Paula Abdul's Ho down is the most sinister track of her catalog

My favorite paula abdul album is sadly the one that flopped. 


It did go gold in the US.

One of the tracks I love is Ho Down.


It's very sinister. Right down to Paula basically wishing death on the ho. 

Lines that make this sinister.


"She just belongs under dirt as rotting flesh", "but she lives in a neighborhood where she deserves", 


"Watched her as Billy pushed her in the deepest darkest hole".


To basically comparing the ho to a bird that wasn't happy. Always moving to the next nest, never happy, keep moving without catching her breath. Eventually it caught up to the bird who basically fell to the ground dying alone and unhappy.


In the 90s. It wasn't cool to be seen as a ho. As it was seen as ghetto. Especially in the era of the AIDS crisis. Most people didn't accept casual six or multiple partners. It's different now. But in 95. Lord if you were a ho. Or promiscuous. You were known like the harlot in the scarlet letter.

No. I just love the song. I always share my music with u. Especially the hidden gems. And honestly i say at least 88% of the members fit that category
