Since taping episode one, we’ve had the same mix Tiffany made for the show. It starts out OK -- a little Afrojack, Boyfriend by Justin Bieber -- but by the time it gets to Born This Way by Lady Gaga (which, face it, we’ve all heard way too many times) I always think, “It’s time for a new Kathy 'load in' soundtrack.”
I didn’t want to put together a mix completely on my own. I felt that was a little ballsy being a newcomer around here. And despite my penchant for a little Katy Perry and Rihanna (OK, a lot of Katy Perry and Rihanna) my musical taste certainly has its eclectic, obscure, and indie patches. And I love a great mash-up.
So, I needed Tiffany’s input. I finally cornered her to get a new mix going. She explained that it was important to have music that was recognizable and would get audiences singing and dancing along.
“We want pump-up music,” Tiffany told me. “We don’t want to put people to sleep.”
Tiffany’s other edicts: lots of Pitbull “because I want to be Pitbull’s baby mama.” And definitely U Smile by Justin Bieber to appease Kathy. “She loves that song,” Tiffany explained.
Also, Tiffany added, “Don’t put in that Carly Rae Jespen song.” She was referring, of course, to Call Me Maybe. I snuck it in anyway, because I found a mash-up on Wednesday that was too terrific to pass up. (Don’t tell Tiffany!)
You can put this mix together and start playing it before you watch an episode of Kathy to simulate what it’s like to be in our studio audience.
So far, Kathy hasn’t provided her feedback. She’ll probably say, “Who changed my music?”
Uh, oh. I am affraid that the style selection of this show won't work in the long run. Initially I had hoped that Kathy would review the weeks pop topics and give her blunt and humorous take on them. It seems that the format has completely skated around that option. She tries throughout the hour to inject a far fetched connection between her unknown guests, and what she wants us to find funny about the conversations she is having with them. It makes for a very strained hour. They are not funny. AT ALL. I so wanted to enjoy this show, but if it tanks, I will still look forward to what she does best, dis' the over indulged!
Love Kathy, as always. Like that her mother is part of the show too. I like her music intro that she sang herself. I think it sounds like her voice, so not sure about the comments that it is synthesized or whatever you call it. I DO dislike the clapping to that music. It is ridiculous. Stop! Please! It is annoying in the first degree.
great show better then any sh-- out there, Funny as hell. all you hater can suck it.
Thanks Kathy actually being funny.
Do not like the show like I thought I would. Normally I like Kathy, but she acts so high and mighty, her gestures are obnoxious and condescending. She seems nervous and forcing it. I avoid the show at all costs.
I absolutely loved tonight's Kathy. I have watched the show every week and frankly I've had a difficult time getting the format and felt that having other comedians as guest would really help. Tonights show delivered because Kathy had 3 very funny comedians. I love the twins and they are a perfect match with Kathy and her humor. The twins should be permanent guests. The show keeps getting better every week. I love you Kathy.
