I Kissed A Girl

Um, no... I didn't Kiss a Girl... It's that new whoop-dee-do, chart-topping hit by Katy Perry. It's being played to death and getting too much attention.

It's ok. It doesn't speak to me though. Personally I kiss the boys. That's the way God intended it, and who am I to question Her decision... The song is catchy, it's a good tune, but here's the thing...

It's not original and it's snagging my craw that the press is all enamoured by her. Ouuuuu she Kissed a Girl. Ouuuuu she's so radical. Ouuuuu she's pushing the envelope. Ouuuuu what an original concept to be so forthright about a girl on girl kiss.

Yea well... I'd be more impressed if this had not been done back in, oh... say 1995. Let me refresh your memory...

Jill Sobule.

The song: strangely enough... "I Kissed a Girl"

It was THEN considered a bit controversial - hey it was 13 years ago -, and yet it became a main-stream hit, thanks to the tad campy video staring Fabio as the clueless boyfriend of the sapphic explorer...

I liked the song. I loved the video. I bought the CD. Sure it was sappy and folksy and camp, but well... welcome to my world...

And I'll tell you this I much, prefer it to the Katy Perry version, and every time I hear it now on the radio I get a little irked... Every time I hear it, it's like that Jill is being kissed off...

So all I ask is the next time you turn up the radio and sing along with that oh so clever girl, remember, she's just rehashing something from last century.

And, in case you're not familiar with either song, here they are...
