Why We Need to Have A Kiki… SongTag Story Style

Posted by
|

I really liked the SongTag assignment that I found but when I started crafting mine, I realized that I was creating a story basically, so I decided to make a new assignment, based off of the StoryTag assignment.

For my SongTag Story, I used some of my favorite guilty pleasure music to craft a story about a man whose boyfriend has cheated on him while being flirtatious at the clubs and how his friends help him deal with getting over his now ex.

When I first saw the assignment I thought about doing a Sondheim songtag but I do not have a ton of Sondheim in my iTunes library and while flipping through my music collection I found I Don’t Wanna Know by Cheyenne Jackson, one of my favorite songs which I wanted to use. I then decided on Lets Have A Kiki by The Scissor Sisters but then needed to figure out a way to link the two. I then picked McArthur Park from the Priscilla Queen Of The Desert Original Broadway Cast Recording, one of my favorite Broadway cast recordings which features some of my favorite actors prortaying Australian drag queens. When I was unable to encorperate it, I chose I Will Survive from the same CD and added it to the end. I then decided to start my track with Don’t Be Jealous Of My Boogie by RuPaul to help set up the story. Wanting to roundout my guilty pleasure mix, I chose Shady by Adam Lambert.

I had all of my songs in my iTunes library so I imported them into Garage Band where I edited them together into one track.

Here are the lyrics for the entire mashup. 

It’s Time To Have A Kiki

 Jealous of My Boogie- RuPaul

Hey DJ
Love the way
I lose my inhibitions when you spin
And I don’t care if people stare
I’d rather boogie than try to fit in

Turn it up, let ‘em scrutinize (I know you’re watching)
Way up, ’cause the night is mine (i know you’re watching)
Turn it up, lemme scandalize (I know you’re watching)
Yeah, up under flashing lights

(No–don’t–be)Don’t be jealous of my boogie, don’t be jealous of my boogie
You can say that you are not, but I always see you lookin’
Don’t be jealous of my boogie, don’t be jealous of my boogie
You can say that you are not, but I always see you

Shady-Adam Lambert

you.

Sorry I’m kinda drunk
But did you just say your game was brand new?

No I ain’t broken but I, I need a fix
That satisfaction when I, I get my kicks
I’m up all night
I’m out of sight
Don’t turn on the light
Cause I’m feeling so shady lately

Come on and take me underground
Deep under the street
Come on and take me, take me down
The freaks like us can meet
Turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, turn it way up
Don’t stop the beat

Come on and turn me, turn me on
Cause I’m feeling so shady lately

Ah! Ah!
Gonna go and get me a shot
Gonna knock it back forget all my blues
Yeah that really hits the spot
I’m feeling pretty fierce in my dancin’ shoes (yeah)

No I ain’t broken but I, I need a fix
That satisfaction when I

I Don’t Wanna Know- Cheyenne Jackson

I know that’s true

No matter what, can’t stop loving you
Careless with me, baby, from the start
Pushing me, breaking my world apart
Deep in my heart there’s a scar now, telling a story of us
I keep coming back to you, planning attack on you, love

I dont wanna know, I don’t wanna know
If you slept in your bed for a week
No, I don’t wanna know, I don’t wanna know
Why the scent on your neck isn’t me
It’s not fair, why should I care
‘Cause I made it clear that you’re not what I need
I don’t wanna know, but I can’t let it go
I give up had enough wasn’t me for you and me

Straight to my guts there you go again

You’re killing me don’t even know it when

Casting a spell with the lick of your lips

You pretend you’re completely oblivious
Deep in my heart there’s a scar now, telling a story of us.

I

Lets Have A Kiki- Scissor Sisters

I know exactly what we need

Let’s have a kiki, I wanna have a kiki
Lock the doors, tight
Let’s have a kiki, motherfucker
I’m gonna let you have it
Let’s have a kiki
I wanna have a kiki
Dive, turn, work
Let’s have a kiki
We’re gonna serve, and work and turn
And h-h-honey

A kiki is a party, for calming all your nerves
We’re spilling tea, and dishing just desserts one may deserve
And though the sun is rising, few may choose to leave
So shade that lid and we’ll all bid adieu to your ennui

Let’s have a kiki, I wanna have a kiki
Lock the doors, tight
Let’s have a kiki, motherfucker
I’m gonna let you have it
Let’s have a kiki
I wanna have a kiki
Dive, turn, work
Let’s have a kiki
We’re gonna serve, and work and turn
And h-h-honey

Oh,

I Will Survive- Priscilla Queen of The Desert OBC

Oh no, not I, I will survive
As long as I know how to love
I know I’ll stay alive

I’ve got all my life to live
I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive, I will survive, I will survive
