This trance track is a collaboration with Utah-based indie rock band Neon Trees. Tyler Glenn, the Neon Trees frontman, told Spinner the lyrics were inspired by his tendency towards introspection. "When I wrote it, I recalled nights I've had at shows where all I want to do is hide in the dark of the clubs," he said. "That feeling, mixed with the theme that life is a series of missteps and grand successes, and we should all learn from every one of those moments, is the essence of 'Lessons in Love.'"
The lessons that Kaskade and Neon Trees gives us in love are entirely different to ones Level 42 taught on their 1987 hit single.
Neon Trees recorded their own New Wave-inspired take on the track for their 2012 album, Picture Show. "Kaskade's remixed version was so big and abrasive, in a wonderful way. We needed to keep that sultry dark cool to it," Glenn commented to Spinner.
"Islands in the Stream" was originally written by The Bee Gees as an R&B song. It was originally written by the brothers for Marvin Gaye, however it was recorded instead as a duet by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton with the Gibb Brothers also contributing vocals.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
