Katy Perry’s title track from her sophomore release Teenage Dream finally surfaced… but is it as dreamy as her album cover art? Listen to the song below.[wpaudio url="http://idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/teenagedream.mp3" text="Katy Perry - Teenage Dream" dl="0"]
“You think I’m pretty without any makeup on / You think I’m funny when I get the punchline wrong,” sings a breathy Katy in one of the most precious love songs we’ve heard from the pop singer.
Katy continues toeing the line between minx and kitten with lyrics about giving it all away: “Let’s go all the way tonight / No regrets, just love / We can dance until we die / You and I will be young forever / You make me feel like I’m living in a teenage dream.”
Unfortunately, most teenage dreams today probably involve wussy vampires. Hopefully there aren’t any in the song’s video, which for all we know at this point is just four minutes of sexy nightswimming.
It’s sweet, catchy, and although we don’t think it will have quite the impact on pop culture that Perry’s “California Gurls” had, we think this pleasent slice of pop will be a welcome reprieve for those burnt out on all the various incarnations of Daisy Dukes, bikinis on top.
