Ibanking Song? Girlfriend just sent me this....could this famous song be about ibanking the whole time?

My girlfriend just emailed me this song when I'm still at work. She included a link and "this reminded me of you for some reason :)"

I didn't even know this singer existed, but after wiki'ing her, I realize she's really famous.

I didn't know why my GF sent it to me until I watched the video 3 times and listened to the lyrics, and did 5 minutes of googling to realize the lead singer (Andrea Corrs, cute brunette) married an investment banker.

If you listen to the lyrics, she says stuff like "it doesn't really matter if we never sleep, it really doesn't matter if we never eat..." and "...next day we do it all over again" It isn't about partying either since the video was shot with men in suits and at the Chicago Merc.

It almost seems like the video is trying to show that the girls are throwing "letters" down at the businessmen/manniquins and making them come alive...as if to say they've all lost their souls and all they need is a little love (from a girl) to make them human again.

Why am I thinking like this? Well, isn't it obvious? It's 11PM, I'm still at the office, my GF is emailing me love songs about mocking businessmen in suits losing to their ambitions and giving up their youth/love lives for their "dreams". I mean, just watch the video! Could this have been about young investment banking types the whole time? Aimed towards men of course.

After reading this post, I recommend you replace the part in your username that says "rich" with something more appropriate, like "a"

The answer to all your questions is no.

My suggestion to you is to reach down in your pants, in the office, and search for two balls. If you can't find them it's probably because they are stuck in your girlfriends purse.

Your street cred-o-meter just plummeted to zero. Good luck recovering.

Why would the wife of an investment banker sing a song as if she was the one working all night and not eating?

Not to mention that its rather likely she didn't write the song herself.

Finish up, get some sleep and create a new account, that way no one can ever trace this post back to you.

If this reminded your girlfriend of you then you must be a pussy.

You know you've been working too hard when you stop dreaming about bottles of champagne and hordes of naked women, and start dreaming about conditional formatting and circular references.
