3OH!3 And Ke$ha’s “My First Kiss”: Another Classic For The Great American Songbook

Some musical pairings are simply the stuff that legends are made of—think Bacharach and David. Lennon and McCartney. Simon and Garfunkel. And now we can toss 3OH!3 and Ke$ha onto that sacred list. For if you thought their recent Top 10 hit “Blah Blah Blah” was the end-all of this sexy pop fusion, best think again! The Bamboozle babe is back in action for “My First Kiss,” Boulder duo 3OH!3′s first single off upcoming third album Streets Of Gold. Wet your lips and head below for a listen.

Isn’t that just fantasy stardust, folks? Particularly heartwarming is the line “Excuse me, miss, but can I get you out your panties?” (Surprisingly, Ke$ha doesn’t sing that bit, despite her telling Rolling Stone, “I’m pretty sure in my past life I was a dude, because I talk like a dude and act like a dude.”)

And just what is it about this classy threesome that creates such musical magic? Is it the sassy lyrics? The biting wit? Maybe it’s just the fact that after we hear lines like “Your kiss is like whiskey, it gets me drunk/And I wake up in the morning with the taste of your tongue,” the burning sensation down in no-no land comes back.

Well, regardless, one thing is for certain—anytime Ke$ha’s involved, it’s always bound to be a memorable experience.

    A guy fell hard for this girl, and his name would be Mudd. I accept that. She sure makes it sound as if the music of her kiss is God having an orgasm. The song kicks ass with its panties down. (Let me see that coin slot, Bart.)

    But, I win. The game is five card stud. The “dude” reference allows me, one stud, to face off against four studs. Well, Nat, Sean, Ke$ha, and Rose. Technically, Rose is dust. I’m not going to let that stop me.

    The song, “Mr. Mudd and Mr. Gold,” was either given to me or stolen by me, when I talked with Townes Van Zandt, up in Minneapolis. Guy Clark was there, but he wasn’t paying attention.

    As everyone can see Ke$ha is the golden girl. I’ll call her Mr. Gold, to show my respect for her past life. And, to show my respect for her present life, I will turn over my final card. As everyone can see, I have four aces, and the Jack of Diamonds. I win.

    Townes did not know what the song meant, it came to him direct from heaven. I do. And, when I ask Rose, she will say, “I do.”

    Joy to you, Rose.

    what happened to the classic rap/punk pop 3Oh!3? I’m pretty sure this guy is sarcastic, but really pop is destroying good music!!
