Women of the world

When I was down in Provo last weekend I took Savvy out with me to run some errands. I had my booty-shakin' CD on in the car. The song "Hung Up" by Madonna came on and after a minute or two of listening quietly, Savvy spoke up.

Savvy: What is this song?

Me: It's called 'Hung Up.' It's by a lady named Madonna.

Savvy: Oh.

Me: Do you like it?

Savvy: Yes, I do.

pause

Savvy: [deep, deep sigh] Girls always sing this song . . .

As if she'd taken the weight of the collective females who have lived, ever, on her tiny little shoulders.

Me: Yes. Yes they do.

Savvy: I'm too young to sing this song yet.

Me: I very much hope that's true.

Because so help me if that James has already broken her heart and made her understand The Cross We Women Bear then he and I are gonna have words. Also I might just break all his Star Wars toys. On purpose.

I was going to post the music video up here but after watching it I think maybe I'm not going to. Some of the dancing is great, though, even if you do see more of Madonna's admittedly toned-as-if-by-witchcraft rear than you planned on a Monday morning. You can go see it here if you want.

So I like the music video, her nail polish especially. If Savannah grows up to be a woman with questionable moral fiber I will know who to blame now.

The "material girl" is many things to many people. "Lady" is not one of them.

Remember the "Dirty Dancing" movie!

What else is on the booty shaking CD?

Afer watching that video (the dancing was excellent, but yes, what was with all the rear end shots?) I have deciced that Madonna must have moved across the pound because she found the fountain of youth over there--that woman looks younger and skinnier each time I see her!

what album is that song on?

LOL, I really got a kick out of the comment "I'm too young to sing this song" -- classic.

Don't break the toys...ship 'em to me to play with, ok?

I thought it was a good music video. The only thing I didn't like was that Madonna was in it so much- especially her pasty rear. yek.

Fun blog. I've enjoyed perusing.

Your niece is wise beyond her years. Maybe that will save her some heartache in the future. Plus, she has her wise Auntie Nem to guide her!

The song is from the album True Confessions on a Dance Floor (2005). It's a fun dance album and it's probably one of Madonna's best. My two other favorite songs on it are I'm Sorry and I Love New York.

I guess you're never too young to be jaded about love.
