3OH!3 Featuring Ke$ha - My First Kiss

09 October Critic Jonni 0 Comments

This song was stuck in my head today, funny how I had "Blah Blah Blah" in my head yesterday, and now this. 3OH!3, as I covered yesterday, are a 2-piece band consisting of Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte. They used to be very popular in the UK, but in the last year or two they haven't been doing that well. They remind me a bit of LMFAO, only I prefer 3OH!3. I hope they have a good hit around the corner, they need a good comeback. Maybe another collaboration with Ke$ha would help? Who knows, but I'm hoping they don't disappear. As for Ke$ha well her real name is Kesha Sebert. It looks like an "I'll feature on your track if you feature on mine", this made me surprised, but it worked so well. Ke$ha is still going strong and I really doubt she'll disappear.

"My First Kiss" was written by Lukasz Gottwald, Sean Foreman, Nathaniel Motte and Benny Blanco. All of which have appeared on my blog a number of times. The song is about really liking a girl and having your first kiss with that person, as described by Sean Foreman. The song got to number 7 in the UK, although it should've done better!

The music video isn't the best, but it's not the worst either. It's mainly a performance piece, that looks like most of the budget went into editing. As for the narrative side, there isn't much, but they have edited it intricately.

There is a lot of explicit content, and a few surprising bits as well, that you wouldn't expect to see, how they managed to get it shown in the UK, I don't know how but they did. It relates to the song pretty well, and I like how there is no age discrimination, which is extremely clever.

However I haven't got a lot to say about it, Ke$ha's part is pretty small, and everything has a performance side to things such as the chorus bit where they have the 3OH!3 logo behind them.

The song is extremely catchy, however the video is lacking, it relates to the song but I wanted a lot more, and it's just not there. However they have tried to do their best and I don't think it's their fault for the budget they had, so they have done well considering. Hence why I'm giving it this rating.
