Background

Body Talks Charting

The song and music video featuring Kesha reached the top of the rock charts on iTunes when it was first released.

Luke Spiller discussed the background of the song in an interview on The Elvis Duran Show.

[Kesha] is a real rock and roller at heart really. When you talk to her about her music and stuff, she loves the Stones. She loves a lot of great British bands. So I think we naturally connected and she heard the song and that was it really.

Kesha also talked about the song in a statement to Rolling Stone.[1]

[The Struts] are one of my favorite current bands keeping the spirit of classic rock and roll alive with their wild energy and sexy style. It’s a song about my favorite activity: boogieing.

Lyrics

Hahahaha
What

Your eyes follow like a spotlight
Two eyes like the sun
Go ahead, keep your distance from me
Soon you're gonna come
When you flick your hair like you don't care
And you ask me where I'm from
That game that you're running, baby
You've already won

I need to know, know, know
What do you need, need, need?
What do you like, like, like?
'Cause I'm gonna be it tonight

You can be cool, you can be shy
Say what you want, say what you like
'Cause ooh, your body talks, your body talks
Ooh, ooh, your body talks
You can pretend you don't want it now
But I read the signs from your head to your toes
Yeah, you don't need to say a word 'cause
Ooh, ooh, your body talks

Your lips are a conversation
That face is a song
If it's my imagination
Stop me if I'm wrong

I need to know, know, know
What do you need, need, need?
What do you like, like, like?
'Cause I'm gonna be it tonight

You can be cool, you can be shy
Say what you want, say what you like
'Cause ooh, your body talks, your body talks
Ooh, ooh, your body talks
You can pretend you don't want it now
But I read the signs from your head to your toes
Yeah, you don't need to say a word 'cause
Ooh, ooh, your body talks

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, ooh

Come on, babe
Down, girl, shake your hips, yeah
Ooh, ooh, it's on your lips
Yeah, you know, oh, you're into this
Yeah, you can try to hide it, but you know you can't deny it
Ooh ooh, your body talks, your body talks
Ooh, your body talks, ow

You can be cool, you can be shy
Say what you want, say what you like
'Cause ooh, your body talks, your body talks
Ooh, ooh, your body talks
You can pretend you don't want it now
But I read the signs from your head to your toes
Yeah, you don't need to say a word 'cause
Ooh, ooh, your body talks

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh (talk to me)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh, ooh
You don't need to say a word

You can be cool, you can be shy
Say what you want, say what you like
Yeah, you don't need to say a word 'cause
Ooh, ooh, your body talks
