Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night (TGIF)" Remix Single Cover Kind Of Makes Me Like Her Better

And, finally, right? I mean, this is like the best song off Teenage Dream (next to, of course, "Teenage Dream").

    This should've been a single before the wretched E.T. (Still don't understand how that made it to #1, but props to her for it). I think she could possibly go two more singles deep with "Peacock" (if radio would dare play it) and "Hummingbird Heartbeat".

    I agree about ET - how did it get to number 1? Kanye!??!?!? W T F?

    Hummingbird heartbeat is the best song on the whole album. TGIF comes second. I absolutely hate E.T....
    I'm a weirdo :\

    I love that we agree that TGIF is the best song off teenage dream other than teenage dream.

    Pure J.Me, I don't mind "E.T." that much, though I pinpointed the other day what it rips off and now I've forgotten it again. "Hummingbird Heartbeat" is good - and let's face it, only half that album is any good - but "Last Friday Night" has been one of my faves from day one.

    Joshua, the label/Dr. Luke probably thought she wouldn't be able to sustain a string of #1s without a little something extra added on?

    Pomai, not so weird. I despite "Peacock" and that "Circle The Drain" trash, myself.

    The Prophet, awwww - bromance.

    I think this is going to be a big hit for her; good single choice. And D'Luv totally agree with about half the album being good. All the ballads/mid-tempos on the 2nd half get pretty boring.

    Hooray! They're finally releasing this. I think it's the best song on the album. I liked ET, but the Kanye remix didn't do anything for me. The fact that TGIF has "remix" in its title, makes me a little leery, but I hope it's another hit for her.

    I love the song, and the cover makes it a lot easier for any fan to love that hasn't heart the song.

    Just to chime in, I do agree that "Hummingbird Heartbeat" is the best song on the CD. However, I actually like E.T. (without Kanye West) better than Teenage Dream, which sounds too poppish for my tastes.
