'your kisses are wasted on me' is everything you want in pop song: ridiculously cute vocalists, smart lyrics, crisp production, the backup vocal 'boy,' and the impossibly catchy chorus.
coming in at a succint 2:15, 'your kisses are wasted on me' is a throwback to phil spector's 60s girl groups. it's a brave move on their part, especially given today's market for overly-produced, manufactured pop. however, a great hook is still a great hook and 'your kisses are wasted on me' has hooks ad naseum. it's a fun, rousing, melodic, fists-in-the-air, quasi-feminist anthem with some nicely venemous lyrics ('boy, can't you see we're through? boy, i don't love you, you don't make me smile for awhile). sure, it falls a bit on the side of kitsch, but it's apparent the pipettes love what they do--the ladies embue 'your kisses are wasted on me' with verve, style and fun.
so throw on a mini skirt, some go-go boots, silver eye shadow and dance all night.
