"According to You" is the debut single by Australian guitarist Orianthi from her second studio album, Believe. The song was written by Andrew Frampton and Steve Diamond, and produced by Howard Benson. It was released in Australia in late October 2009. As it quickly gained popularity, it was sent to mainstream radio stations in the United States and Canada in November 2009, later making impact on rhythmic radio,[2][3] and finally to adult contemporary radio. Orianthi performed this song on So You Think You Can Dance, on 19 November 2009[4] and on American Idol on 17 March 2010. It was released in the UK on 6 September 2010. The song was also made available as downloadable content for the Rock Band series on 4 May 2010.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Marc Klasfeld and begins with Orianthi alone in her bedroom with a guitar for the opening lines of the song. The video then follows her to a photo shoot, a house party where her band is playing and two concerts, as well as a gray room where she is alone during her guitar solos. The video ends as a bookend of the beginning, with her alone again in her room as she plays guitar to herself.

A guitar arm is attached to the camera and is seen throughout the video and is being played by someone as if they are playing guitar hero.
