"I Kissed a Girl" as written by and Katy/gottwald Perry....
This was never the way I planned
Not my intention
I got so brave, drink in hand
Lost my discretion
It's not what, I'm used to
Just wanna try you on
I'm curious for you
Caught my attention

[Chorus]
I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chap stick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

No, I don't even know your name
It doesn't matter
You're my experimental game
Just human nature
It's not what, good girls do
Not how they should behave
My head gets so confused
Hard to obey

[Chorus]

Us girls we are so magical
Soft skin, red lips, so kissable
Hard to resist so touchable
Too good to deny it
Ain't no big deal, it's innocent

[Chorus]

    General CommentSo okay,
    I'm thinking that this song is really lame.
    It's degrading, even.

    "No, I don't even know your name
    It doesn't matter
    Your my experimental game"

    Oh yes, let's use people.
    :/

    Anyways, I agree with seraphicreverie.

    General CommentSure, this song isn't exactly the equivalent of lyrical gold, but damn if it isn't catchy. Love it.

    General CommentI agree completely with ecksohhhh, but adding in my own two cents in response to seraphicreverie;

    I can see where you're coming from, but you're not looking at all the factors in creating such an argument. You have to look at history. The current generation, yes, is exposed to sex and homosexuality. Why? Because we're more accepting, we're less likely to discriminate against someone because of their sexuality - we're living in a time when we allow someone to express themselves sexually, regardless of their preference. In generations past, homosexuality was frowned upon, and that includes the experimentation that goes along with it. Of course people weren't going to open up about it! This generation embraces peoples' differences and choices. People now feel free to experiment to see what/who they rather without the fear of social isolation. Who's to say they're not aloud to do that?

    But back to the song - it's pretty damn funky. I agree with chickacherrycola.

    General CommentI can't help but think that the song's a slight bit insulting at some points:

    "I got so brave, drink in hand
    Lost my discretion"
    -Sounds like a girl has to be drunk for the possibility to even happen.

    "I hope my boyfriend don't mind it"
    -Acknowledges the fact that she expects her boyfriend to find out, and doesn't care that she's kissing someone else.

    "No, I don't even know your name
    It doesn't matter
    Your my experimental game"
    -Doesn't care about the girl she's kissing much, and is using the girl like a 'game'

    It's not what, good girls do
    Not how they should behave

    ...and yet despite these thoughts of mine, it's one helluva catchy song =/

    General CommentPeople need to lighten up a little. This song is catchy and makes me laugh. There are worse songs out there.

    General CommentAs a lesbian, this song makes me a bit queasy.
    Not that I have anything against bisexual people per se [as the saying goes, some of my best friends are bi], but when I look at the lyrics of this song, all I can read into it is...well, what about the other girl? The song completely overlooks the thoughts and feelings of the other girl mentioned in the song, which bothers me somewhat because in many situations, I have been that girl. No matter what people tell you about 'experimenting' it really isn't nice or 'cool' to mess with other people's feelings, especially if you could be leading them on.
    Though I'm glad this song promotes diversity and such, from my personal experience, I can't help but feel that the narrator is somehow undermining the sexuality of both herself and the girl she kissed. She should really be more considerate.
    WIthout reading that much into it, of course, I love the song itself--it's amazingly catchy and fun.

    General CommentI agree with VeggieXDawq. I mean people come on it's just a song. I myself am a proud bisexual and I think it's really catchy song. People need just to stop freaking out. I think its great that she was brave enough to actually write the song and put herself in front of the lions; I say bravo. I know I wouldn't be able to do what she did. Everyone experiments and I'm sorry if your the one who has been that girl or guy, but you sort of put yourself into that situation in the first place; you let yourself get taken advantage of especially if you don't know the person well. This is a pretty fun song and I like it.

    General CommentIn my humble opinion, I don't think this song is degrading at all. It has a good beat and catchy lyrics. But to me, the whole idea of it is about her appreciation of how beautiful women are, and how soft and gentle we are compared to a lot of men. The fact that she talks about "the taste of her cherry chapstick" makes me think this because it's something that is particular and and unique about women, because most guys don't wear chapstick.
    And buggie92, way to be more degrading than this song by calling homosexuals "queers and lezzies." Who are you to tell us that we're not thinking for ourselves by supporting homosexuality? You're the one trying to cram your beliefs down our throats by telling us it's wrong.
