Funkband die eind jaren 70 wordt opgericht. Bekendste leden van de groep zijn zanger en bassist Mark King en toetsenist Mike Lindup. Level 42 scoort in de jaren 80 de ene hit na de andere. Lessons In Love wordt in 1986 hun grootste hit en behaald de tweede plaats in de Top 40. In 1989 overlijdt gitarist Alan Murphy aan de gevolgen van aids. In 1994 scoort de band hun laatste hit met de single Forever Now die van het gelijknamige album komt. Sindsdien heeft Level 42 geen hits meer gescoord maar de band neemt nog steeds albums op en Mark en Co. treden nog steeds veel op. In 2016 stonden ze op het North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam en brachten ze een EP getiteld Sirens uit.

Songtekst

Don't play this game with me
you know you came to be my world
when times were bad enough
seems I was good enough
you run out my door
you come back, and beg for more and more
just like the times before
you'll always be

Guaranteed a place inside my heart
I would never forget a single thing
always be a martyr to your heart
then you'll never regret a single thing

You think I just don't care (just don't care)
the fact is, I could not bear (could not bear)
to lose this kind of loving touch (I love your touch)
would you be bothered much?
you had so much planned (so much planned)
so take time to understand (understand)
my reasons for pulling you back to me (back to me)
you'll always be

Guaranteed a place inside my heart
I would never forget a single thing
always be a martyr to your heart
then you'll never regret a single thing

You hide so many years
(hide away)
you cried so many tears
(cried away your tears)
you think I just don't realise
(now I realise)
one thing I've come to know
(if you stay)
this pain will surely go
(all the way with me)
so soon before your very eyes

Guaranteed a place inside my heart
I would never forget a single thing
always be a martyr to your heart
then you'll never regret a single thing

Guaranteed a place inside my heart
I would never forget a single thing
always be a martyr to your heart
then you'll never regret a single thing

Guaranteed . . .
