Inappropriate Songs we listened to as Kids

I was in the car with my mom and younger brother, and we were listening to the radio. The song Pillow Talk came on and my 11 year old brother was singing along to it perfectly. He doesn’t know what he is singing about but he loves any Top 40 music. Then I started thinking ‘did I innocently sing along to bad songs on the radio too?’

Turns out, we totally did.

Milkshake – Kelis

Notable Lyric: “You want me to teach thee/ Techniques that freaks these boys/ It can’t be bought”

Lady Marmalade – Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya, Pink

Notable Lyric: “Voulez-vous coucher avec moi”

I guess our French classes weren’t all that useful.

Candy Shop – 50 Cent ft. Olivia

 Notable Lyric: “I’m seasoned vet when it come to this shit
After you work up a sweat you can play with this stick”

That would be my pickup line.

Bed Rock – Young Money

Notable Lyric: “My room is the G spot/ Call Me Mr.Flinstone/ I Can Make Your Bed Rock”

3 – Britney Spears

Notable Lyric: “one, two, three…/Peter, Paul and Mary/Getting down with 3P… everybody loves Unh”

SexyBack – Justin Timberlake

Notable Lyric: “I’m your slave/ I’ll let you whip me if I misbehave”

U + Ur Hand – Pink

Notable Lyric: “It’s just you and your hand tonight”

I first heard this song from my friends’ mom who played this in her mini van. Oops.

Lollipop – Lil Wayne ft. Static

Notable Lyric: “Shawty wanna’ hump, you know I’d like to touch ya lovely lady lumps”

First of all don’t call me Shawty and I prefer to call them lady curves, not lumps. Kk thanks.


Why do all songs gotta have some sexual undertone to them?!

Monthly Music Roundup: June!

These posts are to share what I’ve been listening to and loving during the month. It may include current music, and it may be music from the past, its just what I’m currently loving.


Training Wheels – Melanie Martinez

This quirky love song is a beautiful piece written by my favourite, Melanie Martinez. I wrote a whole spotlight on her, click here.

Stone Cold – Demi Lovato

Demi’s voice gives me chills. This live in studio version is amazing!

Boyfriend – Tegan & Sara

I love the 80s-synth pop sound of this song

Me Too – Meghan Trainor

Meghan slays in the video for this song. Going to see her in concert this summer!

Company – Justin Bieber

This is my song when I’m driving at night, hopefully no one looks in at my dance moves

Too Good – Drake ft. Rihanna

This is my favourite from Views right now. My boyfriend and I sing this together, not the best song to sing to your partner, lol.

Wild – Troye Sivan

I listened to this for hours on end. Sidenote, watch the BLUE NEIGHBOURHOOD trilogy. Part 2/3 will take you through a rollercoaster of emotions.

Pity Party – Melanie Martinez

I’m so obsessed with Melanie, its all I’ve been listening to.

Into You – Ariana Grande

Love this Ariana song so much. When it first came out I literally played it over and over and over.

Melanie Martinez (Artist Spotlight)

In 2012, Melanie was a contestant on Season 3 of The Voice. She chose Adam Levine to be her coach and made it to the Top 6. After the show she released her debut single, Dollhouse on April 22, 2014. Her EP Dollhouse, was released on May 19, 2014 which included the song “Carousel.” The song was featured in a preview for American Horror Story: Freak Show. Her newest album Cry Baby was released August 14, 2015. The album debuted at number 6 on the Billboard 200.

I first discovered Melanie after I found a music video of hers while looking for some new music on Youtube. It was the video for Dollhouse. It captured my attention very quickly because it opens with a young girl in her bedroom reading, with creepy scary movie sounds. Within the first minute I found out the song wasn’t as sweet as the music video made it look. The dollhouse isn’t exactly what it seems. That is my favourite thing about her. Throughout her music she uses very conceptual ideas. Her album art work and music videos use imagery of children and family, toys and the innocence of a child. The tracklist sounds like a nursery rhyme, but its more like a nightmare. She uses the character Cry Baby to tackle emotional abuse, romances and their struggles, and family issues. She is the perfect balance of light and dark.


On a lighter note, she is also just so fucking cool. Ever since she was on the voice she has stayed consistent with her look and aesthetic. If her youthful, colourful tattoos, her two-toned hair and her tooth gap doesn’t make her unique than I don’t know what will. Her voice is something that makes her stand out as well. She has the voice where she can sound emotional, whispery, quirky and alternative all in one song. She has a very electronic pop sound that appeals to everyone.


Its a dark album wrapped up in a pink bow.

Cry Baby

Cry Baby is the album’s opening song and is an introduction to the character Cry Baby. The character comes from Melanie and how sensitive she is, and how she can cry at simple little things. The track is very important for setting up the childlike ideology for the album. The character is a young girl who has to deal with many adult situations.

“Tears fall to the ground, I just let them drown”

The character is seen as having a heart too big for her body that it doesn’t even fit inside. She seems to be hurt by the name calling and gets defensive and even says she doesn’t “fucking care.” You find out throughout the story how Cry Baby does with pretending not to care.

This is Cry Baby. She is a child who experiences adult things. She is a very emotional and love sick girl.



This song and video use the young child, adult themes. It is a look into Cry Baby’s home life. Its an easy message, you never know what happens behind closed doors.

“Everyone thinks that we’re perfect, Please don’t let them look through the curtain”

As she plays with her dolls, the dollhouse is all a façade. The dollhouse looks perfect and put together on the outside, but as you open it up there are more problems visible.

Cry Baby’s mother is an alcoholic, her father is a cheater and the brother smokes weed in his bedroom. Cry Baby’s family is perfect on the outside, but behind the walls they aren’t.


Training Wheels

Training Wheels is a love song off the album. Not only is the song beautiful and gorgeously sung, but the song is a metaphor about building a relationship. He is riding a bike but she is ready to go to the next step. She wants to take off his training wheels and ride a two-wheeler with him.

“I’ll carry band-aids on me now, for when your soft hands hit the jagged ground” 

When you take the training wheels off it runs the risk of falling and hurting yourself. Much like falling in love. Cry Baby promises the boy that she will be there for him, by carrying band-aids.

Cry Baby meets a boy who she really likes. She wants to take it to the next level and remove his training wheels.


Pity Party

Pity Party is the most main stream sounding song. It includes a sample from Lesley Gore’s song, “It’s My Party.”  The song is an emotional outburst from Cry Baby. She put herself out there by inviting a boy she likes to her party, and he doesn’t show up, no one does. This hurts her so bad that she almost goes insane as you can see in the music video. The lyrics start out with doubt. Cry Baby wants to know why this happened, and if she should blame herself.

“Did my invitations disappear? Why’d I put my heart on every cursive letter?”

She then tries to justify why they didn’t come and cheer herself up by saying at least theres more cake for her. Cry Baby decides its okay to cry and by the bridge of the song she is at full rage.

It’s her birthday, and she invited her friends and her crush. No one showed up, so she is having a pity party for one.


Mrs. Potato Head

The song Mrs. Potato Head, focuses on how hard it is to grow up with self-acceptance in a society that is so judgemental.

“Don’t be dramatic it’s only some plastic, no one will love you if you’re unattractive”

This line is repeated lots in the song. In a passive aggressive, kind of sarcastic way, talks about the insane lengths that people go for beauty. She asks “does a new face come with a warranty?” She uses the theme of toys, as Mrs. Potato Head can easily be fixed or changed easily to look different. She is also referencing how society can change a child’s innocence once they have pressure to look or act a certain way.

Cry Baby meets Mrs. Potato Head, a woman with a plastic face. Cry Baby is asking if the money and surgery makes all the compliments and attention worth it.


I picked only 5 songs to share, but I highly recommend listening to the whole album. I cannot stress how amazing she is. This whole record is solid. If you appreciate good lyric writing then you will love listening to this album as a story. If you like alternative or an electronic sound than there is something here for you as well. If you are a person you will love this album. There are so many stories and topics covered that there will be things that you relate to and connect with.

She is playing Osheaga and I really want to get my back better so I can go!
