I Want To Take A Ride On Your Disco…WHAT?!

According to Billboard’s top 100, Lady Gaga’s song Love Game is ranked as number nine. It’s thanks to artists like Lady Gaga that make me concerned about the music industry. Her single Pumpkin Face was extremely successful, and so was her other single Just Dance. Pumpkin Face brought the subliminal messages of a game of poker to the surface, while Just Dance was a song about getting drunk at a party–though it’s details were more honest than most songs about partying.

Her newest song Love Game definitely caught me off guard, when I overheard that catchy hook of: ‘Let’s have some fun, this beat is sick. I wanna take a ride on your disco stick.’

Oh my God! What on Earth could she be talking about…
You got it:

SEX

Woohoo, how original.

But there is something a tad impressive about this song…take a look at the lyrics:

let's have some fun, this beat is sick
I wanna take a ride on your disco stick
(2x)

(huh) (2x)
I wanna kiss you (huh)
but if I do then I might miss you, babe (huh)
it's complicated and stupid (huh)
got my ass squeezed by sexy cupid (huh)
guess he wants to play, wants to play
a love game, a love game (huh)

hold me and love me
just want touch you for a minute
maybe three seconds is enough
for my heart to quit it

let's have some fun, this beat is sick
I wanna take a ride on your disco stick
don't think too much, just bust that kick
I wanna take a ride on your disco stick

let's play a lovegame, play a lovegame
do you want love, or you want fame
are you in the game (huh)
dans the lovegame (huh)
(2x)

(huh)

I'm on a mission
and it involves some heavy touching, yeah
you've indicated you're interest
I'm educated in sex, yes
and now I want it bad, want it bad
a love game, a love game

hold me and love me
just want to touch you for a minute
maybe three seconds is enough
for my heart to quit it

let's have some fun, this beat is sick
I wanna take a ride on your disco stick (huh)
don't think too much, just bust that kick
I wanna take a ride on your disco stick (huh)

let's play a lovegame, play a lovegame
do you want love, or you want fame
are you in the game (huh)
dans the lovegame (huh)
(2x)

(huh)

I can see you staring there from across the block
with a smile on your mouth and your hand on your (huh)
the story of us, it always starts the same
with a boy and a girl and a (huh) and a game
and a game (huh) (3x)
a lovegame

let's play a lovegame, play a lovegame
do you want love, or you want fame
are you in the game (huh)
dans the lovegame (huh)
(4x)

The story of the song (a boy and a girl meet at a party) is almost too realistic. Okay, let’s be honest girls. If you go off to a party, meet some sweet/cute guy…what’s going through your head?

Will I ever see him again?

Should I give him my number?

Is he the one?

I want to leave with him, but how?

Oh please girls, be honest!

Love Game takes the dynamics of a party and sprays it with Windex…naughty yet noticeable. An average party girl can definitely relate with the line:

'just want to touch you for a minute
maybe three seconds is enough
for my heart to quit it'

This explains the feeling of wanting to get closer to the person, but too scared to cross the line. The repetitive yet annoying chorus elaborates on the process of flirting, but teasing your emotions at the same time.

If we take a step back and evaluate all of the music that has been exposed in the last ten years or so, we can narrow it down like this.

Britney Spears: Crossed the line and gave innocence a new image.

Lady Gaga: Crossed her own boundary and lets her conscience do the talking.
