"E.T." as written by Joshua Emanuel Coleman, Max Martin, Lukasz Gottwald and Katy Perry....
You're so hypnotizing
Could you be the devil, could you be an angel
Your touch magnetizing
Feels like I'm floating, leaves my body glowing

They say be afraid
You're not like the others, futuristic lovers
Different DNA, they don't understand you

You're from a whole other world
A different dimension
You open my eyes
And I'm ready to go, lead me into the light

Kiss me, k-k-kiss me
Infect me with your love and fill me with your poison
Take me, t-t-take me
Wanna be a victim, ready for abduction
Boy, you're an alien, your touch so foreign
Its supernatural, extraterrestrial

You're so supersonic
Wanna feel your powers, stun me with your lasers
Your kiss is cosmic, every move is magic

You're from a whole other world
A different dimension
You open my eyes
And I'm ready to go, lead me into the light

Kiss me, k-k-kiss me
Infect me with your love, and fill me with your poison
Take me, t-t-take me
Wanna be your victim, ready for abduction
Boy, you're an alien, your touch so foreign
Its supernatural, extraterrestrial

There is this transcendental, on another level
Boy, you're my lucky star
I wanna walk on your wave length
And be there when you vibrate
For you I risk it all, all

Kiss me, k-k-kiss me
Infect me with your love and fill me with your poison
Take me, t-t-take me
Wanna be your victim, ready for abduction
Boy, you're an alien, your touch so foreign
It's supernatural, extraterrestrial
Extraterrestrial, extraterrestrial

Boy, you're an alien, your touch so foreign
Its supernatural, extraterrestrial

    General Commentfirst off, i LOVE this song. i'm really excited about the rest of the album. the meaning of this song is pretty obvious. the affect this guy has on her makes her believe that he's something other than human. he has her so infatuated that he MUST be something supernatural. metaphorically, obviously. has NOTHING to do with the illuminati or fornicating with demonic entities to gain a higher standing in society... it's JUST A SONG with a metaphor. anyone who believes otherwise needs to go back to their parent's basement and continue to read their comics & watch star trek. contemplate more conspiracy theories.

    good grief.

    anyway. awesome song. :)

    Song Meaningugh >< you guys its about Russell Brand! he's from "another world" of drugs, rampant sex, and no inhibitions, Katy comes from an insanely conservative background. Russell is English, foreign. Katy is American. its just a play on concepts. and also if you wan to look at it a little more literally because foreign people (although most often illegal immigrants) are called Aliens here. shes not really singing about having sex with little green men, people. come on. its not that hard to figure out

    General CommentI know what you're thinking. Katy Perry didn't write Trock, but hear me out.
    "Could you be the devil?
    Could you be an angel?"
    Didn’t Reinette, in Girl in the Fireplace, say something like this?

    "You’re from a whole other world
    a different dimension"
    Obvious reference is obvious. Different world = Gallifrey. Different dimension, TIME is the 4th dimension. HE IS A TIME LORD.

    "You’re so super sonic"
    Um. Sonic screwdriver, bro.

    "They say be afraid you’re not like the others"
    Didn’t Martha’s mom say almost exactly this?!

    "Infect me with your love, and fill me with your poison"
    This one’s a little backwards, Katy. The Doctor and Rose’s first kiss was when the DOCTOR was getting “filled with poison” (aka taking the vortex out of Rose).

    "I wanna walk on your wave length and be there when you vibrate for you i risk it all"
    This reminds me of The Parting of the Ways when Rose decided that she’s going to risk everything for the Doctor. “Be there when you vibrate” could also be interpreted as “be there when you regenerate.” Which she has been. She’s been there when he regenerating into Ten and right before regenerating out of Ten.

    Whatever. this might sound like a fangirl swooning at a song that is vaguely about Doctor Who, but remember who Katy Perry is married to. Russell Brand. And I hope he’d show her the best of British pop culture, which arguably is Doctor Who.

    General CommentFirst off, I like the song because it has a catchy beat that makes you want to dance. However, the song disturbs me because when I analyze this song I notice that its playing on the weak, submissive - very passive gender role that this society finds "sexy" for women. For instance: "You're so supersonic/Wanna feel your power/ Stun me with your laser" coupled with "Take me, t-t-take me/ Wanna be your victim" - these two stanzas - or verses - use hostile words to describe this dynamic they have. She's pleading to be "taken" and she wants to be victimized. This is not at all empowering to women. In fact it sets up a very narrow view of what makes a woman sexy. It's superficial, and ultimately it perpetuates a dangerous stereotype that it's okay to victimize women. I'm not saying this was intentional. I'm also not saying that the man she sings about is abusive. It's just interesting that in this society it's sexy when women follow the "subservient" dynamic in a relationship. But I know a lot of people love this song - I'm not trying to crap all over it - I like it too, the composure of the music and the premise of the song are wonderful... I just wish she would have sent a better subtextual message.

    My OpinionFact: Katy Perry's "E.T." is about the Doctor. Thus; Fact: Katy Perry met the Doctor.

    General CommentAmazing song..but..
    Can anybody say "tATu"?
    Listen closely, it's quite similar to 'all the things she said'. Not excessively so, though, it's just the chorus and the bassline that sound similar.
