Ok, so I have a new guilty pleasure. I always knock people when they copy this chord progression in songs (you can hear it in Tik-Tok, Holiday, Get Together, etc) because it’s so over-used. I’m going to let this one go by, because I can’t get it out of my head. Katy Perry returns to the music scene with a song that sounds exactly like everything that’s out right now called California Gurls.
It’s featuring Snoop Dogg, my favorite rapper of the lot singing about icy popsicles and such all while a vocoded ‘California’ gets repeated over and over. It’s fun, it’s summer. I’ve always loved Katy’s performances and hated her music. I hope she comes out with something completely new and different, but it looks like she’s playing it safe for this album. - Matt
