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.
"Pink Cadillac" was a B-side for Bruce Springsteen in 1984, but after Aretha Franklin sang about pink Cadillacs on "Freeway Of Love" the following year, Natalie Cole covered the song and had a hit with it in 1988.
