Always cheers me up

I love Nicole and her covers. Whenever I feel a bit blah and meh, I listen to her music and it cheers me up. Her voice is sweet 🙂 This is her latest cover:

Love this girl!

I love Nicole – finally know her name after referring to her as Ukulele Girl!

This is her cover of Frosty the Snowman using the beat of cups.

She is way cute and very talented.

She always puts a smile on my face 🙂

The break down on lyrics

Today, I decided to have a snapshot of the music we listen to today. It’s all happy for people to bop along to their favourite track, but, do people actually realize the lyrics they sing? Sometimes I think WTF and other times I just laugh but think about all those children who are oblivious to the true meaning of what they’re listening to. It must be a nightmare for parents in our growing sexualised society.

But seriously, when you were a kid and you sang “I touch myself” did you really know what Divinyls were on about? Nothing wrong with masturbation and fantasizing about being with the person you love. But here are some of the lyrics:

I love myself
I want you to love me
When I’m feelin’ down
I want you above me
I search myself
I want you to find me
I forget myself
I want you to remind me

I don’t want anybody else
When I think about you
I touch myself
I don’t want anybody else

and here’s the video as a special reminder:

So truly, this is the song that got me thinking about this whole topic and I’ve decided to break down the mainstream songs that get played on the radio(and played recently):

Johnny Ruffo’s “On Top”. Your question is: What is he on top of?

Well:

Tonight it’s going down
No-one else around
I’ll be on top of the world, when I’m on top of you girl
Ain’t no doubt about it
I know you want it now
I’ll be on top of the world, when I’m on top of you girl

What the frak did you just sing? That’s right, “I’ll be on top of the world, when I’m on top of you girl”

I support Perth talent but my gosh….

Next up:

Nicole Scherzinger’s “Right There”

The song is about expressing what you like about your partner and what he does to you. My favourite lyrics of this song:

I like the way that you talk dirty
Don’t wash your mouth out I like it dirty
You like to please yeah I like that yeah yeah yeah yeah me like it
I like the way that you keep me coming
That yeah you so good you had me running
Me like the way that he goin’ down down down down down

What the frak did you just sing? “I like the way that you keep me coming, That yeah you so good you had me running”

Too much detail me thinks….

And yes, I do need to target Australian artists as well because I live in this country and they are exposing me to this music:

Ricki Lee’s “Do It Like That”:

One taste of my apple pie, satisfy your appetite
So, baby get ready for this
‘Cause it’s about to get serious

You like it when I do it like that
You watch it when I do it like that
Gotta have it when I do it like that
You want, want, want me when I do it like that

Now, you’re probably thinking this song isn’t too bad with lyrics. That’s because you are blinded by the poppy beats and the fact that she is dancing in underwear. What the frak did you just sing? “One taste of my apple pie, satisfy your appetite”.

Yes she is talking about her vagina tasting like dessert…

And who doesn’t like a song about whistles:

Flo Rida’s “Whistle” gives insight on how to blow a whistle:

Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby
Let me know
Girl I’m gonna show you how to do it
And we start real slow
You just put your lips together
And you come real close
Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby
Here we go

What the frak did you just sing? “Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby, Let me know.Girl I’m gonna show you how to do it”

Blowing a whistle isn’t that hard but what gives this song away that he is talking about his penis is the fact that Flo Rida will teach you how to blow him… Don’t worry… He’ll teach you. Also, not enough booty in that clip.

~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s too obvious to use every Nicki Minaj song or Rihanna’s S&M because they ooze inappropriateness. Next time you listen to a song, think about what you’re singing. You might just laugh. We sing thoughtlessly most of the time.

My boyfriend told me it’s easy to for people to like music because of their catchy beats. This is true. Why do you think Gangnam Style is so popular? Not the fact that he sings in a foreign language but the fact the dance beat captures you. There are so many dirty lyrics out there disguised under these magnificently created tunes and when you actually read the lyrics without music, you get exposed to a new way of listening to that song.

Breaking down lyrics has been an interesting way to spend my morning. I may do this again soon.
