This line is followed by "Take it off now," a request that's not uncommon in pop music and one that I typically hate, but what I really, really admire in this context is that it's not about clothes. It's like Labrinth is daring you to see the deeper meaning behind the line, one that's all about love and letting down your walls. To reclaim nakedness in a mainstream song is bold and kind of provocative, and I love that. Props. There should be more of that in music, I think; the Song of Songs itself is boldly evocative in a blazingly pure, holy way that is all love and not a hint of lust.
Thoughts? Do you love this song as much as I do? And, if you know of any other tunes in the same TOB-ish vein, suggest away!
