18 November 2013 – Ke$ha – Your Love Is My Drug – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

So, picture that you are in 2010.  You’re familiar with “Tik Tok” and that drunk girl with the dollar sign in her name.  You’re listening to the radio… and this song, full of emotion but still light and fun, comes on the radio.

You, like I, are probably a little surprised you’re listening to the same artist.  You probably aren’t as offended as I was by the similarity in title to a Roxy Music title, but you’re probably at least a little impressed…. even if she does refer to herself as a “lovesick crackhead.”

One thing you probably didn’t know about this song – Kesha (Sebert – it’s her real name, without the dollar sign) co-wrote this song with her mother, Pebe.  Ke$ha actually started off as a songwriter for other people, and so she is the rare pop artist who writers her own music.  Which I would find more impressive, I guess, if she didn’t have the lyric “Brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack” to her credit.

Anyway, I was eventually sold on Ke$ha as a truly talented artist who, thanks in large part to her first single, doesn’t get enough credit for her talent.  So, enjoy this.
