96* Hotline Bling

Sunday is my new Saturday.

Could it be possible? Am I entering a new stage of my life in which my “social day” has changed? Am I a grown up now!?

Yeah, I didn’t think so either. Problem is I’m having classes on saturdays so if you’ve ever been on my place, probably you’ll pretty much agree that it messes up the natural week-cycle in which you are ready to party by saturday because now instead I have to sleep early on fridays so I can get up earlier on saturdays and then be way too tired that night to go out so rather stay home until I somehow regain energy -too late- on sundays…

All this previous rambling about my weekends has a point: It was exactly what I was -saddly- thinking about this sunday night while I was driving to hangout with a friend when suddenly a mysterious yet juvenil tune came on the radio.

Now guess the song 😉

Yes, you’re right!

Totally!

It was Drake’s Hotline Bling!

 

LOL I just have such a good time listening, writing or talking about this song. It really improves my mood and has the power to turn a lazy sunday night into the beginning of a fun adventure…

And is not that the original official music video isn’t funny enough but I found something funnier (if possible) and you might be surprised that it has to do with marketing efforts but honestly T-mobile just pushed the joke further! LOOK:

This is gonna mark our generation. Life changing music, I’m telling ya!

Going back to the original music video… I know it’s weird with the box, the moves, the chicks, it’s all just so confusing and though its astethic might be clear it’s questionable… but I can’t deny that I actually liked the beginning and the end of the vid with the old-style girls wearing high wasted jeans and pale pink t-shirts but I guess we can agree that their poses throughout this music video and the rest of girls’ appareances wouldn’t be that much appealing to feminists to say the least.

Anyhow if you ever want to feel better about your -possibly non-existent- dancing talent… let’s watch Drake’s dance moves which demonstrate that anybody can dance anyway!

 

You used to call me on my
You used to, you used to
Yeah

You used to call me on my cell phone
Late night when you need my love
Call me on my cell phone
Late night when you need my love
And I know when that hotline bling
That can only mean one thing
I know when that hotline bling
That can only mean one thing

Ever since I left the city,
You got a reputation for yourself now
Everybody knows and I feel left out
Girl you got me down, you got me stressed out
‘Cause ever since I left the city,
you started wearing less and goin’ out more
Glasses of champagne out on the dance floor
Hangin’ with some girls I’ve never seen before

(…)

Ever since I left the city, you, you, you
You and me we just don’t get along
You make me feel like I did you wrong
Going places where you don’t belong
Ever since I left the city,
you, you got exactly what you asked for
Running out of pages in your passport
Hanging with some girls I’ve never seen before

(…)

These days, all I do is
Wonder if you bendin’ over backwards for someone else
Wonder if you’re rollin’ up a backwoods for someone else
Doing things I taught you, gettin’ nasty for someone else
You don’t need no one else
You don’t need nobody else, no
Why you never alone
Why you always touching road
Used to always stay at home, be a good girl
You was in a zone, yeah
You should just be yourself
Right now, you’re someone else
