Doing It - Charli XCX ft. Rita Ora




The Experience: Want you to know how I miss ya. And now I got you right by my side, yeah, I got you right by my side... Charli XCX and Rita Ora produce a dance anthem that sings to love forevermore.



Music video: Doing It starts off with a young Rita Ora playing in her sandbox, dreaming... the very same things that an adult Rita Ora and Charli XCX do in the music video (stickups, car chases, and rowdy parties). The music video looks to take the emphasis off sex - doing it - and broaden the songs appeal towards friendship. Not an unqualified success, since robbery and strippers occupy a big part of that friendship.

The Meaning of Doing It: It's definitely something you could dance all night too. And the idea - love that keeps you together united forevermore especially after it's been a long time - is something everyone wants. But there is a flaw in Charli XCX's recipe. Sex - doing it - isn't enough to make love last forever, no matter how awesome it gets. If you want to make forevermore work, you need more than sex.

Ask yourself: Do you base your relationships exclusively on sex?

LYRICS:

[1995. What is it? I don't know but- ]

We're staying all night
We never slow down
I think we better do it like we're doing it now
It's been a long time
Since we've been around
So come on, let's keep doing it like we're doing it
Doing it like we're doing it

Waited so long just to be here
And now we're bringing this back to life, yeah, we're bringing this back to life
Want you to know how I miss ya
And now I got you right by my side, yeah, I got you right by my side

Locked inside my veins you're in my blood, in my blood
And we united forevermore

We're staying all night
We never slow down
I think we better do it like we're doing it now
It's been a long time
Since we've been around
So come on, let's keep doing it like we're doing it
Doing it like we're doing it now

Keep doing it like we're doing it
Doing it like we're doing it

Friends like a team in a circle
We're together we're so alive, yeah, together we're so alive
Joy like a jewel let it sparkle
Know that I got your back for life, yeah, I got your back for life

Locked inside my veins you're in my blood, in my blood
And we united forevermore

We're staying all night
We never slow down
I think we better do it like we're doing it now
It's been a long time
Since we've been around
So come on, let's keep doing it like we're doing it
Doing it like we're doing it now

Keep doing it like we're doing it
Doing it like we're doing it now

Keep doing it like we're doing it
Doing it like we're doing it

All night long
We dancing to this song
We doing it, we going on and on, on and on
All night long
We dancing to this song
We doing it, we going on and on, on and on

We're staying all night
We never slow down
I think we better do it like we're doing it now
It's been a long time
Since we've been around
So come on, let's keep doing it like we're doing it
Doing it like we're doing it now

(All night long
We dancing to this song)

Keep doing it like we're doing it
Doing it like we're doing it now

(All night long
We dancing to this song)

Keep doing it like we're doing it
Doing it like we're doing it now

We're staying all night
We never slow down
I think we better do it like we're doing it now
It's been a long time
Since we've been around
So come on, let's keep doing it like we're doing it
Doing it like we're doing it now
