Analysis of the song by Click Five.
Just the Girl
What is a girl for a boy nowadays? Is she some kind of pinkish, glamorous supermodel or shy nerd that hardly ever looks at boys? The song “Just the Girl” by Click Five gives just the right answer. Action takes place in composition class while the teacher tries to explain why reading Hemingway’s novels is so important. Then, all of a sudden, there comes a helicopter with a band on it. Consequently, it lands on the top of the building, and they start rock-n-rolling. This song is about relationships, but in its video clip version there is nothing about love, only partying. Although it does not contain any complicated vocabulary in its lyrics and does not try to build complex meaning of a girl’s world, all this song wants to describe is the kind of girls guys like. Read the lines of the chorus: “And the more she ignores me the more I adore her. What can I do? I’d do anything for her.” They make it understandable why sometimes boys could spend hours and money on someone who is not even looking over to their side. Its lyrics are so simple, but yet so true for present world. Any listener will clearly understand the lines of the lyrics. Take the following couple lines from the verse: “She laughs at my dreams, but I dream about her laughter. Strange as it seems, she’s the one I’m after.” Isn’t it obvious that we could blindly go after people who will never appreciate our dedicated hearts; and our care? Nonetheless, this song is not about sadness or broken hearts, it reveals the truth about modern day love.
The only thing that might bother a listener is why there is no happy end to the song. The singer still repeats the beginning lines: “She’s cold and she’s cruel, but she knows what she’s doing”, which means she stays unchanged, no matter how a guy reacts to her. The very last line makes the whole song look pessimistic. Besides that, the other lyrics in the song bring happiness to the soul of any boy. It is just doubtless that every boy has gone through this kind of relationship at some point in his life.
To conclude, this special song by Click Five has one of the best rock beats, incredible rhythm, and meaningful lyrics. These components altogether make me listen to it over and over. If a guy feels down that the girl of his dreams is responding to his actions or he is trying to win someone’s heart, listening to this song will cheer him up and make him forget about failures in him personal relations. Just as the band sings it: “She knocks me off my feet. And I can’t help myself. I don’t want anyone else”, a guy should never give up because in most cases it is only matter of time.
