Song of the Day #3,663: ‘Let ‘Em Talk’ – Kesha

Before I intervened with some Frank Sinatra, this was the randomly dialed-up song slated for my father’s 75th birthday. Not exactly the best fit.

On the other hand, a pop-rock anthem by Kesha (featuring Eagles of Death Metal) encouraging people to ignore criticism and shine on through the negativity is appropriate on any day, including a milestone birthday.

So carry on, Kesha! We will all “shake that ass” in celebration.

[Verse 1]
You, you got your own opinions
But baby, I don’t even need to hear ’em
It used to hurt me, used to bring me down
Do your worst, ’cause nothing’s gonna stop me now

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t let those losers take your magic, baby, yeah

[Chorus]
Shake that ass, don’t care if they talk about it
Fuck all that, haters, just forget about ’em
(Woah) Just let ’em talk about it
(Woah) Just let ’em talk about it
Do your thing, don’t care if we make ’em jealous
We’re the kings, life is just our party palace
(Woah) Just let ’em talk about it
(Woah) Just let ’em talk, just let ’em talk

[Verse 2]
Do whatever makes you happy
And screw everything else if you ask me, hey yeah
‘Cause life is short and we only got one shot
So let’s go balls-out, give it everything we got

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t let those losers take your magic, baby, yeah

[Chorus]
Shake that ass, don’t care if they talk about it
Fuck all that, haters, just forget about ’em
(Woah) Just let ’em talk about it
(Woah) Just let ’em talk about it
Do your thing, don’t care if we make ’em jealous
We’re the kings, life is just our party palace
(Woah) Just let ’em talk about it
(Woah) Just let ’em talk, just let ’em talk

[Post-Chorus]
Let ’em talk about it, let ’em talk about it, let ’em talk
Let them talk, just let ’em talk, just let ’em
Let ’em talk about it, let ’em talk about it, let ’em talk
Let them talk

[Bridge]
Boys and girls, everybody talks about you
Loves and hates, they don’t really know about you
I’ve decided all the haters everywhere can suck my dick
Un, deux, trois, four

[Chorus]
Shake that ass, don’t care if they talk about it
Fuck all that, haters, just forget about ’em
(Woah) Just let ’em talk about it
(Woah) Just let ’em talk about it
Do your thing, don’t care if we make ’em jealous
We’re the kings, life is just our party palace
(Woah) Just let ’em talk about it
(Woah) Just let ’em talk, just let ’em talk

[Post-Chorus]
Let ’em talk about it, let ’em talk about it, let ’em talk
Let them talk, just let ’em talk, just let ’em
Let ’em talk about it, let ’em talk about it, let ’em talk
Let them talk, just let ’em talk, just let ’em
Let ’em talk about it, let ’em talk about it, let ’em talk
Let them talk, just let ’em talk, just let ’em
Let ’em talk about it, let ’em talk about it, let ’em talk
Let them talk

    LMAO! I think this would have been entirely appropriate for your dad’s 75th birthday. Shake that ass, Doug!
