David and I try to keep our thumb on the pulse of the music charts as much as we can, understanding that music is a huge influence on teenagers today.
Earlier this week Dave gave me the heads up about a new song that has crept its way up into Billboard’s and iTunes Top 10. The song is called Good Girls Go Bad, by a group called Cobra Starship (no relation to Jefferson).
David researched the song and has written a Youth Culture Window article about the song, the lyrics, the video and the group.
Here’s just a snippet:
The song employs an interesting “symmetry.” Saporta sings a verse about his coercion capabilities on the opposite sex, and moments later, the female vocalist affirms a very similar sentiment. Like a snake responding to a charmer, the girl plays her part…right into his hands. Take a look for yourself.(male singer)I make them good girls go badI make them good girls goGood girls go bad, good girls go badI know your type, you’re daddy’s little girlJust take a bite (one bite)Let me shake up your world‘Cause just one night couldn’t be so wrongI’m gonna make you lose control(female singer)I know your type, boy you’re dangerousYou’re that guy I’d be stupid to trustBut just one night couldn’t be so wrongYou make me wanna lose control
