I have been meaning to bring up Britney Spears' single, “Hold it Against Me” since I first heard it on the radio. Upon first listen, I completely thought it was a joke, a skit for “Funny or Die,” or just some silly radio prank.
“If I said I want your body now,
Would you hold it against me?”
Seriously? When did horrific pick-up lines from the early 90's become fitting song lyrics to the teenage set?
“Cuz you feel like paradise,
And I need a vacation tonight...”
|Awww- remember when she was just a little tyke?|
Perhaps her next song will include lines such as, “Was your daddy a robber? Because he stole the stars from the skies and put them in your eyes,” “Your legs must be tired, because you've been running through my mind all day,” or the classic “Do you have a quarter? I want to call my mom and tell her I'm in love.”
Not that the kiddos listening to her albums will understand why one would need 25 cents to make a phone call...
In my mind this goes down as one of the cheesiest songs in history (but I know I'm forgetting plenty- so remind me of them in the comments).
And the worst crime of all is that I can't get the stupid song out of my head.
p.s. While we're on the musical lyrics' subject, "If you're too school for cool"? What, Pink, are you talking about?
