Tasty Tracks of 2013: Girls/Girls/Boys by Panic! At The Disco

"Girls/Girls/Boys" by Panic! At The Disco may be the sexiest single released this year. Its lustful air works for a few reasons: lead singer Brendon Urie's performance, the disco-rock instrumentation, and the way the lyrics empower both Urie and his love interest. In a year of message songs about sexuality and tracks with troubling lyrics about sex, "Girls/Girls/Boys" is a better recording for being neither. It is not concerned with a cause, though it does present at least one bisexual character, and it manages to be erotic without verging on manipulative or disconcerting. As such, it offers emo-pop at its finest: sturdy songwriting with a strong production and a dash of drama.
