SLS: Luxurious

This week is about Singularity — our Sunday Song Lyrics challenge from Jim is about single word song titles and the song that we must choose should contain only one word in the title.

This is kind of hard as there are tons of songs with single word titles and I bet everyone is feeling the same kind of indecision as I do, but we got to choose one…. hmmm…

So as usual, I will be posting something that I really really really like and it’s by my favorite, Gwen Stefani.

Luxurious is a song by American singer and songwriter Gwen Stefani from her debut solo studio album, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. in 2004. The song was written by Stefani and her No Doubt bandmate Tony Kanal. The track contains a sample of the Isley Brothers’ 1983 song Between the Sheets.

Additionally, the song features use of keyboards, synthesizers, and electric guitars. The song is a contemporary R&B ballad whose lyrics describe the persona’s desire to be rich in love, simultaneously comparing her lover with luxuries. The song also features Stefani’s then-husband Gavin Rossdale who opens the song in French.

The song was released as the album’s fifth single in October 2005 along with a remix featuring rapper Slim Thug. A music video was also released which featured Slim Thug, as well as the Harajuku Girls. The track received mixed reviews from critics, who generally found it less impressive than the previous singles.

Luxurious

C’est pas possible cet amour
C’est incroyable
Tu me fais transpirer
C’est parfaitWorking so hard, every night and day
And now we get the pay back
Trying so hard, saving up the paper
But now we get to lay back
Working so hard, every night and day
And now we get the pay back, the pay back, the pay back

Champagne kisses, hold me in your lap of luxury
I only want to fly first-class desires, you’re my limousine
So eloquent, the way we ride, our passion, it just multiplies
There’s platinum lightning in the sky
Look I’m livin’ like a queen

This kind of love is getting expensive
We know how to live, baby
We’re luxurious, like Egyptian cotton
We’re so rich in love, we’re rollin’ in cashmere
Got it in fifth gear, baby
Diamond in the rough is lookin’ so sparkly

Working so hard, every night and day
And now we get the pay back
Trying so hard, saving up the paper
But now we get to lay back
Working so hard, every night and day
And now we get the pay back, the pay back, the pay back

Sugar, honey, sexy baby
When we touch it turns to gold
Sensitive and delicate, kinda like a tuberose
You know you are my treasure chest
It’s pure perfection when we kiss
And you’re my mister, I’m your miss
Gonna be until we’re old

This kind of love is getting expensive
We know how to live, baby
We’re luxurious, like Egyptian cotton

Working so hard, every night and day
And now we get the pay back
Trying so hard, saving up the paper
But now we get to lay back
Working so hard, every night and day
And now we get the pay back, the pay back, the pay back

Working so hard, every night and day
And now we get the pay back
Trying so hard, saving up the paper
But now we get to lay back
Working so hard, every night and day
And now we get the pay back, the pay back, the pay back

We’re loaded and we’re not gonna blow it
(Cha-ching, cha-ching)
We’re hooked up with the love cause we grow it
(Cha-ching, cha-ching)
We got hydroponic love and we’re smokin’
(Cha-ching, cha-ching)
We burn it, you and I, we are so lit

And we’re so rich in love, we’re rollin’ in cashmere
Got it in fifth gear, baby
Diamond in the rough is lookin’ so sparkly

Working so hard, every night and day
And now we get the pay back
Trying so hard, saving up the paper
But now we get to lay back
Working so hard, every night and day
And now we get the pay back, the pay back, the pay back
