Linda Ronstadt's, "Different Drum"
The Lyrics:
So goodbye I'll be leaving
I see no sense in this crying and grieving
It's a flowing and happy-sounding song, but it's all about not being interested in this guy! or not wanting a monogamous relationship with him...

Linda Ronstadt's, "Different Drum"
The Lyrics:
You and I, travel to a beat of a different drum,
Can't you tell by the way I run, every time you lay eyes on me.
Major key, cheerful harpsichord solo, a baroque-style string arrangement, but the song is about a woman who dumps her man saying, "It isn't you, It's me." concept.
