My daughter listens to a clean version on the radio but we were unaware the download version is not the same and is not appropriate for kids. I just threw away a buck since I had to delete it as soon as I listened to the downloaded version. Since Amazon doesn't have the clean version, I will have to buy it elsewhere.

I just wasted $3 trying to find a "clean" version of Katy Perry's Hot n Cold for my 6 year old daughter. The version that is played on the radio is obviously cleaned up enough for kids to listen to but Amazon does not offer a version of this song that is suitable for kids. What a waste of money and time!!!

As far as Katy Perry goes, 'Hot and Cold' is, IMO, a better song than 'I Kissed A Girl'. The initial appeal of 'Kissed A Girl' was the shock value...which was somewhat clever and creative...but that's about as far as the song went.

The groove is stronger, and the chorus has a better melody for Katy to showcase her vocals. I'm not saying she's the greatest singer in the world or anything close to it, but this song is much less likely to become old like 'Kissed A Girl' did. I was tired of that one after just a few weeks.

I think the fact that this song is not as "catchy" is actually in its favor...when long-term listening is factored in. I don't think it will be on the charts as long, and therefore won't be as overplayed.

After hearing this song just about everywhere, I finally had to break down and download it. It is just too dang catchy.

Expected to get the song I hear on the radio, and was jolted to suddenly, and very clearly, here the b#$%@ word fly out of my phone. Would have been nice if the song had been tagged as explicit. I wasn't even aware this version existed, and since I've listened to the song enough on the radio, I didn't think to do a check of the lyrics before purchasing. Frustrated.

I heard this song through the speakers of a retail store. It's funny I was able to actually find it because all I remembered was one phrase: "you're up and you're down." LOL. After doing a Google search for lyrics, I found it. This song is so catchy, I decided to buy it.

May 5, 2009 UPDATE: I have a high quality Altec Lansing 621 2.1 100 watt RMS computer speaker set. I have listened to this MP3 several times and it is of poor quality. I can barely understand the singer. The problem is that it's a joint stereo MP3. Joint stereo MP3's share some code between the 2 stereo channels. They tend to have problems with middle frequencies. The voice is distorted. In addition, the highs are too sharp and I had to turn the highest frequency, 15K Hz, way down on my 10 band equalizer. All MP3's sold should be true stereo, not joint stereo. Amazon's specs claim 256 Kbits, not true either. This is a variable bit rate MP3. As long as the overall bit rate is above 230 Kbits, that's fine. However, I prefer just a straight 256 Kbit rate MP3. Amazon is saving VERY LITTLE bandwidth by changing the MP3 to joint stereo and variable bit rate. The size of the MP3 IS ONLY REDUCED BY A VERY SMALL AMOUNT. Yet, the quality IS GREATLY AFFECTED.

These are the specs for this MP3:
Joint Stereo
Time Length: 3:40.3
Size: 6,651,218 Bytes
Average Bit rate: 239 Kbits
Lowest Estimated Bit rate: 160 Kbits
Highest Estimated Bit rate: 320 Kbits

We often read on the 'Net how the RIAA's corporate members were constantly suing everyone for illegally downloading their music. Now the RIAA has made deals with ISP's creating a "3 Strike Program." If you're caught by your ISP illegally downloading content 3 times, the ISP terminates your connection. Yet, the songs they sell are of poor quality. I paid for this song, it should be clear and distortion free.
