But can you ever be late? “Lock the door, lower the blinds and fire up the smoke machine.” Leave it to an episode of Glee for me to discover “Let’s Have a Kiki” by the Scissor Sisters. I have their first two albums but missed their third and now I know about their fourth and perhaps last album. When Kurt (Chris Colfer), Rachel (Lea Michele) and Isabelle (Sarah Jessica Parker) started singing and dancing I thought whatever this is I like it. Finally Rachel and Kurt are having a NY experience: a house party with drag queens and Carrie from “Sex and the City!” Hahaha. The mashup of Turkey Lurkey Time with the song isn’t too annoying.
The Scissor Sisters haven’t released an official video for the song but one was made by the Videodrome Discotheque which was approved by Jake Shears and has a collage of Liberace, RuPaul, RuPaul’s Drag Race, Cher, Queen, Donna Summer, Candy Darling, Dressed to Kill, The Boys in the Band, Myra Breckinridge, The Wiz, Boy George,Showgirls, Perfect, The Phantom of Paradise, Cher’s workout video, Richard Simmons, Lisztomania, Can’t Stop the Music, The Golden Girls and possibly more. Oh and Ana Matronic’s intro/message is longer and funnier so watch it!
Let’s Have a Kiki!
