I love this part right here



This is my current favourite song ... the one I've been pumping on constant repeat for the past three days and nights now (i.e. no other song has come out of my speakers since Wednesday). It has pumped my body and fueled my energy over the past few days and nights as I've cleaned, cleared, dusted, wiped and charged my lightness, clarity, direction, focus and determination.

Some may scoff at the song and the video because it's "the Pussycat Dolls" and they're seemingly all about glamour, explicit posing and 'poppy' factory music. I can't say I really know their other music, but I've always liked the original version of this song - the voice, the melody and how it all comes together. Whenever it comes on the radio, I turn it up. I even find the lyrics aren't too bad.

It is a 'break-up' song ... but listening beyond that specific context, it also carries a wider message. I guess it's how you look at it. I see it 'beyond the surface' as being aware at a point in time of something important that needs to be done, not being able to put it aside or 'linger' any more in old energy and finding the determination to make the new happen.

As she says at the end: "I gotta do it."
