What's the story?
Continuing their musical collaboration, electropop duo 3OH!3 has cut another tune with pop singer Ke$ha: "MY FIRST KISS." This time, the guys are in the driver's seat, getting top billing on the song while Ke$ha serves as special guest; the opposite was true on their earlier tune "Blah Blah Blah." In the new track, the three sing about a first kiss that quickly turns mature, with heavy make-out sessions under bleachers and in back seats of cars. While there's no swearing or graphic sexual descriptions beyond the line "I want to get you out your panties," the song is highly suggestive of more mature sex acts that go beyond just kissing. In addition, mention is made of a kiss tasting like whiskey.
Is it any good?
"My First Kiss" is among the catchier 3OH!3 songs, with a cool hook that revolves around rapid hand-claps. The lyrics are delivered in the guys' signature talk-sing format, with Ke$ha adding more of the same from the female perspective. In another classic 3OH!3 move, the song eventually crescendos into a big synth-pop finish that will likely get it plenty of spins in the dance clubs.
