I do not like katy perry. while her claim to fame is a catchy number, at its core it doesnt exactly do much to negate societal stereotypes about, well, girls kissing girls (for gosh sakes, she’s never even tried it!). that being said, i do know a ton of leslies who go crazy when “i kissed a girl” comes on at midnight at the bar on castro, so perhaps it’s ok that she’s making an appearance here.
katy covers one of my fave songs of the year, the lush and fantastic “electric feel”, and actually does a pretty decent job. Acoustic, pared down, and quite enjoyable: Katy Perry – Electric Feel (MGMT cover)
The real deal: MGMT – Electric Feel
