In the lead up to Britney's very public breakdown she was still trying to be relevant on the music scene. This song did not help her. There was outcry from American parents and the song was not allowed to be played unedited. "If you seek Amy" is hardly a clever way to spell out F. U. C. K. even children could see through it. It didn't help that the writers didn't even make the lyrics grammatically correct!

This song is a brilliantly simple reflection on the ordinary moments of love and new relationships. The melody is chilled and reflects the idea of lazing around with your love in a haze of new romance where even the banal is endearing and when you are not with them you spend all your time thinking about when you were with them or when you will be with them again
They sampled "Stand By Me" for the intro and chorus of this song and although they don't use the lyrics from that song they are entirely appropriate. Falling in love, and getting so hung up on someone that they "mush up" your mind is something we can all relate to - even if we don't all feel literally suicidal we've all been there. Great song
There was so much press surrounding Marilyn Monroe's death and controversy as some say it was a murder not suicide. Either way Elton John is referring to her apparent deep sadness where she was so lonely even though she was surrounded by people. These people didn't really know her and they built her up but were not there to help her during the low times. The fact that she was a superstar she was like public property with no privacy even of her own body. In death most of the headlines made reference to the fact that she was found naked. She was not allowed the dignity of death even.
