A little over a month ago, I was driving in the car flipping through radio stations when I came across a pretty catchy lyric, “I might get your heart racing in my skin-tight jeans be your teenage dream tonight. Let you put your hands on me in my skin-tight jeans be your teenage dream tonight.” I thought, this is pretty catchy… I can get into this!
Imagine my reaction when I found out the song was sung by none other than Katy Perry. If you’ve been following the blog for awhile, you know how I feel about Katy Perry and what I thought of her performance at Bumbershoot last summer. [post here]
I couldn’t just stop liking this song though because I genuinely enjoyed it. I tried to justify it by telling myself that I was a fan of the song before even knowing that Katy Perry had sung it. When I brought this up to my best friend last night she said,
“Can’t you tell that California Girls and Teenage Dream are the same song? They have the same beat.”
I hate that song California Girls.
