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

I'm not proud, I was wrong
and the truth is hard to take
I felt sure we had enough
but our love went overboard
lifeboat lies lost at sea
I've been trying to reach your shore
waves of doubt keep drowning me
All the dreams that we were building
we never fulfilled them
could be better, should be better
for lessons in love

For restless eyes egos burn
and the mold is hard to break
now we've waded in too deep
and love is overboard
heavy hearts token words
all the hopes I ever had
fade like footprints in the sand

All the homes that we were building
we never lived in
could be better, should be better
lessons in love
if we lose the time before us
the future will ignore us
we should use it, we could use it, yeah
Lessons in love

Lost without love...

Lessons in love
When will you ever learn

Lessons in love
When there's nowhere left to turn

Lessons in love
Don't let your spirit burn

Lessons in love
I'll wait 'till you return

All the dreams that we were building
we never lived them
we could use it, we should use it
for lessons in love
All the homes that we were building
we never lived in
could be better, should be better
lessons in love
if we lose the time before us
the future will ignore us
we should use it, we could use it, yeah
lessons in love
