Riff: Katy Perry – “Roar”

Aug 14, 2013

I got the eye of the tiger, the fire, dancing through the fire/Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar

from Roar lyrics by Katy Perry

Referencing Survivor‘s signature hit, Perry returns to retain her stranglehold on the charts with another statement of self-empowerment that will no doubt leave Russell Brand’s ears burning. But its reliance on easy cliches means her cathartic display feels more like a bark than a roar; [LISTEN].

  • G

    FOR ALL OF THOSE THAT ARE GOING THROUGH A TOUGH TIME, THIS SONG IS NEEDED EMPOWERMENT AND I SING IT AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS!
