Rebecca Black: ♪ It's Friday. Friday. ♪
[music]
Rebecca Black: ♪ Fun, fun... ♪
(upbeat music)
Rebecca Black: People just don't get it.
They just really don't get the song.
Rebecca Black: I'm surprised when people
hear my song Friday,
Rebecca Black: and think it's just some
breezy pop song.
Rebecca Black: ♪ Getting down on Friday. ♪
Rebecca Black: The writers Clarence Jey
and Patrice Wilson
Rebecca Black: Wilson really layered the song
with a lot of hidden meaning,
Rebecca Black: and I really don't think
people pick up on it
Rebecca Black: the first time
they hear it.
Rebecca Black: What drew me to the song is
that it comes from a really
Rebecca Black: deep and really
painful place.
Rebecca Black: ♪ Gotta have my bowl.
Gotta have cereal. ♪
Rebecca Black: ♪ Seeing everything the time is going to... ♪
Rebecca Black: Gotta have my
bowl. Gotta have cereal.
Rebecca Black: That line, that line
is about consumerism.
Rebecca Black: I got to have my bowl.
I got to have my cereal.
Rebecca Black: We can't live without these
things in modern society,
Rebecca Black: and for some people,
it's a mortgage,
Rebecca Black: and others, it's a
bowl of cereal.
Rebecca Black: ♪ Kicking in my front seat.
Sitting in my back seat. ♪
Rebecca Black: ♪ Gotta make my mind up... ♪
Rebecca Black: Well the choice between
the front seat and the back seat
Rebecca Black: is actually a metaphor for
American Foreign Policy.
Rebecca Black: Front seat Afghanistan, back seat Iraq.
Rebecca Black: We got to make our mind up.
Rebecca Black: ♪ Everybody's looking
forward to the weekend. ♪
Rebecca Black: Looking forward to the
weekend is really
Rebecca Black: about the broken promises
to a generation the
Rebecca Black: current economic climate. Weekend is
a metaphor for financial stability.
Rebecca Black: Knowing assure that stability...
do I have to spell it our for you?
Rebecca Black: What a lot of people don't
realize about Friday,
Rebecca Black: is that a lot of the lyrics
was written in quotation marks.
Rebecca Black: So, it's not really meant to sound
like party and parting, yeah,
Rebecca Black: it's more like party and parting. Yeah.
Rebecca Black: I like to challenge my audience.
Rebecca Black: I'm really influenced my
Tori Amos, Leonard Cohen,
Rebecca Black: and a lot of beat poets. The other
thing people don't realize about Friday,
Rebecca Black: is that it pulls from
a relationship of mine.
Rebecca Black: The entire song is about Dave Coulier.
Rebecca Black: I've never met Dave Coulier,
but I watch Full House a lot
Rebecca Black: and I just never liked
his character Uncle Joey.
