I've been listening to this a lot recently and think it has some great singles and wondering what's your favourite? Everyone seems to pick Hot N Cold or I Kissed A Girl but they're two of the worst tracks on the album imo!

HotnCold I think. Love it and IKAG but the latter has aged not as well as the former (still a big tune tho!)

HNC by a distance. 'Self Inflicted', 'One Of The Boys' and 'If You Can Afford Me' should have been singles. Although I completely understand the novelty of IKAG and understand why it was so successful, despite not really being too big a fan of it myself.

Hot N Cold heart.gif heart.gif
Also heard it on Heart this morning, jammed so much wub.gif

All four are at least 10/10 moments though and I Kissed A Girl used to be my favourite!

Gahh, so hard to choose between Hot N Cold and Waking Up In Vegas as they're two of my absolute favourites from her overall, but I think the former just edges it

I Kissed a Squirrel.

But, the best song on the album is the title track, followed by 'Self Inflicted'.

Hot N Cold was the only good single from this album, although WUIV is decent.

"Hot N' Cold" for me, such a fantastic follow up. I can remember at the time everyone was saying that after "I Kissed A Girl", that she was gonna be a one hit wonder, but then she followed up that classic, with another classic, and to this day I just still love it. Remember they both got overplayed to death at the time and did get kinda kick of them, but now I'm back to loving them again.

As for the further 2 singles "Thinking Of You", has grown on me, a little bit over time, but honestly still not that keen on it, it okay enough though. "Waking Up In Vegas" is another strong track and was really glad that it became a single, at first wasn't too sure on it, but when I saw the video, I instantly fell in love with it.

The album was really decent as well, with a couple of decent tracks = "One Of The Boys", "If You Can Afford Me" & "Self Inflicted", all are real standouts.

With This is How We Do and Birthday just under 200k, am I right I thinking Thinking Of You is Katy's lowest selling single, or would that be Unconditionally?

Likely to be 'Thinking of You' - it had sales of 125k as of January 2015 but that excluded streams, although I imagine her other sub-Silver singles have racked up more streams to keep them ahead.

I went with Thinking Of You, always just found it a lovely ballad and it has a nice melody too. I'm a big fan of how fun WUIV is too though!

The strangely-underrated-on-BuzzJack 'I Kissed a Girl' is by far my favourite of the 4. 'Waking Up In Vegas' second.

Its so hard to pick one from those songs, i think they're all great singles. I went with waking up in vegas just because its the one i'd listen to right now. One of the boys is one of my favourite albums and definitely my favourite album from KP heart.gif
