I've had it on repeat since the second it leaked. I literally drove around blasting this for a good 45 minutes. The demo was only the beginning. On the first listen, I'll admit I was turned off almost instantly. I felt like the song had lost the pure kinky sexiness to it.
Then on the second listen it clicked. I just closed my eyes, leaned back and I sort of pretended I was having phone sex and let the song speak to me. If you're a wildly explorative person, sexually at least, you'll understand the kinky S&M idea behind the song. I think even S&M (the Rihanna song) sounds tame in comparison to this song. The metaphors in this song are wildly subverse and I think its honestly one of the most genius pop songs written and recorded.
If she releases this as a single, I can see this just being HUGE. INSANELY HUGE. Her biggest sinlge yet.
But I am of course biased.

Yeah, I agree with that. While "The One That Got Away" did hit #1, it just didn't have the impact that the first five hits did. I really think that if she would have stopped there and came back with a new album in 2013, she could have avoided wearing out her welcome.
But I suppose if the songs are good, we shouldn't complain too much.
Yeah, she's really pushing it. At this point, I don't think the quality of the song matters. The fact that this is technically the 8th single Katy Perry has released consecutively and looking how POM performed on radio, I doubt this will make top 10. This is PASSED Rihanna level.

I'm sorry, but I cannot stand her vocals on this song. I think it's her trademark word enunciations that kill me the most. That and the "dressing up" examples she uses are so cliche. She could have gone so much furthur with this song (it's similar to "3", in that regaurd).
Production wise, this is an album track, at best. The chorus is pretty bad. Alas, this probubly WILL go #1 on the Hot 100
I like this song but it is nowhere close to "Erotica".
And I agree with you guys, an 8th single is a bit much even though I've been a fan of all of them. She should've stopped after LFN to take a break and record a brand new album. This complete confection thing was ridiculous.
