The song is in D minor, but that chord first comes in at the 7th beat of the 16 bar progression. So when the song ends cold on the first note of that progression, it ends on Bb. This gives the listener a subtle feeling of an unfinished song, even though it ended on the 1st beat, which is typical of most songs. By not resolving the chord, the listener is more apt to hum the song and therefore more likely to need to listen to it again.

--Why Ke$ha went #1... and why it could've been bigger.... Also, chick looks like this:


Seems Ke$ha sucks at SEO; might as well name herself ßrét ’ªrvË.

My favorite thing about her is her expressive delivery. She's not a great rapper, but her lines sound thought-out and natural. Especially the "I gotta say..." in the chorus of "Boots & Boys," which is probably actually "BØØt$ + Boiz."

Must have back problems, always sleeping in bathtubs like that.

I dont think I will be humming this.

I am so old.

Let's see...she can't rap well.
She can't sing (hence the autotuning).

So it's a hit because:
1) of how she looks
2) it has provacative lyrics
3) the chorus is catchy and easily repeated

(P.S. I'm not even a fan of how she looks.)

Actually K$sha gave justice to the song. I mean the song fits her personality.

Ke$ha is a nice girl. she looks very sexy and has a adoable voice. but she reminds me just a lil bit of sexy shakira.
I don't like the Remix link by John.
