This week’s Song of the Week is Katy Perry’s new single, ‘I Kissed a Girl’, from her upcoming album ‘One of the Boys’. This non-PC single will get no airplay in parts of the country, the even more non-PC track ‘UR So Gay (And You Don’t Even Like Boys)’ is apparently Madonna’s favorite song right now. ‘UR So Gay’ was released as the title track of Perry’s first EP last November. While many of the lyrics are adult, in a sarcastic/humorous, Alanis Morissette kind of way, the music is catchy and engaging.

Perry, born Katy Hudson, started out as a gospel singer, but has adopted a pop rock sound that is reminiscent of ’80’s bands like Heart. [Her cover of The Outfield’s ‘Use Your Love’ is an improvement on the original.] ‘I Kissed a Girl’ is available on iTunes. You can check out the single and several more at her MySpace Page or her website. Not youngster appropriate though….
