I went on a quick coffee break.. friend says, i heard this new song on MTV last night, pretty nice. I say, cool and then thought nothing of it, until another group of younger guys come over with one of their phones playing the same song.. my group rejoices, complimentsthe song choice, while the others who hadn't heard it tune in.
Slow smiles and head swings. I didn't get it.
Fast forward, got back to my seat and checked my mails.. tadaa! The lyrics for the songs, sent by a colleague to some of us that knew tamil. I didn't even know he'd come into work yet.. Walked over to ask him if that was the first mail that he sent that day.. he chuckles and goes, what a song man.. nonsens-u but-u very true-u
I knew I had been marked on something 'cool', so I forward the mail with the lyrics to 2 others that I know. In five mins I have two others, asking me to forward the lyrics... what is it about this song??!!.. I glanced over the lyrics and thought to myself: ok, so it's another song about a boy, alcohol and a girl.
Fast forward later in the day.. locker room, another fella playing the song YET again.. my friend asks what song da... nice song, listen no... after a few minutes how are things with the girlfried, my friend asks. oh for her only man, everything gon-u, stupid boy-u, girlsz come-u, girlsz go-u, singing looking at the sky through the ceiling of the locker room.. both laugh..
I still don't get it.
Got home, logged into fb.. and yup you guessed it. It's gone viral, 6 friends have shared the video..so I played it, I listened to it & well, googled it.. and apparently it's hit 5 million or so hits on you tube. So i thought, lemme go blog it.. and tell everyone, I DON'T GET IT!!!
IS IT BECAUSE IT'S SIMPLE, AND OPEN FOR INTERPRETATION (MEANING NO ONE REALLY KNOWS WHY THEY LIKE IT, BUT LIKE IT BECAUSE THEY WANT OTHER PEOPLE TO THINK THAT THEY KNOW THE MEANING OF IT?)
Here, you be the judge, tell me what you get... I have to admit though, it is catchy.
