On Monday, Jessie J is releasing her fifth single, Domino, from her debut album Who You Are. This is despite this song being overplayed to death already on commercial radio stations, and Radio 2, trying to get down with the kids.
So what’s the song all about?
She is feeling sexy and free, which to me means she is up for a ride. A massive statement to make in the opening line. A bit like turning up to a first date with a massive red arrow pointing at your crotch area and winking incessantly at the lucky person facing you.
Like Glitters raining on me. I capitalised glitter for comic effect as it suggests Gary Glitter is involved, however J is 21 years old so it doesnt really work.
You’re like a shot of pure gold, is interesting to me as I havent drunk in some months and hadnt realised people were now drinking gold. Does explain all those cash for gold adverts though.
I think I’m ‘bout to explode is a line of pure filth, we know what you mean J.
I can taste the tension like a cloud of smoke in the air. Professor Brian Cox has looked into this line with Dara O’Briain and neither has a clue if this is a) humanly possible or b) a lot of shite.
Now I’m breathing like I’m running cause you’re taking me there. So, they have started the intercourse that J alluded to in her first line. Wonder how its going?
Dont you know…you spin me out of control. Its going well, hurray!
Ooh ooh ooh ooh. Legend in the sack here it would seem a full four oohs.
We can do this all night. Wow this is going on for ages, and a bit of pressure exerted on her partner.
Damn this love is skin tight. I dont think love can be skin tight so am going to assume she is now making up stuff to sound sexy and cool.
Baby come on. Hmm.
Ooh ooh ooh ooh. Where would songwriters be with ooh, yeah, baby and aah?
Boomin’ like a bass drum. Its going a bit 90’s rave scene now, and I like it.
Sparkin’ up a rhythm. Oh yeah, I feel it. ”Here we, here we, here we fucking go”.
Baby, come on! I’m there!
Ooh ooh ooh ooh. Oh its went all samey now.
Rock my world until the sunlight. Ok…. are you sure, it has been going on for a while, love. *looks at his casio watch*
Make this dream the best I’ve ever known. Ah, its a dream that makes sense as a lot of this did seem a little far fetched. All night?
Dirty dancing in the moonlight. Toploader said it best if I’m being honest, dont muck about with a lyric that has stood up well to test of time.
Take me down like I’m a domino. What came first domino rallies (not like a demonstration for better rights for dominos) or the game of dominoes (ah’m chapping etc)? Wonder which domino she is referring to?
Every second is a highlight. Me too.
When we touch don’t ever let me go. Ditto. Sorry Dirty Dancing references put Swayze in my head.
Dirty dancing in the moonlight. Best Swayze film though was Pointbreak. No arguments, despite presence of Keanu.
Take me down like I’m a domino. Got to be a rally.
You got me losing my mind. Well it has been good sex J, and that will do that to you. I’ve been told.
My heart beats out of time. Right, that is a worry. Maybe we should stop?
I’m seeing Hollywood stars. Wow, you are all over the place. We really should stop. Although, what was it like, I’ve always wanted to see the walk of fame?
You strum me like a guitar. Oh, right. One question, how? I know a wee bit about female anatomy and I dont remember every thinking I need a plectrum to perform here. I dont think there are many strings involved. Maybe some bongo drums and then a wind instrument in the other place?
After that you have a lot of repeating and falling back on the big four (ooh, aah, yeah, baby), and you get the picture. J has written what to me is a piece of erotica.
