You turn me on, you lift me up
And like the sweetest cup I'd share with you
You lift me up, don't you ever stop, I'm here with you
Now it's all or nothing

Ok, recipe for enjoying Simple Minds, group of friends, mixed company preferable as always, bottle of something potent, a nice sound system, stir thoroughly, and sing your a** off to each other, enjoy

Takes me back to 1985 when I just learned that I got an "F" on my eighth-grade term paper. The vice-princip a l was so nice; he could see how bummed I was -- "Go on home and come back tomorrow. Take a week to revise the Paper and I'll talk to your english comp. teacher." This tune was on when I got home and started the revision. So the song reminds me of a dude who cared.
