Teenage Dream: Top 10 Music Videos That Are So High School
Seniors in high school are graduating and having their last hurrah summer pool parties before shipping off to college (where more parties are bound to ensue.) In [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Katy Perry[/lastfm]‘s new John Hughes-esque video for “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F),” the perky singer hilariously and fantastically recreated a high school home party.
We’ve been feeling sort of adolescent lately (don’t blame us, blame the gorgeous June weather), so we created a list of the Top Ten Music Videos About Being A Teenager. Whether you were a cheerleader, a nerd, a punk, or a band geek, there is something here for you.
10. “Teenage Dream”-[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Katy Perry[/lastfm]
We know Katy Perry’s song for “Teenage Dream” is just a metaphor for crushing so hard you feel like a teenager again, but the halcyon quality of the video paired with the lyrics does a perfect job of re-creating that feeling of being in love for the first time as a teenager–and having that love reciprocated.
It’s a pretty awesome feeling.
