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.
