Famous - Charli XCX



The Experience: Charli XCX's catchy new dance mix also holds a hidden challenge to listeners. What are we willing to do to be famous? Is this fame really what we are after at the end of the day?


Music video: Just the album art audio for now...


The Meaning: Famous is all about trying to get attention, even when we are excluded by everyone else. Weren't invited but we're feeling so outrageous, just like we're famous. Down deep Charli's got a point. We all need the support and affirmation of others. The question though is will getting high blown up like balloons (taking heroine), purple glitter (smoking marujana), Lucy in the sky of diamonds (LSD) and acting reckless we're falling down the stairs, we act so shameless really win her the kind of attention she's really looking for?

Ask yourself: Do I look for attention in the right ways and places?


LYRICS:

Bored on Friday night
Spinning 'round just like I'm hypnotised, oh
Need some neon lights
Wanna feel like I'm electrified, so help me out

Get your boyfriend's car
Come and pick me up, oh
Let's take it for a ride
What trouble can we find?

One night, and we're gonna come and crash the party
Weren't invited but we're feeling so outrageous
Just like we're famous
Got one night, and we're gonna come and get it started
Now we're falling down the stairs
We act so shameless
Come on let's lose control!

One night, and we're gonna come and crash the party
Weren't invited but we're feeling so outrageous
Just like we're famous
Got one night, and we're gonna come and get it started
Now we're falling down the stairs
We act so shameless
Just like we're famous

Ah ah ah oh oh
Oh ah ah ah oh oh oh
Ah ah ah oh oh
Just like we're famous

Blown up like balloons
Purple glitter flying through the air, oh
Sweat drips from the roof
And you know we're Lucy in the sky of diamonds

Music playing loud
Tripping through the crowd, oh
Put your sunglasses on
Don't care if we look dumb

One night, and we're gonna come and crash the party
Weren't invited but we're feeling so outrageous
Just like we're famous
Got one night, and we're gonna come and get it started
Now we're falling down the stairs
We act so shameless
Come on let's lose control!

One night, and we're gonna come and crash the party
Weren't invited but we're feeling so outrageous
Just like we're famous
Got one night, and we're gonna come and get it started
Now we're falling down the stairs
We act so shameless
Just like we're famous

Ah ah ah oh oh
Oh ah ah ah oh oh oh
Ah ah ah oh oh
Just like we're famous

Ah ah ah oh oh
Oh ah ah ah oh oh oh
Ah ah ah oh oh
Just like we're famous

One night, and we're gonna come and crash the party
Weren't invited but we're feeling so outrageous
Just like we're famous
Got one night, and we're gonna come and get it started
Now we're falling down the stairs
We act so shameless
Just like we're famous

Ah ah ah oh oh
Oh ah ah ah oh oh oh
Ah ah ah oh oh
Just like we're famous

Ah ah ah oh oh
Oh ah ah ah oh oh oh
Ah ah ah oh oh
Just like we're famous
