"Sneakernight" as written by Jonathan Rotem and Silya Nymoen....
Put your sneakers on
Put your sneakers on,
We're goin' dancin' all night long

I got somewhere to be (where to be, where to be)
I want you to come with me (come with me)
See, I've put my sneakers on
'Cause I'm gonna keep dancin'
After they all go home

So are you ready?
Did you eat?
Do you have the energy?
Are you reloaded?
Are you able to stay on your feet?
Don't want you passing out
After a couple o' hours of beats
We're gonna keep going, and going, and going
Yeah, 'cause

Basically what we're gonna do is dance
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
It will come easily when you hear the beat (oh)
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
All you gotta do is take a chance
Yeah that's right, it's sneaker night

So now they're closing
(Close it up, shut it down, go home now)
But this is far from the end
(Second round, ding, it's about to begin)
'Cause I've got comfortable footwear
The weather is nice
So let's take it outside
This needs some hand claps
And the beat-box, and it's all right

Basically what we're gonna do is dance
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
It will come easily when you hear the beat (oh)
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
All you gotta do is take a chance
Yeah that's right, it's sneaker night

When the sun goes down (sun goes down)
Oh we wake up (we wake up)
A good nights sleep
Ha! No need!
No problem staying awake (no, no)
When the beat is like an earthquake
And we're unstoppable
We're uncontrollable
Just admit it
You can't stop it
It's addictive
Yeah yeah yeah!

Basically what we're gonna do is dance
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
Yeah that's right, it's sneaker night

Basically what we're gonna do is dance
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
It will come easily when you hear the beat (oh)
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
Basically what we're gonna do is dance
All you gotta do is take a chance
Yeah that's right, it's sneaker night

Oh, put your sneakers on
Oh, let's go all night long

    General CommentWhen I first heard it...I was like whoa. Her singing is def weird and different that her song "baby, come back" and her others. No offense I thought she was trying to sound more black and put more soul in her singing but it made her sound kinda retarded. Yeah, after a few times of listening to it, it actually became quite catchy and stuck in my head. The "basically what we're gonna do is dance" part is rly catchy. But yeah, as for the meaning, we all just wanna put our sneakers on one night and start dancing. Pretty true. It's a fun song though. Not meant to be taken seriously, of course.

    General CommentPeople are always dissing this song. It isn't really fair because Vanessa had to sing it to promote the Eco Red shoes.
    This song it actually good, it's refreshing from all those songs about heart-break, boys and stuff. Singing about shoes, dancing and fun is what most girls would like, it's like taking a break from pain and boys.
    A lot think that 'basically what we're gonna do is dance' is annoying because of it's repetitiveness, but I think it's to emphasise the point of what their doing is simple and easy.
    Vanessa also state that for her second album, she wanted to try out different types of songs to sing. Personally, I think that's a great experience for her, singing differnt types of songs to find out her sound.

    My point is, stop trashing her and her songs just because of her past.

    General CommentThis is quite catchy. Much better than her old stuff, I think. Obviously the meaning is uh, rather straight forward. (But very relate-er,able)
