Sexed Up by Robbie Williams Appreciation Thread

I have discovered this song and fallen in love with it. I think it's more of an infatuation but man, it's great.

What does that "we're not sexed up" line mean?

I feel like this song needs more appreciating.

I haven't heard this song. But right now my current Robbie Williams obsession is "She's Madonna." It's awesome!

I need the perspective of Robbie fans - is "Rudebox" worth getting? I kept hearing how bizarre and awful it was. But if there's anything else on it as brilliant as "She's Madonna," I'll have to find a copy.

It's a very underappreciated song that I didn't even know existed. It sound very Beatlesque to me for some reason.

Here's a link to the song's video:

Sexed up is one of my fave RW songs
It's so bitter.... Escapology imo is his best album- every song on it is awesome, Robbie's golden years for sure (i definately recommend it)

As for BrownEyedBoys question about what "we're not sexed up" means. The song is a massive break-up rant... i'd say it's when a guy gets dumped, his natural reaction is to be defensive and act as though he doesn't care, moving on to find what he deems as affection, which in this case is sex-
eg
"Screw you I didn't like your taste
Anway, I chose you
Let's all gone to wasted Saturday
I'll go out and find another you"

As for Rudebox, i don't know, i hated Intensive Care and haven't yet bought Rudebox incase i hate it too... but the singles i've heard seem ok...



Loose lips on ships
I'm getting to grips
With what you said
Know it's not in my head
I can't awake and forget day after day
Why don't we talk about it
Why do you always doubt
That there can be a better way
It doesn't make me want to stay

Why don't we break up
There's nothing left to say
I got my eye shut praying they won't stray
And when I sexed up
That's what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away

You said we're fatally flopped
When I'm easily bored
Is that okay?
Strike me off your list
Made this the last kiss
I'll walk away

Why don't we talk about it
I'm only here Don't shout it
Given time we'll forget
Let's pretend we never meet

Chorus

Screw you I didn't like your taste
Anway, I chose you
Let's all gone to wasted Saturday
I'll go out and find another you

Why don't we
Why don't we break up
There's nothing left to say
I got my eye shirt praying they won't stray
Oh! When I sexed up
That's what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away

sexed up is a great song. i'm also a big fan of Angel. although, to be honest, i can't listen to him singing Kids anymore. Bono beat him down with that song.

*post edited for utter foolishness*

Oh no, I'm well aware of Bono singing Kids with Kylie (and it's so awesome ). Is that the song you were thinking of, unico?

Or does he throw a snippet of Rock DJ in their version of Kids?
