All About that Bass

Saturday 9: All About that Bass (2014)

(A special request from Smellyann)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is body positive. In that spirit: What physical feature would you never change, no matter what?
My face.

2) The lyrics mention how often the media uses Photoshop to present a more ideal female form. Is Photoshop on your computer? If so, do you know how to use it?
Yes. I use it to adjust exposure; lighten, darken, adjust contrast, etc.

3) She also sings about Mattel's Barbie doll. According to Toys R Us, this year's best-selling doll is not Barbie but Disney's Elsa. Have you seen Frozen?
Nope, it is a little bit outside of my age bracket.

4) In the video, Meghan dances merrily around her twin bed with its pink head/footboard. Describe your bed to us.
It is a king size water bed.

5) Ms. Trainor began writing songs when she was 11. Would you find it easier to write lyrics or music?
Lyrics because I don’t know anything about music.

6) Meghan recently performed "All About that Bass" on the CMAs with country star Miranda Lambert. Who is your favorite country singer?
Jonny Cash.

7) In September, Meghan had to cancel several concerts because of throat trouble. Are you battling a cold, cough or sore throat this morning? 
Nope, I’m in good health.

8) Meghan was born in Nantucket, MA. "Nantucket" is an Algonquian name that means, "faraway island." How did your town get its name/what does it mean?
The original name of the town was “PAGONCHAWNISCHAGE (the great white oak place), by the Mattabasset Indians.”

9) According to the National Weather Service, between rain and snow, winter brings Nantucket the most precipitation it sees all year. How is the weather where you are today?
Sunny but cold.


  1. A king-sized waterbed sounds like a wonderful thing to sleep in.

  2. With all the dogs in bed with us, I miss my king-sized bed.

  3. Here's hoping your good health lasts through the winter! (Fingers crossed)

  4. Your town's name is quite a mouthful!

  5. There are times that I miss my water bed. Happy Saturday!

  6. Holy cow- a king sized water bed! Too bad I have dogs or I'd get one.

  7. I've never been on a waterbed, but it sounds lovely. What a name! I like learning facts like that.

  8. i seem to be the only warm one this weekend. i hope everyone else stays warm inside. a water bed sounds nice right about now- i could get down with that!!! lol. cheers!
