Ke$ha writes better party music than anyone else--in part because she can craft a great hook, as well as because she has such a clear world view. "Die Young" revels in the same epicurean celebration of living in the moment and taking joy in the people around you that the singer often promotes. Ke$ha makes it clear that she wants this song to be a communal anthem by layering the vocal so it sounds like a sing-along. Not to mention, the production here is warmer than the singer's previous tracks, featuring not only a big beat but also acoustic guitars. This is music about friendship and liberation, and like all great pop music, the chorus sticks with you long after the party is over.
