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!!!

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 don't mind an occasional swear word in a song if it's just for me. However, my daughter liked this song and that's part of the reason I bought it, we wanted to listen to it in the car. I can't play it around my toddlers, I did not realize this song had the B-word in it before paying a buck twenty-nine for it. It was not even needed in there! I can't listen to it because I have young children, and it pisses me off. Amazon did not put up a warning for it, either, and it wasn't in the sample.

I love this upbeat and very, very energizing song. It's in my kick-butt gym playlist and I also like to listen to it while doing housework, writing or counting silver iridescent stars in the dark ultramarine blue night sky. Baby, you're a firework. Think #fun #upbeat #breakupsong! Happy listening~*

I've heard this song in music videos on You Tube and it even makes me think about going swimming on a hot day! A jolly good tune, indeed, and it would also be good music for parties, get-togethers, and other events! It even makes good music to have in your house. Confound it, get this song immediately!!

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.

I have always like Katy's upbeat music, and pop is almost a lost art in this day and age when people just want to make a hit and not consider what makes a hit unique. The lyrics are simple and meaningful (though I don't listen to this one for that) and I love the fun easily danceable beat. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a jazzy running song to up their pace as that's the main reason I downloaded this one. :-) It never hurts that I like Katy's style too.
