Best Katy Perry Songs

The Top Ten

1 Firework Firework Cover Art

Amazing lyrics, great vocal, videospot and the song. Don't be good just outside, but inside. Also that you're original, cannot be replace gives you power.

This song most cheerful song I have ever heard. It makes a person full of inspiration no matter in how much pain he is. This song must be kept in the first. It tells us that in ours life is full of struggles and sometimes we lose in the long runthus we consider our self worthless and lose our hopes but we should not, we should understand our importance in this world. We can do many things which others cannot expect from us. So we should not underestimate ourself and also not let others to underestimate us.

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 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

2 E.T. E.T. Cover Art

I love this song. I mean, so much, you don't understand; I have been OBSESSING over it for six years now. No exaggeration, I think my total play-count for this song must have surpassed at least 15,000 across all my devices, AT LEAST, and that's a rough estimate, and that's also not counting YouTube or times times I've played the actual CD. This song is so underrated. I can't even put into words how much I love it. I think I have a problem. (P.S. I'm talking about the album version here. In my opinion, Kanye West ruined it.)

This is by far one of her best songs ever, if not her best. Definitely one of my favorites, this is the song that officially got me hooked on Katy Perry music. (Even though I liked all her songs before, this one really drew my attention and made me become a huge fan of hers) I LOVE THIS SONG!

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.

3 Teenage Dream Teenage Dream Cover Art

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.

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!

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!

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!

4 Hot 'N' Cold Hot 'N' Cold Cover Art

This is, like, the best song ever! It's SUPER catchy and it's actually my favourite song (from Katy) I don't get why its this low, it should be number one or at least number two because its just THAT awesome! The music video is great too and catchy and has a great beat to it. I can't sit still listening to it. Katy 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

Hot n Cold is an awesome song and has the funniest, most unpredictable, amazing music video ever! The lyrics, her voice, the beat and everything is so awesome! It deserves to be in the 1st place! Vote for Hot n Cold please!

This song is so amazing, it should be number 1! It is powerful, energetic, catchy yet having a really good meaning. I also like the music video... It is so funny! Katy Perry shows her best in that song. Really, listen to it!

5 Roar Roar Cover Art

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!

The song was played in my GYM and I was so impressed with the way it was sung that I asked my trainer if he knows who is the singer. he promptly replied 'Miley Cyrus'... I was shocked... the voice quality and the maturity with which it was sung can not be Miley... I once again asked him to confirm it. he was like I am darn sure about it. the entire session of my gym I was all in praise for Miley until I learnt it was Katy perry... ;) :P katy perry rocks..

ONE OF THE BEST OUT IN THE WORLD.
Katy Perry is a QUEEN, not only because of her great music, but also because all of her songs have such an inspiring message to everyone. Especially this song. This song gets me so pumped up and ready to conquer the world whenever I hear it.
ROAR!

The video has more YouTube views than any other of her songs. It peaked at number 5 in over 25 charts across the world. Such a powerful song with an incredible message! Extremely catchy and one of Katy's most successful hits! Deserves a #1 spot on this list!

6 Wide Awake Wide Awake Cover Art

This song is just everything, I cannot put how much I love it into words. Many a time I've been on public transport and had to hold back the tears. It's just so sad yet so powerful and uplifting at the same time because it just proves that even Katy Perry goes situations we all do. And if she can get through them, so can we too. I just love her.

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!

Such a powerful song! She releases great power in the vocals alone which is hard to find these days. #1 on my list. She is about to kick Madonna's ass and take her Queen of Pop crown. One more smash hit, unrivaled by Madonna and she's got it. Go Katy!

Katy's best song for sure. It's really magical, catchy, and you would want to hear it over and over again! The video is A-MAZE-ING! It has a bit of everything, really. Top ten is made for this song!

7 Last Friday Night Last Friday Night Cover Art

I was torn between voting for this song and California Girls but I voted for this one. This song is so damn catchy! The video is hilarious and it's just a really good party song. It also made me like Rebecca Black. Katy Perry always has such fun videos.

The song alone is great but since I'm only ten this was a big airplay hit when I was about seven. I thought that these were the lyrics:Yeah we danced on tabletopAnd we caught too many sharksWe were in the park.Wow I was wrong. The remix is great too go listen to this song right now!

I really can't believe myself. How come this one is the 9th. Minimum, it should be the 3rd. When I hear it, I just feel like dancing. Katy Perry is truly a Pop Queen! She rarely gets not-that-good songs. I really love Katy Perry's songs.

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!

8 The One that Got Away The One that Got Away Cover Art

Katy Perry is just such an awesome, beautiful, talented and fun singer! She knows what she's doing especially when it comes to singing. I love this song, the way she looks is really stunning. At first I thought Katy Perry was lame, No Offense but one day when I heard all her songs I decided what stupid girl I was when I didn't like her. I have books of Katy, Magazines, Tattoos, I just can't explain everything. Katy Perry is basically my life! I really like this song, the music video was awesome and everything. I will definitely vote for Katy Perry's songs. Katy Perry is my only favourite singer and actress in the world! Love you Katy Perry! XOXO.

I love this song and it really touched my heart. Katy is my favourite singer. I love her songs cause they are inspirational and are inspired by a true things what happend and because of it her songs are full of life. This song is great because it says that nothing is forever and the BIGGEST LOVE can also disappear. If you didn't watched the clip please watch it. It is full of emotions and it made me cry

Oh my goodness, this is such a beautiful song. I am listening to an instrumental, slowed down version, and it is good enough to make me cry.
And the video... Oh my. Beautiful too. Sad. But beautiful. I applaud Katy Perry. I'm normally not a mainstream person, but this is... The best. It owns all other Katy songs.
I'm just rambling now, but really, it's gorgeous.

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.

9 Dark Horse Dark Horse Cover Art

This song is her best to date with it's mesmerizing beat and creative lyrics. This song definitely shows off the evolution in her music over the years, as this song takes on more dark and deductive undertones than her previous work. It's also a number one smash that was inescapable in early to mid 2014.

One of the greatest usage of her vocals and beats and yet fits perfectly with the tone and message of the lyrics - an inspiration for the further emergence of the electro-pop genre.

I want this song to be at the top 1 and her biggest point to date. Guys please vote this song to increase its position besides it was a number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 in year 2014.

This should be in the top 5 this shows the dark side to katy and even if the video is offensive to other religions it's not like she's the only singer that's ever did that! VOTE NOW!

10 I Kissed a Girl I Kissed a Girl Cover Art

So, so, so good. I remember a year ago my crush and I texted each other a line to the song and then the other would text the next line til we finished the song. I dunno, I've just always loved this song ever since I was five (should've been a HUGE indicator that I was bisexual) so it has a special place in my heart.

Hey, you can't go wrong with the song that made her career! My God, Summer of '08 you couldn't get away from this song. But who would want to!? That summer just wouldn't have been complete without it.

The sexiest song ever made! I mean who in the world doesn't find 2 chicks kissing hot!? I know I do!

This is the best rebel Katy Perry song out there! Its like, so what, screw our uptight conservative society! I kissed a girl and I LIKED it! You go Katy!

The Contenders

11 California Gurls California Gurls  Cover Art

California gurls is the best song of Katy Perry's I mean it's been two years since its been out and still radio stations play it. It's an extremely catchy song and is s really good summer pool party song. I love this song I'm a boy and I think this song is a really good song I love and always will

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!

I like this song very much Her voice is so sexy here and the music video is very creative, turning "California" into "Candifonia". California Gurls deserves to be the first

Why in the name of heaven is California Gurls this low? I mean seriously people what are you thinking, it's got EVERYTHING, a catchy chorus, great lyrics, and Snoop Dogg is AMAZING. PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS SONG!

12 Part of Me Part of Me Cover Art

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!

I just wonder how come it is not from the top ten. It is my favorite song of Katy Perry, and her magical voice was revealed the most in such song. I believe whoever would listen to it would love it from the first time. No matter how many times I listen to it, I never get bored of it.

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.

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!

13 Unconditionally Unconditionally Cover Art

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!

Because it's so different from the rest of her songs I think it just really stands out and it's such a beautiful song with an awesome video too. Probably not the song that I want to hear everyday but it's just beautiful and really powerful for me.

This song is so emotional! And the best thing about it is that it describes a kind of love which doesn't have to be a romantic love. There are far too few songs out there about the love between sisters or brothers or best friends, I think.

Great pop song! If not top ten on my list, then top twenty. I like a lot of your songs, and with this one I can picture a really good music video for fame tips. I may soon like her more than Taylor! I really have not compared them.

14 Thinking of You Thinking of You Cover Art

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!

Excuse me, actually the right lyrics are "Comparisons ARE easily done once you've had a taste of perfection"

Don't you dare change the lyrics to the songs of one Katy Elizabeth Hudson. Don't you dare.

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

No more word I can say.. This song is full of emotion, it just sad of missing feeling to someone, Katy Perry singing it with so powerful she outs her big feeling in this song, it is just AMAZING SAD SONG EVER! I Dare You!

This song brings me to tears every time I listen to it. This is BY FAR the most heart-fealt song by Katy Perry. This lyrics are so emotional and make you think about your life and everything you regret and look back at.

15 Waking Up in Vegas Waking Up in Vegas Cover Art

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.

Music video- awesome song- awesome. When Katy gets broke it shows an incredible lesson. Just like I kissed a girl but better.

Literally my favorite Katy Perry song ever. I love the pop rock feel to this I also like circle the drain.

This should be in the top 3 at least! It's my favorite Katy Perry song ever... And simple!

16 This Is How We Do This Is How We Do Cover Art

Everybody is saying she copied Taylor but tell me where does Taylor have a twerking ice cream?

I officially hate Katy Perry. Everything about this song is pedophilia/Pizzagate symbolism.

This Is How We Do, Birthday, and Unconditionally should be higher

Good song. I don't like it but has a good melody anyone can sing to.

17 Fingerprints Fingerprints Cover Art
18 Birthday Birthday Cover Art

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!

I love this song so much! It's so catchy and makes me feel great when it's my birthday! This is the only song I like from her considering that I am a Swiftie!

Even though this is an okay song, its katy, so a song just being okay is way below average.

The best song I've heard in a long time.. ! Should be in
Top ten

19 Hummingbird Heartbeat Hummingbird Heartbeat Cover Art

This song I think should be 1st, it is a song that is so fun and you can not get tired of it, plus, the idea of the song in my opinion is genius, and the rhythm and beat is perfect from the calm bit at the start, and then the high, upbeat rhythm throughout the rest of the song, this will always be my favourite Katy Perry song!

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 so powerful and I love it so much

This song is crazy wonderful!

20 Circle the Drain Circle the Drain Cover Art

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 is far better than any others. The beat is almost rock and the lyrics give an even edgy tone to it. I love it

Its not her best, but its still a great, catchy song that deserves to be on this list

I love this song but since I'm 9 I bought the clean version of the album on iTunes

21 Starstrukk Starstrukk Cover Art

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.

Oh my god! How this can be in 22? This is the most amazing song of Katy Perry. This song must be in number 1!

22 Peacock Peacock Cover Art

This is NASTY! Not only is it a failed attempt at being sexy, but it insults the symbol of my roots! In fact, if anything, this use of the peacock (a beautiful animal) as a sex metaphor makes Katy Perry seem kinda racist and culturally insensitive

This song is catchy, but my friend and I would sing it as seven-year-olds not knowing the real meaning. I found out what it was recently and it was not pretty. Turns out it wasn't about a bird... How did I not know?

I like this song but it's a bit rude like I love you Katy but you've got young fans like me and I want a version of this song about actual peacocks.

Oh! This song is so awesome, Its lyrics are passioning and I really love how she sings it, it gives very great feelings and make me feel good!

23 Chained to the Rhythm Chained to the Rhythm Cover Art

This isn't political, it's a song about how we are chained to the world, toned deaf, and we are becoming a zombie because we're chained to the rhythm. (Society)
She's warning us, but again, we're toned deaf. And living in a bubble

I love this song! It's the one of my favorite! This should be higher.

This song has the best message out of all her songs, easily.

The song deserves to be higher, such a happy catchy bop.

24 Not Like the Movies Not Like the Movies Cover Art

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 makes me cry because it reminds me of the boy I'm in love with who likes someone else. if it's not like the movies, then that's how it should be.

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!

Tells a story about love and how it doesn't Always turn out to be a fairytale or wath you imagined. Such a beautifull song

25 By the Grace of God By the Grace of God Cover Art

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.

This should be a lot higher on this list. From her album Prism, one of my favourite songs. Makes me cry. Very beautiful.

I love to listen this song 'cause it's all amazing.. Yeah

This song should be higher than Peacock.
