If you have not heard Rebecca Black's new hit single "Friday" don't go and buy it on itunes as it is honestly a terrible song. Please just youtube it and make sure to watch the video.
My review of the song/video: The lyrics are terrible, the video is laughable and her voice has more auto tune than Kanye West and Akon combined.
HOWEVER, this song is one of many that could actually do something for this great country of ours.
If you could describe the intended theme of the song, it would be optimism. Here is this teenage girl that cannot wait for Friday so she can go out and have a good time with all of her friends. I mean, who doesn't love a good time with friends?
But I view this song in a different way than just having a ball on friday (as she says- Did you know that Friday was after Thursday???)
Look at the newspaper, the internet, twitter, the carrier pigeons and telegraph lines are all oozing with news about the debt, war, justin beiber's new haircut! in short, all negative and very unattractive things.
Rebecca Black is just one of many independent artists that say that those are just words! Let's defy them and go and have a good time! Let's go to a party and (here's the crux) BUY BUY BUY!
It's encoded in lyrics all across the Itunes Top 10- BUY NOW! THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO BUY
I contend that the 1920's were easily the greatest point of economic prosperity for the Red White and Blue because of CONFIDENCE and OPTISM. Ever since FDR and the "New Communist/Realist/Worst Deal" everybody has been skeptical of the market.
Rebecca Black tells us to just be free and buy buy buy.
YOU KNOW WHAT AMERICA- I THINK SHE MAY BE ON TO SOMETHING!
Peace, Love and Happiness
