CHAINED TO THE RHYTHM
I like Katy Perry. She has some catchy. fun, meaningful songs.
I’ve heard this song and I like it .
A dear friend asked me if I’d seen the video (I hadn’t) and mentioned that there was a deeper, hidden meaning to the song.
I present to you both videos.
You be the judge!
“Chained to the Rhythm” Meaning
“Chained to the Rhythm” by Katy Perry is about people who live live far away from difficulty or unhappiness and who aren’t willing to come down out of these “bubble[s]” to see real problems that need to be solved in the world. She doesn’t specify the kind of problems and leaves it to her audience to apply her song to situations on their own though there does seem to be a pretty substantial political charge to this song.
“Chained to the Rhythm” is obviously intended to be a club hit, which brings us to a dilemma: do we dance and ignore the message, or do we stop and try to change the world? Perry obviously wants us to wake up (and possibly stop listening to her song), which makes “Chained to the Rhythm” deeper than your average pop song and also heavily ironic.
Of course, all of this has a vague but unmistakable political tint to it.
Katy Perry was no fan of Donald Trump for United States president. In fact, she was outspokenly in favor of Hillary Clinton, so it makes sense that a song calling out people for not standing up and calling out those in power for being in the wrong could be about Donald Trump’s administration. In any case, “Chained to the Rhythm” is an interesting song with a deep meaning. Let me know what you think in the comments, and let’s continue the conversation!
