I can't tell you how happy I am that a new Katie Perry song is out. I have been waiting for this moment since California Gurls dropped. This probably isn't what you think, either.
I have been on the verge of total insanity since I heard that song. I'm talking hallucinations, insomnia...the works. IT WON'T GET OUT OF MY HEAD. I would perform my own neurosurgery if I thought I could locate and successfully remove the offending portion of my brain.
Before you say, "Well quit listening to the radio station playing it," consider that it's the type of song played in Wal-Mart, restaurants, and gyms, and is generally unavoidable.
Trust me, I resorted to only listening to my iPod and NPR in an effort to avoid hearing it. But short of moving into a cave, you JUST CAN'T GET AWAY FROM THAT SONG!!!
So, I'm delighted that a new, marginally less catchy song can now be played 785 times a day to appease the screaming tweens Katy Perry addiction. I'm also delighted to report that I can't remember the chorus, hook, or any of the verses to Teenage Dream. And I also plan to keep it that way.
I'm still whistling the Andy Griffith song to avoid thinking too much about **you know what** while I write about it, but the Sun is shining brighter than it has in months.
