Top 10 Best Katy Perry Songs

The Top Ten
1 Firework

This is the most cheerful song I have ever heard. It fills a person with inspiration, no matter how much pain they are in. This song should be ranked first. It tells us that our lives are full of struggles, and sometimes we lose in the long run. Because of this, we consider ourselves worthless and lose hope. However, we shouldn't. We should understand our importance in this world. We are capable of many things that others cannot expect from us. So we should not underestimate ourselves and also not let others underestimate us.

2 E.T.

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. That's also not counting YouTube or the 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 the 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!

3 Teenage Dream

It's really hard to pick the best song from her entire collection, but I pick Teenage Dream because I like the lyrics and the guitar at the intro, and it's so catchy. But if I chose another song, the reasons would be similar. So I don't know what is critical. I just really like it. I guess I'll 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. It's an addicting song!

Let's go all the way to the top. I love this song the most. Her vocals are perfect, the video is so Katy, and it is maybe one of the best songs about teenagers. LOVE IT!

4 Hot 'N' Cold

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

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

5 Roar

The song was played in my gym, and I was so impressed with the way it was sung that I asked my trainer who the singer was. He promptly replied, Miley Cyrus. I was shocked. The voice quality and the maturity with which it was sung could 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 learned it was Katy Perry. ;) :P Katy Perry rocks.

She's back with a different persona, which is pretty quick for a person who is so bubbly, fun, and girly! I pretty much liked her old one, though, but don't have a problem with this one! Surprised it hasn't yet made it into the top ten list!

6 Wide Awake

This song is just everything. I cannot put how much I love it into words. Many times, I've been on public transport and had to hold back tears. It's just so sad yet so powerful and uplifting at the same time because it proves that even Katy Perry goes through situations we all do. And if she can get through them, so can we. 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 something like Alice in Wonderland. I see a top 10 ranking in its near future!

7 Last Friday Night

I was torn between voting for this song and California Girls, but I voted for this one. This song is incredibly 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.

I really can't believe it. How is this song ranked ninth? At minimum, it should be third. When I hear it, I just feel like dancing. Katy Perry is truly a Pop Queen. She rarely releases songs that aren't good. I really love Katy Perry's songs.

I love this song, but I love Saturdays more. Whatever, I know every word. My favorite part is, Yeah, we danced on table tops!

8 The One that Got Away

Katy Perry is 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 realized what a stupid girl I was for not liking her.

I have books about 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 favorite singer and actress in the world! Love you, Katy Perry! XOXO.

9 Part of Me

This song will break all records. Amazing performance by Katy Perry! It has good lyrics and mind-blowing music that I could keep listening to until 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 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 hates the guy who screwed them over. I strongly suggest everyone listens to it.

10 Dark Horse

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

One of the greatest usages of her vocals and beats, yet it 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, and it's her biggest point to date. Guys, please vote for this song to increase its position. Besides, it was a number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 in the year 2014.

The Contenders
11 California Gurls

California Gurls is the best song of Katy Perry's, in my opinion. It's been two years since it was released, and radio stations still play it. The song is extremely catchy and is a really good summer pool party anthem. I love this song. I'm a boy, and I think this song is really good. I will always love it.

This song is really awesome, creative, and extremely catchy. I mean, can you name one thing that is bad about this song? Nothing! It's just absolutely perfect and should not be in fourth place.

This song must be number one. It's the best song from Katy Perry. I like this song so much that I can't stop listening to it. The video is also pretty cool. I want to go to California right now.

12 I Kissed a Girl

I honestly feel like this song has kind of been forgotten, and it's really a shame. Katy Perry hit a home run with her first single. In fact, I personally think it's her best song to date. It's just so raw and bold, something that's really missing from her other singles. Even in the ocean of lustful songs that is the modern pop music industry, this one is still rather special.

So, so, so good. I remember a year ago my crush and I texted each other a line from the song, and then the other would text the next line until we finished the song. I don't know. I've just always loved this song ever since I was five. It should have been a huge indicator that I was bisexual, so it has a special place in my heart.

13 Unconditionally

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 really stands out. It's such a beautiful song with an awesome video too. Probably not the song that I want to hear every day, but it's just beautiful and really powerful for me.

14 Thinking of You

I love this song.

"Comparisons are easily done, once you've had a taste of perfection."

It is amazing, with such a wonderful theme.
I really feel her pain watching the video. It's very, very touching and deserves applause.

This is my favorite love song ever. I will never get bored of listening to it. The lyrics, melody, her voice, the video - everything is amazing. Love it.

I don't understand how this song is not number one on this list.

The lyrics are so easy to relate to. Her voice in the live performances of this song is filled with so much emotion. This song is number one on my list, and I am a HUGE Katy Perry fan.

15 Waking Up in Vegas

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 carefree spirit, and the whole experience. Even taking the back roads has its 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 goes broke, it shows an incredible lesson. It's just like I Kissed a Girl, but better.

16 This Is How We Do
17 Birthday

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 at the 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!

Such a catchy and awesome song. Love it!

18 Fingerprints
19 Circle the Drain

Such a strong beat and meaningful lyrics equal amazing. This song has a great meaning but is also easy to dance to. Sometimes I will spend hours on YouTube or in my music library trying to find a good song to dance to, and I can always go back to this song as a failsafe.

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

A great song by Katy Perry. Another catchy one from her Teenage Dream album.

20 Never Really Over

It's a perfect gem of pop. I can't understand why it is so underrated.

It's got that pop song quality to it, and I found it enjoyable whenever it came on.

21 Starstrukk

This song can't be in tenth place. 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.

Starstrukk is incredible, just incredible. It deserves to stay in the top 3. I will never get bored of listening to Starstrukk. Hats off to Perry. Great work.

Definitely one of my favorites, BUT I'm pretty sure that this was a 3OH!3 song that Katy Perry only featured in. So technically, it's not an official Katy Perry song, but who cares?

22 Peacock

This song is catchy, but my friend and I would sing it as seven-year-olds without 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. I love you, Katy, but you've got young fans like me, and I want a version of this song about actual peacocks.

What? Just nineteenth? I think it should be in the top five. I advise all of you to listen to it, and I know you'll vote for it!

23 Hummingbird Heartbeat

This song, I think, should be first. It is a song that is so fun and you can't get tired of it. Plus, the idea of the song, in my opinion, is genius. The rhythm and beat are perfect, from the calm bit at the start to the high, upbeat rhythm throughout the rest of the song. This will always be my favorite Katy Perry song!

This song is very underrated, I think. Although the lyrics are about sex and the like, it's sung very well and is very catchy. This should be higher.

24 Chained to the Rhythm

This isn't political. It's a song about how we are chained to the world, tone-deaf, and becoming zombies because we're chained to the rhythm of society. She's warning us, but again, we're tone-deaf and living in a bubble.

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

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

25 Rise

"When the fire's at my feet again"... it's totally awesome, and the lyrics... it's just so great: "don't be surprised, I will still rise."

Awesome song and picturization! The music and rhythm are too good. Deserves to be in the top ten.

I bought this song on iTunes, and it is amazing! I'm Katy's number one fan! Love you, Katy!
