Aural Only: Ke$ha

You asked for it, and we’re finally caving in! We’ve had several requests to add Ke$ha‘s “Blow” to our Weekly Top Ten countdown within the past couple of weeks, and we threw them on the back burner for two simple reasons—a) the official video hasn’t made its debut, and b) this is probably one of the most irritating Ke$ha song ever created.

As much as we make fun of ol’ Grundgetta, we’ve got to admit that there were much better potential singles on her Cannibal project. After all, this was a motherfuckin’ rerelease! She should have taken a risk and shown off a different side of her “artistry” with a song like “The Harold Song”. Or at least busted out with “Grow A Pear” and capitalized on the hilarity of the word “mangina”… Alas, if the record label says “Blow” is the single, then there’s nothing much we can do about it.

Now, last but not least, let’s address the issue of the music video (or current lack thereof). We’d argue that Ke$ha isn’t known for being a visual artist. Her music videos aren’t going to convince you to like her song more, as is the case with some Beyonce or Lady Gaga tracks. Of course, maybe we’re wrong about this. If the video for “Blow” comes out and somehow blows everyone’s collective mind, we’ll gladly add this song back onto our charts… Because, duh, it’s totally not going to last for more than one week.

UPDATE: Okay, so we lied. Maybe Ke$ha is a visual artist. The music video for “Blow” just leaked, and it involves unicorns and James Van Der Beek of Dawson’s Creek and DILF Pants fame. She just won ten million points in our score books. We’re not even kidding.
