With Labor Day (the unofficial end to summer) just passed, appropriately enough Robin Thicke’s reign on top of the Billboard Hot 100 has finally ended. It’s hard to argue the fact that “Blurred Lines” was the song of the summer given its incredible 12 week run. After two weeks in the runner-up slot, Katy Perry’s “Roar” overtakes Thicke’s huge global hit. “Roar” becomes Perry’s eighth No. 1 of her career.
I thought it was the perfect time to look back at her career and rank all her chart toppers. For me, “Teenage Dream” is by far her best. Like leaps and bounds. No matter what version, remix or cover by another artist, the track is a winner. I never thought, Perry could release a more irritating single than “E.T.,” but she has. While clearly millions have warmed up to “Roar,” I still find it utterly irritating. Maybe I’ll change my tune in a couple of months, but currently, it’s my least favorite track by Katy. Check out how all her other hits rank.
