So I wrote a song about the cult classic movie, Mean Girls.
An untouchable movie, but I had to pay homage in some way.
*Full lyrics below*
Please read my disclaimer VERY CAREFULLY before taking this song *too seriously*. This song does not intend to offend anyone!!!!!
It took me so long to actually commit to a finished version of the song. There’s just SO MUCH golden moments in the movie that I wrote about & wanted to include, but didn’t make the cut in the interest of “brevity”. The burn book, the hoop earrings, “I’m from Michigan”, “Let’s go to Taco Bell”, boo you wh*re! SO. MUCH!
But writing On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink had been SO much fun. I’ve had great responses from earlier gigs where I’ve played cut versions of this song. I sincerely hope that all those who get to watch this would feel amused, nostalgic, snarky, or all of the above. Shares with friends or on social media would be appreciated! I’d love for more people to hear this. The shortlink is bit.do/meangirlssong !!!
At this point, I’m assuming everybody knows this movie already – or at least has watched it once, since some people quote this on a daily basis. BUT IF, on the off-chance, you haven’t watched it yet… well. What a grave mistake. Please do something about it! :)
My ginormous thanks to:
Andrew Panopio, Miles Malferarri, and Andrew de Pano of Dearest, – for accompanying me! Also, Panopio for your wonderful rooftop!
Rizza Cabrera & David Lina – sound recording
Isa Salazar – for helping me conceive the crazy chorus to this song, one random day at MVP
Tina Fey – for being the comical genius that you are. Thank you for writing this gift and releasing it to the world

ON WEDNESDAYS, WE WEAR PINK
