Kiss The Girl

This is one of the many faces of evil.

lyrics
video

This is something very popular.

There you see her
Sitting there across the way
She don"™t got a lot to say


you have no relationship

But there"™s something about her

but she's really hot (see video)

And you don"™t know why

you do. b/c she's hot.

But you"™re dying to try
You wanna kiss the girl


you might be dying to do that. or you might need to be encouraged to interpret your life that way: by friends, by parents, by this song

Yes, you want her
Look at her, you know you do


see. it's encouraging an interpretation.

It"™s possible she wants you, too
There is one way to ask her


"asking" sounds good

It don"™t take a word
Not a single word
Go on and kiss the girl


What. The. Fuck.

just walk up and kiss her. never mind consent. never mind talking. never mind that she might not want to be kissed, by you, now, in this way.

Sing with me now
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
My, oh, my
Look at the boy too shy


now it says if you care about consent, that is being shy

He ain"™t gonna kiss the girl

and it taunts you, and pressures you

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Ain"™t that sad
Ain"™t it shame, too bad
You gonna miss the girl


and makes you feel bad, and threatens you with being lonely/alone/missing out

Now"™s your moment
Floating in a blue lagoon
Boy, you better do it soon
No time will be better
She don"™t say a word
And she won"™t say a word
Until you kiss the girl


now it denies there is any other way. nothing you can do will get her to talk to you ... *except* walking up and kissing her

the video shows people at a party, and she and the guy don't talk, just look across the room. that's intermixed with scenes of her dancing, and scenes from The Little Mermaid. that's right, this is aimed at young *girls*. they want to dance sexy and to be treated this way.

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Don"™t be scared
You got the mood prepared
Go on and kiss the girl
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Don"™t stop now
Don"™t try to hide it how
You wanna kiss the girl


create desires about people you don't know, then be *proud* of them, and act on them.

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Float along
Listen to the song
The song say kiss the girl
Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Music play
Do what the music say
You wanna kiss the girl

You"™ve got to kiss the girl
Why don"™t you kiss the girl
You gotta kiss the girl
Go on and kiss the girl


more pressure and encouraging

-----

"the girl" is generic

kissing is presented as very important

there is more. if you see it, write a comment.

Very bad. Originally, the song is sung to try to encourage the prince to kiss the Little Mermaid, who has given her voice to the sea witch and therefore can't talk to him, and the only way she can get her voice back is if he kisses her. This is bad enough, but it at least makes a tiny bit more sense than the new pop video version, which just becomes horrible, as you describe.
