You may have heard the band Magic who last year wrote a song called “Rude” about asking a girl out on a date. Well the video below is a cover of the song with a rewrite of the words.
My favourite lines from the song include “Maybe a Christian but I would go to prison, I am not scared of doing hard time”, and “Get out of your momma’s basement go and get you a life. Son your 28, don’t you think its time”
Some of the lines in the song have had a few bad comments on Youtube. Especially the bit where it says to get a real job instead of selling burgers and fries. The songs creators Benji and Jenna responded by saying “
I think that’s where the dad in me would blow up a bit and even say some things that are irrational. Even though this song is a joke, I’d never want to have a laugh at someone else’s expense. With the burgers and fries line, I was more thinking of the whole picture of a 28-year-old dude living in his mom and dad’s basement and not just taking a crack at a fast food worker.
The whole song is just trying to channel a dad’s gut response to a hypothetical dude telling him he’s marrying the man’s daughter regardless of what the dad thinks. When it’s all said and done, I hope my daughter (when that day comes) marries a man who loves her regardless of his job, race, and income.”
I think it can be taken in jest and the song is pretty awesome. Listen for yourself and hit SHARE if you enjoyed it too.
