Musical Autopsy

In this movella, I will strip a song down to its core and try to decipher its inner meaning, if it has one, and what is wrong with it. Song suggestions welcome. *Update - I only do songs that made one of the billboard charts at some point in time. Thanks!*

~~

La la, la la
 You were the popular one, the popular chick
 It is what it is, now I'm popular-ish

 

Popular-ish? That isn't a word. Just saying.


 Standing on the field with your pretty pompom
 Now
you're working at the movie selling popular corn

 

Pretty PomPom? They only had one pompom? How sad.


 I could have been a mess but I never went wrong
 'Cause I'm putting down my story in a popular song
 I said I'm putting down my story in a popular song

 

I heard you. Thanks.

 

~~My problem, I never was a model,
 I never
was a scholar,

Ariana Grande was in this, and she looked FREAKING BEAUTIFUL IN THIS LIKE ALWAYS SO, YES, ONE OF YOU WAS A MODEL.


 But you were always popular,
 You were singing all the songs I don't know

 

And that made them popular? Oh.


 Now you're in the front row
 'Cause my song is popular

 

Front row of what?
 

Popular, I know about popular
 It's not about who you are or your fancy car
 You're only ever who you were

I thought being popular was about who you are and your fancy car? No? Well, I stand correct Mika.


 Popular, I know about popular
 And all that you have to do is be true to you
 That's all you ever need to know

 

Hahahahahahahhaahaha, I tried this, didn't work.

 

~~So catch up 'cause you got an awful long way to go
 So catch up 'cause you got an awful long way to go

I'm. so. Confused.

 Always on the lookout for someone to hate,
 Picking on me like a dinner plate
 You hid during classes, and in between 'em
 Dunked me in the toilets, now it's you that cleans them
 You tried to make me feel bad with the things you do
 It ain't so funny when the joke's on you

 

I can't even make a joke about this, nice job Mika *claps*


 Ooh, the joke's on you
 Got everyone laughing, got everyone clapping, asking,
 "How come you look so cool?"
 'Cause that's the only thing that I've learned at school, boy (uh huh)
 I said that that's the only thing that I've learned at school

 

This is confusing.

 

~~My problem, I never was a model,
 I never was a scholar,
 But you were always popular,
 You were singing all the songs I don't know
 Now you're in the front row
 'Cause my song is popular

 Popular, I know about popular
 It's not about who you are or your fancy car
 You're only ever who you were
 Popular, I know about popular
 And all that you have to do is be true to you
 That's all you ever need to know
 (that's all you ever need to know)

 So catch up 'cause you got an awful long way to go
 So catch up 'cause you got an awful long way to go

 It's all you ever need to know
 You're only ever who you were
 It's all you ever need to know
 You're only ever who you were
 (It's all you ever need to know)
 It's all you ever need to know

 Popular, I know about popular
 It's not about who you are or your fancy car
 You're only ever who you were

 Popular, I know about popular
 It's not about who you are or your fancy car
 You're only ever who you were
 Popular, I know about popular
 And all that you have to do is be true to you.
 That's all you ever need to know...
 (That's all you ever need to know...)

 

The fact that this whole thing is a chorus.
