Notes:

Perfect pop makes for perfect car sing-a-long songs. What’s your fave car rave?

You can see all the songs that have ‘officially’ been inducted into the RTS Perfect Pop list right here, yo.

Jim went to see the Foo Fighters at RFK Stadium one July 4. That was the time Dave Grohl had that big chair and that broken leg.

The full lyrics to “Super Bass.” Not sure if 12-year-olds should be knowing these words by heart, but know them they did:

This one is for the boys with the booming system
Top down, AC with the cooling system
When he come up in the club, he be blazin’ up
Got stacks on deck like he savin’ up

And he ill, he real, he might got a deal
He pop bottles and he got the right kind of bill
He cold, he dope, he might sell coke
He always in the air, but he never fly coach
He a motherfucking trip, trip, sailor of the ship, ship
When he make it drip, drip kiss him on the lip, lip
That’s the kind of dude I was lookin’ for
And yes you’ll get slapped if you’re lookin’ hoe

I said, excuse me, you’re a hell of a guy
I mean my, my, my, my you’re like pelican fly
I mean, you’re so shy and I’m loving your tie
You’re like slicker than the guy with the thing on his eye, oh
Yes I did, yes I did, somebody please tell him who the F I is
I am Nicki Minaj, I mack them dudes up, back coupes up, and chuck the deuce up

[Chorus – Ester Dean & Nicki Minaj:]
Boy, you got my heartbeat runnin’ away
Beating like a drum and it’s coming your way
Can’t you hear that boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass?
You got that super bass
Boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass
Yeah, that’s the super bass
(Boom) [x16]
(You got that super bass)
Boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass
He got that super bass
Boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass
He got that super bass

[Verse 2:]
This one is for the boys in the polos
Entrepreneur niggas & the moguls
He could ball with the crew, he could solo
But I think I like him better when he down low
And I think I like him better with the fitted cap on
He ain’t even gotta try to put the mac on
He just gotta give me that look, when he give me that look
Then the panties comin’ off, off, uh
Excuse me, you’re a hell of a guy you know I really got a thing for American guys
I mean, sigh, sickenin’ eyes I can tell that you’re in touch with your feminine side, oh
Yes I did, yes I did, somebody please tell him who the F I is
I am Nicki Minaj, I mack them dudes up, back coupes up, and chuck the deuce up

[Chorus – Ester Dean & Nicki Minaj]

[Bridge:]
See I need you in my life for me to stay
No, no, no, no, no, I know you’ll stay
No, no, no, no, no, don’t go away (ay-ay)
Boy, you got my heartbeat runnin’ away
Don’t you hear that heartbeat comin’ your way?
Oh, it be like, boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass
Can’t you hear that boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass?

[Chorus – Ester Dean & Nicki Minaj]
