Turbo Lover Lyrics

You won't hear me, But you'll feel me
Without warning, somethings dawning, listen.
Then within your senses,
You'll know you're defenseless
How your heart beats, when you run for cover
Your cant retreat I spy like no other.

Then we race...

    I do remember when they did the behind the music special on vh1. They did say that the song had obvious gay conotations like united was actually the first lbgtq anthem. Who cares it is still one of the most sexy metal tunes i've ever heard.

    The song is obviously about having bad gas after eating too much chili.

    The way I see it is that this song can be interpreted in many ways but the way I see it is about bikers may it be gay or straght having sex. Music is how you Interpret it and and to be frank, I think the song is about sex. Who knows, it can be about drugs or biking or sex but who knows?

    its simple, its a song about motorcycles

    "Then we race together. We can ride forever
    Wrapped in horsepower, driving into fury
    Changing gear I pull you tighter to me"

    I interpret this particular Judas Priest song a form of dangerous or adrenaline based addiction speaking to it's victim. It could also be a metaphor for a risque, rough or spontaneous sexual relationship. Either way, it is a song that has stuck in my head and reemerges now and then even all these years later.

    it may have been inspired by gay relations, but it's written in a way that is universal to all sexual orientations. There are plenty of gays that take britney spears' obviously hetrosexual songs and apply them to their own life and make them their anthem, even though the song, for all we know, was inspired by hetrosexual relations. This song is the same way. Many straight people have experienced the relations described in turbo lover and this song can be just as relevent to there love life as it is for anyone else of a different sexual orientation. There are judas priest songs like "raw deal" that are specific to the gays, but this is not one of them. So to label this as a song only about "gay relations" isn't fair; it's about a passionate relationship that people of all orientations have experienced. So there for it's not "gay"

    I am a long time fan of Judas Priest. I have seen them in concert numerous times.This song,as with many others by Priest,is a celebration of gay relations of the rough type. I hope I'm not the only one that was blind as a kid, listening to Judas Priest, banging my head, and singing songs like "United" from British Steel, not realizing they were gay fight songs! Doesn't matter though, they are still Judas Priest! Rob Halford could sing about puppies and flowers and still rock.

    Well ... Its got the word 'but' in the first line but there's only one 'T'?!
    "You won't hear me, but you'll feel me"
    This LP still ranks for me as one of their best, I really like the vid to this tune. Kind of lost boys in the desert, cheesy as hell but 'of it's time' for sure. Dokken, Crue, etc. This site is cool. Just stumbled on it this evening, will start thinking laterally and get bet back soon.

    This song, to me, is about Rob Halford butt fucking his gay lover. You can tell in the very first verse.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
