The Madonna Timeline: Song #28 – ‘Give It 2 Me’ – Summer 2008

{Note: The Madonna Timeline is an ongoing feature, where I put the iPod on shuffle, and write a little anecdote on whatever was going on in my life when that Madonna song was released and/or came to prominence in my mind.}

There are some Madonna songs that are so fun and catchy they stand alone, not needful of any backstory, (and certainly not crying out for my own silly attachment to it). Being that I don’t have any distinctive memory attached to it, we’re going to let ‘Give It 2 Me’ run its own bass-pumping course.

What are you waiting for?
Nobody’s gonna show you how.
Why wait for someone else to do what you can do right now?
Got no boundaries and no limits,
If there’s excitement put me in it,
If it’s against the law arrest me,
If you can handle it undress me. 

Sometimes a good Madonna song is all you need to dance in front of a mirror, in your underwear, throwing a party for one and having the time of your life.

[Insert cute picture of me dancing in my underwear in front of the mirror if it were possible to take a picture of myself while dancing in front of a mirror and looking cute in my underwear.]

Don’t stop me now
Don’t need to catch my breath
I can go on and on and on…
When the lights go down
And there’s no one left
I can go on and on and on…
Give it 2 me!
Yeah!
No one’s gonna show me how.
Give it 2 me!
Yeah!
No one’s gonna stop me now.

A brief interruption: How cool is it that Pharrell Williams features his gorgeous purple Hermes Birkin in the original video?

They say that a good thing never lasts and that it has to fall
Those are the people that did not amount to much at all.
Give me a bassline,
I’ll shake it,
Give me a record,
I’ll break it.
There’s no beginning, and no ending,
Give me a chance to go and I’ll take it…
Get stupid
Get stupid
Get stupid
Don’t stop me…                

 

Don’t stop me now
Don’t need to catch my breath
I can go on and on and on…
When the lights go down
And there’s no one left
I can go on and on and on…
Give it 2 me!
Yeah!
No one’s gonna show me how.
Give it 2 me!
Yeah!
No one’s gonna stop me now.
 
You’re only here to win, get what they say,
You’re only here to win, get what they do
They’d do it too, if they were you,
You’ve done it all before, ain’t nothing new.
