Lessons In Love

Album: Fire & Ice (2011)
Charted: 94

Songfacts®:

  • 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.
