Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”: Explaining the hit using music theory.
I learned this song by ear on the piano a couple of years ago, and the author is right on, although I had never really thought about the fact that the chorus focuses on the tonic and that there is never resolution towards the I chord.#

Just learned at the doctor's that I lost ten pounds since I was last there in the fall. Yay!#
