I keep going back and forth between liking it, and not knowing what I'm listening to. I think she sounds really good herself... but I think I'm not super sold on the arrangement. Thoughts?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWqbzeF3Y28

RippedMan said: "Why does this exist?"Both of Pasek & Paul recent hit albums have come up with "Deluxe" albums, with pop-celebrities covering The Greatest Showman and then this. Wonder if we'll see a La La La Land (with an extra La, because I'm very good at stupid puns and explaining my bad jokes unironically).
This would have been more exciting 5 or 7 years ago, to have Katy Perry. Now it feels a little desperate.
I didn’t think it is horrid, but it’s definitely not an improvement on the original, but then again I think the original is pretty much perfection. It also doesn’t do much different or interesting with the song, but I think it’s serviceable. Of course, I suppose I could be considered a Katy Perry fan so I might be more forgiving than others.Of the bonus tracks, only “Part of Me” and “In The Bedroom Down the Hall” resonate with me. At least so far. The acoustic version of Disappear is also very nice. Maybe repeated listenings will reveal more resonance to the other bonus tracks. But I absolutely love Part of Me.P.S. I’m seeing a university production of Dogfight tomorrow afternoon. I’m looking forward to it. It’ll be my first time seeing it and I don’t believe I’ve heard the music before.
Was no one who could actually sing available?
I'm actually quite a fan of her voice, and having seen her live with just a guitar, I think she's got an interesting quality to her voice. But, as a fan, she does seem an odd choice for this. RE: "Dogfight." I think that is their best work, and am curious to hear your review. I listen to it every now and then, and kind of wish they would take another look at it .
Enjoyed Dogfight as well and listen to it periodically. Hope we get to see it at Encores Off Center soon.
this exists because they wanted to highlight 'Waving Through Windows" for the national tour which is now going on...and i love it!!..KATY PERRY knocks this wonderful song out of the park...
What an a horrible sound. Oh my God. However, the other bonus tracks are excellent and are not garbage.

I listen to it every now and then, and kind of wish they would take another look at it ."Since a couple people here expressed interest and it seemed ridiculous to start a new thread even if my post doesn’t fit the original intent of this thread, I just wanted to share my brief thoughts on Dogfight after seeing the University of Oklahoma’s production at the matinee today. I was thoroughly impressed. It was a 3/4 in-the-round theater and I was front row so it was very intimate. The set was minimal, yet effective. The cast was phenomenal, especially the actors playing Birdlace (Daryl Tofa) and Rose (Katja Rivera Yanko). I laughed, I applauded at least a couple times with solidarity with the female characters, and I teared up a couple times. What impressed me most is that I find very few similarities between P&P’s other works although I did feel some homages to other musical theater predecessors (Sondheim’s Sweeney in some brief passages, most notably). All in all, I had a great time. And for only $35. I’m thinking about going again.
