Biography

LET US write the histories of pop music (the plural has a certain importance). A history at once oral/aural but not linear or progressive. A history that snakes and twists and turns back on itself, a history of ruptures and wrong-turnings. But let us not start with The Beatles.

Let us not speak their name.

There is a traditional historiography of popular music which in some way or ... Read more in Amazon's The Pipettes Store

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic single! 8 May 2006
By M. Lohrke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
'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.

3.0 out of 5 stars second song is a rip 22 Jun 2006
By Boxodreams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I read about this somewhere and picked up the single. It certainly is infectious and girl-groupie but with harder drums than you might be used to hearing. It's a little choppy and primitive and English, but it's like some of the old girl-group punk back in the early 80's. Voice of the Beehive, anyone? The second cut, "Dirty Mind," however, is a COMPLETE ripoff of the B52s "Roam" riff. you don't get any points for the too obvious.
