Yesterday brother Teej introduced me to an awesome song. The name of the song is "Thrift Shop," which made it about 50 points higher in my book before I even heard it.
I'm gonna pop some tags,It's great. Trust me. You'll see soon enough. Here's another lyric I like:
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket.
I - I - I'm hunting, looking for a come-up.
This is fucking awesome.
Draped in a leopard mink,So many great lyrics, but I think my favorite line is:
Girls standin' next to me,
Probably shoulda washed this,
Smells like R. Kelly's sheets.(Pisssssssss)
But shit... it was ninety-nine cents! (bag it)
They had a broken keyboard,The song itself just makes you want to get up and move! It came on tonight as Sarah, brother Teej, and I were leaving the trivia bar; so we did not leave, and rather Sarah and I broke out into dance for the entire song. My brother says they've been playing "Thrift Shop" every night at this bar (where he works). I think my office needs to start doing the same thing...
I bought a broken keyboard.
I bought a skeet blanket,
And then I bought a kneeboard!
So we've already got a sick beat and entertaining lyrics - if only this song had a legendary music video. Oh wait, it does!
I will end with the video so you all can listen to this song. I'm also including time stamps for some of my favorite moments in the music video:
1:06 - The chair hopping
1:22 - Arms-out-move-hands dance move
1:35 - Little boy flapping arms
3:12 - Great new move
3:25 - The little boys appear!
3:40 - The slow-mo jump... love it!
So there you have it, Thrift Shop. Too bad the lyrics aren't filled with GRE vocab words, then this could dub as studying. Do you think this song is as great as I do?
