"Last Call" is a song written by Katy Perry (then Katy Hudson) for her self-titled debut album, Katy Hudson. The song was serviced to radios along with "Search Me" on a CD for promotional purposes only.
Hudson explained the meaning of the song on her site in 2001.
- "The title practically explains everything. I was reading the book called "Last Call For Help" by Dawson McAllister and my dad came home one day and said I was supposed to write a song about someone's "Last Call." He didn't even know I was reading that book. I was thinking of all the stories in the book of how the kids were desperate for help and had tried so many areas. I wanted to do my own hotline so I used the number of the church my dad pastors, 899-3833. I made the character realize that this phone call to God for help was the best one he ever made."
