"Waking Up In Vegas"
16.05.09
52-43-36-31-26-19-25-32-47-50-50-40-45-52-58-73-73-83
18 weeks - 200,000 (chart sales)



Here are some Buzzjack opinions on it from when it first came out:
QUOTE(Rob S~ @ Feb 28 2009, 09:09 PM) *
Ok its a good rocking showstopper of a song but i don't like it at all. One of my least faves. TOY is definently better or Self Iflicted

QUOTE(RobBob @ Feb 28 2009, 09:57 PM) *
Hope it does well though, love Mrs Perry to bits. And, this is a really good track, shame for TOY though.

QUOTE(Tyler @ Feb 28 2009, 11:10 PM) *
Hot & Cold and IKAG were so much better then TOY and this.

This song is ok though, just extremely generic and just bleh. Ur So Gay should be re-released or One Of The Boys should be released. OR I'm Still Breathing.

Those are the only 3 songs on the album I like after HAC and IKAG.

QUOTE(mr_pmt @ Feb 28 2009, 11:38 PM) *
I like this song a lot, I think her album is pretty awful but she's been smart with the singles so far and released the album's best four tracks.

Performing this instead of 'Thinking Of You' was a bizarre decision to say the least though.

QUOTE(jark @ Mar 1 2009, 12:06 AM) *
?!?

It's just my opinion of course, but whilst IKAG and H&C were strong songs, they were very generic. Formula Dr Luke-type stuff...

Waking Up In Vegas has more personality. Still baffling that they're ignoring If You Can Afford Me. Her best song. By a MILE.

Was my fave back then and is still my fave now wub.gif

Basically pop-rock at its absolute finest, strong melody and lyrics and did well to recover from TOY underperforming. I was so happy it got to #1 on pop radio in the US.

This was good and really saved her from ProtoScreech ehich is one of the worst songs about and definitely her worst.

It was actually a big hit and all over tv and radio despite its peak. A turntable hit!!

My first memory of this is seeing it on a music channel whilst on holiday and it was instant love. This and Hot N Cold are both such fun, catchy pop songs, still my fave two wub.gif

I do kinda like this too, especially the video which is a lot of fun but once again it's not one of her best tracks for me. There are a few other tracks I'd have chosen as singles such as One of the Boys and If You Can Afford Me before this from her debut album.
