Last weekend I was doing one of my favorite things while cooking breakfast on a Saturday morning… Watching a recording of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (2008). Something struck me on this particular viewing, what do the lyrics to our favorite songs really supposed to tell us? This year’s fashion show was packed full of these puzzling lyrics…. So, I went to work on google and dissected some of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show soundtrack:
Here’s what I’ve learned:
Peter, Bjorn & John – A political social statement or just a hatred for Children? Opinions differ.
Killers – To say opinions differ would be an understatement. There is so much interpretation of this song you can make it into whatever you want it to be. I believe that you have a choice of convention (human) or self expression (dancer)… I want to be a dancer!!
Finally, Chris Brown – Jordan’s on Saturday is actually the easiest one to explain. Air Jordan shoes are released on Saturdays; so, if you’re a Nike Jordan fanatic you will already know what Chris is talking about.
