This mid-tempo power-pop is the first single released on Katy Perry's 2013 studio album, Prism, and is set in a pop-rock style. Acclaimed as her most successful single to date, even when compared to her chart-topping single Firework, the uplifting lyrics are certain to bring that same high energy to your developing band performance.

    I used this arrangement for a primary school band. It has some ok points and the kids generally like it but it's not a winner and not worth the $. The simplification of the rhythms confuses some of the players. The alto sax part is repetitive and gives them no...

    time to shine. Unless your band is perfectly balanced and has strong tenor and bass sections it can sound a little feeble in parts. The percussion parts are quite good but there is a lot going on on the tom-toms which tends to overshadow the kit. Reassigning to congas and in my case rewriting a few parts made this work.
