Here, take a listen:
After I heard that, I started listening for the background music in pop songs a lot more often. And not even just KP songs. I mean, listen to "This is What It Feels Like"! Or "Counting Stars"! Or "American Girl"!
It turns out you can't download the "official" instrumentals from iTunes, but you can buy the karaoke versions, which are pretty similar, if not completely identical (depending on the version). Some of Katy's other songs I'm planning on downloading, as soon as I get around to buying a new iTunes card:
I love the heaviness of the notes, and how not like the original it sounds. I mean, I love the actual song too, but it's neat how the music is so different when there's no one singing over it.
When "Wide Awake" first came out, I didn't really like it all that much. But it's grown on me a lot. The instrumental helped.
Still one of my favorite KP songs. It sounds just like you'd expect it to.
Do you like instrumentals? What are your favorite Pandora channels?
