It’s time for Tuesday Tunes and today I am spotlighting Katy Perry’s smash hit “Roar”. Written by the singer, the gist of the song is about standing up for you when faced with conflicts in life. It is something each one of us need to do at one time or another. It is important to have a backbone and not allow others to walk all over you. There is a certain determination felt throughout the song. The accompanying video promoting the song is creative genius and revolves around a Tarzan motif.
When I first heard “Roar” and seen the video I have to admit that I wasn’t immediately blown away by it like I had been by some of her past hits. The song “Roar” had to grow on me. It rose above the noise of the competition and finally stood out on its own merit. It demanded my attention and because of that I am spotlighting it today. Compared with the competition of other songs in the mainstream now, it is one of the best. Enjoy!
