Life can be fun fun fun fun.

Just because it's not that funny doesn't mean it's totally serious.

Rebecca Black's latest (and first) opus, Friday, succinctly tells the tale of a young girl on the cusp of womanhood. Ms. Black uses the days of the week as a metaphor for maturity. Throughout the song, Rebecca makes sure to point out that Thursday precedes Friday, Saturday follows, and Sunday afterwards. Let's take this point-by-point:

Thursday - Thursday represents youth and excitement. As the day before Friday, Thursday is the first day of the week where hope begins to surface. The teenager is finally beginning to approach the end of a long and awkward period of bodily changes, hormonal surges, and - unless you're the kid in the back passenger seat of the Sebring - the first terrifying sexual experiences of their lives.

Friday - Maturity. Adulthood. Grown. We approach Friday with unlimited expectations and possibilities. Maybe you'll meet the love of your life at the mall, or maybe Kelly will at least let you feel her up at Matt's party. Friday is fraught with possiblities.

Saturday - Redemption. The ability to get back on the proverbial horse. When Friday (read: your life) doesn't pan out exactly as you expected it to, Saturday is there to offer you the gift of a second chance. Maybe you got kicked out of the mall for loitering and Kelly laughed in your face, but on Saturday you can try again.

Sunday - Fear. After mentioning Sunday's alignment, Rebecca remarks, "I don't want this weekend to end." Rebecca fears death. I'm sure the reader is thinking, "Duh... who doesn't fear death?" But think about when Rebecca mentions this fear: On Friday - the day that represents a persons' first foray into the world. Rebecca skillfully articulates the emotions of all young adults beginning their journey to independence.

This song gives me hope. There are other people who face the dilemma of not knowing where to sit. During the weekdays I panic at the choices. I get so depressed, and eventually my friends leave without me. But with this song, I now know that it gets better. Rebecca reassures me that I 'have it' and she has it and I know it! Life can be fun fun fun fun. Thank you Rebecca. You have changed my life in under 4 minutes.

Do you have trouble deciding where to sit? Front seat or back seat?
Do you find yourself wondering which day comes before or after Friday? Perhaps even which day comes after Saturday?
Do you like to say the word "Friday" so many times, viciously separating the two syllables every time, so that it sounds like you are saying "Fried Egg" instead?
Do you love the sound of autotune?
Do you watch Glee so much that you think you could be a character on the show?

This is the song for you.

Party on, Rebecca, party on...like only a 13-year-old can.

I tend to avoid mainstream pop music, especially the stuff aimed at tweenagers (Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, etc). But when I make an exception, it's for a very special song -- and one such song is Rebecca Black's "Friday."

Few songs in my life have touched me as deeply and powerfully as this one song. This stirring, symphonic melody rises with a chorus of "yeah-ah-ahs!", over a stretch of gritty synth and wild beats. Black's angelic, shimmering voice lulls you with her expansive vocal range until you barely notice the subtlety and brilliance of the lyrics.

Oh, the lyrics. In what other pop song could you hear dazzling symbolism like "I'm drivin', cruisin'/fast lanes, switching lanes"? In what other could you hear evocative poetry like "Yesterday was Thursday/Today is Friday"? In what other could you hear such a searing, scathing glimpse into the psyche of American's youth, such as "Gotta make my mind up/which seat can I take?"

Indeed, young genius -- which seat should you take? Clearly she is debating whether to embrace the predictable safety of suburban life (back seat) or the wild unfettered life of a true artist (front seat). IN NO OTHER SONG will you find such unabashed genius. I get woozy just thinking about it.

...

Okay, time to turn the sarcasm off. This song is every bit as bad as most people say it is -- a massive sonic hairball of ear-curling vocals, flaccid pop tunes and devastatingly vapid lyrics. Most tween pop is vapid, but this waves a banner with shining V-A-P-I-D letter emblazoned on it.

Honestly, Black's vocals are horrible -- flat and autotuned into a droning whine, until you just want to punch your speakers to make the yowls of "Fryyyyydaaaaayyy" stop coming out of them.

She cannot sing. This song is horrid. The lyrics are absolutely pointless, her vocals are autotuned to death, and the company that produced the song is terrible as well. Her mother PAID for this song, for her to become "famous", when in fact, Rebecca Black has been a target for YouTube users making parodies instead. Parodies that are actually BETTER than the original song. Do not buy this POS track. You'll be wasting sixty nine cents on a song that is not worth any money.
