"It's a kind of childish song. There have been times when I've felt a little tired of it, but that's also to do with the fact that people always ask me what the song's about, and I never tell people what songs are about." - Simon Le Bon
"It's a really interesting lyric. You wouldn't hear a lyric like that today. The early '80s was really great for profoundly weird, paranoid pop lyrics." - John Taylor
''I first heard Nile Rodgers' remix of 'The Reflex' in Roanoke, Virginia, at a hotel dayroom between sound check and show, when Paul Berrow handed me the phone for a listen. He was ecstatic, could barely contain himself. ''We’ve got ourselves a monster bloody hit here, John. I can feel it in my bones.'' - John Taylor
