If you aren't aware of this mega hit, then you probably don't own a radio. Don’t You Want Me is one of those songs taken completely out of context. People focus on the plaintive chorus, thinking it’s a love song, insterad this song is about a guy who meets a cocktail waitress and turns her into a star before their love goes bad. It was inspired by an article in a woman's magazine. As lead singer Phil Oakey says, this is not a love song but about power politics between two people.
The original single's B-side is Seconds an eerie song about the assassination of John F Kennedy. The B-side of this release is an extended dance mix of Don’t You Want Me is also featured on this release.
