  1. Lovely acoustic performance of Thinking of You on American Idol:

     
  2. Her duets with the contestants have been the highlight each season.

    I really do want that acoustic album. I also would like some greatest hits type affair where she reimagines her hits as acoustic songs. It's time for The One That Got Away/Thinking of You mashup from the Prismatic Tour as a studio recording. Also Part of Me, Unconditionally, and Firework have had really nice acoustic arrangements. Obviously no one is jonesing to hear Birthday or Last Friday Night as acoustic songs, but there are plenty of album tracks like Ghost, Resilient, Pearl, and I'm Still Breathing that would translate great.

  3. Maybe her greatest performance ever? Genuinely gave me shivers.
     
  4. Comparisons are easily done
    Once you've had a taste of perfection
    Like an apple hanging from a tree
    I picked the ripest one... I still got the seeds

    You said move on, where do I go?
    I guess second-best is all I will know

    Cause when I'm with him I am thinking of you, thinking of you
    What you would do if you were the one who was spending the night?
    I wish that I was looking into your eyes

    You're like an Indian summer in the middle of winter
    Like a hard candy with a surprise center
    How do I get better once I've had the best?
    You said there's tons of fish in the waters so the waters I will test

    He kissed my lips, I taste your mouth
    He pulled me in, I was disgusted with myself

    Cause when I'm with him I am thinking of you, thinking of you
    What you would do if you were the one who was spending the night?
    I wish that I was looking into your eyes

  5. I love how much she loves Thinking of You. Taste!
     
  6. What a stunning performance of one of her best ever songs.
     
  7. Thinking of You transcends most lyricism. Truly a perfect ballad. It’s not recognized enough for the deserved classic that it secretly is.

  8. Also one of her best videos. A romantic period drama with Katy at the height of her pin up glamour, giving a starring role to a gay male lead. What a trailblazer.

  13. I think Katy has to be one of the most improved vocalists in pop. That sounds shady but I don't mean it that way at all. Her voice has gotten so much better with age. She has so much more control.
     
  14. I agree in a way, but I don't think she could pull off a performance of 'Brick By Brick' the way she used to. Though I'd love to hear her sing it now!
     
  15. Just returned to the Smile for probably the first time in 8ish months.

    It took all of my strength not to flip over to Side B after Daisies (skipping Resilient and Not The End of The World). But apart from those two, I really think this was a great project that deserved more and was hampered by it's poor singles/promo handling.

    Never Really Over, Cry About It Later, Teary Eyes, Daisies, Harleys In Hawaii and Only Love are all career highlights to me.
