Song of the Day #3,000: ‘I Kissed a Girl’ – Katy Perry

katy_perry_kissed_girlTo acknowledge my 3,000th Song of the Day, I’m featuring the song that was at #1 on the Billboard charts back when I started the Song of the Day series on July 25, 2008.

Yes, Katy Perry had just released her breakthrough single eight years ago when I first posted a Smiths song called ‘I Started Something I Couldn’t Finish’ and wondered if I could keep it up for a week.

Hard to believe I’m a year and a half away from finishing out not just a week but a decade. Have to start planning ahead for that one.

Verse 1
This was never the way I planned
Not my intention
I got so brave, drink in hand
Lost my discretion
It’s not what I’m used to
Just want to try you on
I’m curious for you
Caught my attention

Chorus
I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it
It felt so wrong, it felt so right
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

Verse 2
No, I don’t even know your name
It doesn’t matter
You’re my experimental game
Just human nature
It’s not what good girls do
Not how they should behave
My head gets so confused
Hard to obey

Chorus
I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it
It felt so wrong, it felt so right
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

Bridge
Us girls we are so magical
Soft skin, red lips, so kissable
Hard to resist so touchable
Too good to deny it
Ain’t no big deal, it’s innocent

Chorus
I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it
It felt so wrong, it felt so right
Don’t mean I’m in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

    Congratulations on reaching yet another blog milestone!

    Hard to believe you began this blog before we had elected our first Black president. I hope we can look back 8 years from now and say “I elected a girl for president and I liked it!” šŸ˜„
