Firework is undoubtedly my favourite song of 2010! I love the lyrics; they are so dreamily uplifting and positive. I also absolutely love Katy Perry’s look, she carries it off so well; am v.envious of her glossy black hair (despite bleaching my hair blonde), and the colourful wigs she sported in the dreamy California Girls video are fabulous! Infact, I want to be her; except she is quite odd in interviews and I don’t fancy Russell Brand! ;). Katy co-wrote Firework, and has said that the song is influenced by a novel called ‘On the road’ by Jack Kerouac; I’ve not read the book but apparently it is about a road trip….either way it is a lovely little anthem, an inspirational pop song….
