Repetition kills you

Like Mike, I'm more or less completely tuned out of the contemporary music scene. But one of the advantages of a three-hour road trip on I-70 is the chance to listen to the odd radio stations that pop up in eastern Ohio. Yesterday we heard this on the Muskingum College radio station. I love its 80s vibe, though Tom thought it sounded more like The Kinks. Either way, we're decades off: apparently, it's on an album that the Black Ghosts just released today. Wow, for once, I'm ahead of the curve!

The song is about itself!

It's my dearest hope that the song *knows* that about itself, and it's a witty little joke.

Regardless, as I heard someone say about "I Kissed a Girl" on NPR this evening, "It's got a good beat and you can dance to it." Really. That's what she said.

I'm surprised that "Jim," if that is his real name, didn't note the video's debt to Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues." Perhaps via INXS's "Mediate." Me, I enjoyed the guy in the cute green underwear who appeared for two fabulous seconds.
