I kind of took a little hiatus from doing the song picks of the week. I’ve gotta get back into the groove! 🙂
There’s always an artist that benefits from singing a new single on the Grammy Awards. Last year, it was Gaga with Born This Way; this year it’s Katy Perry with Part of Me.
For me, her Grammy performance was my first exposure to the new song from the re-release of her album Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection.
Now I’ll place a little disclaimer: I’m not really much of a Katy Perry fan. I honestly don’t know why, I mean, I love pop music. I love Gwen Stefani, Britney Spears, Madonna, and Lady Gaga, but Ms. Perry never stuck a tune for me.
For example, I downloaded her single E.T. a while ago, and then I got bored of it very quickly. Her songs are catchy, but they don’t have much replay value for me.
This song, however, is what will change my opinion.
Besides her wacky-colored, wavy hair in her Grammy performance, I was hooked to the song (in a good way!) Listen for yourself…
It’s a song with a good beat that pretty much blasts Russel Brand (her ex-husband). Maybe songs about breakups are just what’s best for artists, I mean, look at Adele…
Good song, Ms. Perry. If your next album is composed of Russell-inspired songs, you may have another hit… even with me!
