Story about this misheard lyric by: Cody Finke

This was soon before the movie Flashdance came out, so I wondered if that's what inspired the song "Flashdance...What a Feeling" by Irene Cara!

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

The Repetitive Lyrics:
Oh Mickey you're so fine,
you're so fine
you blow my mind hey Mickey......
Why They're Repetitive:
This whole song is the same lyrics over and over again. I don't think Mickey thinks you're so fine, Toni -- he's probably sick of you singing his name over and over again!

Dirty Song Lyrics:

The Dirty Lyrics:
'So, come on and give it to me any way you can
any way you wanna' do it I'll take it like a man!'
Why They're Dirty:
When the song first came out I was always curious about what Ms. Basil meant when telling 'Mickey' 'give it to me anyway you can' 'I'll take it like a man!' That's when I realized she was insinuating anal sex.

"Mickey" was a surprise #1 hit from dancer and choreographer Toni Basil (helped to choreograph routines for David Bowie when Bowie came in concert in Los Angeles) in December 1982. Toni Basil almost didn't make it on the charts with the tune, her record company Chrysalis was at first hesitant to release, but they did and had a hit with it with it's cheerleading like lines. And the video, played plenty in the fall of 1982 on MTV, helped with Toni Basil going back to her high school roots as a cheerleader.
