Katy Perry has talent for turning our catching pop tunes that catch the culture of the time. This is a poppy tune that is probably the best written and composed on One of the Boys. Lacks the maturity and depth developed in some of Perry's later music (see wide awake, Part of Me) but for the time is a step forward from I kissed a Girl and Hot N Cold.

It's fun, it's poppy the chorus is energetic but ultimately, the song itself is kinda forgettable.

Katy's a pretty girl and I commend her for writing or co-writing all of her tracks on One of the Boys, but from what I've heard from the singles, she's got a lot of growing to do.

The upside to this is that she seems to be very down to earth in interviews which I've seen on youtube so that's a plus.

The song is about "Waking Up In Vegas" and kinda being disoriented. Katy loses her fake I.D. and I think her "boyfriend" has lost the room key.

It's OK, but could be better. I prefer Thinking Of You which has substance or even I Kissed A Girl which is more addictive.

2.75 stars.

"Waking up in Vegas" is Katy Perry's latest,and it has her trademark humor. It's a bittersweet look at a fling in Vegas. In the video, she and her boyfriend enjoy the shows, win the $$$, bathe in the glamor... but the song ends with them losing all their money, going to a laundromat, and having to steal goodies off of room service trays. (There's even a Penn and Teller cameo) "Waking" is about awakening from self-indulgence. Considering the state of the economy, Perry's song is poignant and bittersweet.

For Katy Perry, over the top is just the tip of the iceberg, from her original/strange lyrics, to her outrageous outfits/stage presence, she's truly an original figure. It's this strange newness that turns you off at first, but eventually it'll overtake you i.e. Hot N' Cold. Waking Up In Vegas is lyrically original, has a great melody taking a building up approach, and the song is possibly even more catchy then any of her previous singles. "Shut up and put your money where your mouth is, that's what you get for waking up in Vegas. Get up and shake the glitter of your shoulders..." It's crazy...

Overall, this song should not stay in Vegas, and could be Perry's best effort thus far. Still not amazing, but good enough for your iPod.

There honestly is no question about the lack of really good msuci. For Katy Perry whom had scored with I Kissed A Girl a year ago from her debut record, One Of The Boys, her latest single doesn't seem to shine any better. Waking Up in Vegas, the 4th single from that album doesn't make you feel as driven either. I really wasn't impressed with the song at all. While the beat might seem catchy, the strength of the song gets a bit tiring after awhile. Katy really needs to honestly find better material to make her music feel like the worth is all her own much more strong-felt. Hopefully, the next single she makes will make you feel like you're waking up in heaven rather thhan the loss of being in Las Vegas.

Song: D+
