Two songs...

Two songs.. two positions.. mmm what do you think?

"Price Tag" is a song by British recording artist Jessie J, featuring American rapper B.o.B. It was released on 28 January 2011 in the United Kingdom as the second single from Jessie J's debut studio album, Who You Are.[1] "Price Tag" was written by Jessie J, Dr. Luke, Claude Kelly and B.o.B, and it was produced by Dr. Luke.
Lyrically, the song is about Jessie J trying to make the world dance by forgetting about how much money we have.

a comment:

Meaning of this song:
1.) Forget the price tag.
2.) Have a good time.
3.) Make world peace / Make the world dance
:) :D

By: Mikuuchu

Ok.. this is the other one... Watch them and think about them.. are they the same or are they different? what's the message? Do you agree with it?

This is an example of a comment we found in you tube about this song:
Songs like this remind me that this world still has hope, and is not obsessed with money just to buy things for themselves, and that they're people out there that would want money to do things for others, instead of bathe in it. :3

well, post your comments in your blogs... and Keep on shining Love and Peace!
