Katy Perry Songwriter:

Katy Perry rose to fame with her hit single “I Kissed a Girl,” in 2008, which went to the top of the international charts. She then continued on with, “Hot N Cold.” Both singles received multi-platinum recognition. “One of the Boys,” Perry’s first mainstream studio album was the 33rd best selling album worldwide of 2008 and was accredited platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. This is a long way from starting out with her first internet single “Ur So Gay,” in November of 2007, after signing with her 4th record label in seven years, Capitol Music Group. “Ur So Gay,” got some public attention but failed to reach the charts.

Perry kept her fame with her unique style and in her “California Gurls,” video by squirting whipped cream out of her bra. However, beyond the sex appeal and novelty, Katy Perry is a successful songwriter who’s credit is shared on some hits, such as “Teenage Dream” as well as, “Firework.” These songs as well as, “California Gurls,” “E.T.,” and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F),” were Billboard chart toppers. Katy Perry also has a whole manifest of songs yet be released, which includes, Kelly Clarkson’s more refined version of “I Do Not Hook Up.”

Listen to compared versions below, as well as a few others:

“I Do Not Hook Up,” the song Kelly Clarkson made her own, is probably one of the best known Katy Perry written songs. Perry originally named the song “Hook Up.” Clarkson almost took this song all the way to the top of the charts, and probably would have, if she didn’t change the best part of the song:

“So if you want me, I don’t come cheap/ Keep your thing in your pants, your heart on your sleeve,” and changed it to the more G rated version,” Keep your hand in my hand, your heart on your sleeve.”

Katy’s Perry Version:

“The Girl Next Door,”- Jesse James

Originally a Katy Perry demo about how Perry rose to fame, “The Girl Next Door,” was sung by Jesse James. Who you may ask? Well that’s why Jesse James singing this makes no sense because the song does not make sense with her singing it. When this song got out, Katy Perry had just released her song, “Waking Up in Vegas,” so if Perry had been singing this song, it probably would have not only made sense but might have even made it.

“Rock God”-Selena Gomez & The Scene:

Selena Gomez - Katy Perry.

By Captivated Designs

Religious metaphors fill this song, with out a doubt because of Katy Perry growing up in a devout Christian home, which is why it makes no sense that Selena Gomez is singing this song. Gomez does not have the religious upbringing to back up what the whole song is about. Lyrics like : ” Father, I’m torn and I’m selling my soul/ To the rhythm, the beat, and the bass,” make the song washout when she sings it.

Kelly Clarkson – “Long Shot”:

Kelly Clarkson’s version is favored over the original Katy Perry demo version because it doesn’t have awkward guitar picks and riffs from a guitar that isn’t plugged in. The Kelly version musically just sounds better. Hats off to you Kelly, because out of any  Perry’s songs sang by another artist this one is much different but for the good.

Katy Perry Version:

“Bullet,”- Jessie James:

Even though this song has not been released, it has been confirmed to be co-written by Katy Perry by ASCAP.  We can probably make a couple observations that we can bet on, based on what we’ve heard before. One, that the original has no country flair and two the original has a rougher edge than James’s version ( Katy’s earlier songs have a rougher sound that her newer hits). We can also probably guess that James’s kept the original racy lyrics,”Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?”
