Is Rebecca Black’s ‘Friday’ The Real Deal? (page 2)
The general reaction to Rebecca’s song has been negative since the video’s release on Friday evening. Most people seem to believe it’s a big joke. Interestingly, the hate has only fueled Rebecca’s popularity. The teenager has been a trending topic on Twitter all weekend and remains atop the list today. Even Nick and Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers quoted lyrics from the song on Twitter.The video for the track is fairly normal for a singer her age: hanging out with friends, taking a joyride and having a good time at a party. What really gets people about the track are the lyrics. ”Yesterday was Thursday/today it is Friday/tomorrow is Saturday/And Sunday comes afterward,” explains the singer on the song’s hook. Is she serious? You bet she is!That’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to ridiculous lyrics included on this track. “… front seat back, back seat, which seat should I take?!,” contemplates the teen about the car’s seating arrangement. Or this gem about deciding what to have for breakfast: ”Gotta have my bowl, gotta have cereal.” It all sounds pretty ridiculous.
