I think several years ago I heard Heart's "all I want to do is make love to you" for the first time since childhood and was shocked to realize it was not actually a love song, but a song about a woman cheating on the one she loves with a stranger she picked up on the side of the road.

I just heard it again (clearly, I don't frequently re-listen to songs from the 80s)... And is it actually a song about a woman cheating on the one she loves with a stranger she picked up on the side of the road for the sole purpose of getting pregnant by him, because her lover can't get her pregnant?!?
Or am I crazy? Because for like 20 years I thought the "steel horse iRide" Bon jovi sings about was a roller coaster somewhere...
(Yeah. And this was before the days of ipads, iPods, and iPhones. I was the first one to do that with an i!!! Apple owes me... :-P )

This is news to me too.

I didn't know that either! I think it's a terrible song...and I usually love 80s-90s music

i have a soft spot for 80s Heart. Purely nostalgic, reminds me of childhood. But i never bothered to pay attention to their lyrics. All thier songs could be about chicken tenders or sock puppets for all i know.

Lol! I've never heard the song but I just read the lyrics and that's how I interpret them, too.

That's exactly what thet song is about! I got creeped out the first time I realised. I think the video to it makes it more clear? Not sure. But yeah, cheating to get pregnant! What REALLY got me is that she GOES BACK a few years later with the child. WHY WOULD SHE DO THAT? I don't get it.
