Hey Look, Same Song! Did Kesha & Katy Get Duped? Or Did We?
OK OK. We all know pop music is written for mass consumption, usually by some balding guy out in L.A. who looks and acts just like Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder. And that’s fine. The songs are great and we appreciate that gentleman’s services. But what happens when Mr. Producer forgets which songs he’s already sold off?
Apparently, you get two (count ‘em) two number one singles. In this case, [lastfm]Ke$ha[/lastfm]‘s “TiK ToK” and [lastfm]Katy Perry[/lastfm]‘s “California Gurls”. Listen NOW!
Listen to this mash up by DJplaceboing showing the unavoidable similarities between the two hit songs. Personally, I love the mash up and couldn’t care less that some guy with hair implants and five Ferraris in his twelve car garage is collecting double royalties.
That’s Amerikey, dammit!
You know whose “California Gurls” mash up is way better though? DJ Toro, that’s who. He’s got [lastfm]Kat DeLuna[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Fo Onassis[/lastfm] tearin’ it up on his!
