Tuesday Tunes: Magic!, “Rude”

Tagged: , , , , ,

“Rude,” the latest single by the band Magic! (yes, there’s an exclamation point at the end), is an ode to forbidden love that a lot of dads with daughters probably won’t appreciate. However, as a dad with a daughter, the tune’s reggae tinged beats are catchy enough that you might actually consider letting your daughter marry the lead singer of a struggling garage band. OK, maybe not but it is the perfect song for a beach bar and will be played many times at my favorite sand bar this summer.

Arjanwrites.com had this to say about the single: “… a deliciously hooky brew of Carribean-flavored and reggae-tinged feel-good pop ….”

“Saturday morning jumped out of bed and put on my best suit
Got in my car and raced like a jet, all the way to you
Knocked on your door with heart in my hand
To ask you a question
Cause I know that you’re an old fashioned man yeah yeah

Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life? say yes, say yes
Cause I need to know
You say I’ll never get your blessing till the day I die
Tough luck my friend but the answer is no!

Why you gotta be so rude?
Don’t you know I’m human too
Why you gotta be so rude
I’m gonna marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Yeah no matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we’ll be a family

Why you gotta be so rude

I hate to do this, you leave no choice
I can’t live without her
Love me or hate me we will be boys
Standing at that alter
Or we will run away
To another galaxy you know
You know she’s in love with me
She will go anywhere I go

Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life? say yes, say yes
Cause I need to know
You say I’ll never get your blessing till the day I die
Tough luck my friend cause the answer’s still no!

Why you gotta be so rude?
Don’t you know I’m human too
Why you gotta be so rude
I’m gonna marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Yeah no matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we’ll be a family

Why you gotta be so rude?

Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Yeah no matter what you say

Why you gotta be so rude?
Why you gotta be so rude?”
