Cascada Ignore Lady Gaga Long Enough To Jack Katy Perry With “San Francisco”

Robbie Daw / May 10, 2011

It’s been so long since Cascada copped Lady Gaga’s sound — case in point: “Evacuate The Dancefloor,” “Pyromania,” “Night Nurse,” etc. etc. — we were starting to wonder what was up! But sadly for the “Judas” songstress, the German dance act appears to have shifted its attention to another chart-topping American pop tart: Katy Perry. Watch Cascada’s “San Francisco” video below, and decide whether or not you think California gurls should be snapping Natalie Horler & Co. with their beach towels.

It’s been so long since we’ve heard an original-sounding single from Cascada (have we ever, really?) that it’s a wonder how this borderline karaoke act keeps getting away with their sound-alike shenanigans. But, hey — it’s been a full year since the release of Katy’s “California Gurls.” Surely everyone’s already forgotten it by now, right?

“Wake me up in San Francisco,” Horler chirps over the chorus. More appropriate lyrics might be “wake me up when the next NOW compilation arrives.” After all, how’s a girl to decide what to sing next?

We eagerly await your variations of Britney Spears’ Femme Fatale jams this time next year, Cascada!
