I sure miss 90's dance music, but this untalented bitch can't do it justice.
It's so sad that people like Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Rihanna are killing the charts right now. Tone deaf people like these used to be only one hit wonders, but right now it seems like they're here to stay and aren't going away anytime soon.

Because everyone in the 90s had perfect pitch.
I liked the song. I can't see putting Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus in the same category.
I like her, but that's fucking awful.
I couldn't even finish listening to that abortion. Can anybody do ANYTHING without Autotune anymore? It's beyond ridiculous.
"Her" music is so dead sounding. But I suspect that is the point.
I suppose it has a vaguely early 90s beat, but a lame, generic kind of early 90s beat. Nothing like some of the better dance music from that era.
I've said it a million times, but this is why the music industry is shit and has been shit since the late 90s. NOTHING original anymore and no new sounds. This song has a beat that could have been heard in the early 90s. Most music we hear today either samples beats or are "inspired" by beats from the 70s, 80s and early 90s.
I don't understand why someone can't come up with new musical sounds.
As for the vocals, the falsetto lyric "I'm walking on airrrr" is nice but the rest of Katy's notes are abrasive to the ear.
If you all knew how much work and man hours it took to make Katy sound like that on the record, you'd be shocked. It sounds like one voice, but it's layers and layers and layers of effects, vocaligning, Melodyne copies that are harmonized, backup singers, etc., just to make her sound decent. And her voice after all that is still pretty weird to listen to...not exactly pleasant. Katy is like Britney x 10000....Katy can't sing for SHIT. But she has "artistic vision" and is basically just a very good project manager.
Well, the 1990s are in vogue again, but like others have stated, I can't stand her.
I gave this another listen and determined that this is a good song. Updated early-90s house music with a modern edge and weird, obtuse lyrics. Knowing Katy, though, I'm sure the "Walking on Air" is in reference to summoning demons or how she felt as the result of MK-Ultra drug-induced psychosis. Write what you know, right?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
