No, Beyonce or J.Lo. did not make this song, nor is it in yo face sexual. Nope, just good old fashioned fun and dance. And it's catchy, whether this is a good thing, since it got it from its over simplistic nature, is a different story.

This could be the surprise song of the year, in a year full of surprises, because let's admit it, did anybody see this song becoming a national hit? I think it says something about the state of dance music. I mean, any top 10 hit is given a BPM, and sent to the clubs, and sometimes your radio. These songs are cheap shots at great music, and I take them as an insult. I mean, I can't tell whether we're supposed to dance or laugh at these "re-mixes."

"Shake It" is simple on the verses, which is typical of Metro Station, but they bring it on the chorus, and they bring it home in a big way. The chorus is catchy, fun, happy and it could start a new dance craze, if their was more of a dance to create.

So overall, the verses aren't that great, but the chorus is what makes the song. It might not be original, but it's fun. Here's to the continued success of "Shake It" and Metro Station. And remember, get your groove on and "Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake It!"

Recently I decided to download this song on my zune player after being captivated by the sound and savoring it. It turns out that the vocals are sung by Trace Cyrus (Miley Cyrus's older brother). Although Trace is only 19 years old he really sings this song in a very self confident and mature way. Admittedly this is a song that you may not want to expose to somebody that is under 13 because the song has sexual undertones to it. The reason why I say this is because the song still has appropriate language to it but he sings about being on the bed with someone and their clothes on the floor (to his credit creatively). He also suggests in the song how he will take someone home if he's not left at the front door. However what makes the song great is that he sings the song creatively, self confidently, and narratively. The reason why is say that he sings this narratively is because it sounds like he is telling a short story about charming someone he is interested in while making sure to combine the singing in seamlessly. I agree with the others that say this is a good workout song too because the music is really upbeat and sounds like something you can easily dance to in the club or a party. It was also featured on one of the reality tv shows I was watching on mtv one night that features Lauren Conrad. All in all if you are fine with songs that have a dance pop twist and you are curious to listen to how Trace Cyrus sounds then in my opinion you will like this song.

There's not much to look forward to in the way of lyrics with this song, but it's a good workout song and keeps me moving. Lyrics are repetitive, but it doesn't bother me because the song is short enough that I don't find myself thinking, "Guh, when is this song going to end???" Nothing offensive in the lyrics, either, btw.

Classic driving beat. Dance music style. Fun to listen to.
Strong electronic feel. Vocals were fun. it's about boy goes after girl. This will make you smile.

My first song my Metro Station and I'll definitely be searching out more of their work.

Found via the MP3 Downloads section in Amazon - top downloads. It was also recommended to me via their system. Good job.

I haven't heard any of Metro Station's other songs, but I like this one. I actually heard it first in a wedding proposal video posted on youtube and thought it was a great.

This song never fails to get me up and going in the morning or when I'm researching on the Internet. So glad I could finally get this song with an Amazon Credit!

This song is the same radio version I am used to hearing and I was looking for. This is not a live or concert version.
