Monday Musings

What's with Mick Jagger lately?
Not Mick himself, but other song writers,
writing about Mick Jagger. Weird.

I first noticed this in 2009's MUSH
(aka Mandatory Ubiquitous Summer Hit) Tik Tok by Ke$ha.

And now, the dudes are lining up
'Cause they hear we got swagger
But we kick em to the curb
Unless they look like Mick Jagger

I remember thinking....
"Hey Ke$ha. You DO know what Mick Jagger looks like...right?
No? Here's the object of your desire..."

I know, I know....That's not fair! Post a picture of Mick in his PRIME!

Yeah...still not good.

But struck again!
Imagine the humiliation of copying lyrics from the likes of Ke$ha...
her name has a dollar sign in it.

From The Time by Black Eyed Peas

All-all these girls, they like my swagger
They callin’ me Mick Jagger
I be rollin’ like a Stone
Jet-setter, jet-lagger

Is it possible they used it more stupidly than Ke$ha? Yep.

And NOW...the most baffling of all.
An entire song about Mick Jagger by Adam Levine
(of Maroon 5 and "super-hot guy" fame)

Don't need to try to control you
Look into my eyes and I'll own you
With them moves like jagger
I've got the moves like jagger
I've got the moves like jagger

I'm just sayin'. It's a weird trend.

Weird indeed. The Adam Levine rendition reminded me of Dracula .. 'look into my eyes' .. Poor Mick .. he really has been kicked to the curb by the looks of him (LOL)

As a kid, I loved Paul McCartney.

still don't! Gross...Lol.
