Music Review: Blah Blah Blah - Ke$ha ft. 3OH!3
Speed: 120 bpm
The DJ’s Take: If I were a 13 year old girl, and I had just heard this song for the first time, I would trudge angrily up to my room, slam the door behind me, and cry into my Jonas Brothers pillow. To quote the great John McEnroe, you cannot be serious. This song just broke into the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. If this stays on for a couple more weeks and someone actually requests it, I may actually need to download this and spin it. Come on America - do you just not care about what you listen to anymore? This song is like those White House party crashers - it should not be there.
Not surprisingly, it’s in the same key and same bpm as TiK ToK, which is currently #1, so you can mix them together into a double abomination. On a side note, I mixed in TiK ToK right after Thong Song last weekend in front of a full house, and I just started laughing in the booth. Not a “This is so awesome” kind of laugh. It was more like, “How did I become so lame that I would think of that mix” kind of laugh. It worked (both were requests), but that’s when you know you’ve sold out.
On a historical side note, this single reminds me of Robin S’s Show Me Love, which I think was #1 on the charts back in the mid 90s.
