I'll Be Tappin' My Toes To This All Day

You know that thing when you are totally familiar with a song but you have no idea who sings it and whatever radio station you listen to doesn't play a lot of pop songs and so the wisps of that song just float through the transom of your musical conciousness from time to time and you never grasp enough of it to be able, for example, to sing it at karaoke but you know you like it?

You know how to solve that? Have a teenage girl. Then when you are lucky enough to hear the song you can say, "Who is this?" and she can say (granted, with a self-important and smug tone in her voice) "Katy Perry".

I rather enjoy this little nymph. And she makes me feel better about the fact that my bangs need a trim. Actually, she makes me rethink the whole bangs-need-a-trim notion.

One technical note: the original video starts out with her making her vows every so sweetly. Unfortunately, not only do the bastids at the record labels still think that making it possible to share music with others will somehow cut into music sales, they have apparently figured out a work-around for media convertors. So the only video I could find to embed cuts off the very first part. But not the song. And it's Jukebox Friday. And it's about the music.

Katy Perry "Hot 'n Cold"

A surprising selection. And by "surprising" what I really mean is "something that I like too."

I guess I need me a teenage daughter, because that always happens to me! I probably have like 10 songs that I love, but I have no idea what they are called or who sings them. I guess I'll have to put Iwanski on the case. :)

That was truly great.

Except for the very end.

"you're so gay" is also a clever one although it does offend homosexuals so that's not good.
