'90s Sunday could never be your woman

I heard this on the radio today. Boston's 92.9 FM had their very own '90s Sunday. Who knew? Anyway, something about it sounds so modern; the dirty bass in the bridge seems like a predecessor to dubstep.

Why do I love this song? I'm sure each person has his/her own interpretation, but I always pictured it as a drag queen's victory. A frat-boy jock falls head over heels for her, and she says, "I could never be your woman." For once, she's the winner and he's the one left in the dust with a broken heart. Empowering, until I paid attention to the rest of the lyrics (just now), which I will promptly forget. I prefer my own depiction.
