Ke$ha Week 2011: Day 1

I lost a bet recently.

The details aren't as important as the wager.  If I lost (and I narrowly but decisively did), I would have to listen to Kesha Radio on Pandora for a week.  Whenever I sat at my computer and otherwise would have been inclined to listen to iTunes or or one of my own Pandora stations, I got nailed with Ke$ha instead.

And I couldn't count on exploiting any loopholes: Two skips per hour.  (No skipping if our dollar-signed friend herself showed up.)  And no manipulating the playlist with thumbs-upping/downing.

It's a tall order, but I'm honor-bound to go through with it.  Ever wondered what a Ke$ha Pandora station is like, but a little too scared (or proud) to investigate it for yourself?  You can live vicariously through me!

Ke$ha Week, Day 1: March 27, 2011

Ke$ha "hit" of the day: "Blah Blah Blah".  This song is so inspired that it's hard to pick out the best lyric, so here are two: "don't be a little bitch with your chitchat," "I wanna be naked, and you're wasted."

Worst song of the day: "3", Britney Spears.  Lyric: "1, 2, 3/ Not only you and me,/ Got one eighty degrees,/ And I'm caught in between."  This song is about having a threesome.  It is so overproduced that Britney actually sings autotuned harmony with her autotuned self.  

Did "Like a G6" show up?  Yes, around the sixth song.  It might have been a remix, because the album was listed as Far East Movement Remixes, but nobody announced "remix!" at the beginning, so I wasn't sure.

Peak ridiculousness: "I Like It," Enrique Iglesias feat. Pitbull.  When a song's selling point is that it was included on the Jersey Shore soundtrack, you can guess about how good it is.

Song that I skipped: "Bottoms Up," Trey Songz.  I shouldn't have been surprised that this song was so bad given how Mr. Songz chooses to spell his name.

"Currently listening" is on hiatus for the next week.  Mourn for it.
