It doesn't even matter what I'm trying to say, 'cause by this point in the song you're just dancing anyway

Like a drag queen's acid nightmare

Yvonne Strahovski, of Chuck fame, lampoons Katy Perry, Ke$ha, and Gaga in Three Pop Stars, One Song. Somewhat NSFW-ish, but the lyrics are quite witty and the tune is ear-worm-y. [SLCH]

Yeh Hum Naheen

We have lost on the way the lesson of living together, We are now even scared of each other. They are others whose faces are on your hands, Your hurts are a deep sea -- our wounds are deep. The stories that are being spread in our names are lies, This is not us.
Words of a Pakistani pop song Yeh Hum Naheen [This is not us] hitting the charts, attempting to spread the message that all muslims are not terrorists, story via Salon. "Produced and written by a British Muslim, Waseem Mahmood, at the request of his two sons, "Yeh Hum Naheen" offers a welcome counterpoint to the images of troops storming the Red Mosque, or fundamentalist mullahs preaching jihad. But the key to the song's success lies neither in its production values or deft depictions of average Pakistanis going about their daily lives, but in its heartfelt expression of pain. "
