Songs That Makes You Worry About The Future of Music- Jedward


"Your gonna see things differently. Look at her from my P.O.V. I'm gonna watch you watch me joyfully." 
-Jedward
Jedward is the kind of band where all you want to do when listening to their music is clutch your stomach in laughter. By the end of their painfully long album, I almost believed I felt stupider and yet at the same time, I kinda wanted to hear more. I chose to share that rather nice quote with you guys for it was from the last song on their album "Young Love" and believably the worst. The beat was clearly catchy and made you want to listen to it all day and do the same embarrassing dance move over and over again. I have nothing against a catchy chorus line but I do have a little trouble when the lyrics make you feel well... confused. In end, I came to the realization that the only way I could explain this was by putting my own comments to the song trying to make at least a little sense out of the lyrics. The Blue marks are the actual lyrics while the black ones are my comments. So here is my interpretation:

I'm gonna party hard,

Till the morning light,
Oh, oh,
I'm gonna get rocked up,
Cause a scene tonight,
Oh, oh
Clearly, this is a party scene where I guess the Jedward boys are having some fun. By getting "rocked up" I figure they are taking some sort of drug or drinking. By "Cause a scene tonight" my best guesses where that there was either going to be a fight or one of these twins would end of with a girl (or guy)
We can turn the camera round,
Put your eye to the lens,
This is where it got weird. I think by now, the guys have left this party and are now for some reason filming or are still at this party but for reasons I don't think anyone can understand, they are showing this person how to work a camera
Gonna give your best performance,
No offence
I figure this was some challenge but why would this be offensive? Maybe the first line was sarcastic as if they didn't believe this person could give their best performance....
You're gonna see things differently,
Look at it from my POV,
I'm gonna watch you watch me joyfully,
Oh, oh,
From my POV
Now we're at the chorus line. Maybe by looking at her others see something different but once one of these boys look at her they realize she has something more to her.
Cause girl I could chew you up like a bubblegum,
Oh, oh,
I'll make you pop, spit you out,
When I've had my fun,
Oh, oh
My best interpretation of this paragraph was that Jedward was leading her on but would soon leave her after they've had their fun.
Did you really think it over carefully?
This girl should really have thought it over carefully when she fell in love with these boys and they ditched her.
When you ran around and thought that you were me?
Huh? When did THAT happen?
You're gonna see things differently,
Look at it from my POV,
I'm gonna watch you watch me joyfully,
Oh, oh,
From my POV

You're gonna see things differently,
Look at it from my POV,
I'm gonna watch you watch me joyfully,
Oh, oh,
From my POV

Please don't hate me,
Is this some sort of weird apology?
But you can't break me,again.... HUH?
Just zoom in closer,
Tonight, tonight, tonight
Now I guess Jedward's friends are "zooming" in on this girl and seeing her from their P.O.V
You're gonna see things differently,
Look at it from my POV,
I'm gonna watch you watch me joyfully,
Oh, oh,
From my POV

You're gonna see things differently,
Look at it from my POV,
I'm gonna watch you watch me joyfully,
Oh, oh,
From my POV
