…I found myself actually liking Justin Timberlake’s techno “Sexyback“. This revelation totally mortifies me and I guess by “like” I mean it had me car-dancin’. I don’t know the lyrics….didn’t google them before I wrote this. I also haven’t seen the video (and I’m SURE there is one), which would probably also give me cause never to listen to it again. Imagining it’s pure trash, my liking it will probably be short lived.
It was on THREE TIMES, three different stations this morning, and I was bizarrely drawn to that likely-devil-worshipping back beat, kind of like the way you can’t help but get sucked into a reality show once you start watching one. Or maybe the way you rubberneck a trainwreck. Goodness knows this is the last thing I’d want my 9-year-old singing!
For the record, I’ve never been a JT fan…not now, not when he was the poster boytoy for *NSYNC, not when he & Britney were a love thang, not when he was a Mouseketeer.
But………for today…….in my ignorance, I’m moving to the beat.
UPDATE: I told my sister (who’s pretty liberal) about jammin’ to this today. She’s convinced I’ve lost my mind…”How COULD YOU………….????” (disappointment ringing in her shrill). “What would you do if you heard Rachel singing that?” Yeah, yeah, I know, I THINK SHE’S RIGHT! THEN, Thomas saw this post. “You like Sexyback???” with disbelief in his expression. Um….well…UGH! :/ I told him that yeah, I liked it, but I sure didn’t think I should. Told him I hated the thought of being a terrible influence on him. Told him I hadn’t googled the lyrics on purpose ’cause I didn’t wanna know how “bad” it was. At least he “gets” me; he soooo gets me. Crap. I cannot imagine what it’s like having ME for a mom :/.
Wow, making up for lost time eh?
I’m not going to say anything, last time I responded to a post about music, Melissa reamed me! But don’t worry, I bit back and we burreid the hatchet.
I don’t know that I would even recognize his song(s). Now, I have to get to iTunes to see what I’m missing.
Who is Justin Timberlake?
hee hee – you are too funny. I’ll have to go check the song out now.
I wonder what it’s like to have me for a Mom sometimes too. A strange thought, isn’t it? I’m sure our kids are in denial about some of our quirkiness… a good thing. *-)
Ugh…..googled the lyrics. “Toto, we aren’t in Kansas anymore.”
JT just might’ve lost his mousketeer ears on this one.
I can’t understand him anyway, even knowing what he’s saying. Can I just feign ignorance?
I had to LOL at the cardancing. I’m so out of it that I haven’t heard the song. And in your run down of his career, you didn’t mention the Janet Jackson breast baring phase.
