About the song Edit
The song was covered by The Bangles as a single which charted at number 29 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and at number 31 on the UK Singles Chart. The Bangles's version is also known for having two separate music videos, one that was commonly shown in North America and the other that was commonly shown in Europe. The American version was directed by Tamar Hoffs the mother of The Bangles guitarist/vocalist Susanna Hoffs.
Duran Duran performed the song with Susanna Hoffs during The Strange Behaviour Tour at the San Diego Sports Arena, San Diego, California, USA on 27 July 1987. The recording was filmed for the Working For The Skin Trade concert video, but not used.
If she knew what she wants (He'd be giving it to her) If she knew what she needs (He could give her that too) If she knew what she wants (But he can't see through her) If she knew what she wants He'd be giving it to her Giving it to her But she wants everything (He can pretend to give her everything) Or there's nothing she wants (She don't want to sort it out) He's crazy for this girl (But she don't know what she's looking for) If she knew what she wants He'd be giving it to her Giving it to her I'd say her values are corrupted But she's open to change Then one day she's satisfied And the next I'll find her crying And it's nothing she can explain Some have a style That they work hard to refine So they walk a crooked line But she won't understand Why anyone would have to try To walk a line when they could fly No sense thinking I could rehabilitate her When she's fine, fine, fine She's got so many ideas traveling around in her head She doesn't need nothing from mine
