    Rihanna is Bohemian. Pon is derrived from the infinitive "poner," which means "to put." De simply means "of" or "on." She is basically saying, in slang, "Replay the song" or "Put on the replay." I can't fucking believe I am commenting on this song.

    aMaidensPrayer, surely 'pon' is short for 'upon', so the title means 'upon the replay' in other words play the song again.

    No she doesn't. You suck. And I think it's Mexican, but whatever it is, it's deffinetely not French.

    Foxwing, Mexican isn't a language. God, talk about annoying. What annoys me more than rap/hiphop and the people who like it are people who think "Mexican" is a language.

    What do you mean, she's Bohemian? There isn't a place called Bohemia that all the Bohemians come from... It sounds more like a Caribbean slang to me... like "gyal"... what does that mean? I'm guessing it's something like "girls" but I don't know... I am not a Rihanna fan at all, but this song is catchy and fun to dance to, I'll agree with that.

    What exactly does "pon de replay" mean? What, for that matter, does "pon" mean?

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
