Yes, I just ripped off Olivia Newton John. Did anyone catch that “Let’s Get Physical” … “Let’s Get Analytical” connection? No? You need to listen to more bad music. Bad music spawns a lot of bad dances, hilarious laughter-filled moments, and all sorts of funny innuendos and references (ala…my blog post title).
In the name of good music…please see below…
My husband is a big fan of rap music and introduced me to the wonderful world of Royce Da 5’9 a few months ago. I’m not really a rap fan but I do like that guy. I also like Eminem and I like Slaughterhouse and I like all the other guys surrounding them so when my husband leaned over to me the other day and said you’ve gotta watch this video. I watched it. If you watched the video I embedded up above then now you’ve seen it too.
It’s pretty great, huh?
Now…let’s analyze. I say the whole thing is an identity struggle. I say that because of the masks (which almost always symbolize a struggle with identity or symbolize the whole multiple persona thing. Think…I’m one way when I’m behaving as a son toward his mother. I’m a different way when I’m behaving as a husband toward his wife. I’m a third way when I’m an employee interacting with my boss. I’m one man…wearing three masks.) I also say identity struggle and realization because of the name tags. I know there are many different people rapping in the video but the name tag keeps ripping off the same physical form which again leads me to believe it’s a multi-faceted personality finidng it’s way to exist as one being.
Or maybe I’m way over-analyzing. I blame college English Literature courses. Over-analyze is all we ever did. Either way…it’s a great song is it not? Sing it… “I know my name…”
