The Beat Makes Me Wanna Shake My Booty, But The Lyrics Make Me Shake My Head

Alana Karsch

At first the words in this song just make me feel totally pissed off. As the song goes on, though, I start feeling a little punchy. Like, I wanna get up outta my seat and do something about these atrocities (right after I finish dancing). Plus, that beat is pretty good, I hafta say.

Listen to it more than once, and it’ll be the most meaningful song you have stuck in your head all day. The chorus hits at 1:07, and it’s a message I don’t mind singing over and over again.
