Who knew Mikhail Bakhtin and Julia Kristeva influenced Britney Spears? Her new stuff is highly intertextual. Oh, and, sports sports sports, sporty sport.
You're allowed to blogg about non-Sports, Brains! And put your links lower in the post, for some reason they never work in the top few lines (above the word "valley!" on the side)
Here's the clickable link:http://www.slate.com/id/2214106/Wow, I love the montage of all the other songs called "If you see kay."They say: "In 1982, the Canadian band April Wine released a lousy song called If You See Kay". Lousy? I love the lyric "Her legs were long & shapely / I could tell her love was HOT."
You know, that WAS my initial reaction when I saw it on the huffpost, that-the spelling out FUCK in that moment in the song didn't make any sense, except as a childish gag: "All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy." Bizarre lyric.It's heartening that none of its earlier incarnations make sense BOTH in context & as a reason to slip in an obscenity. Only James Joyce's doggerel makes sense both ways (not too much to ask from poems & lyrics, actually):If you see kayTell him he maySee you in teaTell him from me.
