Ke$ha - We R Who We R

hot and dangerous / if you’re one of us then roll with us

I mean, listen, this is not not a call to join some kind of revolution. I mean, I guess technically mostly it’s about wearing good eyeshadow and getting trashed, but it’s not like those things are mutually exclusive.

we runnin this town just like a club

I mean, listen, I’m not gonna say that “the club” as it is often referenced in recent pop music is a site that both transcends and in some way revolts against a vaguely-defined outer power structure, a idealized place of relief from the strange bodily ills of capitalism, a broken fragment of a strange utopia clinging like a gross barnacle to the soft sad underbelly of a dystopia, but also, like, what do you do at the club? Personally I mostly try to situate my body as a conduit for some kind of joy not inherently provided, and in fact often inhibited, by the value-structures of an outside world, perhaps to personal detriment, and probably to no significant revolutionary effect, but standing in some small personal opposition all the same. Sorry, I mean, “dance.”

tonight we’re going hard / just like the world is ours

I mean, listen, I dunno, it’s like, would this song even exist if there weren’t a lot of people who feel like the world isn’t theirs?

There are actually no words to describe how excited I am.

“I want to just be lazy and I want some of the people around me to be doing things, because that makes me feel comfortable and safe - and I want some of them to be doing nothing at all, because they can be graceful and companionable for me.”

It’s raining in Vegas.
