Voyeur

Album: Voyeur (1982)
Charted: 68 29
  • This was the first single from the album, which followed the very successful Mistaken Identity. The lyrics seem to be about a glamorous woman living a sensation-filled but empty life. There has been speculation that the song was about Lady Godiva, a beautiful medieval queen whom legend says rode naked through a village square on a dare from her husband in exchange for him providing tax relief to the impoverished citizens of his kingdom. >>
