Mr Saxobeat (Alexandra Stan)

Romanian music continues to gain international relevance specializing in eurodance. "Mr. Saxobeat" is an up-tempo eurodance song with elements of house. The song features a saxophone throughout and uses some trance beats.

Alexandra Stan was born on June 10, 1989 in Constanta, Romania. Discovering her talent for music at an early age, as a child she took part of a lot of competitions, even the music festival 'Mamaia", where she impressed the audience with her versatile voice. In 2009 she released her debut single "Lollipop," but it was the follow-up "Mr. Saxobeat," which really ignited her career, becoming Stan's first number one single in her home country and entering the singles charts all over Europe.

In the song we can find several verbal forms, sometimes mixed in the same paragraph without much order. The singer is talking to Mr Saxobeat (you...), then suddenly to the listener about him (he...), then back to Mr Saxobeat...
- You make me this >> present tense
- Bring me up, etc. = (you) bring me up >> present tense
- Makes me dance, etc. = (he) makes me dance >> present tense
- Set me free / Don't be so shy, etc. >> imperative

A FREAK= An excentric person / An enthusiastic person.

SAXOBEAT= A man's name invented for this song which means "the beat (=rhythm) of the saxophone".

SET ME FREE= Free me, liberate me, release me from prison.

DIRTY= A dirty person is someone who thinks of sex a lot.

YOU BELONG NEXT TO ME= Your place is here with me.
If you belong to a place, that is the right place for you, that's where you should be.

Stan speaks of a man she is attracted to and the way he makes her move. If you read the lyrics you'll notice it's only a few sentences repeated over and over again, no mystery or story, just rhythm.
