Buttons

Charted: 3 3

Songfacts®:

  • In this song, The Pussycat Dolls sing about a guy who impresses a girl and says all the right things, but won't make a move to take her clothes off and pursue a sexual encounter. The guy might think he is being a gentleman, but the girl finds this behavior timid and would like him to assert himself.
  • Snoop Dogg raps on this at the beginning an end of the song. At first, he is bragging to the girls about "What he's gonna do to them," and the lead Pussycat is skeptical. She replies, "I don't see nothing yet." He persuades her that he is serious, and both sides seem to be satisfied at the end of the song. >>

  • Stormy from Northport, MiI love this song.
    Gotta turn it up when it's on the Jeep radio and dance to it when I'm on the floor.
  • Nady from Adelaide, AustraliaI still cant figure out if they are singers or strippers, please ladies put some f*cking pants on. P.S. the red head looks like a bloke
  • Pippin from Rhye, CaTwo years ago (I'm 14, I was 12 then), two of my friends whose musical tastes I could never understand tried to persuade me to get this song. I absolutely did not want to. I thought it was pointless. My mum even said, "If you buy it for them - I'll give you back the dollar." (Because it was on iTunes.) Now, I think that if my mum saw this site and learned what it was about she wouldn't let me buy it. Wish I was into Led Zeppelin and Queen and stuff back then, I coulda struck a deal with them so that if I bought Buttons they'd get Bohemian Rhapsody.
  • Kristin from Yaphank, NyWell I guess for musical purposes people disregard reality a lil' bit...Great, catchy song.
  • Sebastian from Providence, RiWell, this song is as hot as the PCD!!
