Katy Perry – The One That Got Away Review
The sixth single from the album ‘Teenage Dream’ helped Katy Perry make her mark in music history. ‘The One that Got Away’ was the sixth track from the album that hit the top spots in Billboard Hot 100. Because of that, she is now included in a half-a-century old list of albums that generated at least six songs in the top 10 list.
The song can be considered as an earnest and at the same time slightly predictable ode to one’s lost love. It can be compared to Perry’s 2009 hit ‘Waking Up in Vegas.’
It has just cemented her uniqueness in being comfortable in covering that territory again. Listeners certainly enjoy such tracks because those facilitate a candid peek into her early years.
It instantly earned positive reviews coming from even the harshest music critics. Most reviewers appreciated Perry’s serious tone in this piece. The song exhibits an audio texture that is not identified in any of her previous hits.
It is logical that it easily captured the hearts of high school and college students. But more importantly, adults can also relate to the lyrics and message of the song. Perry truly has a distinct sound that no other music artist can match.
