Hear Katy Perry "Roar"

 

Katy Cat's will be clawing at their scratch posts for this one. Katy Perry's first single "Roar" has arrived a few days early from her soon to be released third album Prism.  The song is perfect Katy Perry pop that sounds new and fresh for 2013. It doesn't alienate old listeners and doesn't try to be something groundbreaking for new listeners. Miss Perry has the knack for making music that is current, which is one of her greatest strengths. With production by Dr. Luke once again ("Hot and Cold," "California Gurls") it seems the good doctor still has the prescription for a hit song. With lyrics like "I got the eye of the tiger/the fire/dancing through the fire/'cause I am a champion/and you’re gonna hear me roar/louder, louder than a lion/'cause I am a champion/and you’re gonna hear me roar" it seems this uplifting, radio friendly piece of pop will lift to number one in no time. Listen below:


Katy Perry – “Roar”

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath

scared to rock the boat and make a mess
so I sat quietly, agree politely
I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me passed the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

You held me down but I got up,
already brushing off the dust
you hear my voice you hear that sound
like thunder gonna shake the ground
you held me down but i got up
get ready 'cause I've had enough
I see it all, i see it now

I got the eye of the tiger the fire
dancing through the fire, 'cause I am a champion
and you’re gonna hear me roar
louder, louder than a lion
'cause I am a champion
and you’re gonna hear me roar
and you’re gonna hear me roar

Now I’m floating like a butterfly
stinging like a bee i earned the stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero


You held me down but I got up,
already brushing off the dust
you hear my voice you hear that sound
like thunder gonna shake the ground
you held me down but I got up
get ready 'cause i’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger the fire
dancing through the fire, ‘cause i am a champion
and you’re gonna hear me roar
louder, louder than a lion
'cause i am a champion
and you’re gonna hear me roar
and you’re gonna hear me roar
and you’re gonna hear me roar

roar roar roar roar roaar

I got the eye of the tiger the fire
dancing through the fire, ‘cause i am a champion
and you’re gonna hear me roar
louder, louder than a lion
'cause i am a champion
and you’re gonna hear me roar
and you’re gonna hear me roar
and you’re gonna hear me roar
