I'm not that into Katy Perry or any big-name artists. I would much rather listen to, for example, Celtic Thunder of Leahy for hours, but Katy Perry? Usually not...
Wide Awake is different. It is a very good song, with thoughtful lyrics, good music...if you like the song, I would strongly suggest looking up the music video on youtube. It is very good! Almost everything in the music video has a reference to past songs and music videos of Katy Perry's.
Enjoy a good song!

I like the song "Wide Awake" but don't know the rest of this album. Gave it to my sister. Wish Amazon made a check box (maybe I have just missed it) for gifts so that they don't ask for a review.

"Wide Awake" is a song pairing Katie Perry's dynamite vocals with some really true lyrics amounting to something like "hindsight is 20/20." The arrangement of the music is what caught my ear first and then I realized that the lyrics are meaningful and not the usual superfluous pop fare. If you get the chance (spoiler alert) check out the video on YouTube.com... I love where she slugs "prince charming" toward the end possibly taking a chapter out of her own life but entertaining nonetheless.

A great upbeat song. Katy Perry can address feelings in a way that takes the upbeat tone especially addressing falling from a high point in life. She looks at how a person crashed and burned in a situation in their life but instead of lying helplessly, they are wide awake as in their eyes have been opened to not have the wool pulled over them again so they can start again. I love Katy Perry's music and I feel she truly expresses herself perfectly through her music.

Katy Perry gradually went from an artist I thought would just come and go to being near and dear to my heart. What got me hooked was actually her first album (when I gave in and gave it a couple of spins). "Wide Awake" is a ballad about the falling out from a relationship, the highs and the innocent view you have on it from the start before going through certain aspects that make you "wake up" so to speak. If you watched the video you would know that the song itself has a bit of a dark vibe to it which I think is only the pre-cursor for her next album in which Katy will "get dark on" according to her (and I can't wait!!).

Ultimately, this is one of those songs that is catchy because of the "I'm wide awake" hook but still has some depth to it. I would recommend it especially if you are a fan.

4.5 stars.

I am not really a Katy Perry fan, maybe because I'm older and my music taste lies with the classic musicians. I have to say I actually like this song, because it has that classic rhythem to it. It's also my type of song I was surprised to hear from a talent of her age. It's a great song, with a great message.

THX,

hey Katy --- this is a pretty good tune and catchy and all and I liked it about 4.75 stars UNTIL you started injecting POLITICS into entertainment -- then I dropped it to 4. Remember, your peeps didn't hire you for your political opinions --- they hired you to have a good time and enjoy some tunes --- and maybe get away from the nonsense. Stick to the good tunes like this one --- and leave the politics at home ... in the basement .... in a dark corner of the basement ....

I love this song - it has great lyrics that describe an event that happened in my life. We all have things that happen in our lives that make us relate to a song, and I'm sure most of us will relate to this song at least once in our lives! Her voice is so pretty.
