The Non-Love Song Song of the Day: Dance Music

6 12 2011

Today I am in need of another installment of some music that has nothing to do with love. Last week I somehow went without posting any music that had nothing to do with love, which was a little saddening (but then again, many of last week’s posts dealt with hockey, which is not a bad substitution). So today we’re bringing back the  Non-Love Song Song of the Day. Today features some fun music that people like to dance to. Dance music very frequently does not talk about love, so this might be my new favorite genre of music.

The first example is from the ever -popular 1990s. Now, who doesn’t like Will Smith? Will Smith touches things and they turn to awesome. Take, his brief rap career of the 90s. Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It is a fine example of a song about pretty much nothing. That however, is not to say the lyrics are junk. Check out some of the fantastic lyrics:

You gotta Prada bag with alotta

Stuff in it- give it to your friend

Let’s spin.

– – – – – –

Ciga-cigar right from Cuba-Cuba

I just bite it.

It’s for the look- I don’t light it.

– – – – – –

No love for the haters, the haters.

Mad ’cause I got floor seats at the Lakers.

See me on the fifty yard line with the Raiders.

Met Ali he told me I’m the greatest.

If this isn't gettin' jiggy wit it, then I don't know what is.

If those aren’t some fantastic lyrics about nothing, then I don’t know what is.

Our second example of a song that is purely about having fun is LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem. The title of the song should give you enough of a hint that this song is just about having fun. The lyrics are purely about having a good time. Something that love doesn’t necessarily guarantee.

Party rock is in the house tonight.

Everybody just have a good time.

And we gonna make you lose your mind.

Everybody just have a good time.

Want more evidence that this song makes you feel like dancing and having fun? Just check out these stills from their famous car-commercial-turned-music-video. I don’t know about you, but when I see hip, dancing hamsters break up nuclear warfare, it just gives me that warm, fuzzy feeling inside:

These robots are here to KILL.

Hamsters to the rescue!

You know it’s a good thing when a song has no mention of love, but instead feeds you confusing imagery of dancing rodents saving the world in a souped-up new car. So take that to the songs that think they can only strive on that lovey-dovey feeling. You’re doing it wrong.
