This has got to be one of my favourite music videos ever, and is definitely one of my favourite songs on Lala's latest album! I first heard her sing this live at her concert, and recall her saying that this song was headed towards a different style from the slower ballads that she usually composes. Although this is truly a step in another direction for Lala, she steps up to the challenge and takes it on fully, embracing an entire new side of her personality that listeners have never seen before; one that is fun, sassy, ridiculous, but always adorable. The branding of the song for me is more headed towards an electronic european pop sound, but with Lala's own signature sincerity added to it, especially in the rebellious lyrics by Sandee Chen which encourage listeners to face up to themselves both in terms of their relationships and themselves.
This song has really shown me a different side of Lala, her headstrong, outspoken side comes through in the song, as does her passion for music, which is what I love about her. She completely engages with this song on every level, emotionally and technically as well as physically (as you can see by her dance moves), and I just find it amazing every time I watch her perform or interact with music. An awesome song for when you're blue or just a little pissed off at times. Shake it out with Lala!
