"Dynamite" as written by Bonnie Leigh Mckee, Martin Max, Lukasz Gottwald, Benjamin Levin and Taio Cruz....
I came to dance-dance-dance-dance (Yeah)
I hit the floor 'cause that's my plans plans plans plans (Yeah)
I'm wearing all my favorite brands brands brands brands (Yeah)
Give me some space for both my hands hands hands hands
Yeah yeah 'cause it goes on and on and on
And it goes on and on and on yeah

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes,
Saying ayeoh, gotta let go
I wanna celebrate and live my life,
Saying ay-oh, baby let's go
'Cause we gon' rock this club,
We gon' go all night,
We gon' light it up,
Like it's dynamite
'Cause I told you once,
Now I told you twice,
We gon' light it up,
Like it's dynamite

I came to move move move move,
Get out the way of me and my crew crew crew crew, (Yea)
I'm in the club so I'm gonna do do do do, (Yea)
Just what the fuck came here to do do do do,
Yeah yeah 'cause it goes on and on and on
And it goes on and on and on yeah

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes,
Saying ay-oh, gotta let go
I wanna celebrate and live my life,
Saying ay-oh, baby let's go
'Cause we gon rock this club,
We gon' go all night,
We gon' light it up,
Like it's dynamite
'Cause I told you once,
Now I told you twice,
We gon' light it up,
Like it's dynamite

I'm gonna take it all I,
I'm gonna be the last one standing,
Higher overall I,
I'm gonna be the last one landing 'cause I, I, I
Believe it, and I, I, I
I just want it all, I just want it all,
I'm gonna put my hands in the air, hands in the air
Put your hands in the air

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes,
Saying ay-oh, gotta let go
I wanna celebrate and live my life,
Saying ay-oh, baby let's go
'Cause we gon rock this club,
We gon' go all night,
We gon' light it up,
Like it's dynamite
'Cause I told you once,
Now I told you twice,
We gon' light it up,
Like it's dynamite

    My OpinionI've been into all sorts of music throughout the years and at the moment I'm in the stage where I actually like many different genres, but mostly electronic music like dubstep, dnb, electro progressive house, acid jazz etc... For some reason, though, when I go to a mainstream and get shitfaced with my best mates, I understand why most people like songs like this (Dynamite) - it's catchy, easy to follow, it makes a person want to stand up and dance, and sing and smile and be happy in general.

    Less hate, more love.

    My OpinionI think you guys are giving this song way more flak than it deserves.

    Dynamite doesn't aim to be the next anthem of the oppressed youth, nor is it supposed to be some sort of deep revelatory exploratin of the human psyche. It doesn't even aim to be groundbreaking, or original, or any of those other buzzwords that some of you seem to love oh-so-much.

    What Dynamite sets out to be (and indeed, succeeds in being) is an unapologetically catchy and danceable summer party song (look at when it was released as a single- May). And in my opinion, it pulls that role off with aplomb.

    My OpinionTo BackToREalityBitch...
    You are clearly mentally handicapped.
    There is an option to specify what kind of comment you are leaving.
    One of the choices is "opinion" so it clearly is for sharing opinions.
    And using vulgarity just makes you look even more ignorant.
    Hmm, and isn't it contradictory that you shared no meaning to the song and just gave your opinion?
    If anyone should "gtfo" as you put it, it should be you for your ignorance and hatred.
    So please, BackToRealityBitch, please "gtfo" of my universe, you're really mucking the place up for the rest of us.

    Anyway, this song is apparently describing the mood of the club scene saying that sometimes you just want to let go and dance without thinking about anything.

    Now if this were written by someone with some kind of versatility in music, I would like this; however, Taio Cruz writes ONLY about unintelligent babble that inspires sheep-like activity and stupidity. Terrible artist in my opinion, the beat or rhythm aren't even fresh, they're old and recycled. He is like a call back to disco (which died for a reason) which was completely unintelligent and a waste of vinyl.

    I'm not saying that he should die or anything, but maybe he should pick a job he's more suited for, such as cashier at Burger King where he can use his sweet voice and repeat mindless babble that actually might be useful.
    He certainly doesn't deserve the popularity he got.

    General CommentGreat song...so filled with energy. Love being "the last one standing" on the dance floor. Nothing is more uplifting than dancing to fun music; feeling the energy of the crowd; and laughing with friends and new acquaintances. Just luv upbeat tunes!

    Song ComparisonThis song's chorus has a lot of parts that are similar to Avril Lavigne's song "Freak Out". That's got the "hands in the air" to the "let go" to the "live my life" and everything. Could easily just be chance, but I feel like the writers of the two songs at least had quite a bit of the same stuff in mind.
