I’m not even posting the song, I’m just posting a link, it’s so bad. Go listen to it very carefully, then come back and read the rest of the post. Italics indicate sarcasm.
The first time I heard this hit song, I was flabbergasted. My jaw dropped. And not in a good way. I just didn’t get it, you know. Like, what would she have in her mouth? Gum? Why is that a good thing? So many questions! Subtlety like that just goes right over my head. What I really can’t wrap my head around is that it’s not even supposed to be ironic or anything. I can’t believe this birth defect of an idea for a song wasn’t aborted the next day when the songwriter got sober and saw what he’d done. I mean, I can understand how slumming at this depth of stupid can seem like a good idea when you’re huffing paint behind the studio, but come on. And it’s a hit. Who listens to this? It’s a song for strippers, about strippers. So you go to a strip joint, and then you come home and play this song to help you remember your lap dance better? Seriously, did Beavis and Butt-head write this shit?
