I Kissed a Girl – Jill Sobule (1995)
This American singer-songwriter made a provocative cultural statement with this single from her sophomore album. While she hasn’t yet been able to replicate the commercial success of this hit, Sobule has continued to release albums over the years. She’s had a penchant for collaborating on projects in multiple media, whether they be television, film, blogs, graphic art, theater, or music. In 20o8, she collaborated with a playwright and graphic artist on Prozak & the Platypus, a multimedia project which saw Sobule write and record the music. Her latest studio album came out in 2009.
