An argument can be made that all pop music sounds the same. I don’t personally believe that, but when hearing the two current singles “Blow” by Ke$ha and “Till the World Ends” by Britney Spears, it’s hard to argue against it. After all, both tunes feature a chorus laden with exultant, syncopated “Whoa” sounds that would most certainly drive my parents (or anyone over twelve) nuts. (Full disclosure: I have mp3s of both songs and enjoy them greatly.)

So in the spirit of community building and general curiosity, I ask you, dear readers, to tell me which pop star does the “Whoa-oh-oh” thing best?

Videos for your reference after the jump…

And a third contender:

* lest it be overlooked, Ke$ha had a hand in writing both songs. She did not, however, have anything to do with the grape lady.

  1. Seriously, grape lady! Did you see the Family Guy take on the grape lady. Lol. I remember seeing it and thinking, where have I seen that before.

    On the topic of singing, though, I think that Britney actually can sing whereas Ke$ha, not so much. I could be wrong but I have both women on my iPod, so I can’t criticize too harshly.

  2. Really, I am so disappointed that the hotness that is James Van der Beek (no shame) would stoop to appearing in a music video for a gutter rat. I know that question was about whose “whoa” is better, but I got completely distracted by that little trash monkey seducing faux unicorns.

    I also vote Grape Lady.

  3. Unless I’m thinking if the wrong part of the song I thought Ke$ha says “This place about to blow-ooohh-ooohhh-oooh-ow” As in it’s just an extension of the word blow and she’s not saying whoa.

    Anyway, I like both songs so I can’t pick. lol
