"With its peppy hand claps, upper-register bass lines and shimmering guitars, 'Kissing Katy' would have been right at home on a Spongetones record." -- Bill Kopp, Musoscribe, contributing editor at Goldmine: The Collectors Record and CD Marketplace, and Jazz & Prog Editor at BLURT magazine.

"'Kissing Katy' is a peppy piece of teen-beat pop spiked with bubblegumm-y handclaps." -- Beverly Paterson, Something Else Reviews

In regular rotation on WERA 96.7 FM, Arlington, VA


Kissing Katy and it’s seeming like a huge mistake
Realizing though I’m dreaming I don’t want to wake
Where‘d this come from
Am I that dumb
How much can one take?
Who’s the last one I’d be needing in my perfect world
Who’s the perfect poster picture of a monster girl
Who in my head?
In my dream bed
Lies so impossibly curled
Katy is not without her appeal
She just can’t appeal to me
I can’t care what those lovely blue eyes 
Might conceal
Kissing Katy and I’m dreaming I don’t want to wake
Kissing Katy and it’s seeming like a huge mistake
