?s California Girl music may appear to be mindlless and seductive but they are actually a narrative of a particlular place where women promise to be fun, good looking, and seductive that added to the charm of a place that the composer loves, California. The rendering or composition is just written in extreme mainstream pop that it appears to be a mindless innuendo of an industrial air product called din, masquerading to be a music.
It may have been deliberately to be written as such to convey the theme of abandonment from all the serious worries in this world and retreat to pleasure of the senses to have fun. It can be said that the music is epicurean in nature, that is, to indulge in today without worrying about tomorrow.
Unlike other music which speaks of romance, of what could have beens and deep love, relationships in Katy Perry’s California Girls are quite superficial. Basically, the way the composer put it, California Girls are fun to those who likes fun and disdain serious talk. While the lyrics does not talk about serious matters, one can take consolation that the characters in the music are not in conflict. In fact, it promotes peace, fun, love (albeit superficial) and partying that makes them unforgettable. It implies resignation to the whole system that nothing can be done about it nor change it, so it would be better not to think about it and to have fun. The less diplomatic way to put it is the lyrics, tend to bury their head in the sand as a response to the social ills that is happening around.
No, Katy Perry’s “California Girls” are not the right people to talk about serious stuff. But if one has decided to take a break from this world and have a retreat to refresh himself, he can surely count on Katy Girls California Girls. After
