Lovestruck
Madness Lyrics


Staggering home, the headlights throw a shadow up and upon
Friends and loved ones that have done no wrong
But no longer mean anything to me
Oh am I mumbling on, into a crystal glass that echoes a song?
The enticement invites you along a path of exterior color

But come the morning, shivering and contorting
To border on the brink for just another sink, oh take me down
For one more round
Oh, involve me in libation, stick a rock in my foundation,
I pick all my relations, put me on probation, oh I'll take you down
For one last round

Oh, Lovestruck, I've fallen for a lamppost
Giving her my utmost, spilling out my deepest feelings
Lovestruck, I've fallen for a lamppost
Giving her my utmost, spilling out my deepest feelings
Now all I want to do is snuggle up to you
A night-cap in the early morning dew

Look, what have I become? Dispensing myself so far and from
But gazing out I waved the night boat on
For now it's heaven in deepest Tottenham

Oh, what have I done to deserve this fate? It's all going wrong
Even the cab fare has been and gone
And now I'm lagging in deepest Tottenham

But come the morning, shivering and contorting
To border on the brink for just another sink, oh take me down
For one more round

Yeah, Lovestruck, I've fallen for a lamppost
Giving her my utmost, spilling out my deepest feelings
Lovestruck, I've fallen for a lamppost,
Giving her my utmost, spilling out my deepest feelings

Fight me, fight me, strike me down with lightning
I've given in to fighting
Now all I want to do is get up close to you
A night-cap in the early morning dew

Oh, Lovestruck, I've fallen for a lamppost
Giving her my utmost, spilling out my deepest feelings
Lovestruck, I've fallen for a lamppost
Giving her my utmost, spilling out my deepest feelings

Lovestruck, I've fallen for a lamppost
I'm giving it my utmost, I've fallen for a lamppost
With my deepest feelings

Now all I want to do is snuggle up to you
A night-cap in the early morning dew

They're not underrated as they're seen as one of the biggest bands produced in Britain's history.. They're in the top 40 artists in Britain for album and single sales ahead of .Wham, Phil Collins, The Police, Diana Ross, Katy Perry, Adam Ant, The Jam, Pet Shop Boys, Duran Duran, Frank Sinatra and Prince These bands were huge in their time and Madness only lasted for about 6 years after they got recognition and sales in 1979 having started the band in 76.. . I'll leave a link below for you to see the top 40 best selling British artists of all time.

They made well over 6 million in the 80's alone from sales which would be about 24 million today with inflation. They filled the 80's with some of the best songs you'll ever hear but often they'd get pipped to no.1 by some silly song which still happens today.. But they had over 20 top 20 singles with many of them in the top ten.. Most of those artist who got to no. 1 were flash in the pans and couldn't hold a candle to Madness...

Madness were clearly one of the best bands of the 80's if not the best and they were just as popular with their comeback in the 90's.. In two days they played to 150,000 people for their reunion.. They could play at any of the major festivals today and still move the whole crowd and not many bands can claim this.. They were up their with UB40 who were also huge for quite a while having made a similar amount of money through sales. UB40 lasted far longer though which is why they made slighter more in record sales as if Madness stay around for longer they'd have made a lot more money..

The only down note is that they had so many members so they had to split the money 7 ways.. But some of the madness songs were so popular that these songs are still making them lots of money today.. Song's like Baggy Trousers, Our House, Embarrassment and many more are worth their weight in gold. They're still getting royalties from those songs along with money from adverts today.. Everytime their songs are played on the radio/films/media Madness get paid for it so money's always flowing into their bank account but they won't admit that to the public..

They were thought of so highly that they played on the roof off Buckingham Palace for the Queen... They're the only band in Britain who were personally approached to do this by the Royal family..
Madness were so successful that they all could afford to retire early and that's what they did.
They then cashed in with a reunion tour and a fairly decent album as they also as individuals went off making more money doing other things in the media.. Madness are seen as an institution because of their success so they could never be seen as underrated... Their music was not always simple, many songs had very complicated parts and their songwriting was always well up with the best of the artists around at the time.
Madness were a roaring success but did fade out at the end because the founder of the band left with a year or two to spare.. Still for the amount of time they were around they produced an amazing amount of hits... And for me they're way better than Oasis or Blur or Radiohead for that matter.. They could of been as big as the Beatles if they broke America but they weren't willing to put the work in which is what would have been needed to achieve this.

Staggering 🥴 home 🏡 the headlights throw a shadow up and upon

Staggering home
The headlights throw a shadow up and upon
Friends and loved ones that have done no wrong
But no longer mean anything to me
Mumbling on into a crystal glass that echoes a song
The enticement invites you along
A path of exterior colour

But came the morning, shivering and contorting
To border on the brink, for just another sink
Oh, take me down, for one more round

Oh, involve me in libation
Stick a rock in my foundation, soak me in stagnation
Tackle my translation(and) I’ll take you down
For one last round

Loves truck, I’ve fallen for a lamppost, given her my upmost
Spelling out my deepest feelings
Now all I want to do, is snuggle up to you
A night cap in the early morning dew

Look! What have I become?
Distancing myself so far and front
But gazing up I wave the night boat on
For now its heaven in deepest Tottenham

What have I done to deserve this fate?
It’s all gone wrong
Even my cab fares been and gone
Now I’m lagging in deepest Tottenham

As popular and well known as these guys are, they are still underrated. I think some see them as light and fluffy because that's their shtick, but underneath the madcap exterior they are phenomenally talented song writers and musicians.

@Dáithí Ó Pléimeann everyone in the world could like em, and I'd still think that they're underappreciated.

Freshcookies 21 couldn't agree more. Beautiful songwriters. Songs that make you want to dance if you're in the mood or just listen and appreciate if you're in the mood. Songs that work on every level. Craftsmanship.

Firey Flower

Freshcookies 21 then they havent got the nouse to see the subtext quite ofton thats in their songs eg our house may be a fun song, but its also about mothers love and family

Harry Preece
