This Ain't The Jonas Brothers

Okay unless you live under a rock, I am sure you have heard this song. It's been number one for six weeks.

It's a catchy little tune, you can't deny it. That beat stretches from your ears to your toes and the next thing you know you're bobbing your head and shakin' your groove thing.

Only one small problem. You are the mother of three impressionable young children. You can't go be-bopping around town in the family truckster belting out I kissed a girl and I liked it. There are just too many questions that are going to come up.

It felt so wrong, it felt so right

I can't get this song out of my head. I'll be totally honest with you.... It makes me want to dance. Yes, I am a thirty-six year old responsible wife and mom. I am so not MTV's demographic. I mean I'm a Republican for crying out loud! I can't be listening to this crap.

Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it

Damn you Katy Perry! I want to kick your short skirt wearing, cherry chap stick loving, experimenting little ass. Right after I finish jamming to your dumb song.

I saw you on my friend, Katie's blog. I was checkin people out, hope you don't mind. May I just say that you are absolutely hilarious! I love reading your post. I laugh out loud every time, very entertaining, crafty, and creative. Thanks!! I would like to add you, if that is ok. I love your remote post. Just like us, we had the same problem. We do have the universal remote and it works great. For the TV, DVR-HD Direct Tv reciever, surround sound, dvd player. We still have separete one for PS3 and Wii however.

Ha ha, our littles (and me) are loving this song at the moment too! And I never worry about what the kids might read into a song's words... they hardly listen to the words from what I can tell, it's the tune that catches them! And anyway, I have told them there is nothing wrong with kissing a girl... as long as ya like it! LOL

Not only do I like it, too, I bought the whole dang CD! My boys tend to zone out about it though, what with the whole thing about how they think girls are gross anyway still! Ha!

I guess I do live under a rock because that was a first for me! And you're right, it is catchy! Even if her lip synching is off.

I heard about this song on some tv talk show - a political one. Maybe the Factor? Who knows! Anyway - they were debating about if this is going to influence kids to experiment or not.

I haven't heard it other than on the show but - it did have a catchy tune!

Oh my gosh, April! I first heard that song on SYTYCD. And I turned it off half-way through, because I was like, "Come on! This is the trash this girl came up with? And look at her! With her little pin-up esque do! How trashy!"

And then I heard it a second time. And a third. And wouldn't you know it, I was hooked. Stupid song. I can't even sing it out loud for fear my husband's going to think I'm batting for the other team!

Love you too! (From the previous post...)

It's even better when your 14 year old sings it.

I have to constantly tell my 5 year old he can't sing "ride a cowboy"..

Oh my gosh. I am sooooooo under a big ole rock. I have NO IDEA what you are talking about!

Becky said...

Obviously my opinion save the hate mail, but...

Sorry to say...that song is crap.

And even more sorry to say that this is where our kids are headed...yuck.

Darling, if you need me to confiscate your ipod and wash it white as snow, well I'm sure we could hook ya up with some groovy yet completely straight PG tunes!

Love ya...
And yes I did say groovy.

I think this song is on at the gym every single time I'm there!

I don't think it will influence girls to become lesbians, but it will most definitely encourage drunk college girls to make out with each other in order to get attention from guys. Remember Spring Break?

I think Jill Sobule's "I Kissed a Girl" from a few years back is so much better.

But this new one ain't that bad!

Julie said...

OMG! I totally felt the same way. First time I heard it I changed the station and thought oh God, what crap is this that my kids can tune into on the radio...then the second time I heard it I realized I liked it.

Damn song!
