mott The Hoople cover band.

Jack Blades of Night Ranger and Damn YankeesSongwriter Interviews

Revisit the awesome glory of Night Ranger and Damn Yankees: cheesily-acted videos, catchy guitar licks, long hair, and lyrics that are just plain relatable.
