    Friday by Rebecca Black is about the JFK assasination

    Did you think the song friday was just a normal horrible ear-bleeding pop song that was released a year ago? No it is really about the JFK assassination. Proof? Let's look at the lyrics

    7 a.m., waking up in the morning

    JFK woke up at 7 am the day he died

    Got to be fresh, got to go downstairs

    He has to be 'fresh' to go 'downstairs' which could easily represent he has to get ready to die, downstairs representing death.

    Got to have my bowl, got to have cereal

    When JFK died he declined to have sausage, eggs, and toast and instead ate Bran Flakes.

    Seeing everything, the time is going

    Everything throughout his day goes by quickly, his time to live is going by.

    Ticking on and on, everybody’s rushing

    A reference to the cold war by the sound to make it sound as if it says 'Everybody is Russian'

    Got to get down to the bus stop

    The following Monday (after JFK died) JFK was supposed to sign a bill that required public bus transportation for schools.

    Got to catch my bus, I see my friends (my friends)

    This also has to do with the verse right before it, same meaning here. However this can also imply JFK getting into the car he was assassinated in.

    Kicking in the front seat

    The driver of the car that JFK was in was named Samuel Kickin, see the correlation here?

    Sitting in the back seat

    JFK was assassinated when he sat in the back seat of the car instead of kicking in the front seat.

    Got to make my mind up
    Which seat can I take?

    Shows his inner quarrels that say he should take the back seat yet he has a strange feeling something bad may happen, he is in deep inner thought conflict.

    It’s Friday, Friday

    JFK was assassinated on a Friday

    Got to get down on Friday

    When JFK was assassinated secret service yelled at Jackie Kennedy to 'get down'

    Everybody’s looking forward to the weekend, weekend
    Friday, Friday
    Getting down on Friday
    Everybody’s looking forward to the weekend

    Everybody is looking forward for the weekend to find out if their questions on the assassination can be answered.

    Partying, partying (yeah)
    Partying, partying (yeah)
    Fun, fun, fun, fun
    Looking forward to the weekend

    This shows the irony and chaos of the assassination with things generally correlated as good yet also tend to be chaotic.

    7:45, we’re driving on the highway

    JFK is heading to the airport in this scene, because he did fly the day of his assassination

    Cruising so fast, I want time to fly

    Represents the plane he flew on to reach Dallas Texas with the word fly.

    Fun, fun, think about fun

    More irony of the whole assassination

    You know what it is
    I got this, you got this
    My friend is by my right
    I got this, you got this
    Now you know it

    'I got this' represents Kennedy taking the bullet while 'you got this' represents Jackie Kennedy getting JFK's dead corpse, and now everybody knows John F. Kennedy is dead.

    Kicking in the front seat
    Sitting in the back seat
    Got to make my mind up
    Which seat can I take?

    Same meaning as last time

    It’s Friday, Friday
    Got to get down on Friday
    Everybody’s looking forward to the weekend, weekend
    Friday, Friday
    Getting down on Friday
    Everybody’s looking forward to the weekend

    Same meaning

    Partying, partying (yeah)
    Partying, partying (yeah)
    Fun, fun, fun, fun
    Looking forward to the weekend

    Same meaning

    Yesterday was Thursday, Thursday
    Today is Friday, Friday (partying)
    We-we-we so excited
    We so excited
    We going to have a ball today

    Shows more irony of the situation, and the 'excitement' that his death caused, although not the good kind. The ball represents the bullet that shot Kennedy.

    Tomorrow is Saturday
    And Sunday comes afterwards
    I don’t want this weekend to end

    Nobody wants the weekend after the Friday to end because there are to many questions, to much grief over the loss of John F. Kennedy.

    So chilling in the front seat (in the front seat)
    In the back seat (in the back seat)

    Shows a repetition of the seats and their significance in his death.

    I’m driving, cruising (yeah, yeah)
    Fast lanes, switching lanes

    The fast build up in the car to John F. Kennedy's death

    With a car up on my side (woo, come on!)
    Passing by is a school bus in front of me

    Repetition of the idea that John F. Kennedy was starting the public bus system for schools, and a car up on my side represents the assassin preparing to shoot.

    Makes tick-tock, tick-tock, want to scream
    Check my time, it's Friday, it's a weekend
    We going to have fun, come on, come on, y'all

    Everybody wants to scream, on the Friday, because JFK has just been shot, and the assassin has an inner taunt at the chaos about to unfold from his death.

    It’s Friday, Friday
    Got to get down on Friday
    Everybody’s looking forward to the weekend, weekend (we gonna get down)
    Friday, Friday
    Getting down on Friday
    Everybody’s looking forward to the weekend

    Same meaning, yet more chaotic because now Kennedy has been shot.

    Partying, partying (yeah)
    Partying, partying (yeah)
    Fun, fun, fun, fun
    Looking forward to the weekend

    Same meaning, more chaotic.

    It’s Friday, Friday
    Got to get down on Friday
    Everybody’s looking forward to the weekend, weekend
    Friday, Friday
    Getting down on Friday
    Everybody’s looking forward to the weekend

    Same meaning

    Partying, partying (yeah)
    Partying, partying (yeah)
    Fun, fun, fun, fun
    Looking forward to the weekend

    Same meaning

    I'm going to guess the Napalming of Vietnam (or other such theatre of war).

    I will engulf your knowledge. There is so little of it that I can easily swallow it up like dew to a desert wanderer.




    0/10 on the song.

    that describes everyone here including me.
    Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”
    Fear not at all; fear neither men nor Fates, nor gods, nor anything. Money fear not, nor laughter of the folk folly, nor any other power in heaven or upon the earth or under the earth.
