Here on The World Forgot, in an effort to stay ever pithy and, as the youngsters call it, ‘hip’ I sometimes in an oblique way allude to the idea that I don’t like certain artists. In the past such artists have included John Mayer, Rihanna, and more recently Katy Perry. And while in a general sense my objections to Katy Perry still hold true I must confess that her latest single has caught my ear on more than one occasion. I could have kept this information to myself and only listened to Hot n’ Cold with headphones on, pretending all along I was nodding my head to new tracks by The Killers or some sweet Radiohead bootlegs, but at some point the lies would have caught up with me. And a liar is just not the type of blogger that I want to be.
mp3 : Katy Perry – Hot n’ Cold
This track hails from Katy’s album One of the Boys (amazon) (itunes) none of which I can really recommend beyond this single. Sorry Katy, but if I’m attempting to come clean about my affection for Hot n’ Cold I need to have integrity in not endorsing the rest of your work.
Random questions. Are there some photos out there that make you double check the internet to reassure yourself that Katy Perry is in no way related to Zooey Deschanel? Does this track remind anyone else of Cher’s late nineties track Believe? Does anyone else now need to admit they liked the track Believe as well?
