The Top Ten

This song is completely katy's awesome power of singing
She's close now for being the new pop queen
I liked this song when it was only Katy Perry and not Kanye West but oh well it doesn't stop the song from its success and how good it really is.
The versatility, the video, concept and sheer brilliance of singing puts katy on the top... The next Michael Jackson in female form is here
[Newest]It's a grate one 😊

This song is very inspirational. It tells that it doesn't matter if one is different but what matters is what is inside. It tells that everyone is very special that they are ready to explode like a firework
God! This song is so catchy and enthusiastic! My feet begins to tap when I listen this song! I can't stop listening to this song and this song is on my phone too! Firework should be at first place! And its really really energetic, plus the music video makes me feel like I'm in that video too!
This song is amazing. It's great to and it's give the energy and power to do whatever you want to do. It's an awesome song to listen to.
[Newest]This song is one of the most meaningful songs by Katy Perry.

3Teenage Dream
Teenage Dream is the best!
It should be number one.
I love Katy Perry so, so, so much. I get to see her in concert. She is awesome!
Seriously Teenage Dream is one of those songs you can't ever get tired of! The lyrics are so amazing and the beat is very soft and melodic but still fun and upbeat. Addicting song!
Let's go all the way to the top. I love this song the most, her vocal is perfect the video is so katy and that is maybe one of the best song about teenager. LOVE IT!
[Newest]It's really hard to pick one best song from her entire collection, but I pick Teenage Dream because I like the lyrics, the guitar at the intro, and this is so catchy. But if I chose another song, the reasons will be similar... So I don't know what is critical. I just really like it. I guess I still like Teenage Dream in ten years.

She's back with a different persona, which is pretty quick for a person who is so bubbly, fun, girly! I pretty much liked her old one though but don't have a problem with this one! Surprised it hasnt yet come in the top ten list!
I need to check this next week & I'm sure this song will be number 1 or 2. It's so inspirational, incredible, & I love it. It's already #2 on billboard.
A brand new song, laugh out loud, I love it guys, vote it please just 4 me I want it to get higher than be4!
[Newest]It's very good Δ± think

5Hot 'n' Cold
How can hot n cold be this low? It's her best song its gotta be near first place
I love the beat to it Katy's voice totally shows off in this song. I also think the music video is really creative. Katy Perry rocks!
It is a awesome song. Its her best song all observers hear it you will itself vote. At least it must be in top 3
No words to appreciate her in this song it makes me bounce and couldn't sit in one place
[Newest]This is the best song created by katy perry all time.

6The One That Got Away
The song is great and Katy Perry is amazing, she will never disappoint. I wasn't going to vote for this though, but the video clip of this was just breathtaking. It is basically like a mini movie so I had to vote for it.
Sometimes you promise someone forever but it doesn't work out that way.

This song really touch my heart.
It has a great beat to it and it just plain rocks! I love it. It's so good! This is by far one of her catchiest songs! It has a great meaning as well!
[Newest]It's a beautiful song!

7Wide Awake
My favorite song of Katy's ever. The music video is so inspirational too! If you haven't seen it, check it out! It reminds me of an Alice in Wonderland something. I see top 10 in it's near future!
Best video I have ever seen. Katy you look awesome in this video
This was the one of katy's catchy songs, this should be top ten,...
[Newest]It tells me I've been dreaming for 10 years. I've final woke up to the hard truth

8California Gurls
This song is really awesome, creative and extremely catchy. I mean name one thing that is bad about this song? NOTHING! This song is just absolutely perfect and should not be 4th!
hit number #1 (4 weeks)in australia


I am from California that's why I love this song it is great you guys should watch the video it is really funny to also I am doing a biography on Katy award I think that snoop doogy dog rapped good in the song like I got that song in my head for about 2 weeks like it is great what is not good about this song nothing why is it the sixth it should have been the 1st to be honest
[Newest]She was very creative with this song and it is very catchy.

9Last Friday Night
The video of this song is great and must of taken a while to make it. The song is also awesome and very catchy. Thank god for Katy Perry and T. G. I. F!
It's really excellent I love the video and it is just really really good it is excellent brilliant and inspiring to people who don't look the best but they could they really could have a chance to look as good as katy perry

10I Kissed a Girl
The sexiest song ever made! I mean who in the world doesn't find 2 chicks kissing hot!? I know I do!
Her first big hit which kick-started the brand in katy perry


[Newest]This song is so cool. Love it

The Contenders

11Dark Horse
Amazing Music and a great voice of Katy Perry...
How is this so low?
I LOVE katy perry but and her song Dark Horse but I think that it was offensive to Islam and Muslims. I think that this was her way of making money and fame and for doing so she may or may not know that she's actually lost over 90% of fans and not all of them are Muslims but thank you so much for deleting that bit out of the official video now and understanding your fans I LOVE you STILL! Please publish this because it proves a really good point 😊😊😊
[Newest]This song should be in top

12Part of Me
This song will break all records. Amazing performance by Katy Perry! It has a good lyrics and a mind blowing music that I can keep listening till 2020. The rhythms are mesmerizing and her emotion says it all. She is the next "Pop-Queen". We love you Katy Perry. You have a voice to die for!
This is the part of me, I can't get it out of my head, I love this song more than anything this year past, it blows everything up for me every time I listen this! Absolutely AWESOME!
This song is really good. It has a really catchy beat and the lyrics are simply great. This is the perfect song for someone who has just gone through a break-up and hate the guy who screwed them over. I STRONGLY suggest everyone listens to it.
[Newest]I don't Like this song

13Thinking of You
I love this song.
"Comparison aren't easily done once you've had a taste of perfection"
It is amazing, such a wonderful theme.
I really feel her pain watching the video, very very touching! Deserves applause!
This is my favourite love song ever, I will never get bored of listening to it, the lyric, melody, her voice, the video, everything is amazing. Love it.
I don't understand how this song is not the number one on this list
This song is about war right? Well I cried when I first listened to this song. :{
But ya know it's time to die. AND I REALLY HATE COMPUTERS.
[Newest]This is her best!

Such an emotional song! Makes me wish I had someone that would love me like that.. Amazing vocals and the music is just perfect!
I love this song so much! I also love Hummingbird Heartbeat but I only get to choose one so I just picked this. This song is slow, but is very nice to hear! I've heard this song like a million times! Hummingbird Heartbeat is also awesome! Actually, all of Katy Perry's songs are awesome!
Just an awesome song with an amazing tune!
[Newest]It should be at least in top 5πŸ˜"

15Waking Up In Vegas
Comic, at the same time satisfying.


You may laugh at this, but truly nothing compares to the feeling you get when you wake up in Vegas. It's a magical place. I love everything about it: the glamour, the filth, the care free spirit, and the whole experience. Even taking the back roads had glory. You don't know the beauty in the smallest things, until you're there. This song captures every bit of it, and is very relatable.
This should be in the top 3 at least! It's my favorite Katy Perry song ever... And simple!
[Newest]The song was good but Katy went nude which disappointed me

16If We Ever Meet Again
Awesome song! K. P sounds awesome with timbaland
Oh, this song is so fabulous, I really love Katy's voice and with Timberland! JUST MERVEILLOUS
You have too hear this song its just amazing seems like your fly ing sak I knew yuod love it the bes
[Newest]Her best song by far and should be #1!

17Legendary Lovers
Absolutely the best Katy Perry song, Prism is by far her best album.
This song is the best on the album, but its really sad most people don't hear it
I LOVE THIS SONG! It is underrated, but it is like THE BEST SONG EVER!
[Newest]Nah, definitely this song not the best ever. πŸ˜’

18Hummingbird Heartbeat
This song is very underrated, I think. Although the lyrics are about sex and the like, it's sang very, very well and it's very catchy. This should be higher
This song is crazy wonderful!
This song is so powerful and I love it so much


It should hit billboard hot 100 number 1
I agree that this isn't the best Katy Perry song but I think that it should be at least near the top 10! I mean it's been more successful than some of the others on top!
The best song I've heard in a long time.. ! Should be in
Top ten
[Newest]The best Katy Perry song

This song can't be in tenth... It is the best song by katy perry. I can't get the song out of my head that's how good it is. I love this song so much! Katy perry rules this is her best song in the world
Definitely one of my favourites BUT I'm pretty sure that this was a 3OH! 3 song that Katy Perry only featured in. So technically not an official Katy Perry song but who cares?
Starstrukk is incredible, just incredible. It deserves to stay in top 3, I will never get bored of listening to starstrukk, hat's off to Perry, great work.
[Newest]Very very very good song

21One of the Boys
Hm what a song! Awesome
Best Song EVER! <3 IT!
The songs relaxing me

22Not Like the Movies
I love this song and I wake up to it everym morning. The lyrics are so happy yet sad and bring a tear to your eyes. She put tons of effort into this song and I love it
This song is like one of the best song ever. Totally her best.
I just love this song so much.
[Newest]I cannot believe that this song is not in the top ten! It has an amazing lyrics and it is definitely one of her best songs!

This song is vulgar, but very very cachy and great!
My mom heard me singing this. What happened next was not pretty. But still worth it.
When I hear these I rememeber our school dance troop because these is our theme song to dance

24This Is How We Do
Superb song... Love it
Love it like it like now
Because I do like it


26By the Grace of God
It sounds like a good song. I didn't know she would have written this song because her songs are usually about boys actually all the time. I do not know this song.
I makes me think like she wants to take her life away from herself but chooses not to because if that happened once to everybody everyone would be dead
This should be a lot higher on this list. From her album Prism, one of my favourite songs. Makes me cry. Very beautiful.

27If You Can Afford Me
I Love this song! So catchy! It makes me want to dance every time I hear it! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

28Walking On Air
So uplifting and happy! I am actually listening to it right now. It is a bit different but it just makes me feel like I am in the clouds like an angel.
Perfect swedish pop song
As a promotional song, I think its good. #TEAMKATY

29Dressin' Up
This song does not belong down here! One of the best of The Complete Confection album and should have been released as a single.
You have to hear this song! First 5seconds it isnΒ't so good but then BEAUTIFUL! :D
Why is this down here? Its one of d best songs out there!

30Self Inflicted
The best song of katy perry despite the fact she has sung many great songs but this song is something else.. I'm so addicted to it, I can't get out of my head!
I'm katycats, and I guess this song is top 5 of her best songs,... Just try to download this song, and I promise this song never disappointed katycats!
Ths song deserves to be at least in the top 10! As one person below said, just try listening to it once. You will fall in love with it.
[Newest]Simply the best song of KATY

31True Love
I love this song. Very catchy, with an addictive feel. Sometimes it feels like I wrote this song, because I have defanantly felt that feeling before! "Is this made up, or true love? "

32Who Am I Living For?
Um not too sure why this song is number 28 on this list because it is FANTASTIC (realize I put fantastic in all upper case letters to express how great I really think this song is)
I love who am I liven for?
Such a beautiful song that needs to be higher!

33Circle the Drain
Such a strong beat blue meaningful lyrics = Amazing. This song has a great meaning but is also easy to dance to. Some times I will spend hours on YouTube or in my music trying to find a good song to dance to and I can always go back to this song as a fail safe.
This song rocks I am the number 1 Katy catπŸ’
This is far better than any others. The beat is almost rock and the lyrics give an even edgy tone to it. I love it
[Newest]A great song by Katy Perry. Another catchy one from her teenage dream album

34Ur So Gay
This is awesome! Love it.. Better than hot n cold! Vote guys! Lovely beat! <3
Best song after break-up... moving on and laughing bout your ex at the same time... love it!

Nice songs that you made

Amazing should be higher
! This is the fourth best song from Prism after Roar, Dark Horse, Unconditionally, and then comes Ghost. It should have been a single than people would get to know how good the song is. It's a fantastic song about forgetting about the past. It's a very catchy past.

This song needs to be a single so that everyone realises how much of a good song this is!

I think that this is one of the more powerful katy perry songs and even thought it's not the best to dance to the emotion poured into this is brilliant. I think that at some point in our lives we can all relate to the lyrics if this song
This is great. A powerful ballad with a deep meaning. Love it.
Such an emotional and strong ballad by Perry!

38International Smile
Love this song. So unique and such a good party song!

39Love Me
This is like my new favorite song, the lyrics are so inspiring!
My third favourite katy Perry song

Love this song! Katy Perry did a great job on this song, just like the boy from the movie said! It's the bestt!


49th? Really? Its about a girl in an abusive relationship... The lyrics are brilliant, and should be appreciated a hell of a lot more
I love this song need more higher even Unconditionally too.


[Newest]Everyone is a pearl and everyone needs to know that! Send this song higher up!

41Trust In Me

I love this song, because it is just so simple and Katy looks so young and natural in the music video. The music is very catchy and I feel happy, every time I hear it. The songs tells, that life is so simple and that we should deal with it
I love her old indie pop and pop rock stuff when she had the strong Alanis Morrisette influence and a little punk influence. This song is a great example of that. I hope she goes back to that early sound on her new album. Her old stuff was songwriting at its best.


44Search Me
Isn't it should to be way higher. I love this song.

45It Takes Two
! Those who haven't heard this HAVE to.. One of her awesome songs! Easily top 10...
All of you have to hear this song! Amazing, nothing can beat this song.
You eventually are going to play this song most relevant in super radical way.
[Newest]I like the way she sings "I'm sorry"

46Last Call

47Wish You the Worst

48Long Shot

Like something from Zero7 or (recent) Marina and the Diamonds. It's tranquil and ethereal - really the perfect pairing with Katy's soft voice. Spiritual is pensive and romantic but not in her typical "beat you over the head with a candy cane" sort of way. Plus, it's one of the few Swedish electro-inspired songs on PRISM and the only one that fits the airy, daisy-covered motif of the album. Give it another listen.

50Growing Pains

51My Own Monster

52Faith Won't Fail

53Electric Feel
It is a nice song.

54Who You Love
Awesome song. Really touching.

55A Cup of Coffee

56When There's Nothing Left

57Hook Up
love this song it should be top ten, it's lyrics are deep and it has a very catchy rhythm as well


59This Moment

60Nothing Like the First Time


62I'm Still Breathing
I can't believe it's not in top 10. Definitely deserves better more acknowledgement.
This is the song that makes you cry

I kind of wanting to hear this song on the radio, even they played the same song over and over until the song really flies or being judicious odd.

64Choose Your Battles

65Mr & Mrs Don't Give a F***
Rubbish song also don't use the word f###

66My Boyfriend's Ex Girlfriend

67Spend the Night

68Brick by Brick

69It's Okay to Believe
It is the best song. Love the voice of katy and selena gomez. The music and beats are excellent


71Just a Song
It's not just an ordinary song. It's more than special.

72Bad Photographs
This song is so much good

This song is pretty good

74Milk Milk Lemonade

75Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Duet with niki minaj
Love love love hate nicki

One of her early unreleased songs that shows an edgier side to Katy, with good lyrics and a nice guitar riff. One of her finest yet underappreciated works.

77Rock God
Sultry yet swinging as it tells Perry's own tale of a good girl gone bad. Catchy as sin.

This song was written by katy perry but it was in realest so it should still be on here


79Double Rainbow
Fifty Two? FIFTY TWO?!?! This should be way higher on the list! Hears to all the great guys out there. And girls, go and find your double rainbow, he's waiting for you. Maybe he is the nerd in your geometry class you the kid getting picked on in the halls or maybe, just maybe he is standing next to you as you read this. You never know 😘
Maybe not the best but maybe the best of prism!
Definitely the best, of prism


[Newest]This should be in the top 20 list!

80Use Your Love

81White Christmas
Very slow song. Good its 77
