Katy Perry - 'The One That Got Away'

Lends itself better to comedy, than music

Man alive, is Katy Perry dreary nowadays, bleating on about some high-school crush who once gave her the heave-ho. More alarmingly, her dream beau is an inked-up, Mustang-driving meathead whose recipe for romance is a quick fumble in a car. What’s that, Katy? “I was dreaming you were my Johnny Cash”? For the love of God, woman, did you not see Walk The Line? You can do better, believe me.
