So you’ve found the girl of your dreams. When you look into her eyes you see heaven. She edifies your soul and inspires you to be a better man. There’s only one problem- you have to get her dad’s blessing before she’ll marry you. She comes from a well-to-do family and her dad envisions his precious gem marrying a highly successful man. Definitely not the “cruff” you are. Nevertheless, you hop into your ancient car and roll with your crew to ask this man the big question. “Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life?” Before you can finish asking the question, he shakes his head and closes the door in your face. No matter how many times you ask, the result is the same. So what do you do? Marry her anyway of course!
This is the story line of Magic’s hot summer track Rude which charted on the Billboard Top 100. Its groovy reggae beat makes you bob your head and tap your feet from the beginning of the song straight to the end. However, the beat was only the second thing that caught my attention. The first thing was this amazing story line. Oftentimes we can’t help who we fall in love with. So what if you fall in love with a girl who society dictates is well out of your league? What if she falls in love with you too? Are you just going to end the relationship or marry her anyway? It’s a question that isn’t as simple to answer as Magic makes it out to be. Nevertheless, it may be worth the risk since her dad may come around eventually. So will you move forward in the name of love or just let her go?
