Ur So Gay Is Anything But
Can’t wait for new Lily Allen music any longer? Katy Perry has got you covered. Her debut EP, Ur So Gay is a fun and fresh take on the female pop music genre. The title track Ur So Gay is a tongue-in-cheek ode to a certain famous ex-boyfriend and his questionable sexuality. While Perry’s soulful vocals are exceptional on the song, what makes Ur So Gay enjoyable are the lyrics. Perry croons lines such as “I can’t believe I feel in love with someone who wears more makeup than me” and “you need SPF 45 just to stay alive,” making Ur So Gay the right combination of facetiousness and kitsch. Also on the album is a cover of The Outfield’s Your Love. Perry’s version, titled Use Your Love, gives a new take on the song by amping up the guitars and adding a heavier rock edge to the 80s classic. Ur So Gay is a great preview of what is to come from Katy Perry in the near future.

Forever in Motion-The Beautiful Unknown by Lauren Fogazzi
Foverinmotion’s CD, The Beautiful Unknown, is a blend of indie rock and folk pop. The lyrics are full of emotion and reveal a story about love and life. Each song is written from the heart but the tempo never changes throughout the CD. It remains at a constant slow pace which really conveys a feeling of sadness to the listener. As soon as it seems like the next song is going to differ from the last, it curves back. Some songs like ‘Avalanche’ and “Talu’ start out strong but then end slow and in a depressing manner.
Brendon, the lead singer, has a strong voice but The Beautiful Unknown just doesn’t have the charisma to keep me listening.
