SHAKIRA HA VUELTO! shakira’s back! it’s all about comebacks at the minute it seems and next on the docket is the very bendy shakira with a song about being a she wolf. it is brilliant. end of.
as a quick sidenote i remember seeing a show on mtv where some girl got to recreate one of shakira’s music videos and professed to be her biggest fan. i remember it because the girl was really annoying and despite having a rather plain american accent, insisted on tapping the r in shakira. it was incredibly irritating.
anyway, here is the video. it is fantastic in a very cheesy 1980s way. i adore it.
amazing, right? i love all the ah-oooh’s they’re fantastic. this song also has some of the best lyrics in recent memory.
i’ve been devoting myself to you monday to monday and friday to friday
not getting enough retribution or decent incentives to keep me at it
i’m starting to feel just a little abused like a coffee machine in an office
so i’m gonna go somewhere cozy to get me a lover and tell you about it
sitting across a bar, staring right at her prey
it’s going well so far, she’s gonna get her way
nocturnal creatures are not so prudent
the moon’s my teacher and i’m her student
lycanthropy = the magical ability to assume the form and characteristics of a wolf.
shakira’s she wolf = bloody brilliant
