This hit, that ice cold

Stylin', whilen, livin' it up in the city
Got Chucks on with Saint Laurent
Got kiss myself, I'm so pretty

Smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy

    My Interpretationafter I started looking deeper into these lyrics a month ago, certain lines started to stick out. 'uptown funk you up' for example. this may be too deep, but ever wonder what 'don't believe me, just watch.' means? it's a threat. this song is about rape.

    General CommentI use the lyrics of American songs to help my ESL students learn slang. In this song, there are lots of references I don't understand. I've tried to find explanations, but nothing. Maybe you can help.

    Is it This hit or thi shit?

    This hit
    That ice cold
    Michelle Pfeiffer
    That white gold
    This one, for them hood girls
    Them good girls
    Straight masterpieces

    Chucks- Converse all stars
    Skippy - smooth peanut butter

    Does in the spot mean we are at a happening place?

    General CommentThis hit - the song is going to be a hit
    That ice cold - it's cooler than be cool; super cool, ice can also be flashy jewelry
    MP - A Pfeiffer is a really good looking person, because Michelle Pfeiffer is widely considered to be the most beautiful woman of her generation.
    White gold - sometimes used to describe a white girl with a nice big bottom...or semem...
    Hood girls, good girls - just what they say
    straight masterpieces - they're beautiful

    General CommentI love how this song is credited to Mark Ronson ... I imagine he does the music behind the song. Really though Bruno Mars brings this song to life, and really is the big reason for its popularity (partly because of his brand but also because of his voice).

    This is one of the few pop hits I have really enjoyed of late (although being overplayed now). Has really funky tune to it, and definitely has a Prince cum early Michael Jackson sound to it (Bruno has been playing around with this style for a while now).

    QuestionDoes no one else see the references to cocaine in the first verse?

    This hit, that ice cold
    (Cocaine is often referred to as "snow")

    Michelle Pfeiffer, that white gold

    (Cocaine is often referred to as "white girl" and then often attached to a specific famous white woman, for example 'that Britney Spears' "That Christina Aguilar" "that Miley Cyrus". Also, "white gold" is a reference to cocaine because of its street value"

    This one for them hood girls
    (hood girls love cocaine"

    My InterpretationThis songs lyrics are about street quality coke! And the dealer that is ALWAYS in his spot! And "Uptown Funk" has been know for many years as that "Rich white boy high" from better than street quality coke!
    Dalmn, don't nobody ever learn any street talk? LoL

    (Also most quickly picked up songs are about drugs still!)
