It's So Cool

"Celebration" is the first off Madonna's fourth greatest hits album Celebration.

Background

Celebration has been described as a sleek dance-oriented track with influences of previous dance singles by Madonna from the early 90s such as, "Vogue" and "Deeper and Deeper". It consists of a pumping, house style music in it. Paul Oakenfold described the composition as "lyrically classic Madonna with an edgy modern sound." Influences of Europop are found in the song, but not to the extent of previous single, "Hung Up". According to a writer from the Los Angeles Times, the song has a highly energetic synth-pop groove while referencing 80s Madonna songs. The bridge is in a speak-sing format, where Madonna's voice, consisting of a little edge, declares that "I didn't recognize you with your clothes on."

Composition

The song is set in the time signature of common time with a dance beat tempo of 126 beats per minute. It is set in the key of B minor with Madonna's voice spanning from F♯3 to B4. The song has a basic sequence of Em–F♯m–Bm–Bm as its chord progression.

Lyrics

I think you wanna come over
Yeah I heard it through the grapevine
Are you drunk or you sober
Think about it, doesn't matter
And if it makes you feel good then I say do it
I don't know what you're waiting for

Feel my temperature rising
There's too much heat I'm gonna lose control
Do you want to go higher, get closer to the fire
I don't know what you're waiting for

Come join the party, yeah
'Cause everybody just won't do
Let's get this started, yeah
'Cause everybody wants to party with you

Boy you got a reputation
But you're gonna have to prove it
I see a little hesitation
Am I gonna have to show you
That if it feels right, get on your marks
Step to the beat boy that's what it's for

Put your arms around me
When it gets too hot we can go outside
But for now just come here, let me whisper in your ear
An invitation to the dance of life

Come join the party, it's a celebration
'Cause anybody just won't do
Let's get this started, no more hesitation
'Cause everybody wants to party with you

Haven't I seen you somewhere before
You look familiar
You wanna dance, yeah
I guess I just don't recognize you with your clothes on
What are you waiting for

Come join the party, it's a celebration
Anybody just won't do
Let's get this started, no more hesitation
'Cause everybody wants to party with you

Come join the party, it's a celebration
Anybody just won't do
Let's get this started, no more hesitation
'Cause everybody wants to party with you

Boy you've got it, it's a celebration
'Cause anybody just won't do
Let's get it started, no more hesitation
'Cause everybody wants to party with you

Boy you've got it
'Cause anybody just won't do
Let's get it started, no more hesitation
'Cause everybody wants to party with you
