Pick Me Up

Pin It Updated

Having one of those days?

Need to seriously bust a move and forget all of those things which seem to be cavorting about you incessantly?

Thanks to my blogging friend, Tib, I was introduced to this...



May it bring you up as well...

Addendum: Just to know what the song was actually saying, I listened to it a few times and transcribed the lyrics; what a powerful message. Now did I make a few mistakes?

Probably

Did I spend far too much time doing this?

Probably.

Was it worth it for the message?

I say, yes.


United State of Pop

I know you want pop
You want dance
You want, you got that right
You want it, boom, boom.
This year's remix
got some funny songs

I got pop
I got dance
I got rock I got electronic club beats
I got hip hop music
let the future fly

So don't worry even if the sky is falling down, down, down
Gonna be okay
when it knocks you down, down, down
So baby don't worry
It's alright, alright
When it knocks you down
when you go down, when you go down
No need to worry, just get back up
When you tumbling down, down, down
It's like I've been awakened
(Every step I'm taking)
Every rule I had you breakin'
(Every move I'm making)
It's the risk that I'm takin
(The chances I'm taking)
When you see my face
And it never feels out of place

Livin' on the pop
Livin' on the dance
Livin' on the got that right
Livin' on the 'rumba' seventeen
Got some funny songs
I like that pop
I like that bass
I like that rockin' electronic club beats
Livin' on the hip hop music
Let the future fly

Baby, don't worry it's alright, I'm alright
when it knocks you down
somewhere up along this road
Stressed-out I wanna let it go
I feel down, down, down
Baby are you down, down, down, down?
And oh, (hey) I've been traveling on this road too long (too long)
I'm just tryin' to find my way back home
But the old me's dead and gone
Dead and gone.
I got a feeling (wooh hoo)
I found God

Livin' on the pop
Livin' on the dance
Livin' on the
Got that right
Livin' on the feeling
Livin' on the music of the flyin' songs
We got the pop
We got the dance
We got the rockin' electronic club beats
We got the hip hop music
Let the future fly

People in the place
Put your hands, your hands in the air
Now put cha hands up (uh oh uh uh oh)
Forever united here
Livin' on the poker face
So let's get light
Let's live it up
If you want to get down (down, down)
I want to get down, down, down
So baby, don't worry it's alright, I'm alright
When it knocks you down
When you go down, when you go down
No need to worry
just get back up
When you're tumbling down, down, down...
Don't you

Livin' on the pop
Livin' on the dance
Livin' on the boom, boom, boom
Gotta get that 'rumba'
Able-way what the
Boom, boom, boom
Gotta get that pop
Gotta get that dance
Gotta get that boom, boom, pow
I gotta get, I gotta get
This year's remix
What the future's now

I got a feelin'
And I never really had a doubt
That tonight's gonna be a good night
That tonight's gonna be a good night
And I say the same thing every single time
You know that I could be somebody (be somebody, wooh hoo)
Well open up your plans and then you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love, love, love
Not feelin' down, down, down
Can't you see the love, love, love
Isn't this easy?
Feeling love, love, love
Down, down, down
It's like I've been awakened (can't you see)
to this path I'm takin' (don't be afraid)
The risk that I'm takin' (can't you see)
I've had a little bit too much feeling down, down, down
Can't you see you can make it?
Every rule I had you breaking
Isn't this easy?
Feeling love love love?
Change your mind
Baby, just say it...

Yes.

Is it ok that a song like THAT can put tears in my eyes? (not that they were there already or that I cried or any silly-girly-ness like that).

That was AWESOME.

And time you put into figuring out the lyrics? I surely appreciate it because THAT's when I started crying. Or the song threw tears at me. Whichever.

Rachel said...

Remix is very cool. I liked it...as long as I didn't watch the sex cesspool video that went with.....

Denae said...

That.was.awesome!

Thanks for sharing.

Mamma has spoken said...

I saw that on a morning show Thursday and found it cool. Couldn't help but notice that the remix has the 'mild' portions of the music videos in it....

birdeeb said...

Holy crap that's awesome! I LOVE IT!!! I am gonna have to put it on my profile...I listened to those songs all last year and whoever put it together ROCKS!

birdeeb said...

Oh and I heard Blame it on the pop blame it on the dance blame it on the rock etc etc...I think they said blame? It made me think of the Milli Vanilli song Blame it on the Rain haha ;o)

A Lark said...

Loved it! That was way cool - I knew most of the songs.... I think. Need to listen to it again.

Gerb said...

That was a welcomed spontaneous dance party to celebrate my return to home, sweet home. Because I was flailing my arms and kicking my legs to the beat, I did not watch the video. I'll repent later.

S - I took probably a little bit too much time, to be honest; however, I wanted to use this song in my classroom and we'd need the lyrics...call it homework.

R - Sorry, I didn't have any control over the vid...that's why the lyrics were there; you play the song and then read the lyrics at the same time.

D - I love it, too.

B - Yeah, I looked up a few of the lyrics and videos to figure out the words used in this mash-up. The DJ also used the 'clean' parts of several of those songs.

B - You can download it from the DJ's website, too.

J - I listened to it quite a few times myself.

G - It brought a smile to my face and a lift to my soul. Glad you were able to enjoy it on your return to the 'real world.'

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

Just SO said...

Many thanks to both you and Tib for bringing this to me. Fabulous.

Lori said...

Now that's a mash up--way cool. I especially liked Taylor Swift's and Jason Mraz's additions there at the end--they stood out a little.

Corine said...

I absolutely LOVE this remix song! :D
