    The room was spinning

    Hello,

    Does the bold text mean he was taken by her beauty so much that the room seemed to him to be spinning?

    I met her in a poolroom
    Her name I didn't catch
    She looks like something special
    The kind who'd understand
    The room was almost spinning
    She pulled another smile
    She had the grace like pleasure
    She had a certain style

    Goodbye Girl, Squeeze, song lyrics

    Thanks a lot

    Possibly. You would have to ask Jules Holland what he meant.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Usually when we say the room is spinning, it means you're dizzy or drunk (or both).

    He's intoxicated by her looks, or dizzy because she took his breath away, etc.

    Actually, you'd have to ask Jools Holland, bhaisahab.
