Song of the Day #3,125: ‘Into You’ – Ariana Grande

ariana_grande_dangerous_womanAlthough Hillary Clinton’s expected coronation didn’t come to pass, 2016 was a great year for women musically, at least. Pretty much all of my favorite albums last year were recorded by women.

Among them was Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman, which included the hit title song as well as ‘Side By Side,’ today’s SOTD ‘Into You’ and ‘Be Alright.’ Those are the songs that hit radio, but the album is solid start to finish.

Grande’s career has taken off since her early days as Cat on Nickelodeon’s Victorious. The Boca Raton native is now the only performer to land a lead-off single on Billboard’s top ten from each of her first three albums.

I’d like to see her do some more acting — she seems like a perfect fit for a modern romantic comedy, and could provide the credits song to boot.

[Verse 1]
I’m so into you, I can barely breathe
And all I wanna do is to fall in deep
But close ain’t close enough, ’til we cross the line, hey yeah
So name a game to play, and I’ll roll the dice, hey

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh baby, look what you started
The temperature’s rising in here
Is this gonna happen?
Been waiting and waiting for you to make a move
Before I make a move

[Chorus]
So baby come light me up, and maybe I’ll let you on it
A little bit dangerous, but baby that’s how I want it
A little less conversation, and a little more touch my body
’cause I’m so into you, into you, into you

Got everyone watchin’ us, so baby let’s keep this secret
A little bit scandalous, but baby don’t let them see it
A little less conversation, and a little more touch my body
’cause I’m so into you, into you, into you, oh yeah

[Verse 2]
This could take some time, hey
Made too many mistakes
Better get this right, right, baby

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh baby, look what you started
The temperature’s rising in here
Is this gonna happen?
Been waiting and waiting for you to make a move
Before I make a move

[Chorus]
So baby come light me up, and maybe I’ll let you on it
A little bit dangerous, but baby that’s how I want it
A little less conversation and a, little more touch my body
’cause I’m so into you, into you, into you

Got everyone watchin’ us, so baby, let’s keep this secret
A little bit scandalous, but baby don’t let them see it
A little less conversation and a, little more touch my body
’cause I’m so into you, into you, into you, oh yeah
(’cause I’m so into you)

[Bridge]
Tell me what you came here for
’cause I can’t, I can’t wait no more
I’m on the edge with no control
And I need, I need you to know
You to know, oh

[Chorus]
So baby come light me up, and maybe I’ll let you on it
A little bit dangerous, but baby that’s how I want it
A little less conversation and a, little more touch my body
’cause I’m so into you, into you, into you

Got everyone watchin’ us, so baby let’s keep this secret
A little bit scandalous, but baby don’t let them see it
A little less conversation and a, little more touch my body
’cause I’m so into you, into you, into you

[Outro]
So come light me up
So come light me up, my baby
Little dangerous
A little dangerous, my boy
A little less conversation and a, little more touch my body
’cause I’m so into you, into you, into you

    I assume she isn’t really writing these songs, though she may be contributing, so those writers deserve much credit, but she does know how to deliver and I find myself enjoying what I hear on the radio.

    She was a writer on many of the songs on this album, so she does deserve some credit there too. 🙂
