Poll: Interpreting Air Supply

So, when you hear the song “Making Love (Out Of Nothing At All)” by Air Supply, how do you interpret the lyrics? Because Kaphine and I had very different interpretations.

Specifically, the refrain:

But I don’t know how to leave you,
And I’ll never let you fall;
And I dont know how you do it,
Making love out of nothing at all
.”

Do you hear this as positive or negative? Somewhere in between? Does it say ‘you make love out of nothing because there’s nothing here in our relationship’ or does it say ‘wow – you can make something with very little to work with’? Or something else entirely?

  1. you crack my shit up. that said, I will be following comments on this post… 😉

  2. Isn’t this the essence of a good pop song, especially a sappy love song, that you can assign the meaning you need, you want, when you hear the song? I have a sentimental attachment to Air Supply — the first concert I ever went to was one of their shows at Merriweather Post Pavillion — but I have never spent a moment thinking about this song.

    All Out of Love, on the other hand, I’m pretty sure is about Princess Leia and Han Solo.

  3. I think that’s a pretty good definition of the essence of a good pop song, actually.

    Me, I am indifferent to Air Supply but ridiculously sentimentally attached to “Can’t Fight This Feeling” by REO Speedwagon because it was my first slow dance…
