Song of the Day #2,548: ‘Cool For the Summer’ – Demi Lovato

demi_lovato_cool_summerSetting the boys aside for a moment, here’s Demi Lovato with a summer anthem that hints at a secret romance between two women.

Lovato has taken some heat not for the song’s subject matter but because some find it a little too close to Katy Perry territory. Indeed, it does sound like something Ms. Perry would record, though the fact that this song (like many of Perry’s) was written by hit-maker Max Martin is likely to blame.

Besides, I like this song a lot more than ‘I Kissed a Girl,’ the Perry track to which it has been most often compared.

Better chorus, better production. And Lovato (who is bi herself) sounds like she really means it.

[Verse 1]
Tell me what you want
What you like
It’s okay
I’m a little curious too
Tell me if it’s wrong
If it’s right
I don’t care
I can keep a secret could, you?

[Pre-Chorus]
Got my mind on your body
And your body on my mind
Got a taste for the cherry
I just need to take a bite
Don’t tell your mother
Kiss one another
Die for each other
We’re cool for the summer
(Ha)

[Chorus]
(Ooh, Ooh)
Take me down into your paradise
Don’t be scared cause I’m your body type
Just something that we wanna try
Cause you and I
We’re cool for the summer

[Verse 2]
Tell me if I won
If I did
What’s my prize?
I just wanna play with you, too
Even if they judge
Fuck it, I’ll do the time
I just wanna have some fun, with you

[Pre-Chorus]
Got my mind on your body
And your body on my mind
Got a taste for the cherry
I just need to take a bite
Don’t tell your mother
Kiss one another
Die for each other
We’re cool for the summer
(Ha)

[Chorus]
(Ooh, Ooh)
Take me down into your paradise
Don’t be scared cause I’m your body type
Just something that we wanna try
Cause you and I
We’re cool for the summer
(Ha)
We’re cool for the summer
We’re cool for the summer

[Bridge]
Shhhh…don’t tell your mother
Got my mind on your body
And your body on my mind
Got a taste for the cherry
I just need to take a bite

[Chorus]
Take me down
Take me down into your paradise
(Done be scared) Don’t be scared cause I’m your body type
Just something that we wanna try (wanna try)
Cause you and I (you and I)
We’re cool for the summer

[Outro]
(Take me down) We’re cool for the summer
(Don’t be scared) cause I’m your body type
(Just something) Just something that we wanna try
Cause you and I (you and I)
We’re cool for the summer
(Ha) Ooh
We’re cool for the summer

    While the subject matter may be invading “Kissed a Girl” territory, the musical ripoff is really of “Teenage Dream.” Meanwhile, to the extent any comparison is warranted, I’m shocked that you find this better than “I kissed a girl,” as the Perry song is far more interesting and inventive, particularly from a musical standpoint. For me, there is no contest as to the better song.

    I’ve never liked ‘I Kissed a Girl’ so it isn’t really much of a contest for me.
