Tik Tok

Normally I would put this kind of thing on my review blog but I think it's not exactly my highest standard....haha so it gets put on my blog where only I am judged. I found this new song by KE$HA called Tik Tok. It's really a ridiculous song, but it has a good beat that helps always, and the lyrics are so ridiculous that it makes me happy every time I listen because I just laugh. There is one line however that stands out above ALL the rest. So I came up with this (fictional) conversation that happens between Ke$ha and whoever wrote the song (I'm assuming it's some guy who has dreams about what girls really do, like pillow fights in our underwear during sleepovers):

Writer - Okay why don't we run through the song and you can see how you like it.
Ke$ha - Alright. (starts singing) ...(goes through about half the song).... "Now, the dudes are lining up cause they hear we got swagger, But we kick em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger." Whoa. Wait. What was that last part?
W - Oh ya so you like that line?
K - Um.....well I like the first part.
W - I'm sensing some hesitation, don't you like the last part?
K - We're talking Mick Jagger, like the Rolling Stones right?
W - Ya! You know he's knighted right?!
K - Um no I didn't but uh....have you ever seen him?
W - In person no but I love his music.
K - Okay but you've seen like a picture of him right?
W - Oh ya.
K - Um I don't know how to say this but...uh...he's terrible looking. I would kick a guy to the curb if he looked like Mick Jagger. No guy I'm hoping to meet at a club better look like him. He's basically death incarnated. Not to mention I'm like 16 and he's like 60.
W - Oh man. I was hoping this wouldn't come up. Uh...I know that he's not that good looking, but I'm sure he has a good personality! And the guy's been knighted! And the Rolling Stones, he has to be rich ya know?
K - Okay that's all probably true....but why would that matter in a song about me finding a guy to go home with?
W - It should matter all the time Ke$ha!
K - Uh...seriously dude?
W - Alright you really want the truth, I really just couldn't find anything else that rhymed with 'swagger'.
K - Oh. Well alright let's go with it.

So there you have it. My favorite line of the song because the imagry conjured up is just hilarious.

Nice monologue. This song has now been in my head for the last 24 hours. :)
