I think this song is really cute. It’s about a couple that is in love despite the fact that the guy doesn’t have any money which is sort of an old-timey theme for a song.
Thanks to the Spice Girls, I will always have a place in my heart for British girl groups.
Whenever this song pops up on my running list I get pumped up. It’s so ridiculous and manic and the official music video is only thing that ever really makes me want to live in New York.
I had two dancey-related Talking Heads moments last year: First was at my friend Tracy’s wedding when the DJ played “Life During Wartime” and the second was when I watched “Stop Making Sense” and I knew I had to throw some in my next playlist. This is of course an homage to the baby, who is cute cute as a button.
I was not allowed to have a beeper when I was in high school, because they were for drug dealers.
Last summer when I was pretty hugely pregnant I participated in a karaoke charity event and sang this song while wearing a little summer dress and I didn’t even it make it to the next round, let alone win, which I am still bitter about. But at least I learned more of the lyrics to this song.
This song still makes me happy. You can’t fight City Hall.
I’m not sure how I came to acquire this song but I like to throw something old like this on my playlists because you can do the most fun dances to songs from the ‘60’s.
This song is NOT safe for work:
We dance to this song in my WERQ class and so it helps that I have a little routine already built into it. I was worried when I first added it to the playlist that it was too weird and nasty but then when it played I realized that I would have danced to a whole playlist like this.
This is nerdy but I read an article in the New Yorker about K-pop and felt compelled to look up all the songs mentioned in the article. This was my favorite because it sounds like Britney Spears and a computer made a baby. I thought it’d be a good palate-cleanser after Lil Wayne.
This video is the best. That is all.
If you watch Madagascar 3 (and you should: it’s funny and weird), this song will be in your head all night. It makes me want to dance like an idiot so I thought it’d be a good way to wrap up the cold night.
