First of all, I have just today come back to The Pit just to reminisce. I missed you all, and I laughed out loud for at least half an hour at a couple of funny threads.
Anyways- some background. In my English class we had to look at songs and review lyrics, meanings, and things like that. I was finishing my project as I was looking at the Pit when I heard the song Friday.
Then I had an Idea- I sent an email to my English teacher. Then, I decided to share it with the Pit, just to Nostalgia.
Here it is:
___________________________________________________________________
First, listen.

Now, I think that this song has given me so much excitement I would do my project on it.
Unfortunately, I have already completed the project- so perhaps some extra credit.

The lyrics:
http://www.directlyrics.com/rebecca-black-friday-lyrics.html

I think this may be one of the deepest songs I have ever heard. There are so many good points to this song, it's hard to condense it all into one report, but I'm going to try my best.

The first aspect that caught my attention in this song was it's words. I was immediately struck off balance, and almost fell off my chair, when I heard the rhythmical genius that was this song's lyrics. Nowadays there are "Emotional", "Meaningful", or even "Inspirational" songs. This song spits on their feet and defies all laws of song writing.

Some have looked at this song and called it "an unintentional parody of modern pop music", but I think they are just trying to make a joke ,because it was very funny.

I would like to take a look at the lyrics, and there were several lyrics that caught my eye, and I'll tell you why.
"Fun, Fun, Fun, Fun"- this uses repetition to catch it's audience's eyes to how much fun one can have while taking place in politics. Where did I get this Genius assumption? Well I'll tell you.
"Partying partying, yeah! Partying partying, yeah!"- This is where I learned that this song does not stop at the boundaries of Emotion or Religion, but also politics. I believe that when she is saying "Party(ing)", she refers to the either conservative or liberal approach on modern-day politics.
"Kick it in the front seat, sittin' in the back seat"- I think that Rebecca used this as a hidden Cameo from political sides.
"Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday. Today i-is Friday, Friday ... Tomorrow is Saturday. And Sunday comes after...wards."- By using these she is trying to represent that sometimes we lose our place in time. All of us are either spending too much time in the past, or spending too much time in the future. She then tries to tell us to look forward to today, the "now". (As seen by the next "partying, partying, yeah!" line.)
"We-we-we so excited. We so excited"- When I heard this song, it's beauty in complex versing was like a kick in the chest for me. I am crying as I write these words as I reflect upon the Brilliance of this line. I hope you are feeling the same.

Next, I would like to look at the vocals. This is what baffled me. How could a young artist, such as Mrs. Black, be hidden so long from Hollywood's prying eyes? Surely if she has such a beautiful voice, it would be discovered as soon as she reached the age of music. *15 years old, for Justin Beiber.*
That's when I realized that she is only 13 or so, so it would be two more years until she could become famous. But then I had a second revelation- she is younger than Justin Beiber, and almost has the same amazing voice!

Finally, I presented myself a question. What seat would *I* take?
This has massive implications.
I think that Rebecca ("Becca" for shorts) was trying to tell us something. Even more, to make us question where WE, as humanity, sat in life. Do we sit in the front? Where we can see the road ahead of us? Or do we sit in the back, trusting the 13 year old driving the convertible to know where he is going? This made me question God. But in the end, I was only reaffirmed in my faith that I should sit in the back, just like legendary Rebecca Black, and allow, as seen in this Taylor Swift song, for "Jesus to take the Wheel".

Please send me your thoughts, and how much extra credit I am to receive.
-Andrew

Back when I was goin' to school,
I never learned a thing
All I did was daydream,
a-waitin' for the bell to ring
I had a certain teacher,
I always tried to impress her
When she stood up in the classroom,
I would mentally undress her
Then one day I decided,
that I would write a little letter
She said the spellin' was a masterpiece,
the punctuation could be better
I understood what she was saying,
I got the gist of her sentiment
She said "I don't mean to be degrading,
"but here's the way that it should've went:"

Chorus) I love you period
Do you love me question mark
Please, please exclamation point
I want to hold you in parentheses
I love you period

Do you love me question mark
Please, please exclamation point
I want to hold you in parentheses

Right on up to high school,
people said I was a writin' fool
All my letters became really great,
with punctuation that was never late
But I was havin' trouble meetin' girls,
I never knew the things to say
Soon I had 'em all overwhelmed,
when they heard me talk this way, like this:

Chorus) I love you period
Do you love me question mark
Please, please exclamation point
I want to hold you in parentheses
I love you period
Do you love me question mark
Please, please exclamation point
I want to hold you in parentheses

There are better ways of thinking such questions, instead of such a stupid song, please stop trying to find something in there, cuz I don't really think those guys at Ark Music Factory actually thought all the shit they were writing, they just made the song cuz "Becca" payed them, not really a big deal. Nothing to dig in here man...
