The other day I was picking up a pizza at Langbest pizza, and the video was playing for Katy Perry's California Gurls.  I must say, I was really impressed with all the inter-textual references in this song and video.* Everything from Lollipop, to the Beach Boy's, and well of course Dogg's gansta rap.

I grew up listening to American 50s music, thanks to my dad. I know the words to just about all of those "golden oldies." And so I love it when the sweetness of that time period catches up to the smoothness of the present.  

*It has nothing at all to do with the fact that I am from California.
