Wusstet Ihr, dass Rihanna im Song "SOS" "Take on me" und andere 80er-Lieder zitiert hat? "Tainted Love" sticht natürlich heraus.
Ich kannte den Song gar nicht...
The “SOS” lyrics are all about romantic desperation, and they’re mostly a stitched-together collection of pop-song quotes: “Take on me, you know inside you feel it, right?/ Take me on, I could just die up in your arms tonight/ I melt with you, you got me head over heels/ Boy, you keep me hangin’ on, the way you make me feel.” Those lyrics are perfectly trite, and they lump all of ’80s pop into one indistinct whole. But those lyrics also capture that weird sensation of only being able to properly convey your feelings through the medium of pop music. Picture Rihanna outside someone’s window, holding up a boom box, frantically tuning to different radio stations to find the exact right song.
ab 1:53h zu hören:
Take on me (uh-huh), you know inside you feel it right
Take me on, I could just die up in your arms tonight
I melt with you, you got me head over heels (over heels)
Boy, you keep me hanging on, the way you make me feel
