Hello my sweethearts! How is your weekend? Reading what our dear friend, Ellington, said yesterday, I realized I missed Missy Elliott. And as oldfashioned as I may sound like, Missy Elliott’s Get Ur Freak On is one of the best songs of all time in my ears!
Do you know this was launched in 2001? Can you believe all that time has passed? I keep on being amazed by how time flies and we hardly feel a thing!
Get Ur Freak On was written by Missy and Timbaland and was released on Missy Elliott’s Miss E… So Addictive album. Based on a Punjabi rhythm, Get Ur Freak On was pretty popular at the time and continues to prove its musical value throughout the years (I still listen to it and feel the urge to stand up and dance).
What I love the most about the song is the message. Like you said, many musical pieces and associated videos try to send varied messages. Not always perfect or positive. Missy’s Get Ur Freak On is hardly unidirectional. You can get your freak on even when you drive you car or ride your bike. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I love a good motivational rhythm, a catchy, mobilizing tune.
