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.
