“Kiss On My List” by Hall and Oates

When they want to know
What the reason is
I only smile when I lie
Then I tell them why

At first, I had planned to reprove Mr Hall for his carelessness – it’s bad enough that to have such an obvious tell, but broadcasting it is really, really dumb…

…but then I realised that there was more going on here. He’s not broadcasting at all – he’s telling this only to his inamorata. Sharing your tells is an unconventional seduction technique, but it does at least demonstrate a strong level of trust.
