[pro-player width=’420′ height=’300′ type=’video’][/pro-player]
Teenage Dream” is a song by American recording artist Katy Perry. It was release as the second single from her second mainstream studio album of the same name on July 23, 2010 through digital distribution. Perry and Bonnie McKee wrote many songs with a youthful theme in mind, but they were rejected by producers Benny Blanco and Dr. Luke. Blanco showed them The Teenagers‘s single “Homecoming”, and McKee imagined “Teenage Dream” as a throwback song to the euphoric feelings of being in love as a teenager. They met with Max Martin in Perry’s hometown of Santa Barbara, California and started writing the track, which Perry later described as a pure moment for her. After Perry recorded her vocals, McKee presented her idea and the chorus was rewritten. Perry also described the song as reminiscent of her youth while contemplating her future marriage to boyfriend Russell Brand.

“Teenage Dream” is a midtempo pop song with a retro sound. Perry starts singing in a high voice and her vocals grow stronger as the song progresses. Lyrically it talks about being with a lover that makes one feel young again.

The music video for “Teenage Dream” was filmed in Santa Barbara in July 2010, and was directed by Yoann Lemoine . Perry planned the concept along with the songwriters during the sessions. Pictures from the shoot feature Perry kneeling in the sand looking at a man (played by Josh Kloss) wearing speedos, while others show her kissing the man in a hotel pool. She commented about the filming on her Twitter, saying, “That’s a wrap for Teenage Dream! So gorgeous […] In my hometown. I got to cast all my friends in the new music video for Teenage Dream = amazing insanity.”
