Thought this was Kesha when I first heard it ("...glitter all over the room...."), and, to tell you the truth here, once I found out that it wasn't Kesha, I branded it instantly as a Kesha ripoff. The glitter reference, the Tik-Tok vibe (and tone)... I thought, "yeah, that a blatant steal, man. Kesha ought to go right ahead and demand the frigging royalties. ALL OF THEM."

But the truth is: IT IS NO SUCH THING.

You know, it's strange how pop music seems to finds a consensus-theme within the record buying public. FRIDAY is actually the fifth single from Perry's album -- she wasn't trying to copy Kesha at all (check the dates of release(s)) -- I'm just saying that to think she was writing essentially the same stuff as Kesha was at almost the same time, purely by accident, is bizarre.

But hey, there it is.

FRIDAY is in the headache-to-read key of D-sharp minor (6 sharps!), which means that it was almost certainly written on keyboard... yet the strummy guitars give the track a different vibe (as they're used here) while still holding the headache "keyboard" key -- and the final result is damned interesting. The song seems to walk a tightrope between positive & negative vibes: the 6 sharps "should" give the song a buzzy, positive vibe (a "feel" that the intelligent use of guitar here seems to take away) while simultaneously being held in a minor key throughout "should" (again, in theory, here) give the song something of a down-vibe -- which the intelligent use of guitar here also takes away. In other words, it's like somebody sanded down the extreme edges on both sides of a box of chaos, and left nothing but a simple and very cool middle that manages to somehow not sound sterilized. It's interesting that the lyrics (which basically say that, hey...

The rating I give is based on how much I like the song. My opinion

I don't really understand how one can objectively review a song. It's entirely a matter of opinion, and a review of a song is basically pointless. I can understand reviews for albums because you can rate an overall collection of songs, especially when the review comes out before the album.

But youtube exists now. It's not like you need to base your purchase on what other people think. You listen to the song, and if you like it enough to want it on your mp3 player (or in better quality than youtube)... (or if you want to support the artist), you buy the mp3.

I guess I'm just babbling and I need to write a minimum amount of words to be able to post this review... Seriously though, I love the fact that amazon hosts customer reviews, but it's a bit unnecessary for individual songs.

I've loved Katy Perry's music since I got a bit of "Hot 'n' Cold" on the air waves. I've been slowly picking up my favorite tunes by her. This song is no exception. It's fun, campy, a little off-beat humor and very dance-able.

"Last Friday Night" is rightfully Katy Perry's latest hit. The music video not only has Rebecca Black herself, but it's a tribute to the '80s with Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys), Debbie Gibson (Debbie Gibson - Greatest Hits) and Kenny G (I'm in the Mood For Love...The Most Romantic Melodies of All Time). There's even a Hanson cameo and a GLEE reference with Darren Criss (Blaine of Glee: The Music presents The Warblers) The music video is EPIC GUILTY PLEASURE FUN. Even without the music, it would be fabulousness wrapped up in awesomeness topped with win.

"Last Friday Night" is a hilarious song about a party gone wrong. It's got a catchy chorus. Katy's ironic tone helps. There's no need for rapping from Kanye West and Snoop Dogg (thank goodness) Katy's great on her own. She's back to her comical, ironic, fun tone. "Last Friday Night" is more reminiscent of Katy when she first hit it big- before she married Russell Brand, before she was collaborating with rappers at all. This is her being her fun self.

TGIF!!! TGIF!!!!

I purchased this song "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" by Katy Perry from the album "Teenage Dream [Explicit]" as an Mp3 (because I always enjoyed it so much) and I am very happy with it!

What sold me on this song was the video that came with it! Katy Perry is really understanding this whole "pop music" thing and gives omage to some of the best that did it!!

Katy Perry's music video for Last Friday Night is simply amazing. Its a perfect 80s throwback, nailing the stereotypical look and feel. The nerd has head gear, the jock is in his letterman jacket, the hot girls are covered in makeup and pounds of hair spray. But its not just visually well done, its substance is perfect too. There is needless exposition to introduce the video and it has named characters. It covers many late 80s trends including cameos (Cory Feldman, Kenny G...), a cross over with rebecca black, references, and even has a solo by 80s musician Kenny G.

Its hard to hate the flaws in this video... the chants of irrelevant phrase "TGIF" had me laughing instead of eye rolling, and the horribly done product placement for Just Dance is so transparent its harmless.

Oh yeah and the song is good too.

So good. Katy Perry whats good.
