don't change the subject my friend

this song is not only funny but I think weirdly beautiful - plaintive!

aimed at songs like these I assume (or their equivalents a year ago)

"Throw Sum Mo" is also weirdly beautiful  

Love that sort of tick-tocking psychedelic-glistening production

Nicki's dead-eyed zero-affect chorus

contrasting with 

the excessively excited rapping - histrionic almost-whinnying outbursts
like "girl you got me FASC-I-NATED!!!!!"

also the blink-you'll-miss-it bit where "just keep on dancin' til I'm outta paper" is answered by a background "Never!"

Late Breaking:
Matt in the comments mentions this spoof

Naomi Elizabeth has a host of other parody / satirical / humorous songs on YouTube but I have yet to go through properly

"Topic" reminds me a tiny bit of Geneva Jacuzzi's not-quite-right synthpop with a performance art lo-fi promovideo thing
