While this song didnt exactly make it to the top of the charts, it’s one we’ve all heard and remember. Well, most of us have heard it.
Released in 2001, the official music video is made completely of people listening to the music and commenting on it. It’s funny and interesting to watch their reactions as you listen, and definitely an “out there” approach to a music video.
Essentially the song is about an ideal fantasy woman. There’s debate online over whether this is someone who’s been partying all her life and is now maturing and getting ready to settle down, or whether it’s someone who’s daring enough to wear a short skirt, but modest enough to wear a long jacket, or someone who’s working and maturing but still know’s how to have fun (get up early, stay up late). Sort of like a woman with two sides. There’s also debate as to whether it’s about a prostitute (someone wearing a long jacket and short skirt looks like she’s naked underneath).
Cake has many songs, and while this isnt the most popular it’s probably the most well known and quoted.
