Kept putting Firework on the office radio as a joke and now I unironically love it, ngl

Big abstain from me. Think I’ve heard maybe 4 songs out of that list

Think I’ve heard 8 or so, still loads that definitely don’t exist :confused:

Firework has one of the best pre-choruses of the last 15 years.

The ones I’ve heard pinpoint a specific time in my life (working 6-2, filling produce and listening to local radio before the store opened). Weird how music has that about it.

She seems like she has a lot of fun with what she does

:man_shrugging:

Not sure her voice is that great, I mean she can belt it out but it just seems to occupy this space where it’s at volume 3 or 11. Maybe it’s the production and stuff.

Out of her contemporaries she’s below swift, Beyoncé and Rihanna for me.

I’m never gonna sit down and listen to a Katy Perry album or anything but I won’t be annoyed if one of her songs comes on the radio. I’m a sucker for a big chorus and she’s got some absolute belters. She can have a 3.

Probably unfair to use the term “subjected” but that’s essentially how I’ve felt about her as she’s the first artist that my kids ever really loved. As a result I’ve heard a lot of her stuff. And whilst not really being my thing and I would never choose to listen to her, there’s some good memories there and some pretty good songs too. I didn’t go and see her on this Prism tour with the wife and kids and really wish I had now.

3 for the first 3 “Katy Perry” albums.

Far too many slow jams, but the bangers BANG

Wouldn’t stick her on often or anything, but she has a bunch of absolute bangers and seems like a good egg. Solid 3.

Underrated half-time show, that one. The 2010s was not a great decade for them in general but think KP’s was up there with Beyoncé and the Shakira/J-Lo one last year for best of the bunch.
