Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji

In 1982, the first single from 'Word of Mouth' "Mickey" was internationally her greatest hits to date. With the feminine theme, it featured on many lists of the greatest rock songs of all time. When "Mickey" was success, she was 38 years old at the time because she was born in 1943 and now she was 73 years old when I wrote this story on 3 February 2017. Although she was an academic and has entered the golden age, but she deliberately wrote this song as an experience that she still shows her creativity in entertainment. Of course, her talent in the dancing actually she had done for a long time in her teenage year. Moreover, cheerleader is the main theme of this song with dance music style and a touch of rock music. After the second single from that album "Nobody" unfortunately not success like "Mickey", she decided to move to a better profession choreographer. Academic musicians was not just only herself, but also Grace Slick of the pop rock/soft rock outfit Starship previously was a member of folk rock/psychedelic rock band Jefferson Airplane. Since a song that she wrote together with her band was success internationally, rock historians believe that Grace Slick become the next academic musicians and the oldest musician ever in the world who are still active until now.

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!

U (undies) V (veal) W (wieners)

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"'Mickey'"
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.

Comments:
"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.
