Milla enlightened me to the fact that the Spice Girls 'twart the only ones to come up with such a... um... stunning metaphore. She wrote that "Oxygen" is

...[w]aaaaay too close to 70's stomper by Sweet "Love Is like
oxygen"...probably with same comparisons, get too much, get too high, not
enough and you're gonna die. Because love gets you high. Because it is like
oxygen.

....Here's the Sweet lyrics, it is off _Level Headed_ (and you make me feel
ancient not recognizing it, BTW...THANKSALOT!):

It goes from stompin' rock to sweet ballad and back again. Their big roller
rink hit, along with "Ballroom Blitz", "Fox on the Run" and "Little Willie
(Won't Go)". 

Love Is Like Oxygen

Written by: Scott/Griffin
Year: 1978
Produced By: Connolly/Scott/Tucker/Priest

Love is like oxygen
You get too much you get too high
Not enough and you're gonna die
Love gets you high

Love is like oxygen "Love is like oxygen"
You get too much you get too high "Love is like oxygen too high"
Not enough and you're gonna die "Love is like oxygen gonna die"
Love gets you high

Time on my side
I got it all
I've heard that pride
Always comes before a fall
There's a rumour goin' round the town
That you don't want me around
I can't shake off my city blues
Everyway I turn I lose

Love is like oxygen "Love is like oxygen"
You get too much you get too high "Love is like oxygen too high"
Not enough and you're gonna die "Love is like oxygen gonna die"
Love gets you high

Love is like oxygen "Love is like oxygen"
You get too much you get too high "Love is like oxygen too high"
Not enough and you're gonna die "Love is like oxygen gonna die"
Love gets you high

Time is no healer
If you're not there
Lonely fever
Sad words in the air
Some things are better left unsaid
I'm gonna spend my days in bed
I'll walk the streets at night
To be hidden by the city lights city lights

Love is like oxygen "Love is like oxygen"
You get too much you get too high "Love is like oxygen too high"
Not enough and you're gonna die "Love is like oxygen gonna die"
Love gets you high

Love is like oxygen "Love is like oxygen"
You get too much you get too high "Love is like oxygen too high"
Not enough and you're gonna die "Love is like oxygen gonna die"
Love gets you high

Love is like oxygen
Love is like oxygen
Love is like oxygen
Love is like oxygen

Thanks, Milla!
