Song of the Day #2,434: ‘Time of Our Lives’ – Pitbull & Ne-Yo

pitbull_time_of_lives

I forgot to mention yesterday that Taylor Swift’s ‘Style’ was at #6 on the Billboard chart. That’s the third single from 1989 to hit the top ten. Probably not the last.

At #8 is Hozier’s ‘Take Me to Church,’ still hanging in there after all these weeks.

And at #9 is ‘Time of Our Lives’ by Pitbull and Ne-Yo.

When I first read the title of this song, I just assumed it would heavily sample ‘The Time of Our Lives’ from Dirty Dancing. Having now heard the song, I think that would have been an improvement.

Every Pitbull song sounds pretty much the same to me. The exception is ‘Timber,’ a genre mashup I really like. This one is enjoyable enough.

I heard that both political parties are trying to land this song for the upcoming campaign. I can’t really picture Hillary or Jeb Bush walking onstage to this without looking very old.

[Pre-Chorus: Ne-Yo]
I know my rent was gon’ be late bout a week ago
I worked my ass off, but I still can’t pay it though
But I just got just enough
To get off in this club
Have me a good time, before my time is up
Hey, let’s get it now

[Chorus: Ne-Yo]
Oooh!! I want the time of my life
Oh baby ooh give me the time of my life
Let’s get it now

[Verse 1: Pitbull]
Mr. Worldwide
Ne-yo
This is the last $20 I got
But I’mma have a good time ballin’ or out
Tell the bartender, line up some shots
Cause I’mma get loose tonight
She’s on fire, she’s so hot
I’m no liar, she burn up the spot
Look like Mariah, I took another shot
Told her drop, drop, drop, drop it like it’s hot
Dirty talk, dirty dance
She a freaky girl and I’m a freaky man
She on the rebound, broke up with her ex
And I’m like Rodman, ready on deck
I told her I wanna ride out, and she said yes
We didn’t go to church, but I got blessed

[Pre-Chorus] + [Chorus]

[Verse 2: Pitbull]
Tonight I’mma lose my mind
Better get yours cause I’m gonna get mine
Party every night, like my last
Mommy know the drill, shake that ass
Go ahead baby let me see what you got
You know you got the biggest booty in this spot
And I just wanna see that thing drawwwwp
From the back to the front to the top
You know me I’m off in the cut
Always like a squirrel, looking for a nut
This isn’t for show I’m not talking ’bout luck
I’m not talking ’bout love, I’m talking ’bout lust
Now let’s get loose, have some fun
Forget about bills and the first of the month
It’s my night, your night, our night, let’s turn it up

[Pre-Hook] + [Hook]

[Bridge: Ne-Yo]
Everybody’s gone through something
(Everybody’s gone through something)
I said, everybody’s gone through something
(Everybody’s gone through something)
So you might as well you roll it up
Pour it up, drink it up, throw it up tonight
I said, everybody gone through something
(Everybody’s gone through something)
Said, everybody gone through something
(Everybody’s gone through something)
So you might as well you roll it up
Pour it up, drink it up, throw it up tonight

[Break: Pitbull]
This for everybody going through tough times
Believe me, been there, done that
But everyday above ground is a great day, remember that, Dale!

[Pre-Hook] + [Hook]

    Yeah, I think both parties should look elsewhere for their song, though it would be particularly amusing for the GOP to use it. I can see the TV cameras panning on the 99% older white crowd dancing to this.
