"Yes, it's ironic that this has been the ultimate slow dance for teenagers in love for years. The singer is really super cynical, and the lyrics show a superiority complex that doesn't know it's equal in pop music. He just has a hard on and looks down on the girl he sings about. I think that the men from 10CC where deeply on coke at the time, because this is real cocaine arrogance. Plus the arrogance from a pop-star that has hundreds of girls down at his feet and can say: 'Alright, you can give me a blowjob, but don't you dare think I care about you.' In my song it's different: 'You're not in love? Well, I'm not in love either, sucker!'"
Never better than the original - which is one of the best songs ever -, but it's still the best song on "Strange Little Girls". I love how she took the original idea (a man singing "I'm not in love" when he's actually in love) and sang like she's really NOT in love. When she sings, "You'll wait a long time for me", it's so cold it gives me shivers. Brilliant.
