"I Kissed a Girl" was regarded as the song of the summer of 2008. The smash made Katy a star, peaking atop the Hot 100 that summer. While some critics argue that Katy co-opted homosexual themes for a pop hit, the catchy song is clearly iconic for its sexual exploration and provocativeness. 

Below are some notable lyrics, per Genius.

🎶I kissed a girl and I liked it. The taste of her cherry chapstick. I kissed a girl just to try it. I hope my boyfriend don't mind it. It felt so wrong, it felt so right. Don't mean I'm in love tonight. I kissed a girl and I liked it. I liked it.🎶

Some view "Firework" as a campy pop song, but it remains one of Katy's biggest #1 hits. The song has also gone on to become a self-empowerment anthem. The smash was nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance and Record of the Year at the 54th Grammy Awards.

Below are some significant lyrics, per Genius

🎶'Cause baby, you're a firework. C'mon, show 'em what you're worth. Make 'em go, "Aah, aah, aah." As you shoot across the sky-y-y. Baby, you're a firework. C'mon, let your colors burst. Make 'em go, "Aah, aah, aah." You're gonna leave them all in awe, awe, awe.🎶
